Default Webcam Lag

When ever I use my webcam it lags foor some reason. I have a 256k cable connection, the webcam is usb. Its strange cause sometimes itll lag after a while, sometimes never, sometimes all conversation long. Any ideas ?

Nope, I stop anything im doing. At first I did then I tought "Downloading at 25kbs, webcam on" something didnt add up if u know what i mean. So, yeah, thats not it. But tanks anyway. If I get a T1 and still have this problem Ill grab the webcam by the cord and smash it against the wall. But I wont be getting a T1 for a while. Id rather get 5mb Cable, thats real nice. But, my current isp doesnt offer 5mb, so Im stuck on 256 for a while, a long long while.

I dont think you will need to do that

Maybe the webcam has a problem....you could try newer drivers or something like that

I'm a very lazy person myself

You dont have to have a really great camera...as long as it works and you have the drivers for it

all web cams will lag, its only the really expensive ones that are slightly better because they have a higher frame rate.
