See section B. Yahoo in info below.

Normal 0 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:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. 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.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I Have a Logitech Quickcam and it works... but it won't on yahoo


If the camera is working on other programs it should work on Yahoo Messenger.

The way to check is to ( in Messenger ) open "Messenger".
My Webcam.
You should see your picture on the camera there.
If you have the picture there then goto "Preferences" , "Webcam".

In there you will see 3 settings
"Always Ask my permission"
"Allow everyone to view my webcam"
"Always allow the following people to view my webcam"

Choose one of the settings, I use always allow the following people to view my webcam.

You can also tick the chatroom box.

The EZonic Web Camera people should not be manufacturing or selling their Web Camera's if they won't provide the Web Camera drivers free. Instead people who have purchased the EZonic Web Camera's have to pay for them.
My suggestion to those who have purchased an Ezonic Web Camera is to pitch it and get it from Microsoft
and/or Logitech who provide support and driver availablity. That goes for Sony and a nmber of other
manufactures.

Copy one of the sites below and paste it into your ADDRESS BAR and hit ENTER to check out how easy it is to get the drivers you need to support the Windows operating system (ie. XP, Vista, & Windows 7).

Microdoft Site:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICEbd

Logitech Site:

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

My recommendation: Why pay for the drivers, you'd be money ahead to purchase one of these cameras.

Hope this is of some help and is not only my opinion but plenty of other Technicians. Bud

Hi,

If you are able to see them & the you are able to see yourself using your webcam then is nothing wrong on your side.

Just ask your frind to check his settings so that he can see you.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
