I am considering buying a web cam so that when I go out of state for a couple months I can talk and see my little grandson in person. But it looks quite complicated, so I am not sure this is a good idea....


I recommend you use the Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 or VX-6000. It is the best for getting support and drivers. It cost
around $38.00 for the VX-3000.
Microsoft cameras mentioned are good for use with all the Windows Operating Systems through Windows 7 their new Operating System.
I will give you some information you can save for future use if you buy any web camera.

Save this for future use:
Follow these instructions and your camera should work properly.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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.


1. Windows Live Messenger:

Go to this site http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger and download 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: Your 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

Dont know how to connect with Friends' webcams


Make sure you have all the correct drivers for the camer.

Then go into the "options" setting of either yahoo or MSN, which ever you are using. There should be a "video" settings, and use all the tools in there to set up the camera.

In both MSN and yahoo, to see their camera, they have to allow it. The problem might be on there end also, double check with them if others can see their camera.

Camera wont work in multiple windows


Generally You can only use a web cam on one window at a time. Unless windows has let you do that before (it hasn't for me =[ )  Even skype wont let you do that.

Web cams


You need to find a video chat program that you are comfortable with. Most of the major Instant Messenger programs have been adding video chat to their features over the last couple of years. Check this link for a good summary of current products and some excellent advice and reviews. http://video-chat-im-software-review.toptenreviews.com/ They favour windows live messenger - just be sure that whichever program you choose will support your camera, and will work on your PC. If you need help using the software, please ask again once you have decided which to use and we can try to help, but the majority of them are reasonably easy to set up and use. Hope this helps :)
