I don't really know how to use it. It was a gift from my daughter after my hard drive crashed.


Well, it's very easy for you to use a web camera. First you have to decide how do you want to use it.. means you can use it for video chatting through Paltalk, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Skype etc. For video chat you will need to install it in your PC.

To install first connect the web cam with PC. Insert the installation CD in CD/DVD-ROM, run Setup.exe and install it. Once setup is successfully completed you may need to restart the PC.

Now open and sign in your chat client (MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger, Gtalk messenger, AOL etc.) For example: If you want to start share your web cam in Yahoo messenger, just Login with your ID and password....click on Messenger choose option My Webcam.One warning message will appear...click OK....your webcam will start....Now if you want to invite someone to view your webcam, simply click on his/her ID and open IM window....click on Actions, choose More Actions from down of the list....and click on Invite to view my webcam....if he/she accepts your invitation...he/she will able to see you....again if you want to see someone who having Webcam....open the IM window by clicking his/her ID.... follow option Actions > More Actions and click on View webcam....yahoo will send the request to him/her...if he/she accept your request....you will able to see him/her....

For MSN messenger....sign in to your messenger and click on Actions and from list choose option Video and click on Show my webcam to view your webcam to others from your contact list.....or click on Start a video call to start video chat.....

To see others webcam click on View a contact's webcam....if the person accept your webcam....you will able to see his/her webcam....

Same to other chat client too...just little different in options....

I think you can get it easily...

Split cam is not showing video i connect to yahoo and i just get a black screen


make sure that you setting up your webcam on your yahoo messenger properly, this problems are not setup properly on YM.
Go to Preferences on your Yahoo Messenger, see it there that your webcam is currently default to use on the system, and if not, just to select your Creative Labs Live Cam.
Or maybe you didn't install yet your nice cam. You have to setup that before you use all your chat messenger program. Good luck!

I tried to view my friends webcam on yahoo messenger and she tried to view mine but it said that she had to give me permission to view her webcam and neither one of us know how to give permission to view...


There is option somewher in your messenger
that asks you to give the other person permission.
Could possibly be somewhere in the chat box when you open that.
I don't go on chat so I can't tell you exactly where but it is there.
Open your chat box and try in there first.Should say tools video or options.
Hope this helps.
