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.

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

Can not see people i chat to


Hi Susan hales,

Usual problems when you can see the person you are chatting with is,

Internet Connection ( Mostly Problem ) - Try to Contact your internet provider to verify there connection issue if ever they had.

Camera Connection Problem ( Mostly Problem ) - Check your camera cable. Sometimes the reaason why yo ucan see the person you chat is the camera windows is double open. mean a default camera window is open in the desktop. and another one is open in your yahoo chat. try to check if all the cables are properly inserted.

Usually this problem can be solve by just asking your chatmate to be the one to invite you to chat, if it still not work you now need to invite your chatmate to a chat. sometimes this sequence fix the problem.

Hope This Helps ^ ^,

I dont know how to use it


Hi you did not mentioned how to use on which application, for example if its in yahoo messenger than
To find out what the requirements are for a messenger webcam check out the following http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...
Once you have your webcam working outside of Yahoo Messenger you have to configure it to messenger
open messenger - on top toolbar > 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 bottom boxes > apply > ok
test
> messenger > my webcam - warning panel will come on click 'ok' and your webcam will launch.
allow options
messenger > preferences > webcam - make your selections about who you want to allow to view you
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' - they will see you ( can check status on bottom left of webcam panel
there is a shortcut ( cam picture ) in toolbar and one down by your pic as well but these do not always work
your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

Black screen on webcam


Hi!

Have you already tried sliding the front cover? I have an a4tech cam also but the model is different. For it to work, I need to slide down the cover so that the camera itself would be revealed.
