After you have installed your MSN Live Messenger, let's go preview your camera with it.

  • To preview your camera, you will need to go to "Tools" and then "Audio/Video Setup"

  • Next, you'll need to click "Next" after ensuring you have followed the instructions when prompted.

  • The next screen will let you preview the expected sound if you are using headphones or speakers by

selecting the head phones box (or not) and clicking on "Play"

  • In Step 2, you can preview the audio with the microphone you have selected.

  • In Step 3, you will see a preview of your camera in one window, as well the camera image displayed within the MSN window.
  • Please ensure that you have selected "X10 Webcam" from the "Select the Webcam you would like to use" dropdown menu.
  • Again, it is fairly easy to distinguish between the 2 preview panes - the X10 window will display virtual pan and tilt control arrows while the

MSN window will not.

  • Click on the "Finish" button when you are done.
