Have you gone into System Preferences (click on Apple icon, top left of screen) and changed the Energy Saver settings? If the Energy Saver settings are set too low, your Mac will shut down.

How do I do a video webchat


Step 1:
Which messenger service ???? skype ,yahoo ,msn , google....
Use MSN for Video Chat b> Configure your webcam (see Below for help) if your computer does not have a built-in one. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmessenger/ballew_video.mspx Launch MSN Messenger. Use your email address and password to sign in. Click on "Actions." Point to "Audio/Video" and select the "Start a video conversation" option. Navigate to your contact list. Highlight the username of the contact with whom you wish to video chat and click "OK." An invitation to begin video chat will be sent to the contact. Once the contact accepts the invitation, you will receive a confirmation message. Once the contact accepts your invitation, Messenger will automatically turn on your webcam and the contact will be able to see you. Chat with the contact by typing text into the text field and clicking "Send." Click on the webcam icon to end the conversation.
Do Video Chat With Yahoo Messenger b> Yahoo! Messenger is an instant messaging application allowing users to communicate with each other in real-time.
It is available for several platforms but only the Windows and Mac versions allow video chats.

Minimum Requirements
Users need to have a webcam and a headset or a microphone and speakers in order to video chat. It is also necessary to have a Yahoo! account. b> System Requirements for Windows Windows users need version 10 or higher of Yahoo! Messenger for Windows, Windows XP or later, a computer with at least a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM or more in order to video chat. b> System Requirements for Mac Mac users need version 3.0 or higher of Yahoo! Messenger for Mac, Mac OS X 10.4 or later, either a G4 with a 400 MHz processor or a Mac with an Intel processor and at least 512 MB of RAM in order to video chat. b> Webcam Compatibility for Mac Many Macs for home use come preinstalled with a webcam but if yours does not, you can check its compatibility with Messenger with the BTV software program from Ben Software. b> Webcam Compatibility for PC Yahoo! provides a test page for PC users to test their webcams.

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

MiniCam Causing blue screen when trying to video conference in MSN messenger


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

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


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 helps. Bud
