This will depend on which messenger program you are using ?
Skype Double-click the "Skype" icon on your desktop and log in with your username and password. Click "Tools" at the top of the screen, and then click "Options." Click "Video" in the dropdown menu. The blue icon on the left will display your video options. Check "Enable Skype Video." You'll now have access to Skype video settings. Set up your webcam connection. It should already be connected to your computer with drivers installed. Select the webcam from the dropdown list and test it again to make sure it works. Set your video call preferences below. You can have video start automatically if you check--what else?--"Start my video automatically." Click "Save" in the bottom right to save your settings. To make a video call, click the video button on your contact list or click "Start Video" once you are already in a call. MSN Messenger Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture. Click the "Webcam" icon. Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to. Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin. Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again. Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer. b> Show or Hide Your Webcam b> Open MSN Messenger on your computer. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list. Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse. Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Yahoo The Internet has made it possible for people thousands of miles apart to communicate in real time without having to rely on making long distance phone calls. Emailing and instant messaging are fantastic tools, but with broadband Internet access it's now possible to see one another, too. If you have a webcam, you're ready to use video conferencing with friends and family around the globe. Yahoo Messenger is the perfect place to get started.

Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already. Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting. Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend. Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed. Hope this helps

I set up my web cam and i hear my sister when she talks but she cant hear me


well the first thing that you got to check is that if the web-cam has an inbuilt mic to it
If there is no mic then you will have to attach a seperate mic/headset for voice
Also check if its USB port or normal Audio/Video output...if it had audio/video cable then you will have to attach both the cable to the correct port in the Cabinet
If it has USB output cable with inbuilt mic then try to unistall and reinstall the driver software and attach the the webcam only after installing the drivers

I have an Amcap webcam and cannot get it to work with Skype. I can see and hear my friend but she can only hear me? Any suggestions before I buy another?


Do not be in a hurry to buy another webcam. Firstly, go to Control Panel->Add Remove programs. Here you will find your camera listed. If not then install the webcam and then find it here. Start Skype and go to Tools->Options->Video. Here specify your webcam as the default camera and save. Now when you start to talk to anyone you will get 2 choices. Call and Video Call. If you start Video Call your camera will take about 30 seconds to start and commence sending your live video, whether the other part has a webcam or not.
If there is no Webcam displayed in Add Remove Programs then you must first install the drivers without the webcam attached to the PC. reboot and then attach the webcam. Allow Windows to detect the camera and load its drivers. You will get a msg in the right bottom corner of the screen saying "Your new HW has been installed and it is ready to be used.". Now configure Skype as above and start video Calling.

Unable to send my video when talking to anybody


I would need more details (type of webcam, operational system and skype version) to get a better solution, but there are some basic steps:

1- Make sure that the driver for your camera is the latest release - for that check on the webcam's manufacturer website;

2- Go to Skype, Click on tools > options > video settings and see if the field "Select Webcam" has the one that you're trying to use. If not, select it and see if your image appears.

3- Also make sure that you got the last skype version.
