Sometimes you can select if it is a 2 way video chat or just a receive (they cant see you) Also check and see if the chat client is configured to use the webcam as its default video device.

How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

Dont know what to go to to use the web cam


Can you elaborate on your question? Like what computer are you using and what application you want to use your cam with?........there are an example you can try it.
use web cam for DELL laptop-
Many IM clients allow Webcam support, such as AIM, Y! IM, Windows Live Messenger, and Skype. However, I'd recommend either AIM or Skype since Windows Live and Y! IM are pretty bad (slowed down my Dell; freezes/crashes on start). Plus, you can also use Skype as a phone on your computer. The only downside is that you have to pay a subscription for voicemail ($10/mo.) and it isn't available in all areas.

However, the choice is yours. Make sure you have all your drivers installed (if you can't get the built-in webcam to work, look for a driver on the internet) and test it. It can get really laggy on slow connections and it eats up bandwidth, so watch it. I hope that helps.

Good luck!

HI, i have a built in web cam on my laptop, How do I install the program so that it can work?


the drivers for built in cams are usually provided with the laptop. if not, then u can go to the laptop website and find the driver by entering ur laptop model no.
still not possible, download driver genius and let it search the driver for you. :)

I dont understand how to use my logutech clicksmart 420 ad an webcam


the web cam should have a driver to allow it to communicate with the PC ....after the driver ( the CD from the seller ) was installed ..just plug the camera ...and let the PC find it ..and all
after is proper installed and all the things are OK ...the main use for it is to make video audio calls in MSN messenger ...or Yahoo messenger Skype ...etc
all you have to do is to click the camera button from the conversation window ...and the other person receives an info for your intention ...in that moment you already see yourself in a window
second ...you can use it to make capture like a picture or a/v movies ...using the AM cap feature from the start menu ...( all programs)

I have no clue how get my Jazz Elite HDV178 camera/camcorder to work as a web cam. can someone please eplain it to me??? thank you.


Make sure the software that came with the camera is intalled. Conect the camera to your computer (via USB the (batteries are not required to be in the camera when you do this)) press the button above the USB. On a pc in the bottom right corner will say "installing new device" ... load up "Showbiz DVD 2" (Start, all programs, Arcsoft showbiz dvd2, showbiz DVD 2.) select “capture from device”. It will show a live image off the camera. If you want to use the camera on an instant messaging service (I use windows live messenger 8.5) close Showbiz. Open instant messenger. Once loaded select Menu, tools, webcam settings. There you can adust settings like the brightness. Then if you want others to know that you have a web cam click on your display name, options, personal. At the bottom of this tam there is a tick box makes sure that this is ticked. Hope this helps
