A4tech web cam


Got a solution... you have to close and exit the A4tech (AMCAP) screen. Then start the yahoo webcam by clicking the "My Webcam" on the yahoo messenger. At this time, you should be able to see yourself at yahoo webcam.

Hope this helps.

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.
