Normal 0 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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I was on Fixya Premium and began to chat with a person, then got disconnected and I dont know how to reconnect.


Hi

have a look into your email, most of the time when a disconnect happens you receive a email that includes instructions on how to get another chat session.

If you don't have instructions and you can't seem to get a new chat session automatically by just going to www.fixya.com

I suggest you email premium.support@fixya.com for help with the issue.

Premium chatissue


Hey again,

no, we don't get any notification of it, most of the time I also miss out on those.

not much we can do about it..You can look on the account statements page and see if the chat session is rejected by customer, then he has had another chat session.

I think they are working on improving the system, right now, we have to live with it.



Thanks,
Ekse

When I try to connect for a video chat, I can see and hear the other person and they can hear me but all they see is a green screen with squigley lines on the top. Please help.


When you look at your self on the cam (in a preview window - maybe in the audio video setup of your application) can you see yourself just fine? If so your camera is working properly and the issue is most likely on their end.

How chat on gmail account please helpme


When you're signed in to Gmail, you should always see a Quick Contacts box along the left of your screen. Clicking on a name in Quick Contacts will start a chat session or an email. The people you can chat with have colored balls next to their names—green means they're online, yellow means they're idle and red means they're busy.
When someone IMs you, a chat session will show up on the bottom right corner. You can chat with them right there, or pop-out the entire chat session to its own window.
You can decide right at the outset to save chats in your Gmail account, but this can also be turned on or off in "Settings." And when you're chatting, use "Options" to go "off the record."

Broadband will work better and smoother for sure. If the cam has a mic, then it would work for almost any chat system you can get. You will get both video and audio.
