Dont know how to activate the webcam


The web cam works when you are online in YM or some other chat room. Look to the top of the YM when in chat mood. You will see "Invite to Web Cam" click on this and your cam should automaticly open

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

Webcam doesn't work with yahoo messenger


There is a simple solution to this kind of issue but I can't figure why. Here it is:
If you are using YM and having issue with webcam, try this:

open up a new account with YM then try access your webcam in the YM Setup. Let me know if this works.

Yahoo messenger keep loging me off


after logging in ym, do you go to chatrooms? there are so-called yahoo booters that boots your ym when you join a certain chatroom.

Make sure messenger is off, then go to regedit then open up HKEY CURRENT USER then open up SOFTWARE then open up MICROSOFT then open up WINDOWS then open up CURRENT VERSION then click on Internet Settings but dont open it just click on it then go half way down the list to find PROXY ENABLE,PROXY SERVER,PROXY OVERRIDE then click on PROXY ENABLE click modify binary and change from 0x00000000 (1) to 0x00000000 (0) then delete PROXY SERVER and PROXY OVERRIDE and there you go sign into messenger this has worked perfect for me hope it does for you.

or

It's either one of the two:

- Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.

- Your connection preferences are wrong:
Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option

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.
