Adobe Connect Webcam Problem

Q: Adobe Connect Webcam Problem

Hi, I have a problem that appeared on your forum but has now expired. I want to use a webcam with Adobe Connect. An image appears but it is upside down. When I try to share the image with others, Adobe Connect crashes.
All software is up to date: Adobe Connect, Flash, Webcam software IE.

I bought a new camera, (Logitech 170), installed it and disabled the laptops internal camera. Rebooted several times.
The problem is precisely the same with each camera.
Perhaps it is an add-on in IE?

Appreciate any help.

Preferred Solution: Adobe Connect Webcam Problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an Adobe Connect meeting scheduled for tomorrow, and when I click on the link to test my connection to Adobe Connect, which I just installed, I get this message- what can I do? I am connected to the Internet, so Firefox
does have permission to access the Web.
I attempted to connect using this link, in an email, and got the message below:
If you have never attended an Adobe Connect meeting before:

Test your connection:  


"Hmm. We?re having trouble finding that site.

We can?t connect to the server at meet94924985.adobeconnect.com.
If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.
    Check your network connection.
    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

This isn't a real USB webcam or built in one.  It's one of those video 2 webcam programs like coolwaremax webcam max or Manycam.
It's where you can play a video and transmit it as a webcam on services like yahoo or other online cam sites.
It was working fine for many months until a week ago.  One day, it just wouldn't connect anymore to any site such as Yahoo.  I double checked it on my 2nd computer it and works
fine there still, but on my main computer, something must've happened that has conflicted or interferrred with the driver?
When I go to yahoo and look at "camera source" it'll say it's: Microsoft WDM Image Capture (Win32), Version: 6.1.7601.17514
instead of saying "webcammax capture" like it does on my 2nd computer.
I've tried smart uninstall with Yamicsoft, and reinstalled different versions with reboot, but nothing works....still the same "cam not detected/found" and it says the source is: Microsoft WDM Image Capture (Win32), Version: 6.1.7601.17514
Does anyone have any clue what is causing it not to connect?

Hi Everyone, I am having problems with the notebook webcam. When I open Cyberlink YouCam 5, I get the following message:"YouCam found a new webcam (HP truevision). Do you want to begin use it?" If I click "yes" the camera starts working for 1-3 seconds and then the warning message appears again. The same problem occurs when I try to open the webcam with Skype under "Tools>Options>Video" I have restored it to factory settings twice but the problem persists. I have tried updating and installing new drivers offered by HP Support Centre, with no results. Anyone could help me out with this issue. Is there anything I can do to fix this?  Thanks,Riccardo

Hi all,

I originally had a JL550A Toy Camera that worked, then one day it stopped. Whenever I opened it in MSN Messenger, ArcSoft Video MVP, or the computer's Camera/Scanner application there would be no streaming video.

I thought the 5 year old webcam just ran it's course so I bought a new one. It was a Logitech QuickCam Express. Whenever I turned it on, it would play for about three seconds and then I would get a blue screen error. I figured another faulty camera, so I returned it.

This time I bought a GE MiniCam Pro (either a 98067 or a 98667). Same problem as the first camera I had. No video, no nothing. I installed the driver from the website and the cd. Nothing. A little "MiniCam Pro: Connected" button is on my toolbar. When I plug it in to the USB, the "found new hardware" balloons go through and says its ready for use. No dice. When I pressed the button to take a snapshot I got "Error During Capture, Error Code=00000000." I checked the device manager and nothing is out of line. I've gone in safe mode and installed, and when I went back into the regular mode I got "This Graph Cannot Preview," and other than the button on my toolbar that says the cam is connected, no other devices recognize it anymore, let alone stream video.

I'm at the end of my rope and will convert to any religion the prayers of which will fix this darn webcam. Any help is greatly appreciated! I have Windows XP Home Service Pack 3. Thank... Read more

It is probably the auto update feature in Acrobat accessing the web to search for updates.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, couldn't tell where to put it. I have WinXP.

I've had this issue for awhile now and nothing seems to change it. Adobe cannot update because 'there is no internet connection.' But there is, I'm here right now...
Yahoo messenger cannot 'download files, check firewall settings'. But again...nothing I do lets these work.
I have turned off each firewall, I've put yahoo and adobe in the allowed/trusted lists.
I have Comodo and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, my Windows firewall has been off for years. So...what the heck is going on, how can I get anything to work properly??

My webcam freezes after a few minutes in a meeting.  If I turn off the camera and turn it back on, it just appears black.  The only way to get the webcam to work again is by exiting and rejoining the meeting.  I did a clean reinstall on my computer and Adobe Connect and my webcam worked until my computer upgraded to Windows 8.1. Hardware, Software, desktop configuration:-   Notebook: Lenovo Yoga 13-   Operating System: Windows 8.1, 64bit-   Webcam:1.0M 720p HD integrated webcam-   Browser: Firefox 36.0.4-   Adobe Connect Add-in Version: WIN 11.9.972.8-   Adobe Connect: 9.4.1I have been working with tech support at my program for the past few months, but we haven't been able to figure out the problem.If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate i

A:Adobe Connect camera freezing

We see this freezing camera issue too. We believe it is related to the other Windows 8.1 issues with Adobe Connect. Here's a forum thread discussing Windows 8.1 issues; http://www.connectusers.com/forums/topic/10006/recording-issues-with-connect-922-and-windows-81/ Adobe has suggested the Windows 8.1 issues would be fixed in 9.3 and 9.4 but they weren't. They are now telling us it will be fixed in Connect version 9.5, due out later this year.

