I have tested the webcam with the Microsoft Lifecam software, Flash-based video chatting websites, and Yahoo! Did this solve your problem? It reminds me of the lower quality webcams that used to be the norm about 5 years ago. Show less Show more. I have a 3 year old Apple MacBook Pro, and its inbuild webcam is much better.

Then after a while the software didn’t want to run, so inevitably I had to reinstall. The unit itself is made with excellent quality, very stable sitting on edge of monitor or laptop. I’m afraid you can’t manually focus the camera, and the focusing it has is not the best so my advice to you is decide whether it is worthwhile looking at getting a new one and whether to spend lots of money on it.

Plus the mounting system doesn’t work very well on thin screen laptop screens. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. It works great, has a nice picture and good sound.

Microsoft LifeCam VX – 1000 Boxed.

As I said the install was a breeze. It has the best picture quality I’ve ever seen. How can you get the camera to focus? I have tried setting this webcam up on Windows Vista 64bitWin XP 32bit and Win 7 64bitThe software installs ok, but when I go to plug the VX into the computer, My computers cannot recognise the camera, something to do with the drivers.


The best thing I think though is the built in microphone. I have the same question 8. When the video preview begins, the program stops responding and closes. I miss chatting reetail my webcam!

All in all even if I had bought it brand new in the box, this is the web cam for me, no doubt. This item doesn’t belong on this page. At one point my LifeCam worked great. IAmDan Created on October 28, Did this solve your problem?

With one push of a button located on the kicrosoft of the webcam it will open up Live Messenger in seconds. Pushbutton on top of webcam brings up Microsoft Live Messenger, a feature I did not use. Then you’ll have to turn it the right way to get it back to normal but after a while you’ll get used to it.

No extra wire for the microphone, just the USB cable. My overall opinion; this is really a great webcam for home computers well actually any desktop at all but sometimes you get really annoyed when it goes fuzzy or when it won’t stay on the screen but if you have even just a little patience in you you will enjoy using the Microsoft LifeCam VX The same issue applies when initiating a video call, or after a call is established and I attempt to turn on the video.


I’ll take it back to the retailer and exchange it for one that licecam for Skype chats.

In reply to IAmDan’s post on October 29, Resolution is not the greatest so it is mostly for someone that wants to be able to use any and all social messaging programs Finished the whole process in about 10 minutes.
