My webcam is working, but not with websites such as Chatroulette or Youtube.
My laptop is a compaq cq60-311SA with an integrated webcam.
The software installed when I purchased this laptop is working fine, and detects my webcam, and records, however, when I go to www.youtube.com and try to post a video response to anything, it does not work so well. It will load up the webcam, I can see myself in the webcam, but when I click record, it simply stays loading, no matter how long I leave it.
When I load up chatroulette.com, it simply doesn't even load flash player, and on facebuzz.com it gives me a message saying it can't detect a webcam.

Any ideas at all?
I have reinstalled the drivers off of compaqs website.

There are some steps to follow for Webcam with youtube. Think you need to use the QuickCapture software/online options. Plus Adobe Flash Player at latest level.

That video was no help at all, it had nothing to do with my problem.
Thanks anyway though.

Have you gotten the webcam working with a chat program like Skype or Yahoo Messenger?

There is supposed to be a new way to post a response since last month? I do not use it so good luck!

Yes, I have managed to use it with MSN messenger without problems.
I am not so concerned about getting the video responses on youtube, I am just quite interested in this chatroulette website. It looks like fun and I want to try it out, but unfortunately this problem is restricting me.
