How do i connect my web cam to my yahoo messinger


I am going to assume that you already have installed your webcam and can use it within windows with the software it came with.

I am also going to assume you are using yahoo messenger 10.

To activate your webcam in Yahoo! Messenger 10 in the top menu click Messenger, then from there select My WebCam.

Read the warning that should pop up, click OK and then select your speed preference and click OK.
Another box should come up showing your webcam view. It will monitor how many users are watching yor webcam.

Brand new HP computer with Integrated Webcam Not working


Do you have the USB cable connection from the monitor hooked up to your computer? If so, are your USB ports configured properly?
Your computer should alert you with an audible tone indication whenever you connect or disconnect the webcam USB cable. If it is not doing this, The webcam itself may be defective.

Please check your webcam from other applications. if it works properly then re-install yahoo messenger and also install Dot Net Framework 3.5, which you can get from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=333325fd-ae52-4e35-b531-508d977d32a6&displaylang=en

Acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger


Make sure all of your drivers are updated for the webcam and the sound card. To check the drivers go to the manufacturer's websites for each of these products. Also, make sure your yahoo messenger is updated and make sure that the Windows Live Essentials is updated to latest version. If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.

When I try to view my friend's webcam it won't work.


Hi there

Let me give you the easy way out...try the other way round! that is INVITE HER to view your webcam and see what happens. Most probably it will work fine. I hope this was immediate enough! If still it doesn't work and it's some weird problem associated with her YM then get hold of MSN messenger and install it both of you it will work fine. One more thing check out the webcam options by clicking the webcam in yahoo messenger to see if there are some permission related options there.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
