Please make sure that your web cam is not been in use by any other messenger or its in use.

If the web cam is open or being used by any other messenger then it will not work on other platform.

Split cam is not showing video i connect to yahoo and i just get a black screen


make sure that you setting up your webcam on your yahoo messenger properly, this problems are not setup properly on YM.
Go to Preferences on your Yahoo Messenger, see it there that your webcam is currently default to use on the system, and if not, just to select your Creative Labs Live Cam.
Or maybe you didn't install yet your nice cam. You have to setup that before you use all your chat messenger program. Good luck!

Webcam Can't install to Yahoo Messenger


Try unplugging your webcam. Uninstalling the cam, then re-installing it. Once it says its installed, plug in your cam. Or, try a diffrent usb port, that could be shot.

Logitech QuickCam E3500 to use with Yahoo Messenger


  • Is there enough light in the room? Flip a switch to light up the room a bit more.
  • Is your camera functioning properly? Try your camera alone; separate from Yahoo! Messenger, using the manufacturer's software that came with the camera.
  • Yahoo! Messenger might have the wrong camera selected. Follow the steps below to change your camera source.
  1. Click "Messenger"
  2. Click "My Webcam.
  3. Click "Messenger" again.
  4. Select "Preferences."
  5. Click "Webcam."
  6. Click "Camera Source."
  7. Click the pull-down menu and select the camera you want to use.
  8. Click "OK."
If that doesn't work, your friend might have one of the same problems with the camera on his or her end. They should try the same steps to see if that helps.
Hopefully the info here will help get things running smoothly!

Web cam set-up


Once your webcam software is loaded and working, in most cases the software loaded will provide some kind of display function allowing you to know that the software is working, then load up YM and under the Messenger tab, you will find ' MY WEBCAM '. Select ' My webcam ' and you should start seeing your display while using YM, that is the same display that others will see to whom you give allowance to see your webcam. I.E. you have to personally give each person permission to see your webcam. Until you know more about YM from personally using it and experiencing it, that is all I should say, but I will add one more tidbit. YM 9.0 beta is what I use and I'm quite happy with it as I have better control of the stealth function with it did I had with YM 8.0. Consider that when installing YM
