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.
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.

No picture showing to viewer. I can see them though. Audio is great, but they see a black screen. It says webcam in use by "VID". Stop this and reconnect. How do you stop this? It doesn't...


Sounds like you need to uninstall the camera software by going to add/remove programs in the control panel and reinstall. Some other program has stolen the drivers for your camera or the camera has associated itself with another program.

Bought a lifecam vx-700 webcam, but when i try to use it on y!messenger, it just shows a black screen. i don't know how to make it work. help!


Try installing the driver CD that comes with the webcam unit. Operating systems like Windows XP with Service Pack 2 may install a temporary driver for your webcam, but they don't work most of the time. Please reply if this has helped you. Thanks.

My camera just shows a black screen


Software or hardware problem ?
Test your hardware here by clicking on "allow" in the top window and seeing if your webcam works in the left panel
http://www.testmycam.com/
If it works there you know you have a software problem
Solutions
1) go to your Device Manager - expand the "Imaging", file update your driver by right clicking the webcam text and select update - take the internet option when prompted
or
2) You can uninstall the webcam program and run the CD or go to the manufacturer's support website and download from there.
or
3) If your OS recognises new hardware - uninstall the webcam software - plug the webcam in and let it find and install the software.

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.
