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.

Problem on cam

I used to get this when I was on dial-up but never since going broadband - so the bandwidth may be fragile.
You need to interrogate what is happening when the webcam is transmitting by opening the webcam menu on the webcam frame and click "statistics" Its best to transmit the "small" image and use the zoom 200% when established ( same as sending large photos by email ) - if I go for speed rather than quality on the slider I can achieve 5-6 frames per second ( small size) but I normally transmit about 1-2 f/s.
I have my webcam under VFW (video for windows) control as I used to get freeze problems. This involves a registry change - detailed in Messenger help

You can tell when its under VFW control because VFW will be on the bottom of the Statistics box. You may need a little bit of software to make it work, if like me you do not have Directx on your pc - if so download the software featured here.

Dont worry about using the proxy server in "Connections" - Use it when you have to - I had to use it today to make my my webcam work - I also had to increase my virtual memory but that was as a result of error messages

I suggest that you uninstall the software of that cam first. Find it in the Remove/Install Programs then remove. Next go to Program Files and find the installation folder, delete it. Then download this program:

and install it
