My webcam cannot broadcast. Everytime I activate it, I get the message ''The server is busy. Close the window and try again later.''


I haven't seen that message since I was on dial-up connection, using msn and yahoo messenger - so I think you have a resource problem and operating below the bandwidth for webcam broadcasts.
Since upgrading to broadband 3 years ago its been OK.

Problem on cam


I used to get this when I was on dial-up but never since going broadband - so the bandwidth may be fragile.
You need to interrogate what is happening when the webcam is transmitting by opening the webcam menu on the webcam frame and click "statistics" Its best to transmit the "small" image and use the zoom 200% when established ( same as sending large photos by email ) - if I go for speed rather than quality on the slider I can achieve 5-6 frames per second ( small size) but I normally transmit about 1-2 f/s.
I have my webcam under VFW (video for windows) control as I used to get freeze problems. This involves a registry change - detailed in Messenger help

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamfix.html

You can tell when its under VFW control because VFW will be on the bottom of the Statistics box. You may need a little bit of software to make it work, if like me you do not have Directx on your pc - if so download the software featured here.

Dont worry about using the proxy server in "Connections" - Use it when you have to - I had to use it today to make my my webcam work - I also had to increase my virtual memory but that was as a result of error messages

Server busy, close the window and try again later


Yahoo software is not noted for its generosity regarding webcams
You need to track what is happening during transmission. From the webcam frame menu click 'webcam' click 'statistics' from here you can see your frames per second. Do a few tests while broadcasting adjusting the slider (click 'file' click 'preferences') to improve quality ( at the expense of speed). If the fps drops to 0.0 your picture will be frozen.
You can also adjust your camera settings from here
Depending on your resources - internet speed - memory etc, will dictate the fps. The object of the exercise is to achieve maximum quality with a reasonable fps. Personally, I found the fps very erratic and about 0.0 to 3.0 with later mods the highest I could achieve was a modest 0.0 to 6.0 you may do better.
carry out the Yahoo mod to the registry
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamfix.html
Download the microsoft software
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstatestcamie.html
The webcam should now be controlled by VFM ( seen at the bottom of the statistics window)
Finally do your tests again, I transmit my image as 'small' ( 'webcam' > 'image size' ) and the contacts use 'Zoom' > '200%' to restore. this is to preserve what little resources I have.

Web cam set-up


Once your webcam software is loaded and working, in most cases the software loaded will provide some kind of display function allowing you to know that the software is working, then load up YM and under the Messenger tab, you will find ' MY WEBCAM '. Select ' My webcam ' and you should start seeing your display while using YM, that is the same display that others will see to whom you give allowance to see your webcam. I.E. you have to personally give each person permission to see your webcam. Until you know more about YM from personally using it and experiencing it, that is all I should say, but I will add one more tidbit. YM 9.0 beta is what I use and I'm quite happy with it as I have better control of the stealth function with it did I had with YM 8.0. Consider that when installing YM

Webcam not connecting to yahoo messenger


!st, let me explain the problem more clearer, then I'll explain the solution.
Problem) My camera worked fine. Even when logging on to Yahoo messenger, i could still veiw myself when chatting. But when I clicked on the "broadcast" button, the "idle" status would change to "connecting" for a few seconds. Then the the following message would pop up, " The server is busy, Please close this window & try again in a few minutes".
Solution) In Yahoo messenger, click on "Messenger", scroll down & click on "preferences". In Category:, click on "connection". Make sure that "no proxies" is selected.
