  1. Does anyone know how to fix this problem,
    My webcam used to work before Im installed Live messanger and before I update my Firewall and now I just only can use audio connection.

    Thank you for any feedback

    Apparently you need to enable your firewall to allow port 5100(TCP).

    access both remote an local would look like
    allow in/out TCP any source, any dest, port 5100

    Are you on SP2 with the default Windows Firewall? if so,
    Launch the wirewall program cp->firewall
    click the exception tab
    at the bottom, click ADD PORT
    enter a name for this sevice in line one
    and 5100 as the number
    click ok ​
