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

I Have a Logitech Quickcam and it works... but it won't on yahoo


If the camera is working on other programs it should work on Yahoo Messenger.

The way to check is to ( in Messenger ) open "Messenger".
My Webcam.
You should see your picture on the camera there.
If you have the picture there then goto "Preferences" , "Webcam".

In there you will see 3 settings
"Always Ask my permission"
"Allow everyone to view my webcam"
"Always allow the following people to view my webcam"

Choose one of the settings, I use always allow the following people to view my webcam.

You can also tick the chatroom box.

Hi, my name is jullie and i have an acer extensa5620 the webcam on it doesn't work in yahoo messenger for some reason, but it does work in msn. I though it was a matter of me not installing yahoo properly,...


you have to go into the "macromedia flash" settings and "allow" the webam to be used by yahoo messenger, whilst in yahoo messenger itself.
If that doesn't work have a look at the webcams actual software

hope this helps

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.

Camera can not work with yahoo messenger


In order to use your camera, Yahoo messenger must recognize it. If the driver is not compatible with Internet webcam usage, Yahoo Messenger will not recognize it.
