Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam

1 Answer

I have my yahoo messenger finally working after losing it. I can now see my text, but before that my webcam was working. So I thought Great! I got both up and running, but I was wrong. My webcam says the size is not right and will now work now. It was working fine before, so I know it works, but just not when I got yahoo messenger working. Please help! I've been at this for hours, trying to see my son in Iraq and talk with him. It is so frustrating! Thank you and God bless

Use your email address and password to sign in. Click on "Actions." Point to "Audio/Video" and select the "Start a video conversation" option. Navigate to your contact list. Highlight the username of the contact with whom you wish to video chat and click "OK." An invitation to begin video chat will be sent to the contact. Once the contact accepts the invitation, you will receive a confirmation message.

My cam wont work on yahoo


Did you try different Yahoo versions? Some webcams have compatibility issues with later versions of Yahoo messenger.
Another option is to use webcam sharing software, like SplitCam.

You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
