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. Yahoo Setup:

Please, try to update your msn and yahoo version: 1. check your messenger version (same procedure for each): click on help>in drop down menu click on "about ...">it shows the messenger version. 2. Go to official site of each your messengers and see if the version you've got is outdated. 3. If there is a latter version of messenger follow these steps: ---go to START button, click on Control Panel>Programs>Uninstall a Program>Windows Live Essentials and uninstall. Then go to the official site, download the latest version of Windows Live Essentials and install. ---For Yahoo Messenger follow the same procedure as above, but instead Windows Live Essentials choose Yahoo Messenger. Then go to official Yahoo download website, download the latest version of messenger and install it. 4. Restart your computer. It should work now. In case it does not work, follow the same procedure as above, but now choose your webcam and uninstall it. Then go to this link: http://download.cnet.com/Veo-Mobile-Advanced-Web-Camera/3000-18489_4-62939.html and download the driver, install it, restart the computer. It should work now.
Actually yahoo messenger supports voice communication. Its enabled by default. You just need a Headset (Headphones and a Microphone).
And you have to have Sound Drives installed and functioning.
With one exception, you can do voice communication.
You cannot make Phone calls without buying credits. And Yahoo has limited support to Phone networks.
However you can do voice communication including Video (Videoconferencing) between two or More Computers.
Its totally free of charge.
You have to have a web cam in order to send your Webcam Live Videos.
You can adjust these setting after signing in to Yahoo Messenger.
Go to Messenger and then Preferences.
From there, you can adjust Voice and Video, Webcam etc.
Windows Messenger is pretty much hit and miss. I have a built in webcam on my laptop. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. There's no real fix to this problem, just cross your fingers. Restarting your computer works sometimes but not always.
Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.
Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 126.96.36.199 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
