Normal 0 Disconnectthe Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded softwareprogram. When the program asks you to connect the camera to theUSB port, do so and it should work.Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the cameraon your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:

  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. Yourfriends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

  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.

How to install that web cam model PK 635 M in windows 7.. coz evrytime i open my cam in yahoo messenger it say that no camera was found in the system


http://www.driverstock.com/a4tech-pk-635-driver-download/1-3-4200/index.html

I noticed that there is no Windows 7 specific driver for this older camera. This can be problematic as the older XP drivers sometimes work and sometimes do not work in Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit.

Good luck on this compatibility issue with Yahoo Messenger. Maybe try Skype or Windows Live Messenger for video chat.

Philips web cam spc110nc


Philips Webcam SPC110NC doesnt work with Yahoo Messenger as advertised. Packaging says it works with MSN/Yahoo/AIM, but when troubleshooting Yahoo IM using AMCAP.EXE (as per the Yahoo webcam help site), it shows color space/compression used by this product is MJPG and this is the only option. Yahoo IM only supports RGB 24, I420, or IYUV.
