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 Settings 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 can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
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

How do I E-Mail Photos from my Olympus fe-290 on a dell laptop with winows vista. I do have the USB cord, thanks you


method 1 without photo management software:

To e-mail pictures from your camera with your laptop just hook up the camera to your laptop
and widows should come up with a menu asking you what you want to do with this device.
choose open folder to view files this should make the cameras media show up on the desktop.
You should also be able to see the media on the camera under my computer removable storage.
Or if it shows up here as a camera just right click and choose explore device. With most cameras
thier should be a folder called DCIM your pictures should be in this directory. Some cameras may
have subdirectories like video and thumnails in this directory also.

Once you've found the pictures, open you e-mail client or web mail and create a new e-mail. Open the attachment button. this should bring up a file manager that will allow you to find your pictures and select the ones you want to send. Some e-mail programs will have a white clipboard area beside the attachment button. If the e-mail client your using does, then you can just drag and drop
the pictures here to attach them to your e-mail

If your sending large picture files say 6.0mp and up then don't send more than one to 3 per e-mail
otherwise it can chog up your e-mail client for several minutes to hours.

If you want to send many pictures or video files to friends and family members you might consider
Dropbox. This is an online backup and storage program that will allow to share files online.

Method 2 with photo management:

Photo management software can take alot of the manual process of getting photos from your camera and storing them on your hard drive, fixing lighting, fixing red eye, fixing orientation,
tagging, organizing and other things you may want to do with your photos and automating the
process. Some of these have either the ability to create web albums or email pictures directly
from the photo management software. I personally like Picasa from Google

Hello, I would like to know how to take pictures of who I am talking to with a web cam.It is a logitech 9000. thank u


You can only take pictures of yourself with your webcam. The person on the other side would have to take pictures with their own camera and send them to you. Is that what you meant?

Crystal eye web cam


in my computer, you should have the camera there, if installed correctly, there you can just view the picture and take pictures(open the camera), it won't be shown to other people there.

you can use it on a program like msn messenger to view other peoples webcameras and send picture from yours.

CANON POWERSHOT A70 CAN NOT TAKE PICTURE DUE TO NO IMAGE SHOWING STARTED OUT GRAINY(LIKE A TV W/ NO CABLE)NOW THERE IS NOTHING THERE WHEN CAMERA IS TURNED ON. i CAN STILL SEE PICTURES THAT HAVE BEEN...


Your Canon A70 is one of those camers made with bad CCDs. That is the image sensor has known defect after production and market launch. Instead of recall their products, Canon offer owners to send/bring in their camera for CCD replacement without service/parts charge. Go to Canon web site to find an authorized service centre nearest to where you live, phone them up to confirm free service. You may either mail in or bring it to them in person. As far as I know, Canon will reimburse the shipping cost to you as well as sending the fixed camera for free.
Take a look of a third party comment/information regarding the bad CCDs by clicking here before taking further action. It didn't show black/blank screen as a symptom, but individual manufacturer web site did mention them as symptoms.

Cant find how to get picture out over air and also how to get pictures in my cam gallery out to others or use my self as id on im


you do not need to open the camera up to use it in your IM programme. The programme itself will need to be set up so that it knows you have a camera, so in the optins or settings or preferences menu the cam will need to be set up and also need to enable in the menu somewhere something similair to 'show others I have a web cam'. When you click open a video call the camera will automatically turn on and you can adjust the size and volume to suit. As for pictures, you use the camera software to do this and in options or preferences there will be a default place where the pictures will be stored, eg my pictures. To send a picture within the IM programme you use 'send a file' and it will ask you then to browse for the file or photo, click open and it will load ready for your IM recipient to accept and download it, if you are sent one then it will probably go to 'my downloads' folder or 'my received files' folder. in your firewall or security programme in the allowed programmes or allowed settings make sure Yahoo messenger is in the allowed list, if not add it in whatever way your programme works. If you have to pay your ISP more money to add to the allowed list, then cancel the security software, and use a freeware one. Paying for added security, when it needs to be allowed and not stopped, it's a rip off, you do not need to pay for any added security, in fact you can readily download more than adequate programmes for free on the net, namely 'Zone alarm', and most of these ISP security programmes are no better than a reputable free one.

Camera not capturing


If it works in other ways, autofocuses, seems to lock on and is ready, but the shutter won't release,  and if when you turn it on, there's a buzzing sound for a few seconds, and if you turn on the AS button and when you press the shutter release part way you see five bars blinking on the right side of the viewfinder, you've got an AS system failure, and will have to send the camera in for service.
