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..

Hi!

Use AmCap to view your webcam without using YM. You can download the software at this site:

http://amcap.en.softonic.com/ .

You cannot use AmCap and YM at the same time , so exit AMCap if you will use your webcam with Yahoo.

Good luck and have a nice day!
