Yeah I had same problem with mine, when someone tries viewing it, all they got was a black screen too. Downloading an "Older Version Of Yahoo Messenger" wlll not solve the problem, as being "Older" it would be even more less likely that it would have supported you Webcam back then, let alone now.
Unfortunately, just one of those things. You can either Buy a New Cam that comes with Vista Support, Backup your whole system & format the hard drive & install Windows XP. Or you can just sit back and hope that Support will be added for your Webcam in the near future.
(Although 2 yrs later and I still can't see My OLD Webcam listed as compatible with Vista, so may have a long wait).

When i am on my webcam on acer crystal web cam it wont let me do anything to camera control. How do i fix that?


Do you mean things like 'gamma' 'exposure' etc.?

If so, you must close all chat sessions and work on it on it's own, you cant change these things whilst it is in use.

I want to vid chat with my cousin but it wont let me because it says "camera is busy" or "in use" and it isnt all programs are closed i have an acer crystal webcam.


At the time of chatting close all the programs, check the web cam settings to show the camera is "ON" or check the user settings. It is the problem with setting itself check throughly.

Programa para webcam


Please be more sprecific for what do you need. If you want just to capture video with a webcam (to record yourself) there is some software called AMCAP installed (will have to check in the folder where webcam is installed).
For web chat/video chat almost every messenger supports web cam
For a streaming video (your webcam on the net) should search yourself for a related PHP/ASP script or software
