Hey Guys,

Ive been attempting to use my Nokia 5800 as a webcam using the Smartcam Application. Ive managed to connect the phone to the computer using wifi, and I can see clear video on the application itself. Ive also attempted to setup on the MSN setup thing, (Tools > Audio and Video Setup), it works there too.

But when I start a MSN video call, it becomes extremely blurred, and full of lines.

Any ideas as to the problem?

I've disabled all firewalls and antivirus, and its clear that the phone is transferring to the computer app. Just not going from the computer app to MSN video call.

Thanks in Advance =)

Use a real cam

The phone more than likely doesn't have the processing power to handle a video call, connect to the PC, and run MSN all at the same time.

To quote Speedy - use a real Cam.

The Phone (Nokia 5800) easily and happily connects to the pc using wifi. It has no issues, and has lots of spare resources.

The problem im facing is connecting MSN to the Computer application...
