MSN Messenger 7.5 and Watchport webcam problem


I'm running MSN Messenger 7.5 on Win XP SP2, and I have a Watchport USB camera. I installed the iucam220 file. After rebooting the computer, when I go to MSN's webcam configuration I see that the webcam is working. Yet when I try to open a video conversation, it fails. When I then go back to the webcam settings, I receive an error that the webcam is being used elsewhere.

The webcam does work because I see the video (and can record) in VDub, but, for whatever reason, it's just not working in MSN or Skype (I tried that too).

Any ideas?

  1. You can use Splitcam.

    This will allow multiple camera streams (you can use the cam in more than one program at once)... so this should eliminate the problem you're having.
