Microsoft vx-1000 webcam use in uk

We bought a few of these for use here in the US and our daughter is going to be in the UK next month for a semester. the product says on top "for use only in the US & Canada". does this mean she cannot use it over in Wales? thanks

    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
