Go into Yahoo Messenger and choose Messenger from the top menu. Open My Webcam. Within the webcam screen menu choose File and then Preferences. Now click on Camera Source. Select the right camera and click Ok.

You have to go into the "macromedia flash" settings and "allow" the webam to be used by yahoo messenger, whilst in yahoo messenger itself.
If that doesn't work have a look at the webcams actual software

hope this helps

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!

How do i get to the webcam on my acer touch z29og computer


Hi,

Acer Touch Z29OG do not have a dedicated Webcam Software, so inorder to use the webcam you have use a 3rd party software like MSN or Yahoo Messenger. You have also use any software that uses webcam to record.

Thanks and regards,

I have just purchased a Acer Aspire laptop model 5732Z and I can't work out how to switch on the webcam! Any help gratefully received.


When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default app will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.
One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messager or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat.. If this doesnt work you may not have the right drivers. Go to the acer website or a 3rd party driver site like www.driveragent.com and update the drivers! Also if running on batt it may be disabled to save power.. right click on my computer click properties and device manager and make sure it is on the list of hardware, or newer verisons of windows control panel > system > Hardware

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Webcam working ok with yahoo test but when i go to messanger then viue webcam it comes up not connected i have done some thing wrong can you help please


If you are trying to run both at the same time, you cannot do that for some reason. The connection of your webcam to one blocks the connection with the other.
If you are just trying to run it on messenger, which i am assuming is msn or live messenger, you have to run the connection set up for the messenger itself. I believe that it can be found in the settings menu.
