Some people will ask me...
When I use MPEG viewer in the Webcam, why can't I choose Modem or DSL options from the list?
It looks all disable, and keeps telling me DirectX need to be upgrade message.
Possibilities are three:
1. Your PC doesn't have DirectX 8 or higher version, or your IE browser version is too old.
2. You haven't click Yes to install Webcam Plug-in for the IE Webcam program.
3. Your Webcam plug-in has been damaged. Need to be reload it.
Answer 1: Go to Microsoft website and load DirectX8 from there. (Read Microsoft Agreement before you agree to install it)
Answer 2: When the first time access Webcam page, IE
will automatically download Webcam Plug-in for you. (see Step 5)
You need to click Yes to install plug-in, else you won't get any image at all. Also, if you have some Firewall program, it will prevent you to receive the plug-in program. If you do, please disable the firewall program when install the plug-in.
Answer 3: This is how you remove the plug-in.
|1||Please Close all the program first.|
|2||Go to Control Panel
If you use
If you use WinXP,
Go to Internet Options
|3||Click View Objects...|
|4.||If you do see,
Please highlight and press delete key to remove it.
Then, close all the windows until the desktop.
|5||Now, after remove it. Your IE should be like the first time
before you access to the Webcam.
You may try to re-enter your webcam to download your Webcam IE plug-in program.
Remember, click YES to install it.
