Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo 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.

How do i connect my web cam to my yahoo messinger


I am going to assume that you already have installed your webcam and can use it within windows with the software it came with.

I am also going to assume you are using yahoo messenger 10.

To activate your webcam in Yahoo! Messenger 10 in the top menu click Messenger, then from there select My WebCam.

Read the warning that should pop up, click OK and then select your speed preference and click OK.
Another box should come up showing your webcam view. It will monitor how many users are watching yor webcam.
