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

How do i work the webcam on the studio one 19 desktop dell? I see it on the computer but there's no button to press to get it to open and/or work or even get to it.


You should be able to activate the webcam with any webcam enabled software. There's no buttons or anything to "turn it on" as it will turn on with software that needs webcam.

For example, try using it with the video chat feature built into Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, or Windows Live Messenger. They should all detect the webcam automatically and start using it.

Your computer is not connected to the network when cam talk


In order to use the video call feature both parties have to be in Yahoo Messenger 10.
If you both have Yahoo you can use the webcam
If you are cross chatting - eg Messenger X MSN, only basic IM will be available

MY WEBCAM DOES NOT WORK IN MSN WHEN I TRY TO USED IT SAYS THAT IT COULD NOT START MY CAMERA DEVICE WHAT SHOULD I DO?


There a couple of things you can check - Firstly can you access your webcam via a shortcut and access any of the normal features, the easiest thing to check is will it take a still picture?

If that doesn't work - Go to control panel from your start bar and check device manager, can you find your webcam in the list of devices and does it appear in cameras and webcams?

If you can access the webcam features the problem is not related to your web cam but the software.

Tell me how you get on with the above, and there are a few more simple things to check or change to make sure you can get your webcam in MSN.

Webcam driver


unfortantly because you have downgraded from the most advaned microsoft program there is, you dont have all the fetures that vista has.
in order to get the features back, you need to reinstall vista again.

Acer crystal eye cam will not work with yahoo messenger


check the features in the yahoo messengers i believe version 8 for vista will not allow you to use a webcam if you have vista operating system. Im not sure if version 9 allows you to or not. Like i say you have to check out the features for your version of yahoo and see if it allows you to use the webcam based on what version of windows you are using
