Other persons webcam freezes while chatting on Yahoo Messenger

When using our webcams in Yahoo Messenger, my friends webcam always freezes up after about a minute. Mine doesn't. My friends webcam works just fine while talking to other people, just freezes when talking to me. How can we fix this?

    Well when I'm talking to my boyfriend and we are both on the webcam together, my webcam freezes and stops working. I have to completely close down yahoo messenger or the program with not respond period. I know it nothing wrong with my computer or drivers because I already checked and made sure. Also this is a brand new computer. If anyone has any answer on how to fix this issue please post a solution.

How to talk to my friends using the webcam?


Make sure you're using the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. Secondly, you'll see a clickable option named "Start My Webcam." After that, it will begin loading your webcam. Next, you'll see a little camera icon that appears in the chat window when you're talking with your friend(s). Click on the contact from your contact list, then click "Invite to View My Webcam." This will open a new IM window with your webcam live. Be sure to click "View Webcam" link while talking to others in the IM so you can see their webcams!

*Tip: You can use the "Super Webcam" mode to receive high quality video and imagery feed in your webcam chat!


Hope this helps!

I cannot find the "video and voice set up" in yahoo messenger that's why i cannot use my cyberlinkyoucam as my webcam


Yahoo! Messenger offers voice services, such as PC-to-PC, PC-to-cell or PC-to-landline calling. You can also participate in chat rooms and use the voice chat feature instead of typing. However, slow connection speeds or improper settings can interfere with voice activation in Yahoo! Messenger.


Instructions
  1. Step 1 Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
  2. Step 2 Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
  3. Step 3 Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
  4. Step 4 Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
  5. Step 5 Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.

I tried to view my friends webcam on yahoo messenger and she tried to view mine but it said that she had to give me permission to view her webcam and neither one of us know how to give permission to view...


There is option somewher in your messenger
that asks you to give the other person permission.
Could possibly be somewhere in the chat box when you open that.
I don't go on chat so I can't tell you exactly where but it is there.
Open your chat box and try in there first.Should say tools video or options.
Hope this helps.
