C. Windows Live Messenger:

I cannot make call and videocall in my yahoo messenger


Maybe the ones you are calling doesn't support videocall, maybe using a different yahoo messenger version or maybe he just logged in an email. Or maybe your ym has bug. Sign out then sign in again. Maybe it would work now.

Hi,
Load the Yahoo home page (see Resources below) and start Yahoo Messenger by signing in using your account information. Sign up for an account by clicking the 'Sign Up' button if you haven't done so already.
  • Step 2 Click on a contact in your Contact List once Yahoo Messenger loads. This will make a number of different contact options appear like sending photos and files, as well as making direct connections.
  • Step 3 Click the 'Call this PC' icon. This causes the other person's computer to alert him or her of your call.
  • Step 4 Check your voicemail by clicking 'Menu' and then clicking the 'Voicemail' option. If you have voice messages, you can easily listen to them here.
  • Step 5 Click on the 'Soundblast' button to choose from a list of different sound effects you can use in your conversation

  • Thank You,
    Your Support Tech.
