I dont know how to use it

Hi you did not mentioned how to use on which application, for example if its in yahoo messenger than
To find out what the requirements are for a messenger webcam check out the following
Once you have your webcam working outside of Yahoo Messenger you have to configure it to messenger
open messenger - on top toolbar > messenger > preferences > connection - select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in bottom boxes > apply > ok
> messenger > my webcam - warning panel will come on click 'ok' and your webcam will launch.
allow options
messenger > preferences > webcam - make your selections about who you want to allow to view you
in use - when you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > actions > 'invite to view my webcam' this will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'accept' - they will see you ( can check status on bottom left of webcam panel
there is a shortcut ( cam picture ) in toolbar and one down by your pic as well but these do not always work
your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

My yahoo and webcam won't work together i keep getting an error message on yahoo, what do i do???

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
Use Internet Explorer to visit this page to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control

Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

I don't really know how to use it. It was a gift from my daughter after my hard drive crashed.

Well, it's very easy for you to use a web camera. First you have to decide how do you want to use it.. means you can use it for video chatting through Paltalk, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Skype etc. For video chat you will need to install it in your PC.

To install first connect the web cam with PC. Insert the installation CD in CD/DVD-ROM, run Setup.exe and install it. Once setup is successfully completed you may need to restart the PC.

Now open and sign in your chat client (MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger, Gtalk messenger, AOL etc.) For example: If you want to start share your web cam in Yahoo messenger, just Login with your ID and on Messenger choose option My Webcam.One warning message will OK....your webcam will start....Now if you want to invite someone to view your webcam, simply click on his/her ID and open IM on Actions, choose More Actions from down of the list....and click on Invite to view my webcam....if he/she accepts your invitation...he/she will able to see you....again if you want to see someone who having the IM window by clicking his/her ID.... follow option Actions > More Actions and click on View will send the request to him/her...if he/she accept your will able to see him/her....

For MSN messenger....sign in to your messenger and click on Actions and from list choose option Video and click on Show my webcam to view your webcam to others from your contact list.....or click on Start a video call to start video chat.....

To see others webcam click on View a contact's webcam....if the person accept your will able to see his/her webcam....

Same to other chat client too...just little different in options....

I think you can get it easily...

My web cam is not show video when i start it shows only blank

Use Your Webcam in Yahoo Messenger Step1Head 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). Step2Click 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. Step3Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend. Step4Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. Step5Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Step6Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. Step7Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed.
