Preferred Solution: FACEBOOK messenger video call issues

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.)

Whenever I press the video call button, a notification appears which says "Turn On Camera. In your device settings make sure Messenger is allowed to use your camera." and has only two options "Cancel" and "Open Settings".
I went to Camera Privacy Settings and Messenger was already allowed by default to use it, but still whenever I press the video call button I get the same notification.
The webcam works fine on the facebook site.

On my Lenovo Yoga 530 with Firefox (latest) the video appears upside-down during Facebook video-call / video-chat. When I check the camera image with Windows Camera app or Skype, it looks normal. What could be the problem? In Facebook or even in Firefox I can not find any options to turn the video in to the normal way. Any idea?

Hi, I have been doing video calls with no problems until today. Instead of a picture of the person I'm talking to I have a picture of a webcam with a red cross through it. They can see me and hear me and I can hear them. My OS is XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit. Is this a problem from their side or mine? Thanks for your help.

A:Windows Live Messenger video call problem

i'm having the same issue, but from the other side of the coin. I'm calling someone and I can see and hear them fine, but they can't see me. I'm running win 7. I suspect it has something to do with the latest update for live messenger.

Come on Microsoft knock this crap off. My family and I will be moving to a different im provider, maybe google if they don't get their act together.

If anyone knows of a solution, i'd also be interested.

I m pretty confused, I hope I can still do video calls on yahoo.
I also got skype but yahoo for windows 8 seems a bit more similar to the messenger for windows 7...
Anyways, any help will be appreciated, thank u guys!!

Hello Tech Support Guy Forum,

I have been using MSN Messenger for years and enjoyed this IM program, but have been having problems using the Video Call option when trying to talk and see my contacts.
Whenever I select the Video Call action, the whole MSN Messenger freeze up and I will have to use the Task Manager to close it down.
If I choose the webcam invitation and the regular audio call, using each invitation by themselves and respectively, they work just fine.

I tried to go to Microsoft's support site, but seriously, it's a jungle. None of the FAQs were helpful to me.
My webcam seems to work just fine, but just not that function of MSN Messenger 2009.
Hope you guys can help me out (my system information is on my profile).

Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality (fixed)

Hi All,

I am having a few problems with webcam calls with my folks.

I have installed the latest versions of Skype and Windows Live Messenger on both machines but when using either one for webcam video calls their audio and video coming to me is absolutely fine and so is my video to them however my audio to them is delayed, juddery, and robotic/gravelly (as if i have a sore throat). It is the same in both programs.

Zone Alarm on both machines is configured to allow these programs to run as they wish but still the problem persists.

We both have broadband at speeds usually no lower than 3mb.

Any help apreciated.

A:Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality

skype is heavily dependant on bandwidth. I use it here in Iraq and with phone calls can be garbled if bandwidth is insufficient. However, it would seem in your case, the problem may be firewall related. I would ensure that all your ports are open for skype. I don't recommend zonealarm as it interferes with many programs.

Both the above named apps after finally getting the AU, will not actually load. they both self close before getting off the icon screen. I only discovered this when I went to check a notification from action center instead of loading up the browser. Now I was still getting notifications while they would not load but after uninstalling/rebooting, clearing app caches multiple time they have stopped even doing that which I expected. The notifications was the main reason I even had the programs, so I could get those notifications when I did not have the site open.

I have tried every solution google could also give me including clearing out manually some registry entries between an uninstall and reinstall and clearing out all Facebook windows credentials but nothing has made a difference.

In event viewer each generated 2 errors and between then an information entry.

Hello i recently installed windows 7 on my machine. When i have a pc-to-pc call in Yahoo Messenger the cpu stays at 80% and more. I have 2Gb RAM, amd x2 64 Dual core 5400+, 9600gt 512mb/256bit. I have no viruses, i have all the latest drivers installed, i have only a few software installed on my pc (nero, avast antivirus, yahoo messenger), i have firewall off, UAC off, windows defender off. What would be the problem ? My pc is full compatible with windows7. I never had this kind of problem in windows XP. How can it be possible that in Crysis my cpu stays at 60% with all the very high details and in Yahoo voice call at 80%+ ? I tryied to reinstall the Yahoo Messenger application...but still with no success.

Can you help me ?

Hi. First let me say that I do have working internet access. I use Firefox and works fine. My kid plays games and I play my Xbox 360 live at the same time. I currently do not have any virus softare running outside of the default XP firewall and updated Windows Defender program...with that said...

I cant connect using my Internet Explorer. When I open it it just times out and I get that blank "check you connection, check your address" message page. And this happened before i installed the newsest version of IE.

Also, I cant now connect with my Windows Messenger service, it trys to login then I get an connection error message there to, something like "check name, account" I think there was also something about a proxy server? Dont recal.

And, when I use firefox and go to www.gamespot.com...when I click on the videos to watch, i see in the WMP applicatin that its shows connecting...then buffering...then nothing...just goes blank and does not play...never used to do this before.

So please help...What is going on here? Why is this impacting only my WIndows internet type applications. I can play videos in other sites, just not gamespot.com... I cant launch my browser and connect, i cant launch the messanger since now i upgraded to the new one, and that one is integrated I think with IE...so there both dead.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Hi People!

I know the new Windows has a built in messenger system, but I think it's awful.
I can't get it to use my MSN account, it will only use my microsoft account, which is not the same e-mail address, and even if I could get it to do what I want, I'll still miss my taskbar and the flashing icons telling me who's talking to me. I also generally dislike the idea of not having a clear idea of which system you're 'talking on'. You just open a conversation, not knowing whether it will go through Facebook messenger, MSN messenger, whatever.
So I installed good old MSN messenger 8.5 beta. Then I tried installing Facebook messenger, as I don't like in-browser chatting (again; No taskbar, no overview). Doesn't work. Gives me an error 1603.
No solutions on the net so far.
Any ideas?

