If I will be using my web cam I have this error message. Error 502 - Bad Request The server could not resolve your request for uri:...

There's no problem with your webcam.Its the yahoo messenger error. I recommend you reinstall the yahoo messenger and reconfigure the webcam to yahoo messenger. By the way your error is an application error online when yahoo messenger cannot process your request online because of a broken server/heavy traffic via internet.

Hi, you can uninstall/ reinstall the yahoo messenger instead of other people getting a sign on error message. I have experienced that same problem years back and I guarantee that once you change your mail ID, other people cannot access yahoo messenger on your computer...

Your computer is not connected to the network when cam talk

In order to use the video call feature both parties have to be in Yahoo Messenger 10.
If you both have Yahoo you can use the webcam
If you are cross chatting - eg Messenger X MSN, only basic IM will be available

Why doesn't my work wok properly?

The problem could be the speed of the internet and also could be the computers memory. Try to reduce the size of the web cam window and also the speed and drop down the quality in the messenger. Try to use only messenger when using web cam not other programs. If this doesn't work try to reinstalling the yahoo messenger.
