When i installed yahoo messenger 10 and when i open chat box with any of my friend my cam bottom is not active even voice call not active


hi try this one.
Once you have the webcam installed on your computer you have to configure it to whatever chat program you wish to use.

YAHOO MESSENGER WEBCAM

Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

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. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > 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

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Sometimes you may have to broadcast the 'small image' option from the 'Webcam' menu on the top of your image frames. This happens when one of you is down on resources -its like sending a large photo by email - its quicker if you cut the size down
you can zoom up to 200% from the same menu when the webcam picture comes through

Use the 'Always on top' option from the 'webcam' menu - or your image will disappear under the message window when you type a message

In addition to the webcam suppliers software most webcams need support software - this point was probably made when you ran the Dynex CD. I have a Logitech cam and need Microsoft DirectX 10

How do i connect my web cam to my yahoo messinger


I am going to assume that you already have installed your webcam and can use it within windows with the software it came with.

I am also going to assume you are using yahoo messenger 10.

To activate your webcam in Yahoo! Messenger 10 in the top menu click Messenger, then from there select My WebCam.

Read the warning that should pop up, click OK and then select your speed preference and click OK.
Another box should come up showing your webcam view. It will monitor how many users are watching yor webcam.

hELLO THERE:
YOU FIRST NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU SYSTEM MEETS THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SOFTWARE YOU ARE TRYING TO LOAD. IF YOU DO MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS YOU CAN TRY TO REINSTALL THE SOFTWARE TO SEE IF IT WILL FULLY INSTALL AND IF NOT THERE SHOULD BE A TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION IN YOUR USERS MANANUAL YOU CAN USE WITH PHONE NUMBERS TO ASSIST YOU OK?

I use Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2


Download this utility and save it to your desktop. Disable any antivirus or anti-malware applications

you have running. Double click the icon once the download is completed. Do not interfere with the

program once it begins. You can sit back and let this utility do its job including the installation of

Windows Recovery Console.

Make sure also that your machine meets system requirements for the games you intend to play.

Update your display drivers and acquire the latest directx drivers.

When complete restart your computer and click START.....RUN.....then type msconfig

and click OK. Click BOOT.INI and under "operating systems" view the order they

appear in and if the one you want to load on boot is listed second......highlight the

first one and click "move down". Next reboot the machine to view the change you've

made. You want the Recovery Console /cmdcons to be placed as your second

boot option. Conceptual View

Please try applying the patch for this game located here:

http://www.valusoftsupport.com/ProductProfile.asp?pid=458

If this does not help, ensure your computer meets the system requirements.

While I dont know your computer, many games crash on built in video because there is no support for hardware transform and lighting which many games require to run these days.
