Re: cant find how to get picture out over air and also...

You do not need to open the camera up to use it in your IM programme. The programme itself will need to be set up so that it knows you have a camera, so in the optins or settings or preferences menu the cam will need to be set up and also need to enable in the menu somewhere something similair to 'show others I have a web cam'. When you click open a video call the camera will automatically turn on and you can adjust the size and volume to suit. As for pictures, you use the camera software to do this and in options or preferences there will be a default place where the pictures will be stored, eg my pictures. To send a picture within the IM programme you use 'send a file' and it will ask you then to browse for the file or photo, click open and it will load ready for your IM recipient to accept and download it, if you are sent one then it will probably go to 'my downloads' folder or 'my received files' folder. in your firewall or security programme in the allowed programmes or allowed settings make sure Yahoo messenger is in the allowed list, if not add it in whatever way your programme works. If you have to pay your ISP more money to add to the allowed list, then cancel the security software, and use a freeware one. Paying for added security, when it needs to be allowed and not stopped, it's a rip off, you do not need to pay for any added security, in fact you can readily download more than adequate programmes for free on the net, namely 'Zone alarm', and most of these ISP security programmes are no better than a reputable free one.

Why is my webcam picture on my pc fuzzy

i hate to be blunt but the reason that the picture is fuzzy is because if the type of cam. its about a $20 cam logitech. if you really want quality picture you will have to pay more for your cam. i have a logitech also and it really has crappy pictures. i bought a more exspensive one and
the pictures are very clear. sorry to say but its the cam its self. even if you adjust it in settings the picture really will never be clear.

Can't play videos from the gallery

From what I know, most webcams save Still pictures and videos in two different folders. Have been so with every cam I hav had. For why the media player doesn't play the videos in hand, try downloading the latest version of the media player from the manufacturers website.
