gyach webcam troubleshooting

I recently installed the binary tar.bz2 package of Gyach Enhanced and got most of the features to work..havent tested voice though. I am running a FC3 machine on a Dell laptop. I managed to get my Logitech Camera to work and Gyach detects it fine. When i run the the Gyach-Webcam broadcast from the "start my webcam" option in the 'Actions' button I can see that the webcam is capturing images, but on testing this with another Windows XP user and I can recieve his/her webcam perfectly well with no complications....but my webcam image appears as a black screen to them. Furthermore its just not a black screen , there is a thin line above the black screen which shows only part of my webcam image to the other user. In other words, it looks like the images are reaching the other end but not the whole image..only a fraction of it. This is the same for a linux user as well.

Anyone know how to get around this ?
Thanks in advance
