when you are in yahoo messenger and you want to let the person whom you are chatting with, all you need it to click on that person's window. go to actions then choose more actions then click on invite to view my webcam.
Webcam not Connected ( to your Messenger ) can usually be overcome by setting your Messenger Internet Connection
MESSENGER INTERNET CONNECTION
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, If not change them > Apply > OK
The problem could be the speed of the internet and also could be the computers memory. Try to reduce the size of the web cam window and also the speed and drop down the quality in the messenger. Try to use only messenger when using web cam not other programs. If this doesn't work try to reinstalling the yahoo messenger.
some times you 1st need an invite to view persons cam.
Try this method;
I discovered that I can view chat room webcams by clicking on the name and selecting Send an Instant Message first, then on the IM box select View Webcam under Actions. (It just doesn't work when I click on their name in the chat room list and select View Webcam from there--unless their webcam says Open Webcam)
