When i make a call on the skype...the other person sees the pink video of mine ...plus i see myself pink too...what can i do to solve it...My Os win7..


This might be an issue with your web cam settings or the web cam itself. Try going through the options of the web cam to see if there are any settings making the web cam display everything pink. If not then try the web cam in another computer (I'm assuming you have a desktop with an external web cam) see if the video is still pink. If it is then there is an issue with your web cam if not then it is an issue with the settings on your computer

In the event that you are using a laptop with a built in web cam you might want to check if you still have a warranty to get the web cam repaired.

Hope this helps

I want to chat with my sister using computer with logitech web cam, but unfortunately I cant see her and she cant see me.


What software you use for chatting? Yahoo/Skype/MSN?

Most of the Chat softwares, have an option where you go and choose the hardware to capture the videos from. Probably, something might be wrong there!

I just want to know how to use my webcam


Download and install Skype. Your web cam will be configured automatically. If your family has Skype you can carry on a video call without charge.
Each person needs to have Skype installed but, there is no charge for it.

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!!

Web cams and microphone


Hi, First I would suggest you get a Microsoft Life Cam VX-3000 as it will install the easiest and has a mic built in. Then I would suggest you and your family download SKYPE as it is FREE to talk on using the computer. It allows oyou to connect with several family members. Only have to pay if you telephone anyone from the computer using Skype.
So download SKYPE from this site: http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/windows/beta/
and follow these instruction to setup your voice/video.
Normal 0 After you install Skype and have it operational with you ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can Visit this site for additional information to setup video.

Hope this helps. Bud

Im from the philippines i want to call my sister who is from dubai can you help me do this?


There are plenty of great options.

Now if you are looking for a Pay Option you can use Skype (They Offer Unlimited World Wide Calling for 9.95 a month to landlines) If you and your sister both have a computer with internet access, mic , and speakers/headphones. Then you can both use Skype and talk to each other for free. If you both have a Web cam , Mic , and Speakers/Headphones then you can Video Chat with eachother useing ooVoo , EyeChat , even AIM and Y! Messenger offer Video Chatting. Oh yes and All of the Video Chat Options I listed are completely free. I hope this helps. =) Good Luck! and Take Care.

Web cam


No.

Is's ok to have only one cam.

You can see the video from your oposite if they have a cam.
Or if only you have a cam the other party should be able to see you.
