Webcam issues - at my wits end!
Please, please someone help me.



I have a computer that runs Vista home baic and one that runs XP wSp2 and one without sp2.

I have a Phillips web cam that works on all machines. (Philips spc900nc)

The correct drivers and updates are installed. I can record and show my lil self on the recording software that philips has on all three machines.

I cannot, however, get any web site to allow the camera to broadcast on the Vista Machine. This is not just the phillips camera specific. It will not allow any webcam. I have tried more than one brand. I even tried a microsoft brand camera and I could not get it to work.

Sites like Live Video, Stickam, and UStream recogonize the camera and it says it is broadcasting but there is no video. Only sound will go through with the built in mic. Blog TV "sees" the camera when Adobe pops up and asks to access the camera, but then the Website says I do not have a webcam attached, when I do.

The ports for the website stream are open in my Windows Firewall on the vista machine. I have no idea why the webcam will not broadcast online over websites but I CAN get Skype to brodcast it on the Vista Machine.

I uninstalled the drivers and software and reinstalled them. I uninstalled the USB ports and let Windows reinstall them. I do not have any error messages in the device manager.

The webcam does not appear in my "scanners and cameras" folder and I cannot get the damn thing installed from there.

I checked the ports that one streaming site used and they seem to be open in my Firewall. I have a router but I unplugged and put my cable modem directly into the ethernet of my desktop.

Same thing. So if the router is blocking it, then something else on the PC is too.



I am stumped. Anyone have any ideas? I really need to figure this one out!
