What is your operating system? If you facing difficulty getting voice in yahoo, first thing you will have to check is your net speed. If the net speed is slower, you may face difficulty getting yahoo voice. Also try closing all other applications which is related to internet connection. At last if you are using XP, try patching yacscom.dll. That fixes yahoo voice issue. Let us know the rest. Thanks.
Usually if you have a computer installed with OEM OS, it will come with some camera software that ay be used for Video conferencing. However, you may use other Video conferencing applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Skype, GTalk for the same. It is required to download and install these applications in the computer and configure the same to start the video conferencing.
For example, I below is the link to download the Yahoo Messenger applications along with the Video tutorial.
You have to download the latest version of yahoo messenger same with your friend(s) on their official yahoo website. Make it sure that your webcam is already installed the driver before using it. It happens all the times that when video chatting had always facing a problem due to incompatibility issue.For better video chatting do not rely on wireless connection, it is recommended that you must used line connection not a wireless connection. Have a good
bad internet connection is the reason why there is disconnect interruption while chatting . Just refresh your router internet and refresh your computer by restarting first before chatting and never open your yahoo messenger if you are not using. It will idle for quite sometimes.
If you are working with a PC that has Windows XP, probably if the YM don't successfully install perhaps you need an XP Pack2 OS. The old version of the Yahoo Messenger will best fit the older Windows Professional. If you need to upgrade yahoo, format your computer with XP P2 or other higher versions like Win8, Win Vista etc.
Vista is the key as its looking for the administrator to complete the installation You need the following OS to support Messenger Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 If that is not an issue read on.
The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall software. Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading. If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder. If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall. Check Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.
If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.
Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times.
Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
