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 ( ) 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 ( ) 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

How can i download a4tech webcam coz i dont have installer?

If you are using Vista, you can extract the file from a zip by choosing a right button click of your mouse on the file when it fully downloaded from here and yes the download from the manufacturer website is in zip format. You will need to learn to use these compression routines like Winzip and Winrar if you intend to really use the internet for any practical purposes.
But more important then learning how to use a compression routine is learning how to use Windows Explorer, not the Internet Explorer. a master of Windows Explorer can do more or less anything he or she wants with computers going all the way back to 1988 or longer and it will give you some measure of self-assurance too. Just get yourself a decent how-to book from the library and concentrate on Windows Explorer. You will be amazed at what it allow you to accomplish but can be dangerous if not properly used.
