Close any application that is using the camera
open YM and run the configuration
if you want to use the webcam with other programs at the same time, there's another way to do it.

Yes you may need to turn off amcap because that can be causing some conflict with YM that;s why YM is not detecting the webcam on your computer because there is a program that is using it..

How do i change the camera on the computer to video instead of picture?


the video mode is only working when you activate it on a recording mode The AMcap from the start all programs does that ..
when you open it from My computer ..all it does is taking picture...
you can also use the recording mode from the windows movie maker (a windows built program present in all programs ) ...and all you have to do is choose import from ...cam ..(webcam) ..
also the video mode is automatically activated when you use it in a instant messaging program like windows live messenger or yahoo messenger ..or skype...in these cases is activated from the program itself..
You can use it in almost al capturing programs ..if you want to make a video capture...but ..either AMcap..(video capture) ..or windows movie maker ...will do the job just fine..
