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

My umax power view PC50 web cam is not working with video chat. if im not chating then it works properly what shall i do. i waht it to use in gmail, skype, only


If it is not working ..the blame is the setting or the speed of the connection ..If the connection is a mobile one ..or so..check the speed by making a speed test on the internet ..It may be too slow and not be able to send images over the internet ..If you think this is not a problem .and you have at least 3 m on second speed for download and at leat 1 m for upload ..Than reinstall the camera driver to eliminate any strange settings on it ..and after that when you start it the first time in skype or msn ..go to options ..and set the devices..check teh audio and video ..This will also link it in teh program and should make it work ..(the instant messaging may look for another camera ..when you make teh settings you have teh possibility to select it by name in a list )

TAKING PICTURES FROM THE PHONE TO MY COMPUTER


i don't know whether iam giving u the right suggestion!!!!! let me give a practical situation that i encountered, i have china mobile which acts a camcorder when i plug it in to the computer using usb cable... initially i couldn't take video or capture picture from my phone but when i tried on other system it started working....to my surprise i could take video, capture pictures when i started using a software called Skype(used for chating,calling online).


possiblities:

i) it mightbe problem with our operating system, so try downloading some usb video or picture recording software...

ii) try using SKYPE to just make sure that ur phone is in state of taking video or pictures, while using skype......go to Tools---->Options---->Video Settings---->if ur phone is working properly a video appears, from there u can take snapshots using a button just below(explore)


iii) try connecting in system which has a licensed operating system, in which usb video recording device is not corrupted....


i hope that i did solve ur problem, if you need any further clarifications you can ping me....

Thanking you
