Question about Computers & Internet
would start out by testing if the webcam works in any other software. For example if you got any software to go with the cam to set it up. If the webcam works in other software you follow these steps:
Open the messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and click My Webcam.
There you click on File and then Preferences.
That should open an options window. From there you go to Webcam or Webcam Broadcast.
There you'll find a button that says "Camera Source".
Make sure that the selected Webcam there is the one that you're using and click OK.
Otherwise if your computer doesn't recognize the webcam at all I would suggest to reinstall the drivers for the cam. You can either find them on a CD that you got with the cam, or if you didn't get one you can go to the manufacturers webpage and look for "Drivers", it's usually found under "Support" or a similar section of the page. Find the driver that matches your webcam and operating system (such as Windows 7 or XP etc.)
When you've downloaded them, install the file you got, follow the instructions and restart your computer and then try again. It should fix your problem.
