Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have there 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.

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.

Hope this helps. Bud

Logitech webcam cant take picture den i get a messages windows shut down program.


Every now and then you are likely to run into Logitech webcams install errors and freezes resulting from system changes and updates


1Click the Windows "Start" button and click "All Programs."

  • 2Scroll up and select "Logitech." Select "Logitech QuickCam" to launch the QuickCam software.
  • 3Check the video record button. If it is recording, stop it to disable the streaming. Launch your other program such as Skype, AIM, Yahoo! or Live Messenger. There should no longer be a sharing issue.
    I don't know it would work,but have a try.

    make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

    Enet webcam not working with messengers


    Download the manufacturer's software ( by using the CD or from their website )
    Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
    Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, unless the software has a feature for this.
    Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

    INTERNET CONNECTION
    Webcam connected
    Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
    make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

    TESTING
    > Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

    DEFAULT
    With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
    Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

    PERMISSION OPTIONS
    > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

    IN USE
    When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so dont be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
    There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
    Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

    If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

    Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


    You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
    1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
    2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.

    Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks


    Bob P,
    I have Logitech Quick Cam STX not exactly what you have but I think close. I got it to work with Messenger. I have made it through the installation. Not sure what I did to make it work.
    I would assume it can be done. If you think it would help to compare our settings some how or for me to help in some other way please let me know. I will be online lots during the day next week as I am not working next week.

    Good luck.
