See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below
to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they
have their computer setup properly.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they
are to be used with. Just installing the camera on
your computer does not set it up to broadcast on
messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in
order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/
windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Setting
and set the Microphone and Speakers to the
computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up
and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly.
Your friends and Family will now be able to see and
hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the
Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio
Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue
writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the
view by clicking on the square on top left next to the
red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the
right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click
on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on "
"Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting"
and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function
properly so you can chat and see family or friends
you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you

installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are

Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings,
please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly
below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you
are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a
message will display: You must disconnect the
current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like
to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear
to help you verify that your camera, speakers and
microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message
will display: Would you like to first check your audio
and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to
help you verify that your camera, speakers and
microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed,
or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards)
when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and
video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Frist let me say i donot have any more money i just purphase this webcam with the money i had this easycam tm 98063 will not work on my laptop so can you please help me my window is 7window


Hi sexydaisy196,

I will try and help you but unfortunately 'will not work on my laptop' could mean lots of different things from installation problems to viewing problems so I will cover both for you.

Firstly I am going to go over installation in case your problem is installation then I'll move on to video capture which is how you will see the images that your webcam captures..

INSTALLATION
To install your camera, if Windows 7 does not recognize the camera then you will need to find an appropriate driver. To do this you could try these steps.

1. With the Webcam plugged in, try and do a manual Windows Update. By doing this windows may find the driver for your camera and install it for you.

2. If Windows update didn't find the driver then the following link will take you to a website that I think has the driver you need. Notice it also has a pdf you can download so you can get the original instruction manual.

The link is:
http://www.jascoproducts.com/support/software-downloads-win7.asp


Video Capture
To see anything from your webcam you are going to need an application that captures video images. As you have Windows 7 and if you haven't done already, you can download Windows Live Essentials. Included in this package is Messenger and Windows Movie Maker. Messenger enables you to use your Webcam for Video Chat and Windows Movie Maker has a Webcam Capture button so that you can make a movie using your webcam.
To get Windows Live Essentials just follow the link below.

I hope this has been of help for you.

Acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger


Make sure all of your drivers are updated for the webcam and the sound card. To check the drivers go to the manufacturer's websites for each of these products. Also, make sure your yahoo messenger is updated and make sure that the Windows Live Essentials is updated to latest version. If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.
