You can only video chat if both parties have version 10
Check your set up
Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel. Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Unable to chat on Yahoo messenger.. I hear no sound when a person calls me.. Nor can i call them.. This problem happened after i re-installed windows XP. Sound from my speakers is okay.


If you have, for instance, Yahoo Messenger 10 India - it won't work because this version doesn't have any voice facility. Try to update your Yahoo Messenger version to the latest (Yahoo Messenger 10 US). If this won't work, contact Y! for help.

My friend just downloaded yahoo messenger for the first time. We can't voice chat...it is grayed out. What can we do to solve this as we did this so we COULD voice chat.


There are 2 things that may be wrong. One is that you may have different versions of Yahoo Messenger. Make sure you both have installed the latest stable version of Yahoo Messenger 10. If you both have that, then it means she does not have a microphone or the microphone is not connected properly to th computer. Make sure the microphone is in the jack that is color labeled pink.

If they are grayed out it probably means the person you are chatting with are not chatting from Yahoo Messenger 10
Both parties have to be in version 10 in order to use the video feature.

Voice chat not working


It's clear that you are not using the correct version of Yahoo messenger, some version like Indian version doesn't support voice chat, but US version do. You can download the US version from this link http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/win/ But firstly you need to uninstall the installed version so that it'll not overwrite or retain the old version. Good luck.

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.
