How many Frames Per Second in WLM?

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

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.

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.
