2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Notes:
  • The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

Can't make a video E-mail call/web chat


Gmail helps you stay in touch in a variety of ways. Its offerings range from its basic function email to more advanced features such as phone calls and video chatting. To send an email or chat via text on Gmail, you don't need to do anything more than create an account. Before you can start video chatting with your Gmail contacts, however, you must install the required software.

Visit the Google Voice installation page (link below). http://www.google.com/chat/video Click the blue "Install voice and video chat" button. When the process is complete, you see a page congratulating you on installing Google voice and video chat. Click the "Gmail" link on this page to go to your Gmail account. Hover your mouse over an online Gmail contact in your contact list. Click "Chat" in the list that appears. This opens a chat with the contact in question in the lower right corner of your Gmail screen. Click the small video camera icon within the chat window to initiate a video chat. Before the chat begins, your contact must accept the video call. You and the person you're calling must have webcams. Most modern laptops come with built-in webcams, and peripheral webcams are available at computer stores.

Thru the program your using for the microphone, see if there is a way to change the volume thru there just to make sure the program isn't messing up the microphone.

If you still can't get it to work then we know the microphone portion of the webcam is definitely defective but at least in this way we will havve verified it properly.

Unable to chat on AIm with camera that is already set up


Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. Same way wih AIM. Normal 0 I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "CALLIN & DEVICES."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio"
In Blue "Open the call setup Assistant"
When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.
Hope this helps. Bud
