You need to download which ever chat program that your friend uses for his web mail, such as AOL, Yahoo, etc. Here area few links to the more popular ones. Remember, you want to download what he is using, and the install it to your laptop, and you're up in running. Oh, and make sure you have the web cam software installed on your laptop too, that might help. =)

How use the web cam with laptop


1) Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already (see Resources below).

2) Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting.

3) Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend.

4) Click on a contact from your Contact List, and then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active.

5) Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams.

6) Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires.

7) Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed

Thanks

to chat with ur friends u will need the foll:
WebCam, Mic, and Speakers.

I have followed instructions with set up of new logitech cam chat but still all my friends are unavailable. the also have logitech cams and using ligitech vid as i am. thank you


Make sure you all use the same version of the chat software.
Next check that your webcam is working locally. You can check the device manager and use a local webcam program to check that.
ALso make sure the chat program is defined as an exception in the Windows firewall so it is not blocked.

We can't get the webcam to work after one party answers the call


I have written this to help people to setup their Web Cams on Skype and Yahoo Messenger.
Normal 0

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 set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. 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.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this is of some help to you in setting up Skype. Bud

Gmail does not support video as far as I know. To chat with your friend over Yahoo you need to download the Yahoo Instant Messenger software. Others use the Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger. Skype is another popular Instand Messenger program.
