    How do I get my built in webcam to work in programs such as AIM or any messenger program? When I press the video chat button, nothing happens.. they can not see anything :(

    I have AMcap.. it came preinstalled on my laptop, but I still cant get the webcam to work in messenger programs.. The webcam itself works, when I run AMcamp but that isnt video chatting... what am I missing?

    From what I know, there are two models to the webcam. There's the D-Max and there's the Azurewave. If you have the D-Max model, the AmCap will work but won't capture any pictures or videos. If you are looking for the drivers, try intels site for the Azurewave. If you looking for the D-Max, there's a post on this site that has the drivers. I have the D-Max and I can't get AmCap to capture video or pictures. My friend has the Azurewave and it works fine on his but the picture quality looks better on the D-Max.

    my webcam works fine, and captures video when I use AMCap but it captures the video in AMCap, its not like a live feed into video chatting... Do I need to run AMCap while I video chat??

    first of all the camera does not even work unless you install drivers manually
    1. browse the driver cd for the camera folder
    2. install the driver from the cd rather then from the autorun menu.
    i dont recall which driver from the cd is the right one becuase it has 2 of them. install them both. one will work. Your issues with messenger should be fixed after that
