    Try lowering your security settings to medium. Can't have the cam on except only in the one application you want to use it, such as only yahoo IM or only in msn. What is your operating system. Make sure EVERYTHING is updated, drivers, programs such as Adobe Flash Player, you should get prompts for them but not all ways. I never could get a cam to work in AOL IM when it would work in other IM services so some things may not be compatible, but it should work at least in one. Some services may require you have your pop up blocker adjusted to allow pop ups from that site i.e., yahoo

Not sure if this has been resolved or not. I had forgot to put the information at the end of this page in the Clarification Request. Plus there are some other things to try which I will mention here. Just curious as to what the OS is and how long the cam had been installed and if it works when you are not in an IM program. Make sure that you have the cam software/drivers updated, there may be a box for you to check mark in the properties section that will ask if you want to receive automatic updates, or you can search the web for your brand and model of cam, as well as Microsoft if you are running windows or the other if you are running another.Don't turn the cam on prior to signing into the IM and not untill you click the icon to start video cam, it should turn on automatically,

Also check your device manager to make sure the computer is recognizing the cam/device and that it is enabled. To do this in windows: left click/select > Start > then right click MY COMPUTER for the drop down menu > left click/select PROPERTIES >left click/select HARDWARE > left click/select DEVICE MANAGER > in the menu look for IMAGING DEVICES > left click/select the box next to it then > right click your device > left click/select PROPERTIES from the drop menu, then click/select general tab and see to make sure the device is enabled

Ym and webcam activation in ubuntu


Ubuntu doesn't play well with yahoo for some reason. The best IM client would be the one that comes with ubuntu. Click the envelope and then chat now. From there you can put in your accounts to include Facebook, MSN, YIM and quite a few others. The webcam problem will be the drivers That will require a bit more information (computer make and model things like that).
Thanks!

In im i cant invite to see my cam why


Probably because you are in a different program to your contact
Cross chatting does not support webcams
If you are in Yahoo Messenger for example and your contact is in Yahoo Mail or Yahoo webmessenger or MSN the webcam feature is not available the option may be greyed out or missing.
You both have to be in Yahoo Messenger or MSN

YM CAMERA'S SCREEN IS BLACK!


You need to check your video settings in Yahoo Messenger. If you look at the video settings in MSN you should see your webcam listed as the active device. Now check in YM, is the camera listed? If not can you select it from a drop-down?

First of all, have you verified you are using latest version of MSN messenger. If so and the problem still exists, give one of the other instant messengers a try, say like YM or AIM or any number of others.
What exactly do you mean by ' seems to work '?? Can you see yourself in the cam using whatever software other then MSN that you may have on your computer.
