If you can use the webcam on another application, let's say for example aol/msn/skype, then it'll have to be Yahoo.

Messenger 10. Newly download. XP operating system. When I try to view any cams I always get the message that the cam is Not Connected?


This problem occurs especially because you opened another program that uses your webcam. You should close any other program that might be using your webcam because a simple webcam can only interact with one program. If it doesn't work, try reinstalling it / then messenger with another version.

If you are satisfied, please rate or/and leave a testimonial. Thanks!

Webcam not Connected ( to your Messenger ) can usually be overcome by setting your Messenger Internet Connection

MESSENGER INTERNET CONNECTION

Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'No proxies' or 'Connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes, If not change them > Apply > OK
