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

Can see and hear other person but can't hear myself or see myself and the other person can't see me


Does the webcam work locally at all?
If not, you might need to install the webcam driver first.
Once the webcam shows up as working in the Device Manager (under imaging devices), you can configure it as the video input source in the chat program.

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.

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.

It depends on what you're using to videoconference.

With most IM (instant messaging) programs there's a button to show your camera to other users.
I know for sure that YahooIM and MS messenger both have this feature.
