!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.

Try checking the fire wall in your cable or DSL modem. You need to enable TCP port 5100 for inbound and outbound traffic.

My web cab not working in yahoo messanger


Dear Sir,

plzz folow this step to solve your problem


Check your webcam hardware here using different software - Hit "allow" in the top window and check the result in the left panel. If you have a reasonable result,move on.

http://www.testmycam.com/

When you come to test your cam in Yahoo later - if you have a blank box - you will know the A4 software failed to load properly.

Configure webcam to Yahoo Messenger.
It's 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, unless the software has a feature for this.
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. ( If not abort configuration and re-load A4 software )

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > 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 selections ( 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'. 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 dont 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.
There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as (INTERNET CONNECTION - less webcam reference ) above, or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

YAHOO SPECIFICATION
To find out what the requirements are for messenger webcams, check out the following.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/uk/yahoo/messeng…

I used to get "Server Busy" messages when I was on dial-up, especially at weekends. I guess Yahoo cull all the cams with low bandwidth to preserve server resources when necessary )

You say you have re-installed messenger - I hope you cleaned out the old Messenger folder before downloading - the uninstall software from the Control Panel can leave a lot of software behind to create conflicts.
With Vista, the whole Messenger folder should be deleted on uninstall.
Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Program files >> Yahoo >> Messenger

Thanks For Your Time,

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

Will not work with yahoo


My Lifecam vx- 1000 wasn't working on Yahoo messenger initially. After hours of researching i came across the solution that worked for me.

In "properties" limit the USB bandwidth used - by unchecking "Auto" in configuration and decreasing the speed manually (bring it down from 6mbps to 3).

This is what worked for me, hope this helps!
