How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

How do i get my fuji e500 to work on yahoo web cam


The web-camera function does only work with Messenger 5 and later. And it is only guaranteed to work when Win XP is installed on both pc's. You probably can't get it to work with Yahoo.

I dont understand how to use my logutech clicksmart 420 ad an webcam


the web cam should have a driver to allow it to communicate with the PC ....after the driver ( the CD from the seller ) was installed ..just plug the camera ...and let the PC find it ..and all
after is proper installed and all the things are OK ...the main use for it is to make video audio calls in MSN messenger ...or Yahoo messenger Skype ...etc
all you have to do is to click the camera button from the conversation window ...and the other person receives an info for your intention ...in that moment you already see yourself in a window
second ...you can use it to make capture like a picture or a/v movies ...using the AM cap feature from the start menu ...( all programs)

Can't use VPC-CG9 as PC camera.


I don't know why this wouldn't work on Vista HP, but this excerpt from the manual suggests that your XP SP1 Pro would not work without the SP2 rollup:

"Please perform the following upgrades before connecting the camera to a computer.
-Upgrade Windows XP to SP2.
Install Windows XP SP2.
-Install Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version.
Download Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version, and install it.
-If using MSN Messenger, please install MSN Messenger 7.0 or later
version."

Perhaps if you are following the steps exactly in the manual and it still does not work, upgrading Messenger will magically help.

My pc won't pick up my cam...i


Did you install the SOFTWARE that came with the Camera BEFORE you plugged in the camera? If not, you will need to disconnect the camera, reboot the PC, install the software and then connect the camera. If the camera is connnected before the software install you won't have the proper drivers for it to work.

Spider-man 3-in-1 digital camera model #94044


Had same problem -- after removing and re-installing both the software and camera (multiple times), I found that I could get the pics via Picasa -- in Picasa, the camera shows up 2 different times for me, as a "dual mode camera"; the 2nd entry works, letting me import the pics. Terrible pics, btw, very blurry and grainy, even when taken in bright light (get what you pay for, right?).

I hate booting back to Windows, though -- I use Linux -- but even gphoto2 (which can handle just about ANY camera that Linux won't handle natively as a USB storage device) can't handle the proprietary encoding format Sakar uses. Oh well.

Digital Camera BenQ DC C500 as a webcam


Digital camera's do not normally operate as a webcam however I have come across the odd one that can do this. Cameras usually appear as a removable disk to the opperating system. Are you sure your camera can work in this way?
