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.
  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

I set up my web cam and i hear my sister when she talks but she cant hear me


well the first thing that you got to check is that if the web-cam has an inbuilt mic to it
If there is no mic then you will have to attach a seperate mic/headset for voice
Also check if its USB port or normal Audio/Video output...if it had audio/video cable then you will have to attach both the cable to the correct port in the Cabinet
If it has USB output cable with inbuilt mic then try to unistall and reinstall the driver software and attach the the webcam only after installing the drivers

I want to use webcam so i can see and hear my sister when i email, the cd is installed and i can see myself on the screen, what's next, i'm lost


There's not really a good way to do this using email alone. Most instant messaging applications now have a video chat option. I prefer Google Talk for this but I believe AOL, MSN, and other have it.
My preferred method for doing video chat however, it using Skype. You can go to http://www.skype.com to download the free software. Once you and your sister install it, you will need to add each other to the contacts list. Then you should have the option to place a video call.
My sister is overseas and using Skype, she was able to be on video for the birth of my granddaughter. Skype is amazing!!
