Go to Facebook and log into your account. Click the "Profile" tab. Click the "Video" link in the "Status" menu. Select the "Record a Video" option. For privacy reasons, Facebook requests permission to access your webcam and microphone. Check the box next to "Allow" and click "Close." You will appear in real time on the Facebook webcam window. Position yourself in front of the webcam and click the red "Record" button to begin recording your new video. When you're finished, press the "Stop" button. Click the "Play" button to view your video. If you want to post it on your profile, add a brief message and click "Share." If you're not satisfied with the outcome, press "Reset" and record a new video. b> Video Message Log into your Facebook account Navigate through your friends list and select the friend you want to send a video message to on Facebook. Click the "Send Message" link in the upper-right corner of your friend's page. Click the "Video" icon in the attachments section at the bottom of the "New Message" window. Check the box next to "Allow" to give Facebook permission to access your webcam and microphone, and then click "Close." Press "Record" and record your new video message.

How To Create and Send Video Mail for Free


Today anyone with a webcam can quickly and easily create and send video messages for free. You don't have to record videos with expensive equipment, and you don't have to download software. Best of all no expertise is required. If you can create and send text email you can send video mail.


Most people believe that sending videos means recording very large files with a camcorder, and trying to attach it to an email. It usually doesn't work due to email file attachment size limits. mailVU.com is one solution that doesn't require camcorders or file attachments. They have a free video mail service that doesn't require a software download, and it doesn't require a user account. I tried it and put together this step-by-step process for creating your first video mail.


What do you need for video mail?
  • Computer (PC, MAC, Linux all work)
  • Webcam
  • Microphone, either built-in to your webcam or laptop, or external headset
  • Broadband Internet connection


Begin by opening any browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) and going to http://mailVU.com. You will be prompted by the following request to allow access to your webcam. Select Allow.

Now you should be able to see yourself on the left side under Live Camera. If you don't see yourself click on the drop down list of cameras and select the one that works for you. On the Mac it is typically called USB Webcam. Note that until you record a message the deletion options and email option is grayed out at the bottom of the screen.

Click the red Record button above your image to start the 1 minute recording session. This button will change to Stop after you click it, a notification will appear that recording is in process, and a timer counts down from 1 minute. When done click the red Stop button.


Now that the recording is made the information at the bottom of the screen is available to use. You may play back your message before sending it to someone. To play it back simply click the green Play button above your image. Your recording will now play in the right side window while you still see yourself live in the left side Live Camera window.

If you want to record over your message, click the red Record button again to overwrite it. When you are happy with your recording decide if you want to use an auto deletion function at the bottom.

The default deletion time frame is 30 days, but you can change it to anything between 1 and 30 days. And you could also specify the video to be deleted after a certain number of views. If both are checked then whichever event happens first will destruct the video mail.


You can now click Send this as a Video Mail and you will have the following screen to populate:

You fill in the email address fields, and you have the option of adding a text message to your video mail. You can copy yourself if you click the box at the bottom. When done click Send Email. Congratulations! You have now sent your first video mail!


The user will receive an email which is less than 25kb in size that includes a picture of you linking to your video message. They click on your picture and click play and they will be able to hear and see you. To record a video message back to you they can follow this same process.


By using this process anyone can quickly and easily send video messages to anyone in the world.

I want to take a picture with my webcam for my facebook profile picture


Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right tick in either windows software or the all software box. If you don't have or cant find the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html It might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: This will find all of your outdated drivers This program will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point. Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated. Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer b> b> Go to Facebook and log into your account.

Click the "Play" button to view your video. If you want to post it on your profile, add a brief message and click "Share." If you're not satisfied with the outcome, press "Reset" and record a new video. b> Video Message Log into your Facebook account Navigate through your friends list and select the friend you want to send a video message to on Facebook.