I tried to install the new Facebook Messenger for Windows, which according to what they say, works on Windows 7. I have the 64Bit Ultimate Edition btw.

But no matter if I download that Messenger directly on the Facebook page or from some other Website, I can't get it installed. I double click the file, Windows pops up and asks me (as usual) if I want to install that file, I say yes. Then you would think that something would come up next, but it doesn't.

When I check in Taskmanager, I see that the installation process just disappears out of the active Processes list after a few seconds. Everytime.

Has anyone else had a similiar problem ?

Thanks in advance.


A:Facebook Messenger for Windows

Facebook Messenger installs the same way as Google Chrome browser - through connecting to the Internet after you click on the *.exe file and downloading-installing the needed files.

Upon double-click of the FacebookMessenger.exe file, I had my Security Software pop-up and ask whether I let the program connect to the internet. Then a window "Initializing dowload" appeared and the app got downloaded and installed on my PC (Win7 x64 Ultimate).

The fact that the "Initializing download" window does not appear after you double-click the *.exe could mean that your firewall automatically prevents the program from connecting to the Internet and downloading the needed installation files.

Make sure you manually let the *.exe file through your firewall. If you don't know what firewall you have or you have the default Windows Firewall active, read this:

I have a 808 Canz Bluetooth Speaker that I use with my smartphone. Everything worked fine for my LG Optimus Zone 3 including music, videos, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, and Discord. I now have a new smartphone Lenovo Motorola e4 USA version. Everything works including music, iTunes for android, YouTube, and Discord, except for Facebook Messenger. Facebook Messenger still works and have sound on phone but not through the 808 Canz Bluetooth Speaker, yet music plays just fine on the same speaker with same settings. I have tried both Facebook Messenger as well as Facebook Messenger Lite on the Motorola e4 with no success, yet Facebook Messenger Lite still works with the same 808 Canz Bluetooth Speaker on my old LG Optimus Zone 3! I have tried using paired for Bluetooth use as well as plugging directly in jack on phone on both phones with no issues on the LG Optimus Zone 3, but no success with the Motorola e4.

So any advice? Is the 808 Canz Bluetooth Speaker just not compatible with Facebook Messenger on the Motorola e4? Do I need a different Bluetooth Speaker or is this simply an issue with the Facebook Messenger application itself?

My computer seems to be infected and the basic tools I am using do not seem to be removing the problem. When searching with google I get redirects to related looking links. I have run Spy-bot Search and Destroy several times in the last weeks. Each time it finds and supposedly removes a problem called facebook.messenger. However, it's back the next time I run it a few days later. I have also run Malwarebytes Anti-malware program, but it does not find any problems.

I suspect the problem came onto this computer because my son plays Terraria and Minecraft for which he downloads mods and addons. Does this seem likely? I'm running Windows XP and IE8.

While Facebook first announced at Microsoft?s Windows 10 Devices event in October that it was working on Universal Windows 10 apps for Facebook, Facebook Messenger and Instagram, the social network has yet to deliver all the goodies to all enthusiast Windows 10 fans. Last month, we obtained some leaked images of the new Facebook Messenger app for Windows 10, which is still in closed beta, but today we were able to download and install the app without being in the beta. Others have not been able to access it yet, however.

We were able to successfully download the app on one of our Windows 10 PCs and we just spent some time playing with it. Long story short, it feels very much like the Instagram beta app on Windows 10 Mobile which is nothing more than an iOS port. In our brief testing with the Facebook Messenger app on Windows 10, we saw that the app uses an adaptable layout and all the features (including notifications) worked reliably. It seems that the only big feature missing here but available on the iOS and Android apps are voice and video calls. Otherwise, it?s a pretty good experience overall. Please find the detailed features of the app along some screenshots below:

◾Get notifications so you never miss a message
◾See when you have messages waiting for you with a live tile
◾Send photos, videos, GIFs and more
◾Bring your conversations to life with stickers
◾Know when people have seen your messages
◾Create groups for the peo... Read more

It looks like this is a problem no one has encountered before.
I use the built-in Messenger app to chat on Facebook. For some reason, I create double posts in the app when the other person's status is "available" for chat. However, if I message someone who isn't online on Facebook, I don't double post.
These double posts aren't seen on Facebook's site, by the way. It's only me that sees it and is really annoying.

I've tried uninstalling, re-installing, signing out of my facebook on both People app and Messenger app then signing back in. I don't know what is causing it.

I've tried authorizing People and Messenger to connect with Facebook and Twitter several times. It finishes the connection authorization and tells me that it may take a few minutes for the changes to take place. The changes never took place. It authorizes each time but never really connects. Any Suggestions on getting this work?

A:People and Messenger wont Connect to Facebook and Twitter.


I wouldn't be surprised that it has to do with your region/geography and that this functionality is not enabled or something.

Are there any type of error messages or clues like that?

On a family members computer running Windows 7 when using firefox (most recent version) any time a video is played on either facebook or various news websites like fox news or cnn the video just shows up white while the sound is still playing. Additionally, players like the watch instant player on netflix wont allow pausing, the button to pause simply does not work. I have re-installed drivers, emptied the cache, turned on and off hardware acceleration on flash, various solutions found around the web. I'm at a loss, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
