How can i use my video cam?


There are many ways to use your webcam on Yahoo Messenger. First off make sure you have logged in. Click the Messenger icon on your desktop. Then find the "Start My Webcam" button in Options to begin broadcasting. Another way is to, when talking to a friend, click the camera icon that appears in your chat window. You can also click on a contact on your Contact List and click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' When your chat begins your webcam will already be ready and on! And if you want to see who's cam is on find and click the 'View Webcam' link located in the IM box. But if you want to see who's watching you click 'Webcam' then 'Who's Watching Me' and find out which of your friends are watching your every move! Hope this helped! :D

How to talk to my friends using the webcam?


Make sure you're using the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. Secondly, you'll see a clickable option named "Start My Webcam." After that, it will begin loading your webcam. Next, you'll see a little camera icon that appears in the chat window when you're talking with your friend(s). Click on the contact from your contact list, then click "Invite to View My Webcam." This will open a new IM window with your webcam live. Be sure to click "View Webcam" link while talking to others in the IM so you can see their webcams!

*Tip: You can use the "Super Webcam" mode to receive high quality video and imagery feed in your webcam chat!

YAHOO IM 9 and 10. When i have the chat window open to a specific friend the webcam function is not avaiable for use, or the photo share option. Then others it is fully functional. Is there a problem if...


PhotoSharing is possible with Yahoo IM 8,9 and 10
About Webcam sharing, if you are using Yahoo 10 and other person is using yahoo 9 or 8, the Video call will not work since Yahoo 10 will check for version compatibility

you can bypass this by asking the other person to click on the option, View Webcam, this will initiate an invitation sent to you, you can accept it and the other person can see you. vice versa you can click on view webcam and the other person has to accept.

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.

Problem when inviting to view my webcam


Normal 0 See section C. Windows Live Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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.

  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
  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

Can mac users view me


this is not a Mac or PC issue. This is a connectivity and bandwidth issue. You connection is timing out waiting for a reply that might be coming in but too late to be acknowledged.
