    I was running Win 98 SE and an ATI-TV WONDER PCI video capture/tv tuner and was able to use it as a capture device in Netmeeting. I migrated to Win XP Home Ed. and downloaded the newest drivers for ATI (actually ATI Multimedia 7.1 software that supposedly supports Win XP - this download includes the drivers).

    I can get the ATI card to be the capture device in Windows Movie Maker and Windows Messenger. But it will not show as a device to be used for Netmeeting. As a matter of fact, if it is the only video capture device available in the system when NM is started, the video option is disabled. Video will still work in NM because I can use my Logitech QuickCAM as the device and everything is fine. I want to use my ATI-TV WONDER because the video quality is much better. I could resort to Windows Messenger, but the software claims that the other user must also have Win XP - unfortunately, the people I want to conference with have not upgraded.

    I have searched the ATI site thoroughly (and often) as well as Microsoft Knowledge Base and the Netmeeting site in particular. No one else seems to have had this problem. I am hoping that someone here will have an idea.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hiya

    I've had a dig around and found this in one of the newsgroups:

    http://groups.google.com/[email protected]

    From what I read, its as if ATI don't support NetMeeting at all, but don't tell anyone.

    Which Rage is it? There seems quite a few under Windows XP. Also, do you get any errors?

    Regards

    eddie,

    Thanks for the link to the forum post.

    I am not sure if your asking what card specifically I have by the "Which Rage is it?" question - however, here's the link to the product page for the card I have - http://www.ati.com/na/pages/products/pc/tv_wonder/index.html .

    I haven't been getting any errors. Capture works fine in Windows Movie Maker (also mentioned in the link you posted) and even RealProducer (though I am experiencing some audio difficulties there). It just doesn't show as a capture device in Netmeeting, though Netmeeting does recognize the QuickCam and I found in one of NM's .ini files a long list of video capture devices that it has settings listed for, some of which were ATI, but none the ATI-TV Wonder PCI. It's just strange that it works with Movie Maker and not Netmeeting.

    Thanks again

    Hiya

    Which version of NetMeeting do you have? I have found a site that is very indepth. Having the version will help narrow it down.

    When I try to run the install, I get an error "This version of Netmeeting cannot be installed in this version of Windows."

    Netmeeting seems to be part of the OS in XP.

    To answer the question more directly, there are not any service packs mentioned.

    Have a look at Tools\Options\Video\Video camera properties and see if the video capture device is your camera.

    Also, have a look here:
