Re: My web cam connecting to programs
See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below.
disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or
Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect
the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
to use it on the Web do this. Web Camera’s have to be
setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera
on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for
the Audio and Video to function properly. A. Skype Setup:

and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your
friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you. B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger
) set it up as follows:
Messenger at the top left and click on it.
go down to Preferences and click on it.
Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to
the computer Audio Card.
go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on
“Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left
C. Windows Live Messenger:
you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square
on top left next to the red X.
on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show
Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
“TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

Well, it's very easy for you to use a web camera. First you have to
decide how do you want to use it.. means you can use it for video
chatting through Paltalk, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Skype etc.
For video chat you will need to install it in your PC.
To install first connect the web cam with PC. Insert the installation
CD in CD/DVD-ROM, run Setup.exe and install it. Once setup is
successfully completed you may need to restart the PC.
Now open and sign in your chat client (MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger,
Gtalk messenger, AOL etc.) For example: If you want to start share your
web cam in Yahoo messenger, just Login with your ID and password....click on Messenger choose option My Webcam.One warning message will appear...click OK....your webcam will start....Now if you want to invite someone to view your webcam, simply click on his/her ID and open IM window....click on Actions, choose More Actions from down of the list....and click on Invite to view my webcam....if he/she accepts your invitation...he/she will able to see you....again if you want to see someone who having Webcam....open the IM window by clicking his/her ID.... follow option Actions > More Actions and click on View webcam....yahoo will send the request to him/her...if he/she accept your request....you will able to see him/her....
For MSN messenger....sign in to your messenger and click on Actions and from list choose option Video and click on Show my webcam to view your webcam to others from your contact list.....or click on Start a video call to start video chat.....
To see others webcam click on View a contact's webcam....if the person accept your webcam....you will able to see his/her webcam....
Same to other chat client too...just little different in options....
I think you can get it easily...

There are many inconsistencies between Yahoo! IM and Windows Live. Basically, you can connect to members of each, but the status may not update correctly and other features like web page sharing may not work. My recommendation is if most of your friends are on Yahoo! IM, then switch to Yahoo! IM. Lastest is version 9. Version 10 is in beta.
YOU NEED TO SET CAM UP
IF DOES'NT HELP THEN UNINSTALL YAHOO AND RESTART AND REINSTALL AND GO THROUGH SETUP AGAIN
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it. Next go down to Preferences and click on it. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card. Next go to the Test Audio section and in blue writing click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window. LET ME KNOW IF SOLVED AND PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE THANX
