My friend just got a webcam tonight and I can't view it in Safari or IE, but on my roommates XP machine I can view it fine.
Does anyone know why this is happening or how i can solve it.

I have a Logitech webcam (USB cos I don't have FW). I had to download drivers from Sourceforge, which cost, I think, $15.
Well worth it, however - the webcam has been flawless since I got them.
This was because Logitech didn't support the cam I got (I'm away from home and can't quite remember which it is - Pro something....) for OS X, which kinda sucked.
If you have already got drivers, sorry for such a basic suggestion :-)

I didn't think I would need the drivers because I don't actually have the webcam, it's on a friends computer at Umass Amherst. I have the link to webcam page, but it just won't load. With Safari it tries until the program freezes and with IE it just goes to a page explaining things for less than 1 second and back to the home page or where ever I was before.

Maybe we need some information as to how the webcam is being streamed. Is it using Quicktime? or Real? or WiMP?

I don't actually know how it's being streamed. Sorry

Hmm, then I'm not sure either. But it should be relatively simple to have your friend invite you to view using, say, Yahoo IM.
It's a free install for both!
Works reasonably well, too.
