How does the camera assistant software for toshiba work?


Step 1 : Open Yahoo! Messenger and then click "Messenger," "Preferences" and then select "Webcam." Choose the option "When I show my webcam, change my status message to," and then enter whatever you want your status message to be in the text field. Then click "OK" to finish changing your status settings.


Step 2 : Choose "Webcam" from your Yahoo! Messenger "Preferences" menu and then click one of the following options, "Always ask my Permission," "Allow everyone to view my webcam," or "Always allow the following people to view my webcam." If you choose the latter you can select, from your friend's list, the people who you always want to allow to view your webcam. From there you can also select "Ignore other view requests," if you don't want to allow anyone else to view your webcam. You also have the option to either choose or not choose to select "If I am in a chat room, allow people in the chat room to view my webcam," by clicking the box. If you want to remove anyone who is viewing your webcam, you can select, "Who's watching me?" to remove their name from your viewers list.


Step 3 :Click "Webcam" from the "My Webcam" options in your Yahoo! Messenger "Preferences" menu, and choose "Statistics. From there you can figure out how much bandwidth you are using, as your connection mode, frame rate, image size and image capture type.

Step 4 : Select "Messenger," "Preferences," and "Webcam" from Yahoo! Messenger, and then click "Camera Settings."

My webcam


Can be several reasons
1) Lack of resources - internet connection etc
2) Check settings

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

The person viewing the webcam should make the INTERNET CONNECTION as above ( less webcam connected )

Sometimes it takes a bit of juggling and I have been running on "connect via proxy" for 3 days to enable my webcam to show as 'available'

I cannot find the "video and voice set up" in yahoo messenger that's why i cannot use my cyberlinkyoucam as my webcam


Yahoo! Messenger offers voice services, such as PC-to-PC, PC-to-cell or PC-to-landline calling. You can also participate in chat rooms and use the voice chat feature instead of typing. However, slow connection speeds or improper settings can interfere with voice activation in Yahoo! Messenger.


Instructions
  1. Step 1 Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
  2. Step 2 Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
  3. Step 3 Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
  4. Step 4 Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
  5. Step 5 Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.

My camera is blurry every time i open up a video chat


Theres a few ways you could try to rotate the lense and see if itll fix just by normal focusing. Though the program you installed in the CD you can set the defaults which should also come with a "Zeroing" as it were. Try those 2 and see if they work, also check for new updated drivers just incase. If those fail then i would uninstall and reinstall

Got a solution... you have to close and exit the A4tech (AMCAP) screen. Then start the yahoo webcam by clicking the "My Webcam" on the yahoo messenger. At this time, you should be able to see yourself at yahoo webcam.

Hope this helps.

Defragment your system. If that doesn't work

http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=877183&CFTOKEN=73607451

Use that site to download your drivers
Use www.hwinfo.com, download software to find the maker of your webcam.
Download as many drivers that match. If a driver does not fit your system your computer will recognize it and reject it.
