Try Skype they are the best for now.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

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 can not make video calls as it says that no webcam as been detected.... in the mean time my laptop has a webcam built in... please help me


Hi there !

Try to figure it out, most problems on video calls arises from the messenger software ( like yahoo messenger, skype messenger and others) that they used. For some reason, the software got corrupted or malware manipulate your computer not to function your webcam.

1. I suggest you uninstall and reinstall the messenger software you used to correct the error and try to use the webcam if it solves your problem on webcam.

2. Otherwise, use other messenger and see if still the same problem that video calls cannot be made. The problem sometimes is conflict with the windows operatings system registry that needs to be repair.

3. Another way is that your webcam driver is corrupted and needs to be install again.

I hope it helps you solving your problem. Good luck and regards.

How do you get to your built in webcam in a compaq laptop?


Open your My Computer and at the bottom part of the windows you will find a USB Video Device icon. Double click on it and it will activate your built-in camera.

Now use a video chatting program like skype or Yahoo Messenger with your webcam.

Webcam


Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
