    Here is info I wrote to setup Audio & Video. See section B. Yahoo. Should help solve your problem.








    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.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


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.
