Pay particular attention to the Compatibility paragraph
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, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

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

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

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.

My Acer Aspire 5732Z's Crystal Eye webcam wont work online or on Skype, Messenger, etc. When I was cleaning out my laptop, (deleting unwanted programs) I may have deleted something that had to do with...


You need to reinstall your Web cam's drivers.
If you have the drivers on a cd, reinstall them,
if you dont have them, visit Acer's website, www.acer.com and go to the "Drivers and Support" page, enter your laptop model and the operating system you are using, then download the web cam drivers (Acer Crystal Eye) and install.
That should solve your problem.

Thank you for using Fixya,

If your sound is working everywhere but not in the webcam, check the settings of your webcam to see if microphone is disabled. Reinstall microsoft life cam software if you cannot make it working. If you don't have the software, go here to download it

I accidentally deleted my toshiba c655 webcam and i tried to reinstall it but it doesnt work.can you please help me.


First off it would be hard to delete a webcam. Once the software was installed at least the drivers anyhow but if i were you i would goto control panel to add remove programs and remove all web-cam software. Then reinstall it then plug it in. More then likely you cant reinstall untill you get rid of the trash left behind on the first one,

I just installed my Logitech Webcam C120m and it has white lines all over the picture. I reinstalled everything and it still has the white lines.


You could try twisting the lens if it twists. My webcams twist to adjust the picture. It's just a suggestion i don't know if that will work or not. If i helped you please leave me a rating.

Camera dont work on Yahoo Messenger


Please make sure that your web cam is not been in use by any other messenger or its in use.

If the web cam is open or being used by any other messenger then it will not work on other platform.

Since few days there is some issue with yahoo messenger's audio and video.
