The built-in Motion Eye Camera is designed to add video functionality to many instant Messaging or video editing Software applications (such as Windows Messenger or MovieMaker). However the configuration process and support for how to set-up these individual applications is provided by the Software manufacturer, not Sony. Please contact your Yahoo Messenger support team for assistance on how to configure their Software.

TIP: Simply turning on your Computer activates that camera, so no specific
action is required to start the video services. Please note that only one
application can access the video signal at a time. If the signal is already
in use by one application, it will not be able to be detected by a second

Follow this procedure to take still image pictures with the integrated Sony Motion Eye camera.
1. On the taskbar, click Start and then click My Computer.
2. In the My Computer window, double-click the Sony Visual Communications icon.
3. In the Sony Visual Communications window, under Camera Tasks, click Take new picture.

Follow this procedure to capture video with the integrated Sony Motion Eye camera.
1. On the taskbar, click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Movie Maker.
2. In the Windows Movie Maker window, on the left side under Capture Video, click Capture from video device.

    I cannot use the webcam for video calling



    There could be several reasons why you can't see one of the video stream windows during a video call. Check the following items to see if any of them apply to you: Webcam connection: If you have an externally connected webcam, check the connection. Tip: You can test your webcam, go to the help article, "Testing Your Webcam For Video Calling http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/videocall/ms10tavdcltestcam.html," for more information. Check that you have everything set up correctly for video calling by reviewing the help article, "Getting Ready to Make Your First Video Call."
    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/videocall/ms10tavdclstart.html
    Now, start a new video call to see if it's working better for you. If you still have the same issue, you can send our engineers your diagnostic log files for analysis. These log files can show us if Yahoo! Messenger is functioning properly. Yahoo! Messenger has an embedded reporting tool that makes this a simple procedure. Here's how to send diagnostic log files with the embedded tool: Click the Help menu and select Report a Problem to Yahoo!. This will activate diagnostic logging for Yahoo! Messenger on your computer. Start another video call with your contact. Once the problem occurs again, click the Help menu and select Report a Problem to Yahoo!. Select Video as the category and under "Problem," select the appropriate option. Type a short description of your problem in the field provided. Click Send. This submits your log files. This will send us your diagnostic log files and our engineers will be able to use them for analysis of your problem. Click the Help menu again and select Turn Off Diagnostic Logs. Click OK.

    Set up webcam for messenger


    Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

    http://www.testmycam.com/

    Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
    COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER
    Use Internet Explorer to visit this page to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control

    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html

    CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
    Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
    Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

    INTERNET CONNECTION
    Webcam connected
    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 > Apply > OK

    TESTING
    > Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

    SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
    With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
    Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

    PERMISSION OPTIONS
    > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

    IN USE
    When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
    There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
    Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

    I don't really know how to use it. It was a gift from my daughter after my hard drive crashed.


    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...

    4. Then after completing the Audio Setup, on left panel, go to down and click on Super Webcam and click on Start Super Webcam Mode Automatically.
    5. Then click APPLY and then OK.
    6. Next click on MESSENGER and then click on MY WEBCAM and you camera should BRODCSAST and you will see your picture.

    C. Windows Live Messenger:

    Click Messenger again, and this time select Preferences.
