set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.

and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".

Can't make a video E-mail call/web chat


Gmail helps you stay in touch in a variety of ways. Its offerings range from its basic function email to more advanced features such as phone calls and video chatting. To send an email or chat via text on Gmail, you don't need to do anything more than create an account. Before you can start video chatting with your Gmail contacts, however, you must install the required software.

Visit the Google Voice installation page (link below). http://www.google.com/chat/video Click the blue "Install voice and video chat" button. When the process is complete, you see a page congratulating you on installing Google voice and video chat. Click the "Gmail" link on this page to go to your Gmail account. Hover your mouse over an online Gmail contact in your contact list. Click "Chat" in the list that appears. This opens a chat with the contact in question in the lower right corner of your Gmail screen. Click the small video camera icon within the chat window to initiate a video chat. Before the chat begins, your contact must accept the video call. You and the person you're calling must have webcams. Most modern laptops come with built-in webcams, and peripheral webcams are available at computer stores.

I want to chat with my sister using computer with logitech web cam, but unfortunately I cant see her and she cant see me.


What software you use for chatting? Yahoo/Skype/MSN?

Most of the Chat softwares, have an option where you go and choose the hardware to capture the videos from. Probably, something might be wrong there!

I have downloaded Google talk and Google talk plug in -- still I am not able to chat on video -- what is the solution


Welcome to FixYa
Hello,
Google talk Video Chat is Possible through Web browser like Chrome,Explorer .Not Possible in Messenger Software as yet.You have to Download Video Codec to Start Video chat in Google talk and Sign in to G mail account.
Here's what you'll need to get started:
  • Download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
  • Sign in to Gmail.
  • In the Chat section of your Gmail, select the contact you want to call. If they have a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to them; just click Video & more.
If your friend doesn't have a camera next to their name in your chat list, you can invite them to download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in from the Video & more menu in a chat window. Even if your friend doesn't have a video camera, you can still have a voice chat or a 1-way video chat.

Do you use yahoo messenger to chat? If your are using yahoo messenger, while chatting, look be-nit the chat box, you would see a web cam symbol, click it and you will see a warning box pop out. Click OK and your web cam will automatically be activated.

You would have to wait a little while for the web cam to show, because it has to load. Loading time depends solely on your computer and internet connection speed.

Best wishes.

Web cam not streaming


what chat are you using?
have you used your webcam for this chat before?
sounds like the config in the chat program is wrong and it's not loading your cam.
try opening the options in your chat program and check the camera settings, it may just be a box that isn;t checked.
if it works on your computer it should work in a chat if it's config'd right

You need to find a video chat program that you are comfortable with. Most of the major Instant Messenger programs have been adding video chat to their features over the last couple of years. Check this link for a good summary of current products and some excellent advice and reviews. http://video-chat-im-software-review.toptenreviews.com/ They favour windows live messenger - just be sure that whichever program you choose will support your camera, and will work on your PC. If you need help using the software, please ask again once you have decided which to use and we can try to help, but the majority of them are reasonably easy to set up and use. Hope this helps :)
