Try both using the exact same version of Yahoo messenger. Sometimes different versions can give problems.
Further you can check the firewall port settings to make sure the webcam feed can pass through the internet. Some details are available in this webcam post and the comments.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

More computers are coming with built-in webcams. They're designed to work in conjunction with instant messaging and VOIP programs like Yahoo! Messenger and Skype. Many photo editing programs, like Google's Picasa, can also capture photos directly from them. This article explains how your webcam with each of these free programs
1. Open Yahoo! Messenger and select "My Webcam" from the "Messenger" menu. This will bring up a window showing what your webcam sees. To invite one of your contacts to view your webcam, right-click on them in your contacts list and choose "Invite to View My Webcam" from the "More Actions" area of the pop-up menu. They will receive an invitation asking them to view your webcam.
2. Open Skype and select a contact you'd wish to call. Skype will automatically detect that you have a webcam attached to your computer and give you the option to place a "Call" or "Video call" to the contact. Choose "Video call" and you're in business.
3. Open Picasa and select the webcam icon to the right of the "Import" button. A window displaying a view from your webcam will pop up. Click the "Record" button or camera icon to begin recording a video or take a snapshot.
