Step 1

Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already (see Resources below).

Step2

Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting.

Step3

Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend.

Step4

Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active.

Step5

Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams.

Step6

Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires.

Step7

Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed.

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.

Regards
Henry
