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.

Hi you did not mentioned how to use on which application, for example if its in yahoo messenger than
To find out what the requirements are for a messenger webcam check out the following http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...
Once you have your webcam working outside of Yahoo Messenger you have to configure it to messenger
open messenger - on top toolbar > messenger > preferences > connection - select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in bottom boxes > apply > ok
test
> messenger > my webcam - warning panel will come on click 'ok' and your webcam will launch.
allow options
messenger > preferences > webcam - make your selections about who you want to allow to view you
in use - when you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > actions > 'invite to view my webcam' this will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'accept' - they will see you ( can check status on bottom left of webcam panel
there is a shortcut ( cam picture ) in toolbar and one down by your pic as well but these do not always work
your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

My webcam not working on yahoo and skype, its working fine


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER
Use Internet Explorer to visit this page to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

I tried to view my friends webcam on yahoo messenger and she tried to view mine but it said that she had to give me permission to view her webcam and neither one of us know how to give permission to view...


There is option somewher in your messenger
that asks you to give the other person permission.
Could possibly be somewhere in the chat box when you open that.
I don't go on chat so I can't tell you exactly where but it is there.
Open your chat box and try in there first.Should say tools video or options.
Hope this helps.
