    Microsoft Livecam hd 3000 issues no video

    Hi, I recently bought a Microsoft Live webcam hd 3000 and have tried to use it for video chatting but it doesn't load an image. When I have tried using it with various webcam software like google hangouts, skype, and several chrome webcam webapps, the resultant image from the camera would always be black or a loading circle. The microphone has worked in all of these programmes however. For the camera windows 8 app, the webcam works fine. I double checked device manager to make sure the camera is installed properly. i'm running windows 8.1

    Thanks in advance.
