Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Unable to view frinds on laptop using the webcam. Hard disk of the laptop is new

You're not going to see your friends on your web cam, have they checked their cables for proper connection, as well have you checked yours and made sure you have the most updated driver for your cam and the software running it.

If you are able to see them & the you are able to see yourself using your webcam then is nothing wrong on your side.

Just ask your frind to check his settings so that he can see you.

Good Luck.

Sakar camera driver

Went to the site, had to download an alternate cam driver, looked just as cheesy, so I figured it may be the same thing. The company is probably Chinese, and they don't care what happens when it gets to the United States-I mean that too. The driver says "vgac.exe, and that is what the computer recognized when I first set the cam in. hope this fixes it for you.
