How do i turn on my webcam?


Hello,

First, make suer you have the camera drivers installed.

Here's how you can use the camera with Yahoo messenger, for instance:

Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already (see Resources below).

Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting.

Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend

Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active.

Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams.

If you webcam is working in Windows then it should work in any program. Including Messenger. You dont get a driver just for yahoo.

Webcam


Download Yahoo Messenger (www.yahoo.com) . Create a free ID on yahoo as ask the other person to do the same. Install Yahoo Messenger and Login using your ID and start IM conversation. You will get a webcam button on the IM (instant Messenger) window . Click on that and the other person will see you and vice versa. This is just one way, there are other messengers too and gmail too offers video conversation in its mail. So enjoy

I bought a mikomi dc-7115 webcam and all i can see is a white sreen and everyone else thats on msn yahoo and frogcam iv installed and uninstalled 6 times and its still the same


Apparrently after looking for this product, I could not find much of a lead to the manufacturers website.

The biggest problems with mikomi models are driver issues.
The worst part is Mikomi does not have an official website due to the fact that a company argos a company retailer from United Kingdom and a part of Ireland.

If your product came with a Cd with drivers and you installed the product the proper way, it should work with no problem.
Usually drivers will give you utility tools to test your webcam.

If that doesnt work, check the system requirements for the webcam. Make sure your computer meets those requirements. Then Proceed by making sure your system is up to date. ESPECIALLY the Messengers you would like to use your Cam on. This usually does the job.

If the above does not work, try removing Messengers, Re-intalling a newer up to date messenger...
(some of the newer were made to work on up to date messengers)... Then proceed to re-install your webcam.

Lastly try cables.

These are possible solutions to getting the webcam to work. I hope this works

If not i hope someone can give you another great solutions. Some issues are harder to fix than others. Driver issues can be complicated because it can be many things. or order of installation.

Wish you luck
