See section B. Yahoo in the info below.

Normal 0 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

Acer crystal eye webcam


The location on the hard drive that a pic will be stored will depend on the default programing of whatever software you might be using to take the pictures with. That could mean literally hundreds ( maybe thousands ) of different locations, The camera is properly loaded with working webcam DRIVER software still depends on the USER's choice of software to decide how a pic is taken. These pics that are taken can be stored in a multitude of formats with .JPG and .BMG being some of the most common picture formats. You ask a very generic question that affects ALL cameras that can be hooked up to a computer but there is NO SINGLE answer to this question as it totally lies in the discretion of the software that the END USER applies to his/her webcam/camera. In many cases an END USER can initiate changes to the programming of many softwares to force the pictures to locate in areas of the hard drive that the USER decides he/she likes. But the USER himself/herself has to initiate these actions usually in the OPTIONS part of whatever software the USER is using with the camera. That is about as generic as I can be.
