PC Camera/webcam Connection Issue

Hi Everyone!

I had a call today from a customer who is trying to use a webcam with her PC. OS is Windows Vista. Customer has successfully installed the device driver for the webcam. When customer clicks on AMCap icon on the desktop, however, the error message, "8007045a: Cannot create video capture filter", comes up each time. I walked customer through the steps of disconnecting the USB cable from the webcam, rebooting the PC reconnecting the USB cable to the webcam, but the same error message keeps coming up. Has anyone else had the same experience with a webcam?

Thanks for any suggestions you can give me!

Thomas

Hi!

I recommend that you access the following website and read number 2. It gives a step-by-step description of how to resolve this type of error message. There is valuable information too on how to resolve other PC cam error messages:

First of all connect the

First of all connect the webcam to your USB drive. Check in the Device Manager (i.e. Right click on My Computer, select Properties, select Hardware, select Device Manager tab) whether there is any "?" mark on > Other devies > USB Device. Click on the "?" mark and click the "Reinstall driver". You will be taken to Installation Wizard. Select the option to install from a known source and click on Next. Select the installation from CD Rom or Floppy Drive and click Next. Computer will automatically take up the driver from the CD Rom and you will find your webcam is accepted by computer. Then ENJOY................

Hello Thomas,

Hello Thomas,
I have the EXACT problem and its not going away!
I got the same results as Mattias did above.

I have a hpdv6000 win xp sp3. the integrated webcam driver was reinstalled and i get this message. bought an external webcam and installed the drivers from the cd and installation went fine and the computer recognizes the webcam but when i open the amcam i get the same message!

so this is not a webcam issue really something in windows.. can you please give me some suggestions?
Thanks so much

Mesmo que já tenha

Mesmo que já tenha resolvido o problema, vai a dica: Clique em ok na segunda tela que aparece, em seguid, clique em device e troque para o nome da sua câmera. Este erro ocorre quando a opção Google camera Adapter 0 está marcado.
