How do i use my web cam on msn on my aspire one netbook?


Here are the steps to use web cam on MSM:-
Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture.
Click the "Webcam" icon.
Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer.

Show or Hide Your Webcam
Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Good luck, do rate the solution if got help

When am on msn live the cam does not work


Finally! SOLVED!
i searched internet and tried everything from firewall - router - reinstalling windows but NOTHING helped..
i don't know if this will solve problems of all other people.. but try this..
the short version >>>> i created a new msn live id.. and it worked from there...
long version >>>>> i registered for the msn id back in 2001 and my country was set to "Pakistan"
as u can see (if u have the same problem) u can't view as many advertisements in the main Msn Messenger window and Msn Chat window.. i.e. a multi-tabbed bar sitting in the left side of main msn window and one big advertisment banner below..
now as you are trying to have a Video chat.... ur window will say "Webcam Sponsored By.. " but as ur location is set to a country or area for which there are no advertisments or sponsors... You Are Stuck!
Stupid... isn't it?
so. just login to your hotmail/msn live id online >> goto options >> under "manage your account" click on "View and edit your personal information" ..... then on the right side under "Common Tasks" click on "Edit Your Registered Information"
change your country's location to the current one.. OR even if it's right.. just use uk, america, australia emotion-4.gif (also give other information like state/postal code/city etc) >> because they won't allow u to view the webcam without advertisements... (which by the way, are from your region)
now... wonder why msn gives you Free 5 GB space ? emotion-2.gif

Webcam problems


1. Please check my computer, you should be having a camera icon available.
2. once you are connected to yahoo or MSN, you may start the web cam from the chat software itself
3. to enable the webcam chat, initiate the chat and then click on the camera symbol which is available on the messenger window.
4. if you do not have the icon in my computer please re-install the drivers.

Acer's built in webcam


Take your laptop to your local computer repair shop, as it will take too long to explain a solution.
Good Luck.

Web Cam


mmm if the cammera works... just install windows live messenger and add a contact, then open a chat windows with that contact by double clicking on that contact in the list... and just next to the small picture of that contact and of your picture too you will see a little webcam icon... just click, try right or left button on that icon and choose the option, start a video chat, or invite or ask for videochat... i dont remember exactly the line. If you start a videochat from your icon, you will first see your camera because you are asking the other to chat on cam then the other hast to accept first and only then you will be able to see. So the contact must be online and have a camera for you to see, otherwise the can see you.

If this does not work, you might have a problem with your camera.
Msn has a wizard helper that will guide you to config your cam if is is working but first try what I wrote before.
