You need to make sure your webcam is connected to your PC and has power. What is it built into, your monitor? As you posted this in PC Desktops > Generic problem for all PC Desktops. Tell us about your PC and Web cam?

    HEY,
    I didn't deserve the abuse rating you issued me! I was sincerely trying to help you and you rate my honest attempt as "Abuse"? That's not RIGHT!

How do i connect my web cam to my yahoo messinger


I am going to assume that you already have installed your webcam and can use it within windows with the software it came with.

I am also going to assume you are using yahoo messenger 10.

To activate your webcam in Yahoo! Messenger 10 in the top menu click Messenger, then from there select My WebCam.

Read the warning that should pop up, click OK and then select your speed preference and click OK.
Another box should come up showing your webcam view. It will monitor how many users are watching yor webcam.

Can't use the built in cam for Yahoo Messenger.


Some webcams have this problem in combination with Yahoo.
I was able to fix this by using a program called SplitCam. I allows for webcam sharing, but it also is compatible with most webcams. You can install it and then use that as the video source in Yahoo.
I found a nice description about using SplitCam for this.

Hope it works for you.

Yahoo Messinger takes 5 minutes to open


I don't know the cause of the problem, but I do no that yahoo are having problems at the moment, even emails sent to yahoo adresses are being sent back (they are to me anyway). I know it is a big drag, but you can only keep trying until they have resolved the issues themselves
