    Hi,

    I've just bought a Samsung R580 and the built-in webcam is working fine on skype and everything else except for msn messenger. When I connect on video chat with someone, I can see myself but they can't see me and I can not see them, checked my firewall settings- using Mcafee and windows live messenger has full access. I also tried it with my Logitech Quickcam, downloaded softwares too... same thing, I can see myself - webcam is working but people can't see me and I can't see them. Funny thing is it worked once briefly.

    And on another chat platform, video is connecting fine but unable to connect to server. It occasionally connects briefly then logs off in 2 minutes.

    OK after spending hours trying to fix it- webcam on windows live messenger, was falling asleep and it dawned on me :) found the webcam in device manager, uninstalled the drivers for built-in cam then restarted the system, they got reinstalled automatically and now it is working fine!
