I set up a webcam (the kind you watch on a webpage) and sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. When it does work, the image refreshes the way it should and I can watch the webcam, but when it doesn't work the cam will refresh a few times at the start and then freeze and stop refreshing. Any idea whats causing it to work sometimes an not work at others? I am using a router, (microsoft mn-500) but I forwarded the ports for webcam xp (which is what I am using), the cam itself is the old version of logitech quickcam express (very old i know).
As a test I tried using my tv tuner as a video source instead of the webcam to see if that would work, and it worked perfectly every time. I also tried using video files stored on my computer as a source, and that worked to.
Do you think if I bought a newer webcam it would work?
