Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below.
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

I want to open two accounts of yahoo messenger at the same time..i need two ym windows to log in..how can i have multiple window of yahoo messenger if my OS is windows 7?


I'm not sure if Yahoo messenger has the specific ability to log in to two accounts simultaniously. If you don't mind using another client to log into your Yahoo account, there are a lot of third party messaging clients (Trillian, Pidgin, Spark, Meebo, etc) that will let you log into multiple accounts at once. These will also let you sign into other protocols such as AOL IM, MSN messenger, ICQ, IRC, Yahoo IM, and several others.
If you're open to trying a new client, I'd recommend trying Pidgin: http://www.pidgin.im/download/
Its probably one of the easier clients to learn to use.
If installing new software is an issue, use one instance of Yahoo Messenger and a web client like https://imo.im/
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

I can't change my display image in yahoo messenger, if you are going to check it through detector/scanner, the display image shown was the old one iv used. but during chat, its totally black screen for...


To change your display image your computer needs to communicate with the Yahoo! servers. Sometimes this takes a longer time than usual. Make sure the source file you are using is not too big and you select it from the images list multiple times before pressing ok. Be patient, it's just temporary.

When you type your user id and password, uncheck the third option named " Sign is as invisible to everybody " and if it unchecked, log in to messenger. After login, click to you id next to your display image and choose option " Available ". You problem will be solved.

My display picture will not change in messenger box


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
