    I am on Skype using Microsoft LifeCan VX-1000. I have taken Skype totally off my system for a previously problem and re-installed. I can see myself in my Cam window and I can see my contact in the Skype window, however they cannot see me. I have clicked on the bar at the bottom which is supposed to let them be aable to see me.

    Hope someone can take me throught a solution as you have been great before with other problems.

My web cam comes up showing me but I do not know how to get another computer to see me.

This is not on your end but the end of the person you wish to converse with. Can you see them? if so your end is working. Talk them into redoing their cam software or have them learn how to use their web cam. I do not think it is on your end of the cam. John

Web cams and microphone

Hi, First I would suggest you get a Microsoft Life Cam VX-3000 as it will install the easiest and has a mic built in. Then I would suggest you and your family download SKYPE as it is FREE to talk on using the computer. It allows oyou to connect with several family members. Only have to pay if you telephone anyone from the computer using Skype.
So download SKYPE from this site:
and follow these instruction to setup your voice/video.
Normal 0 After you install Skype and have it operational with you ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can Visit this site for additional information to setup video.
Hope this helps. Bud

Is your webcam broadcasting? Make sure the window for your cam on their end isn't minimized.
