Thanks for replying, I do appreciate it. Using XP IE8, testwebcam gives 2 still pics, no video.
Right-click the pic you see in testmycam.
Then click Settings.
Go to the fourth tab for Camera.
See if Integrated Camera is selected. If not, select this option. Refer to this page: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/troubleshoot-games-video-audio-flash.html#main_Webc am
(It's for Mac; but will help you to locate the option.)
Also, please let us know what you see in the second box of the following page: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html
The tab for camera says "VideoCAM eye" which is my webcam.
The second box tells me Version 188.8.131.52 Windows XP 32 bit Internet Explorer.
This sounds like a reported bug against certain webcams and the latest version of Flash Player. When you have a minute, could you vote for the following bug?
