I just got an HP Deluxe webcam, and am running Windows XP. Usually, when I look at the image through the computer or through the HP software, it looks perfectly fine.
However, when I am doing a video chat in AIM, the image appears to flicker between light and dark. The strange thing is, if I move closer to the camera, then it stops flickering. What's going on??

Do go through the below link and report the problem if needed:
AIM - Video IM

BTW, are you facing the same problem while video chatting through MSN or Yahoo messenger?
