program but not on msn. I think it has something to do with my NATS?

Have experienced a simular problem but with windows
messenger, have just upgraded to the latest version and
that solved it ok. If there is a more recent version than
6.2 suggest you upgrade as that will have the protocols
in it.

Greetings Angee,

Actually a NAT shouldn't affect the webcam functionality within MSN Messenger 6.x, because
the webcam can make use of a relay server which will relay your webcam. If you go to the
Tools menu, then Web Camera Settings, does your camera properly appear and work there?

If this is going through a rounter you will need to enable
UPNP on both the router and windows.
Good luck!

Hi,

Actually, as I described, UPnP is not required for the Webcam as it can make use of a relay
server.
