See section D. AIM AOL Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
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.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
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

How to install


Hello,

you can follow the instructions below as it will help to solve your problem.

  1. Install the webcam by plugging the USB cable in to the port, and turning on computer. The computer's operating system will find the camera, and ask you to install the driver. The camera should have come with an installation disc. Place the disc in the drive when it prompts you to install the driver click on "Yes." At this time it also will install the camera software.
  2. Adjust the camera by going into the camera software. This will allow you to change things like the speaker, microphone and camera resolution settings. Focus by using the ring around the lens. The camera software should also allow you to take still photos from it as well as motion pictures. You can also usually do audio captures. These things will be labeled on the menu usually by obvious icons like a camera for still pictures.
  3. Speak into the built in microphone that is in the camera or use an external headphone set.
  4. Call a friend with Skype, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ, or Windows Live. All these Voice over IP software applications come integrated with webcam features that will allow you to talk to and see the person you call. To do this simply load up the software and call a person from your call list. To add a contact simply type in new contact and put in a person's e-mail address or user id. Either use a pair of headphones or the camera's built in microphone to speak into. There will be a button in Skype for a video call. The other softwares will also have a feature like this although it may say webcam.
I hope this will be of great help in assisting your webcam installation.

Good luck,

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

AIM software/ Web camera


Assuming your camera works with some other software or online application the problem is probably AIM...uninstall and reinstall AIM. If it does not work with other software go to device manager in Windows and make sure the device is listed without an exclamation mark next to it. If there is one reinstall the driver. If any of this is not clear....bug me. 80% chance one of the above should solve the problem. Tango...
