    I cant figure out how to make the 'acer crystal eye webcam' take videos and how to work it on stickam or video chat with others. the webcam is built into my acer one aspire netbook/ mini laptop, and it says nothing about how to do those things in the manual. but it DOES say in the description that the webcam is for video communication, but there are no options for that.

Its not solution Guest, its the same problem..

In fact,YM Version below 9 is too much problem for VISTA. So, its up to you to use YM version 9 because YM V9 is too problem if I using YM V8 and you using new YM V9.

YM below V9 is CANNOT voice message and problem for WEBCAM. You can read another forums discuss about this.

The solution is :
1. Try YM version 9 (still have problems)
2. Change to XP (Excellent solutions)

But if your OS is XP, you can check your preferrence in Yahoo Mesengger, then check Camera Source, click the right cam installed in your computer. Settle!
