    My webcam worked on the old messenger. Today I downloaded the new one and it refuses to work. It'll let me do a video call but not just webcam.

    it would seem your webcam starts a default program. do you know what webcam program came with your computer?

    it's also possible that you need to configure your cam settings... have you done this yet?

I cant take a picture with my bisoncam what do i do/ when people cal me i can see them but they cant see me


This will depend on which messenger program you are using ?
Skype Double-click the "Skype" icon on your desktop and log in with your username and password. Click "Tools" at the top of the screen, and then click "Options." Click "Video" in the dropdown menu. The blue icon on the left will display your video options. Check "Enable Skype Video." You'll now have access to Skype video settings. Set up your webcam connection. It should already be connected to your computer with drivers installed. Select the webcam from the dropdown list and test it again to make sure it works. Set your video call preferences below. You can have video start automatically if you check--what else?--"Start my video automatically." Click "Save" in the bottom right to save your settings. To make a video call, click the video button on your contact list or click "Start Video" once you are already in a call. MSN Messenger Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture. Click the "Webcam" icon. Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to. Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin. Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again. Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer. b> Show or Hide Your Webcam b> Open MSN Messenger on your computer. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list. Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse. Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Yahoo The Internet has made it possible for people thousands of miles apart to communicate in real time without having to rely on making long distance phone calls. Emailing and instant messaging are fantastic tools, but with broadband Internet access it's now possible to see one another, too. If you have a webcam, you're ready to use video conferencing with friends and family around the globe. Yahoo Messenger is the perfect place to get started.

Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already. Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting. Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend. Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed. Hope this helps

    Logitech webcam won't work on windows live messenger


    This could a problem of compatibility. Try to find if your web cam is compatible with windows live messenger for this you have to download from microsoft "amcap.exe". Run it and if you have more than one webcam installed, click the Devices menu and select the one you want to use.
    2. Click the Options menu, then click “Video capture Pin.”
    3. Under “Color Space/Compression:”, choose one of the following formats:
    o RGB 24 (recommend)
    o I420
    o IYUV
    Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible.
    Under “Output Size”, choose one of the following:
    o 160 x 120
    o 320 x 240
    Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible.
    5. Click OK
    6. Close the ampcap application.
    7. From your desktop, click ‘Start’ and select ‘Run’.
    8. In the run box, type: dxdiag
    9. In the confirmation dialog box, click OK.
    10. On the System Tab under ‘System Information’, look for DirectX version. Verify that your version is DirectX 9.0. If it is, just click Exit. If your version is older than 9.0 (any lower number), download the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft.
