Google+ Hangout - Video works fine in Preview, but Freezes 5 secs after starting the hangout. xCasino 6/29/12 10:10 AM
I'm having an issue with Google Hangout where after about 5 secs of joining the hangout my webcam picture freezes. When I'm in the preview before going into the hangout everything works fine.  Skype works fine with the camera. Is there anything I can try that may remedy this?

Things I've tried:
Reinstall Webcam driver
Reinstall Webcam software
Reinstall GoogleTalk Plugin
Enable Video Chat Enhancements in Google
Restart the computer

Now one thing I haven't tried (I may have and not noticed) is doing a google hangout without Skype running. Can this cause an issue?  Any help would be great!

I think Skype is interfering. Temporarily disable Skype toolbar and text.

Skype has nothing to do with it, beacuse it's not installed on my notebook but I have the same problem

meinik, after 5 seconds of joining a Hangout, picture freezes?

Go to your hangout settings page

and check of webcam works.

What browser are you using?  Does change browser fix the problem?
