Normal 0 What it sounds like is that you have not set up the Video option in your Yahoo Messenger program. If this hasn't been done, it will not broadcast your image.
Normal 0 Here is setup Yahoo Messenger.

Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "Calling & Devices."
When that comes up check to make sure that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to your audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio "In the Blue print "Open the call setup Assistant" When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.

Hope this helps. Bud.

My webcam does not work on msn


first you need to know that if you used xp ...and upgraded to vista ...you need to find a compatible driver for your web cam too ...if your web cam used to work just fine on vista ...and its just the msn issue ...just reinstall the latest MSN messenger and it should be enough ...also verify the proxy servers on the messenger preferences..and set 'em to fit the kinda conexion you use...
but I suspect a problem with the program settings ...so the easy way is just to install the latest messenger(MSN) available for vista ...and it will be ok

Webcam works on msn but the picture is black and fuzzy


go to Logitech's website...click on your product model and from there you can download the latest drivers. Make sure to note that most device drivers for Vista 64 bit systems are different from 32 bit.
Hope this helps.

My webcam works on msn messenger but not yahoo messenger. It is a HP webcam. Is there a compatibility issue? Should I change my webcam?


No there is no compatibility issue. But you cannot use cams simultaneously on 2 messenger. Make sure that when you using it in Yahoo messenger than msn is totally shut off. Try this it should help you.

If my advice helps you, than please feel free to rate me.

Thanks

Haveing trouble installing logitech quick cam onto my comuptor thats running windows vista


This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between Windows Vista and Logitech QuickCam Messenger.
Logitech QuickCam Messenger was created by Logitech, Inc..
Recommendation
—————-
To search for similar devices that are compatible with this version of Windows, visit the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List website online.
However, it’s not totally out of hope for owner of Logitech QuickCam Messenger who has upgraded to Windows Vista. The following hack will use Windows XP driver (a common trick to use non Vista compliant device) to install the webcam in Vista:
  1. Download QuickCam 8.4.8 with driver for WinXP.
  2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.
  3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder. Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select “Extract to qc848enu\” option.
  4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.
  5. An “Driver Software Installation” icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and “Add Hardware Wizard” dialog window will appear. Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.
  6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.
  7. Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.
  8. Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.
Voila, you can now use the Logitech webcam to capture images or use it in conjunction with video chat in IM programs such as Windows Live (MSN) Messenger, AIM Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or run Logitech VideoCall.

i hope thist post can solve your problem


thank's
