Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up tobroadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see andtalk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger setit up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

You can use the standard alone messanger by going to www.aim.com and download the software. Also, you can use instant messaging if you sign into your mail through the website mail.aol.com From there, look for the yellow running man icon on the right. You can then click on that and sign in AIM (it stands for Aol Instant Messaging).

What is live messanger?


It is an instant messaging chat program like AOL instant messenger, or Yahoo messenger, or ICQ. It can safely be turned off or deleted completely. I actually think that Yahoo messenger is a better program and can chat with many more different programs.

    Logitech Quickcam Chat - No audio


    Try testing it, last time I checked skype has a test section, its hard to find, but its there. You just talk into the mic and skype records it. Then play back.

    It is possible the mic isn't working.

    Before you consider taking it back, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.
