See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

I forgot my skype passwod


Skype allows users to make free calls to computers anywhere in the world and make international phone calls on the cheap. To call, all users need is a working username and password. But nothing will disconnect your international calling plans faster than a forgotten Skype password. Without a working password, users cannot access Skype services. While Skype does not allow users to retrieve an old password, it allows users to reset their account passwords to remedy the problem.

1. Navigate to the Skype home page.

2. Click "Sign In."

3. Click the "Forgotten your password?" option under the Password box.

4. Type the email address you used to register with Skype into the box. Click "Get Password."

5. Check your email. Skype will send you an email with a link and a code to reset your password. Click the link in the email to access the password reset page.

6. Choose your Skype account from the list. Enter a new password. Confirm the new password by typing it again in the next box. Click "Change password and sign me in."

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

I cannot access skype on my computer. I am asked for my account name and password which I have never had to use before. What do i have to do?


If you have used skype before, then you should propably have an account name and password. You can search for those in your registered to Skype email. You cannot use skype without a registered account, which needs a registered email to create.

Hi there...i have one skype account with name ,, harsanmarius,, and pasword used to be 201976 all my life , but from 1 weak somebody take it from me , my exboyfriend ....and he change pasword ...can i have...


The only problem here is if your ex-boyfriend also managed to changed the email address registered on your skype. If not, launch the Skype application, and click forgot password. If you still have access to the email registered to this Skype account, then you will be receiving the instruction in your email plus a temporary code to change your password.

Forgot my pasword


If you have forgotten your password, the only way to access your Skype account again is to have a new password code sent to the email address you used when you registered with Skype.
After you request a new password code (this website: https://secure.skype.com/account/password-reset-request), you will receive an email containing a link to Skype's secure website and a code to change your password. The code will be valid for 6 hours from the time of generation. If you do not use it within this timeframe, you will have to request another one.

Lost skype pw and email address


Hi,

If you have forgotten your password then the only way to access your Skype account again is to have a new password token sent to the email address you used to originally register with Skype.
If you entered an email address when you registered, you can request a new password token by following the password recovery flow.
You will receive an email containing a link to our secure website and a token to change your password.
The token will be valid for 6 hours from the time of generation. If you do not use it within this timeframe, you will have to request another one.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks.

Logitech internet handset "UNAVAILABLE" error


Mine was working fine at one point. I had been using it the night before without issue. However later on when I went to make a call the next day the handset said Disconnected.

Any Skype functions said "Unavailable". Rebooting the PC, Restarting the Headset Software and Skype didn't fix the issue.

The fix for mine was to go into "Menu" then "System" on the Handset and do a reset. Soon as it was done, the Skype info popped backup on the handset and it was fixed.

For those who haven't changed it, the default PIN on these handsets is 0000 <-- Zero's
