Once your webcam software is loaded and working, in most cases the software loaded will provide some kind of display function allowing you to know that the software is working, then load up YM and under the Messenger tab, you will find ' MY WEBCAM '. Select ' My webcam ' and you should start seeing your display while using YM, that is the same display that others will see to whom you give allowance to see your webcam. I.E. you have to personally give each person permission to see your webcam. Until you know more about YM from personally using it and experiencing it, that is all I should say, but I will add one more tidbit. YM 9.0 beta is what I use and I'm quite happy with it as I have better control of the stealth function with it did I had with YM 8.0. Consider that when installing YM

Camera dont work on Yahoo Messenger


Please make sure that your web cam is not been in use by any other messenger or its in use.

If the web cam is open or being used by any other messenger then it will not work on other platform.

Since few days there is some issue with yahoo messenger's audio and video.

v Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud
