Banned Camp
OK here is the deal:

I got a web cam (D-Link USB)and I am having trouble with it. As far as I can tell, I installed it correctly. But it only seems to work half way.

In eyeball chat, I can see myself in the preview window just fine. The problem manifests itself when I try to connect to anyone else.

I can see and hear them but they cannot see or hear me. Since the cam seems to be working and I know that my microphone is working, I think the problem is in eyeball. I have been through all the menus that are availiable and I just do not see and option that would seem to fix the problem.

I am fresh out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

I had the problem in messenger. It would setup just fine but when I used it it would not work. Turns out I was'nt saving the setup so each time it would try to use my TV card as the video device instead of the IBM camera. Save the camera and audio setup.
Might help.
