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)

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

I can not enter in the chat room. every time i click to join any caht room a message is displayed saying error code 0. and then nothing happenes and i cant eneter in the chat room


Seems your account was reported for spam or abuse in chat room and in result your ID is banned for chatrooms at present. try creating profile on same account and join room with same profile.

Using yahoo messenger 10 but cant able to use the webcam


If you initiate Video Call with someone on Yahoo messenger 10, the other person too has to be using Yahoo messenger 10.

If you wish to let the other chat person to see your webcam, ask the chat person to click on Tools use VIEW MY WEBCAM and you will get notification msg to approve it.

I cant get in chatroom, i doesnt create room list


Hi,

To make a chat room:-
Click on Action, scroll down to Invite a Conference.. and chose any of your friends to chat..

In general:

Yahoo! chat has been problematic for most everyone who tries to enter rooms over the last year .
Billions of Yahoo! website users from all over the world who love to chat,try to enter into the chat room as it's free,so it's server is always busy and not supposed to get you in immediately you ask for it, wait,have patience and you'll have your request accepted.

You might need to first check some settings on your PC.
In your Messenger window:
1. Click on Messenger.
2. Click on Preferances.
3. Click on General.
4. Check box says: "Open web links in new browser window."
5. Check box that says: "Automatically sign me in when I click on a Yahoo link in Messenger."
6,.) Click on Apply.
7.) Click on OK.

If that does not work, you might also need to check these settings:
1.) On your Internet Exploer toolbar, click on tools.
2.) Click on Internet Options.
3.) Click tab that says Programs.
4.) Near the bottom Where it says Default Web Browser, make sure Internet Explorer IS the default web browser.
5.) Click on Apply.
6.) Click on OK.

When the chat room loads wait about 3-5 minutes before clicking "Enter" , that works well for me . Otherwise just keep trying over and over and over usually takes alot of tries . Most likely your giving up too easily . Once you get into the room add it to your favorite rooms , then instead of having to wait for the room list to come up use "Join chat room" >> "Favorites" . Sometimes that works faster .

Also if you are not 18 it wont let you in...Find out in here

Hope this helped
