If you follow these instructions it will work as it doesn't matter what MSN messenger version you are using.

See section C. Windows Live Messenger 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 am trying to use my yahoo.es account on windows live


No, you cannot use Yahoo in place of Windows Live. They are independent and so they have different programs eg. Yahoo! Messenger for yahoo and Window Messenger for Windows Live. Even if you would like to access both of them in one program, you cannot access them together, eg. You cannot view Yahoo Mails from Windows Live Mail and vise versa. But there's a way that you can add multiple accounts in Microsoft Outlook or Windows Live Mail. When I say this, I don't mean you are actually accessing Yahoo from Windows Live or vise versa but you can access yahoo mails from Windows Live Mail or Microsoft Outlook. Please follow this LINK, hopefully that will help you get some idea about how to set up and how it works.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I cannot view my friend, he has a web cam I do not, but I can't figure out how to do it. Do I need to download the new yaho, I am trying to view him through windows live, h has a yahoo addy also


There are many inconsistencies between Yahoo! IM and Windows Live. Basically, you can connect to members of each, but the status may not update correctly and other features like web page sharing may not work. My recommendation is if most of your friends are on Yahoo! IM, then switch to Yahoo! IM. Lastest is version 9. Version 10 is in beta.

Ive had an older version of messenger for mac. one day it told me i couldnt use this version so i installed version 3 beta (178870) from yahoo for mac OS and it i used it no problem a few times... suddenly...


The new beta is so buggy that I have stopped using it at all.

Try using Adium. It does Yahoo, AIM, MSN and others all in one, plus it's free.

Acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger


Make sure all of your drivers are updated for the webcam and the sound card. To check the drivers go to the manufacturer's websites for each of these products. Also, make sure your yahoo messenger is updated and make sure that the Windows Live Essentials is updated to latest version. If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.
