Re: friend cant see my webcam
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.

There are many ways to use your webcam on Yahoo Messenger. First off make sure you have logged in. Click the Messenger icon on your desktop. Then find the "Start My Webcam" button in Options to begin broadcasting. Another way is to, when talking to a friend, click the camera icon that appears in your chat window. You can also click on a contact on your Contact List and click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' When your chat begins your webcam will already be ready and on! And if you want to see who's cam is on find and click the 'View Webcam' link located in the IM box. But if you want to see who's watching you click 'Webcam' then 'Who's Watching Me' and find out which of your friends are watching your every move! Hope this helped! :D
