Can't use Canon Elura as MSN or Windows Messenger webcam

    Hello all -

    I have DSL with a Dlink DI704 router. I can currently use my 'cheapo'
    web cam to have video and voice conversations with other Messenger
    users. This almost always works perfectly.

    However, I just bought a Canon Elura 60 and would like to be able to
    use that as a webcam. The device connects fine to the computer and I
    can copy video back and forth and such. [I have also installed canons
    DV Messenger, but I think that is more hassle than I need.]

    When I go to the audo/video tuning wizard in either Messenger program,
    I see my Elura video picture and all seems well. But I can't seem to
    broadcast this video picture - it's just a black screen where the
    video should be.

    Any thoughts on what would cause my DV cam to seem to connect
    correctly, but not actually broadcast a picture using either MSN or
    Windows Messenger? Again, I can see the picture in the tuning wizard,
    but nothing once I get into a conversation and attempt to 'start
    camera' or 'send webcam'.

    thanks.

    Matthew
