    All depends on your connection & the frames per second and your cam uses, my
    cam says 15 fps but I'm using a mobile hsdpa broadband connection so the
    picture breaks up every now and then and jerks, hope that helps

    Re: How many Frames Per Second in WLM?

    Well, I was just wondering if anyone knew the limit of the frames per second
    in the windows live messenger software....is it 15 F.P.S. maximum, 30 F.P.S.?
    My internet connection speed isn't the problem, as I have verizon FIOS
    service at 15 mbps download and 5 mbps upload speed. I have a logitech
    quickcam communicate stx model webcam which I think is capable of 30 F.P.S.,
    but the video is still slightly choppy and not smooth so I don't think I'm
    getting that and was wondering if the WLM software was limiting it at 15
    F.P.S..

    Greetings,

    That won't be the frame rate then (which I'm not even sure about at the moment, as the
    technical specifications for the latest versions have never been released), it's more likely
    you've just not made a direct connection between yourself and your contact.

    If you really want to test the camera and Messenger directly, assuming you have more than one
    PC on the network, just log into the other one and connect to the client on that machine.

    I am connected to the internet through a router, and this is what my
    connection says in WLM:

    You are directly connected to .NET Messenger Service.

    You are connected to the Internet through wired network connection.

    You are connected to the Internet through a UPnP port restricted NAT. (User)

    Hi,

    You should be good to go then, although it still is possible that a software firewall on your
    end is blocking the video connection.

    Additionally, it still could be your contacts' problem if they have a restrictive firewall or
    networking situation as well.

    Re: How many Frames Per Second in WLM?

    It could be the specs on my computer causing the video to not be so smooth
    also..running vista business 32-bit on a intel pentium 4 @ 3 GHz
    w/hyper-threading, 2GB of DDR 400 ram and an AGP nvidia 7600GS graphics card.
    McAfee anti-virus and windows defender running in background too. I imagine
    an up to date dual core or quad core, DDR2 memory, and a pci-e graphics card
    would yield better video quality?

    Hi,

    Although I admit Messenger video can be demanding, assuming you're not using anything else
    that's too demanding on the CPU, that should be fine.

    For instance, webcam (no audio) on my P4 1.8Ghz also running Vista and 5700LE is smooth.
