Yahoo chat webcams

I've downloaded yahoo messenger 9, but I can't view webcams in the chatrooms. I can view my friends' webcams with no problem, though. I'm using Norton AV's firewall.

How can i verify my yahoo messenger account in order to enter the chat room


ou need to undergo a verification process first to get into yahoo chatrooms.

This has been setup by Yahoo to prevent automated bots and spammers to give us all REAL people enjoyment in chating.

When you join a chatroom a chatroom window will open with the following message --

( To help prevent spam and bots from disrupting your Yahoo! chat experience, please click here to verify your account (this link will open a new web browser window).

Underneath this message is the Captcha. (blue link) that you need to click ONCE.

When a new web browser opens, the following message appears -

"To join the chatroom please complete the following verification." and "Please enter the character shown above"

Type in the characters in the box and then click submit.

After a few seconds the chatroom window will now open

How to talk to my friends using the webcam?


Make sure you're using the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. Secondly, you'll see a clickable option named "Start My Webcam." After that, it will begin loading your webcam. Next, you'll see a little camera icon that appears in the chat window when you're talking with your friend(s). Click on the contact from your contact list, then click "Invite to View My Webcam." This will open a new IM window with your webcam live. Be sure to click "View Webcam" link while talking to others in the IM so you can see their webcams!

*Tip: You can use the "Super Webcam" mode to receive high quality video and imagery feed in your webcam chat!


Hope this helps!

I cannot view my friend, he has a web cam I do not, but I can't figure out how to do it. Do I need to download the new yaho, I am trying to view him through windows live, h has a yahoo addy also


There are many inconsistencies between Yahoo! IM and Windows Live. Basically, you can connect to members of each, but the status may not update correctly and other features like web page sharing may not work. My recommendation is if most of your friends are on Yahoo! IM, then switch to Yahoo! IM. Lastest is version 9. Version 10 is in beta.

Cant view webcams in chat rooms


some times you 1st need an invite to view persons cam.

Try this method;
I discovered that I can view chat room webcams by clicking on the name and selecting Send an Instant Message first, then on the IM box select View Webcam under Actions. (It just doesn't work when I click on their name in the chat room list and select View Webcam from there--unless their webcam says Open Webcam)
