Read this and it will help to setup your camera program.

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

I want to invite my friend to viem my web cam on yahoo massanger,but can not...i got the massage that my net working are buzy and want to me try letter.


First you have to go to the menu (File, I think) ->Preferences (or press Ctrl+Shift+p) and go to Webcam to see if your webcam is connected and working properly (the name of your webcam <e.g.: Trust xY20> should appear at Camera Source). If all this is right and your Internet connection is working, I don't see what you can't invite your friend to view your webcam. You could simply try again if the message still appears :).

Friend cant see my webcam


Try both using the exact same version of Yahoo messenger. Sometimes different versions can give problems.
Further you can check the firewall port settings to make sure the webcam feed can pass through the internet. Some details are available in this webcam post and the comments.

When I try to view my friend's webcam it won't work.


Hi there

Let me give you the easy way out...try the other way round! that is INVITE HER to view your webcam and see what happens. Most probably it will work fine. I hope this was immediate enough! If still it doesn't work and it's some weird problem associated with her YM then get hold of MSN messenger and install it both of you it will work fine. One more thing check out the webcam options by clicking the webcam in yahoo messenger to see if there are some permission related options there.
