Inverted picture on yahoo messenger

When i turn on my web cam at yahoo messenger, gives an inverted output i have exactly the same problem on my laptop, i have a built in bison nb pro webcam, when i open it in yahoo messenger my image that comes out of it is inverted-upside down, no tabs for reversing it, that only happens when im in yahoo messenger, when just using my laptop the image is normal but the moment i use it in yahoo messenger its inverted. my os is vista home premium.

    theres no controls like vertical and mirror flip in yahoo messengers webcam settings whatsoever, can it be cause by incompatibility of my os with ym? i have an associate with the same lap top (with built in webcam) but his os is vista home (but not premium) and his web cam's functioning alright. by the way may ym9 is the "final" version. ive also tried ym8 but same result

Hi,

sounds like you have told messenger to invert the video source, im not familiar with yahoo messenger but i suggest you go through the menus looking for web cam settings.

In MS Live messenger its off of the tools menu, web cam settings, advanced
Under camera controls there are Vertical and Mirror flip options.

Hope this helps

Regards

Nick

I can't find the software for webcam


If you are using Windows XP you can use the Samsung Play Camera program or any Instant Messenger application such as Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger.

Another free web cam utility is YawCam which you can also use for what you want.

How to use the acer crystal web cam on extensa 5620


You can use your web cam on many different applications. To test it out and take some pictures you can go to "My Computer" and then find something like camera, web cam, etc. You can also use in Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AIM, etc. Hope you have fun.

Good luck,

I can't chat with my web cam with other ACER netbook users. I would like to chat with my friends who have ACER netbooks but i cant seem to figure out how. I own a ACER laptop netbook with a built in web...


Do you use yahoo messenger to chat? If your are using yahoo messenger, while chatting, look be-nit the chat box, you would see a web cam symbol, click it and you will see a warning box pop out. Click OK and your web cam will automatically be activated.

You would have to wait a little while for the web cam to show, because it has to load. Loading time depends solely on your computer and internet connection speed.

Best wishes.

I do not now how to turn on web cam


usually laptops have software that they can use to operate their webcam to capture video and pictures, if you use that software it turns on your cam, if you use yahoo messenger you can go to messenger>my webcam and it activates your webcam

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

I can receive a web cam picture from other people but can't send


Hi, My Name is Henry. I am one of the technicians here.

The only solution to this problem is to make your webcam live for others to see you. If that is not done then you will be seeing only yourself.

Another problem is your internet speed. If your speed is very slow then you may see people but people may not be able to see you.

if these dont work, try reinstalling your yahoo messenger.

i hope this helps.

Please do not forget to rate my solutions to you.

Inverted picture on yahoo messenger


it's most likely upside down, or the settings are mirror imaged

Yahoo! Messenger > Yahoo! Messenger Help > Messenger 8 > Webcam How do I correct an upside-down image? That’s no fun. The image in your Webcam Uploader window might be inverted because of your camera setting.

To change the setting:

Click Messenger and select "My Webcam."

In the window that opens, click the "File" menu,

select "Preferences," and choose "Webcam".
Click the "Camera Settings" button.

There is usually a checkbox for "Invert Image" or "Mirror Vertical."

Un-check this box if one exists.

If you can't find this checkbox, try searching the other tabs.

Mine is an ongoing issue, for almost 6 weeks now. I cannot access my Pinterest account. I get no results when I sign on to Pinterest, or when I push the Pinterest button. The first sign of trouble was when I got a message that something had run out or stopped and at that point I was told to paste something to my browser. This was Greek to me and thus began my many desperate pleas for help. At 70 years old, I am unable to follow any instructions. The second thing I was told was to deactivate my account and then reinactivate it. I then read that to deactivate would lose all my boards and pins, so then I was and still am, afraid to do anything! I adore Pinterest. I am a shut in, physically challenged and Pinterest adds so much joy to my daily life. My last email was from a woman, at Corp., and she listed several suggestions...however, I did not understand them, plus, if I exited the email to do what she instructed, I had to hope I could still have the email to go back to, and I immediately did the unthinkable...I lost the email entirely. I am so fed up with myself at this point, I had a computer repair man come to the house to work on my iPad and my laptop, but he said he knew nothing about Pinterest and could not help me at all. I have contacted you for help so many times on this, it is embarrassing and I am sure I have made a nuisance of myself. The initial email, notifying me that something was wrong with my account, is when all the trouble began. I have enjoyed Pinterest for several years, and have no idea what the initial email was talking about. That is when I was told to deactivate and then deactivate my account, and also told to paste something to my browser. It sounds so simple, but I am at a total loss. Again, I am terrified of losing my boards and 57,000.00 pins. Can someone at Corp. try again to help me? Also, is there any chance that they could call me and instruct me over the phone? I am desperate to save my boards/pins.Could someone please try one more time to help me? Carol Thompson Hollyhockheaven 623 910 9386
