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

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

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

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

How do i turn mycamera into a webcam


Some cameras such as the Sony Cybershot line are pre-installed with a software that allows you to turn the camera into a webcam. Depending on which camera model it may be, you can either have this option or not. Usually with cameras that have the software, it should be shown somewhere in the manual. If not, you can use a third-party software like Sarmsoft Webcam.
If your camera does this, then follow these steps:
  1. Check if the camera can be used as a webcam, if your camera doesn't come with the software, use the third party one.
  2. Plug the digital camera's power adapter into your camera. (Sometimes you may need to plug it into an A/C outlet for it to work) This makes sure that your camera doesn't die during broadcasting.
  3. Connect a video cable into your camera's "video out" port. Your camera most likely came with a cable made to connect to a video source. Plug the other into your video card "in" port.
  4. Set up your camera as close to the monitor as you can, it will look and shoot like a webcam in that position.
  5. If you camera doesn't have a built-in mic, then you may need to purchase one. However, most digital cameras capable of being a webcam already have a mic built in.
Enjoy! and Good luck.

I receive a message, "Webcam is not connected."


This is happening because your web cam is not getting properly disconnected after you finish call or you finish self testing.

Possible your skype is set on automatically login when system starts, web cam will not work on 2 different platform at a time.

I have an advent built in cam.....how to change its settings?????


well in vista you cant use the camera without opening something like windows movie maker or other third party software,but in xp ou can go to "my computer" and select the cam from the list, and not too many webcams have brightness adjustments unless they utilize a third party software....the lighting i based on what you have in the room. hope this helps at least a little :)

Unable to hear other party. Can see myself, and others, no sound


Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "CALLIN & DEVICES."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.
Then go to "Test Audio"
In Blue "Open the call setup Assistant"
When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.
Hope this helps. Bud

My cam is crashing in yahoo


If you have already, i apologise, but you may need to set up yhe camera in messenger, although you should really upgrade to Windows Live as it's a lot better, as there are settings the programme needs to configure first.
