In the new msn/wlm 9 the webcams always look really small (maybe just under twice the width of display pic and a little higher than them) but it just looks really small when viewing them, is there any way to make it bigger? In the old msn you could choose small, medium or large.

thanks

hi, thanks for the reply. I've tried going to the arrow and selecting size but the only size listed under there is 'small', I would have expected there to be medium and large as well but there isn't, which is odd. Actually, the display pic's only have the options of small and medium too, is that wrong as well? ie should large be there with them?

I should add that this is when viewing cams, not showing cams. I haven't tried showing one

I had the same problem. I do it using the software that came with the webcam. If Its inbuilt , right click go to properties and then mirror image. msn_happy.gif

Changing Webcam Size

In a webcam conversation, click the little arrow to the top left of the webcam image



Once you have done this, scroll down to the menu option called "Size" and select whichever size you require

thanks a lot Stigmata but that's just confused me even more lol I've just tried that, going down to size but while you have the options of small, medium or large, i've only got small, the other two simply arent there at all msn_confused.gif any idea why that might be? They were there in the older versions of msn

There seem to be even bigger problems, such as not being able to put the webcam on (because the texts enabling the camera are just grey and not clickable).

Only the line for video call works, not if you just wan't to enable webcamera or request someone else to do it. And in video call you can't see your own camera footage, it just shows like you didn't have camera. Tested it twice with a friend.. Friends weren't able to ask for webcam either who had 2009.


The buttons just won't work.. no reason for that, just a bug.

This version 2009 is just cursed when trying to use webcam.. I only got it on when a friend with 2008 version requested, and I had the annoying mirrored view on as well... msn_sleepy.gif

yeah the other thing i noticed about the webcam thing was i was on cam to a friend the other day and it apeared a mirror image to me so text was backwards on cam looking at cam from my end.. but his end cam was the right way so he could read text fine without having to read it backwards msn_confused.gif

strange stuff with WLM 9 and webcams hopefully the WLM team will notice our comments and nagging and sort it out sometime. i have sent them some feedback on it but they have 1000's of questions chucked at them i am guessing so who knows if they will read it and check it out.

Where did you send feedback? Just asking if there's some official way to do it / email whatever.

I think if you click on the Help menu in WLM there should be an option to send feedback there.

On this new 2009 build, you only get a small or medium option. I did see a full screen option elsewhere on the chat page, but I cannot find it now...
