We connect the webcam and we can take pictures but we cant connect it to yahoo when we view my webcam all i see is black plssssssssss help me


Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

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 Broadcast > 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

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and 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'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More 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.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Sometimes you may have to broadcast the 'small image' option from the 'Webcam' menu on the top of your image frames. This happens when one of you is down on resources -its like sending a large photo by email - its quicker if you cut the size down
you can zoom up to 200% from the same menu when the webcam picture comes through

Use the 'Always on top' option from the 'webcam' menu - or your image will disappear under the message window when you type a message

I have Logitech notebook pro webcam, when on skype my picture shows abut nd the other person can hear me just fine but I cannot receive video from the other party but can hear them also.. Any...


Dear friend, if other side does not have a cam or does not put the cam on mode for you then your not able to view them. Some time other side camera window will open in your Skype but you can't see the image. May be you seen black screen or green. It will happens for the few reason. 1. Slow internet connection, 2. wireless net connection, 3. if the other side camera open for other messenger , for exam Yahoo/msn & at the same time she/he sending you a cam viewing invitation in Skype , that time you will see those screens. 4. After log in go in Privacy then Calls & then open video settings. Now you set the Automatically receive video from mode & try after that to use.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

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.

Crystal eye web cam


in my computer, you should have the camera there, if installed correctly, there you can just view the picture and take pictures(open the camera), it won't be shown to other people there.

you can use it on a program like msn messenger to view other peoples webcameras and send picture from yours.
