If I will be using my web cam I have this error message. Error 502 - Bad Request The server could not resolve your request for uri:...


There's no problem with your webcam.Its the yahoo messenger error. I recommend you reinstall the yahoo messenger and reconfigure the webcam to yahoo messenger. By the way your error is an application error online when yahoo messenger cannot process your request online because of a broken server/heavy traffic via internet.

Yahoo messenger stops responding when u open my webcam on yahoo messenger


Please write what webcam you using with your yahoo messenger? and what is the camera type Desktop or Laptop built in? I think your webcam driver is not digitally signed...And in that purpose you could receive an error pop up or error box during installation containing Stop Installation or Continue Anyway...Try to use any branded webcam like Microsoft, A4 tech, Sony, Logitech etc... I think you can get my point... For further asistance please be with Fixya....Thanks and Good Luck

Friend cant see my webcam


Try both using the exact same version of Yahoo messenger. Sometimes different versions can give problems.
Further you can check the firewall port settings to make sure the webcam feed can pass through the internet. Some details are available in this webcam post and the comments.

Acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger


Make sure all of your drivers are updated for the webcam and the sound card. To check the drivers go to the manufacturer's websites for each of these products. Also, make sure your yahoo messenger is updated and make sure that the Windows Live Essentials is updated to latest version. If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.
