I cant take a picture with my bisoncam what do i do/ when people cal me i can see them but they cant see me


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 do have a logitech webcam,but dont have a software to install.where do i get a free software to download?here's my logitech M/N :V-UAM27


Hi,


Here is the things you have to do:

1. Download QuickCam 8.4.8 with driver for WinXP.


2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.

3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder.
Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select Extract to qc848enuoption.

4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.

5. An Driver Software Installationã icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Add Hardware Wizardã¢ï¿½ï¿½ dialog window will appear.

Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.

6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.

7. Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/435/3779&hub=1&cl=roeu,en?section=downloads&bit=&osid=1

8. Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.
