The newest MSN is so terrible, so I went back to one of the older versions. Then I started getting errors all the time and it kept telling me to update... so I did unwillingly.

Now, my webcam NEVER works. It's important to me to be able to use MSN and the webcam. It works when I set it up in webcam settings, but will not connect.

Anyone know how to fix this? It's seriously driving me nuts.

Why is MSN needed to run a web cam?

It isn't unless all your contacts are on MSN.

I actually like the new version, but haven't tried the webcam on it yet. Have no idea why the poster is having this problem. If it works when you run the setup wizard it should work fine.

The only thing I can think of to suggest is verify that your contacts are on the same version as you. I have seen multiple instances with contacts on older versions not being able to use some of the features that the newer versions have. Perhaps the new version of MSN needs to have both users on the same "page" so to speak.

For webcamming though consider using Skype. Much better quality.
