Once you have your webcam working outside of Yahoo Messenger you have to configure it to messenger.
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo has the most difficult software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) messenger > preferences > connection - select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > apply > ok

TESTING
> messenger > my webcam - warning panel will come on click 'ok' and your webcam will launch.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
>messenger > preferences > webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > actions > 'invite to view my webcam' this will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'accept' - they will see you ( can check status on bottom left of webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
There is a shortcut ( cam picture ) in the toolbar and one down by your pic as well but these do not always work
your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

YAHOO SPECIFICATION
To find out what the requirements are for messenger webcams, check out the following.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamreq.html
open messenger > messenger > preferences > calling and audio - make sure your default mic and speakers are shown in the boxes
( the mic and speaker you want to use in messenger.) run through "call up assistant" > apply >ok

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.

  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.

  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.

What will i do to have voice in yahoo! messenger?


Hi,
Actually yahoo messenger supports voice communication. Its enabled by default. You just need a Headset (Headphones and a Microphone). And you have to have Sound Drives installed and functioning.
With one exception, you can do voice communication. You cannot make Phone calls without buying credits. And Yahoo has limited support to Phone networks.
However you can do voice communication including Video (Videoconferencing) between two or More Computers. Its totally free of charge. You have to have a web cam in order to send your Webcam Live Videos.
You can adjust these setting after signing in to Yahoo Messenger. Go to Messenger and then Preferences. From there, you can adjust Voice and Video, Webcam etc.
