I can cee myself when i cut onmy mini cam but i cant get it to work on yahoo


Firstly you have to install the drivers of the webcam on your PC. That you seem to have done as you can see yourself. That means that the camera is being recognized by the PC. Now to get it to work with Yahoo, you have to tell Yahoo to use this camera as default camera while you video talk. To do that you must go to Yahoo Preferences and->Video. There you must specify this camera as the default camera. Save settings. Now you would be able to video talk in Yahoo. To use it with other IMs like Skype etc, the procedure remains the same. Problem in computing is that each and everything has to be told how to do what.

Webcam not connecting to yahoo messenger


!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.

Lifecam vx-3000 wont connect


Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Logitech webcam and yahoo messenger


I was having this same problem..the only way I knew to fix it..shut down your window for the cam when it pops up..you shouldn't be seeing two windows of yourself. I thought was supposed to. So just click View my Webcam or use the Webcam button on YM...then shut the one that comes up when you turn your cam on.
Hope this helps.
