Why is my webcam not working for MSN?

I have a Microsoft Lifecam which used to work brilliantly for MSN, until recently. I haven't actually done anything to the settings, to my knowledge, but my problem is with only MSN. I can see myself in my webcam when i open up the lifecam programme (allows you to take videos and photos). But when I try to use it on MSN, I can see it but the person to whom I am talking doesn't recieve a webcam invitation. When I try to make a video call, it works fine bar the fact that they see a picture of a webcam with a red cross on it. I can see myself but they can't.

How should I make a webcam as a door camera and use it

I have a TV of aiwa model A1419 from past 25 yrs at home which I have not been using it since past 1-2 years and have not even started it because I bought a plasma TV 2 yrs back but my old TV even works fine till date if cable is plugged in. Now since I have this TV lying around and I also got a Lifecam Show & Lifecam HD 5000 webcams lying around I want to make a better use of it. So I would like to know how can I make them work as a security camera's outside my house door and watch anyone who comes at my door on the TV itself. The distance between my house door and the TV would be of at least 5-6 meters.

How do I surf the web using a webcam with QR Codes?

I want to build a setup that uses a Microsoft Lifecam to scan paper cut outs with QR Codes printed on them. The QR Codes have URL's for websites. I want to be able to hold them up to the camera and have the computer bring me to that URL. Please help in anyway you can! Thank You!