I not able to watch recorded lectures on Adobe Connect. Other people are able to do so, however.

I have tried everything on Adobe's website to solve this issue. I have also tried uninstalling the applications and re-installing them. I reset the laptop this morning, but to no avail. This is a new computer, which got delivered 3 days ago.

My exams will be over by Dec 11. I have 44 days to watch the lectures, study and appear for assignments. I had taken two days' leave from work to catch up on my studies. Those days have been wasted trying to open a single lecture.

I would be very grateful, if someone could help me in sorting this out.

Thank you for your valuable time.

Lenovo A7 touch screen i5 running win7/64, avast antivirus,  About 6 months ago, lost the ability to cut and paste files among directories.   I Googled the problem and found lots of solutions not at all relevant to me.  sigh.  A pain, but sort of livable-with.   Now in the space of 2 days, Skype wont recognize my webcam and dropbox and Internet Explorer both do not think I am connected to the internet at all.  I have done the standard reinstall / update programs, uninstall/reinstall drivers on Device Manager.  Malwarebytes scan ok.  Dropbox forum helper thought it might be avast antivirus, but I disabled that and still no joy.   Could not run F Scan at all. I think that the problem started when I tried to download some screen capture freeware.  I've cleaned out as much as I can, but still no joy.
You will also see from the logs that K9 is installed.  However, it is not working now.  I uninstalled/reinstalled IE 11 two days ago, and when I did that K9 deactivated itself.

A:Yahoo Messenger/Logitech Webcam Problem (was told could be a Vista problem)

Hello Matth3w

Welcome to TSF

I have seen the rest of your requests for help in different forums and not one person has asked you, Have you got Norton? Has your partner got Norton?

If so then you/your partner need to give Norton permission to allow the yahoo web cam facility.

The error message is actually being transmitted from your side telling the other computer that your blocking it because you haven't yet accepted it as a safe device/service

1. You can change these settings in through Windows Firewall

Control Panel\Security\windows Firewall

2. Select Change Settings and select the Exceptions tab.

3. Look down the list to find Yahoo Messenger or relating programs and check the box to the left of it

4. If you cannot find Yahoo Messenger or relating programs select Add Program and search through the Program File to add it.

5. Once checked select Apply and Ok

6. Reboot and try the webcam, you should now be able to use it without any errors. Let me know if its a go

I have a Toshiba Satellite c55t-a5218. Recently, my hard drive failed, and so my friend gave me a different one and I switched them out. I used the recovery disks I had made from the first hard drive to install windows onto the new hard drive. Ever since, my webcam hasn't been working. The light will come on and off randomly (it's on right now), but when I open the default "camera" application, it says "connect to a camera". I tried using a 3rd party application, also didn't recognize the camera. It's not even recognized on device manager, and I couldn't find a driver for the camera at all on the toshiba website. Is there anything I can do short of getting a new webcam on ebay and replacing it?

Please bear with me. Not only am I a novice Tech Support Guy Forum participant, I'm not as knowledgable as I'd like to be about computers.

I use two computers. One is my employer's; the other is my personal machine. Both utilize Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3. Both machines are set for Internet Explorer 8. Both also use Adobe Reader 9.2 All of the necessary updates are in order.
One website I visit frequently belongs to an organization that archives its newsletters and allows subscribers to retrieve full pages of past issues. All the subscriber needs to do is to type in the date of publication, and thumbnails of each page of that edition appear. (The organization essentially photographs the pages of each edition of the newsletter and makes the pages available as pdf's.)

The problem occurs when I use my personal computer. It doesn't happen all of the time, but it happens often enough to be annoying. When I find a page I want to retrieve and click on that thumbnail, the page comes up -- but with more than half of the text and photos missing. I also get an error message -- "Insufficient Data for an Image."

I went to the forums on the Adobe website, and learned that this error message typically indicates that the pdf file is corrupt. People with this problem are instructed to contact the file's creator.

That advice would normally make sense, except that when I use my employer's computer to retrieve the very same pages,... Read more

I have a Veo Webcam installed on a laptop running Windows XP Pro. The camera works just fine with its own software, but when I try to use with any other software, i.e. AOL(for video messanging), it tells me that the camera is in use by another application. Problem is, I can't see any application, even in the processes list, that would be using the webcam. I have no idea what's using the camera. It appears that nothing is, yet any application other than the camera's own application says that the camera is being used by something else.

Anyone know what would cause this?

Hello there. I am new to this. I bought my B50-80 over a month ago and it came with Windows 8.1. After a few days I upgraded to Windows 10. I then tested the webcam and it doesn't work - it doesn't even detect it. There is definitely a webcam as I can see it above the screen but I didn't test it when it arrived only after I upgraded to Windows 10. So I'm not sure if it's a compatibility issue or something else. I have searched for solutions and tried a few things  but nothing works. Does anyone have any ideas? If it's a hardware issue, how do I get into the laptop to check the connection. Many thanks for any advice. If there's any more information you need then do ask and I will provide it.Mike

Ok, I can't be alone on this....surely?

Having not used my webcam for a long time I had a go tonight. The clik that starts a webcam conversation seems to have gone. When I clik the webcam icon and choose >start video call, I just get 'Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70013)'

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You need to check with the HP support site for Windows 7 drivers and download and install any that are needed.

You may need a different region as I'm not sure where you're from.
