Hi,
Just go to any computer store , and buy yourself a webcam, They really cheap and come in price range from Rs 400 to Rs 3000 depending upon the features they provide.
The instruction manual and installation CD comes along with the pack , so its just a simple approach , Plug the cam, install the cd , and you are all set to show yourself on the worlwide web.

Best of Luck
Mandeep

    Can't detect webcam on yahoo messenger version 10. for video chat


    You can only video chat if both parties have version 10
    Check your set up
    Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel. Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here

    http://www.testmycam.com/

    Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

    COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

    You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html

    CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
    Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
    Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

    INTERNET CONNECTION
    Webcam connected
    Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
    make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

    TESTING
    > Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

    SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
    With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
    Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

    PERMISSION OPTIONS
    > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

    IN USE
    When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
    Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

    Why does my web cam show a green window instead of showing me


    Sounds like its looking at a video card and not the webcam software
    Make sure your webcam is correctly shown as the Camera Source in whatever program you are chatting in

    Yahoo Messenger as below

    Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

    I don't really know how to use it. It was a gift from my daughter after my hard drive crashed.


    Well, it's very easy for you to use a web camera. First you have to decide how do you want to use it.. means you can use it for video chatting through Paltalk, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Skype etc. For video chat you will need to install it in your PC.

    To install first connect the web cam with PC. Insert the installation CD in CD/DVD-ROM, run Setup.exe and install it. Once setup is successfully completed you may need to restart the PC.

    Now open and sign in your chat client (MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger, Gtalk messenger, AOL etc.) For example: If you want to start share your web cam in Yahoo messenger, just Login with your ID and password....click on Messenger choose option My Webcam.One warning message will appear...click OK....your webcam will start....Now if you want to invite someone to view your webcam, simply click on his/her ID and open IM window....click on Actions, choose More Actions from down of the list....and click on Invite to view my webcam....if he/she accepts your invitation...he/she will able to see you....again if you want to see someone who having Webcam....open the IM window by clicking his/her ID.... follow option Actions > More Actions and click on View webcam....yahoo will send the request to him/her...if he/she accept your request....you will able to see him/her....

    For MSN messenger....sign in to your messenger and click on Actions and from list choose option Video and click on Show my webcam to view your webcam to others from your contact list.....or click on Start a video call to start video chat.....

    To see others webcam click on View a contact's webcam....if the person accept your webcam....you will able to see his/her webcam....

    Same to other chat client too...just little different in options....

    I think you can get it easily...

    Philips web cam spc110nc


    Philips Webcam SPC110NC doesnt work with Yahoo Messenger as advertised. Packaging says it works with MSN/Yahoo/AIM, but when troubleshooting Yahoo IM using AMCAP.EXE (as per the Yahoo webcam help site), it shows color space/compression used by this product is MJPG and this is the only option. Yahoo IM only supports RGB 24, I420, or IYUV.
