Please make sure that your web cam is not been in use by any other messenger or its in use.

If the web cam is open or being used by any other messenger then it will not work on other platform.

Why does my microsoft lifecam vx-3000 freeze everytime I try to use it on Yahoo? The microphone works fine, but once I try to turn on the camera, it freezes after about 2 seconds.

You should check that the webcam ports for the Yahoo messenger are open on your firewall and router, and make sure the Yahoo messenger application is allowed to access those ports (defined as an exception in your firewall).
More details are available in this webcam driver troubleshooting article.

My web cam is not show video when i start it shows only blank

Use Your Webcam in Yahoo Messenger Step1Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already (see Resources below). Step2Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting. Step3Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend. Step4Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. Step5Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Step6Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. Step7Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed.
