"SERVER IS BUSY, TRY AGAIN IN A FEW MINUTES" Broadcasting problem

How can i broadcast my webcam in yahoo chat, It always say "SERVER IS BUSY, Try AGAIN LATER"

I have fixed YM preferences, such as no proxies, connections and other options in yahoo messenger but still i get this "SERVER is BUSY" i hate it, i cant even accept/view webcam of other people. My camera is fine when i am using it offline (A4 tech camera). I am running Windows XP SP 2, with VISTA transformation look. I have Globe wireless internet connection which is running good. Sometimes the camera works if i am patient in clicking many times and waiting till it connects, but most of the time it is "SERVER is BUSY" which makes the hell out of it. Please help anyone expert enough to solve this. thanks guys!

I have encountered this problem many times when using yahoo messenger, a simple fix to it is to use a different yahoo messenger screen name, i believe it happens when you enter chat rooms alot and invite people to your webcam and turn it off and on alot while being in a chat room, causes the cam to overload so to speak. So when you get that pesky "Server is busy, try again in a few minutes blah blah blah" thats your cue to sign off and sign onto another screen name and your webcam will work 100%. I hope this helps.

How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

I have a C120 webcam used with Yahoo Messenger (my PC has XP/AVG) but I cannot show cam-pic AND chat at same time. When cam is 'broadcasting' there is no cursor in 'chat'area and when I click mouse on chat...


I do not think the cam stops broadcasting - it is under the chat page
Make this setting from the 'Webcam' menu on the top frame of your image

Click 'Webcam' select 'Always on top'
As it says the webcam image will now be visible while chatting - you can 'drag and drop' the image to a convenient location by grabbing the top border

My webcam cannot broadcast. Everytime I activate it, I get the message ''The server is busy. Close the window and try again later.''


I haven't seen that message since I was on dial-up connection, using msn and yahoo messenger - so I think you have a resource problem and operating below the bandwidth for webcam broadcasts.
Since upgrading to broadband 3 years ago its been OK.

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

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamfix.html

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.

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstatestcamie.html

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

Server busy, close the window and try again later


Yahoo software is not noted for its generosity regarding webcams
You need to track what is happening during transmission. From the webcam frame menu click 'webcam' click 'statistics' from here you can see your frames per second. Do a few tests while broadcasting adjusting the slider (click 'file' click 'preferences') to improve quality ( at the expense of speed). If the fps drops to 0.0 your picture will be frozen.
You can also adjust your camera settings from here
Depending on your resources - internet speed - memory etc, will dictate the fps. The object of the exercise is to achieve maximum quality with a reasonable fps. Personally, I found the fps very erratic and about 0.0 to 3.0 with later mods the highest I could achieve was a modest 0.0 to 6.0 you may do better.
carry out the Yahoo mod to the registry
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamfix.html
Download the microsoft software
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstatestcamie.html
The webcam should now be controlled by VFM ( seen at the bottom of the statistics window)
Finally do your tests again, I transmit my image as 'small' ( 'webcam' > 'image size' ) and the contacts use 'Zoom' > '200%' to restore. this is to preserve what little resources I have.

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.

Webcam not connecting to yahoo messenger


!st, let me explain the problem more clearer, then I'll explain the solution.
Problem) My camera worked fine. Even when logging on to Yahoo messenger, i could still veiw myself when chatting. But when I clicked on the "broadcast" button, the "idle" status would change to "connecting" for a few seconds. Then the the following message would pop up, " The server is busy, Please close this window & try again in a few minutes".
Solution) In Yahoo messenger, click on "Messenger", scroll down & click on "preferences". In Category:, click on "connection". Make sure that "no proxies" is selected.
