Hi. You have to install the driver that comes with the webcam, and after that is easy. In messenger just select webcam button(top left side of the windows where you are conversating ) and that should be all

Hi, my name is jullie and i have an acer extensa5620 the webcam on it doesn't work in yahoo messenger for some reason, but it does work in msn. I though it was a matter of me not installing yahoo properly,...


you have to go into the "macromedia flash" settings and "allow" the webam to be used by yahoo messenger, whilst in yahoo messenger itself.
If that doesn't work have a look at the webcams actual software

hope this helps

You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
