Hello .... again
I have an issue that while seemingly not great, it is major for me as radio Dj and one who creates tutorials with a web cam.
I use Adobe Flash Media Encoder or i can use Procaster to stream to our server live while i do my shows. I have done this for a few years without any issues outside of the odd Audio glitch.
Recently, when i loaded FME to go live, it stated my profile had failed and it was loading default profile. This happens if i have no cam plugged in (I have forgot to do that at times so i know this message) However it WAS plugged in. I tried a few things and no luck? "Is the cam broken"? i asked myself. It is listed in Adobe but not loading so i try Procaster and that says "No Cam". I hooked the cam to my lap Top and it works fine. Thinking it may have some issue i have bought a new cam, it installed drivers fine and now i am getting the same message. I would re install adobe only the cam is not working with Pro caster and i can also go live from within my Livestream account but there i get a message saying the cam is being used by another application (That may not be so) that could be a false report. I does however ask me to allow or deny as if it sees it but after i click allow, i get the above message. This is strange and should NOT be happening.
Something is corrupt somewhere in the system. Not sure if there is a link but i un installed Avast and bought MacAffee the day before. I have turned it off, even the firewall and tried.
I am sure this one will go right over your heads as it has mine I can no longer perform live or do other work without it.
Any ideas for a clean up or where i could start looking in the system in relation to the function of my cam? Or any other help would be appreciated
Thank you in advance..
Just editing an update. I installed the disc that come with the cam, and even that software is not seeing the Web Cam, I smell malware .
