Re: problem to connect with quick cam 8.4.6 (windows)

See section B. Yahoo, in the info below.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

My web cam is not attach my pc so what i do cam no vfo 330

Follow these steps :

Get your webcam.
Now Connect USB via Webcam.Then via PC.
Now you will then have a setup popup so if you have a popup block un block it now and restart your computer.
When computer it restarted you will do the setup. If the setup doesn't come up then check the connection and restart computer
Then when setup is completed then make sure your web cam is up on your computer very stedy.Then do a test before you do a conversation. This is usually to see if you would need any extra lighting or not.
Now enjoy webcam.I would recommend to keep your web cam connected so you wouldn't have to go though this again but if you cant then just reconnect and usually you would be ok.

Split cam is not showing video i connect to yahoo and i just get a black screen

make sure that you setting up your webcam on your yahoo messenger properly, this problems are not setup properly on YM.
Go to Preferences on your Yahoo Messenger, see it there that your webcam is currently default to use on the system, and if not, just to select your Creative Labs Live Cam.
Or maybe you didn't install yet your nice cam. You have to setup that before you use all your chat messenger program. Good luck!
