Ok so my webcam works fine for local applications such as skype. But say I wanted to use something like stickcam or chatroulette or play a web cam game online. So i go to these sites and you get that little flash popup that says "allow flash settings" and you can allow or deny. whenever i click allow It immediately crashes the browser im using. Ive tried chrome, IE, and firefox all crash. IE and Chrome say theres a problem with the plugin shockwave flash. I have installed and re-installed Shockwave flash, Flash player numerous times. Both are the most current versions. I have Installed and reinstalled webcam software and drivers for my built in HP webcam. Im so incrediblely frustrated it is insane! I think that ive had this problem from day one if that means anything. Ive also installed directX too.
