When I try to use webcam on yahoo messenger, it shows me "a network error has occured to your server". When the other person tries to view my webcam, it shows me the same error but shows him "no webcam detected on the other person's system". Is this a problem with my webcam or the messnger version?

This really isn't enough information for me to determine a issue. Your trying to connect yahoo messenger and use the internet explorer to browse the internet? The webcame may be a software issue, did it come with disks? If so reload everything.
The user has not described the operating system in use.
However this problem generally occurs due to incompartible hardware. in this case it is ever stated. ie. Network interface Device. I suggest you disconnect the Network devices including cables, then try to reboot.
If not descibe how far the booting process gets and type of network hardware connected and operating system to your system
Hello have you check the cam with another system or check the connection well and make sure the cam is on then reconnect it to the power source and make sure you click on the view webcam to view others persons webcam

If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam: There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately. Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software. The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source: 1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam." 2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences." 3. Click the "Webcam" category. 4. Click the "Camera Source" button. 5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera. 6. Click the "OK" button. If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam: Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again. If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.
