I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,

This is my first time joining the forum. I could not find a subforum for IM so I'm posting my question here. If i'm in the wrong place please excuse me and redirect me to the right place.

I'm desperately seeking answers and hoping some people here could help me. I'm using Yahoo Messenger (version 7.0) on a windows XP. I have a Creative Notebook Webcam plugged in and use it daily for communicating with my family. For some reason, every time I log onto Y!Messenger and activate my webcam -- and simultaneously i'm watching the webcam from the person on the other end --their webcam image would show my image after one or two minutes. I'm seeing doubles! I have to keep exiting and re-requesting to view their webcam and this is becoming a frustrating experience. Please help!!!

If it helps to know, the person on the other end uses a D-link wireless router, and mine is using also a D-link wireless router but it branches from one of those Vonage Linksys adaptor.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP....

Not sure but I think it something to do with version compatability, see if your both running the same / latest versions. As I said though, not 100% sure.

I am using Windows XP Professional with a Logitech Pro 3000 Webcam. My friend has Windows 98 witha LG Webcam. We are both using current version of Yahoo Messenger.
When trying to establish a webcam contact with each other he has 2 images - one is what he is sending and one is what I am sending. Unfortunately I only have an image of what I am sending and can't receive his sent images.
Subsequently I received a message saying I needed updated software. I don't understand why or what this is referring to as I have updated the camera software and he is able to recieve my images.
Can anyone offer any ideas or answers?

Hello Matth3w

Welcome to TSF

I have seen the rest of your requests for help in different forums and not one person has asked you, Have you got Norton? Has your partner got Norton?

If so then you/your partner need to give Norton permission to allow the yahoo web cam facility.

The error message is actually being transmitted from your side telling the other computer that your blocking it because you haven't yet accepted it as a safe device/service

1. You can change these settings in through Windows Firewall

Control Panel\Security\windows Firewall

2. Select Change Settings and select the Exceptions tab.

3. Look down the list to find Yahoo Messenger or relating programs and check the box to the left of it

4. If you cannot find Yahoo Messenger or relating programs select Add Program and search through the Program File to add it.

5. Once checked select Apply and Ok

6. Reboot and try the webcam, you should now be able to use it without any errors. Let me know if its a go

Regards

Hi,
thanks for help.
My sister has always been able to view my webcam on Yahoo Messenger. I have Messenger 5.0. Now that she has a webcam, I can not view hers. I get a message saying "you do not have the latest version....". She has version 5.5. I was told by a few people in a yahoo chat room for internet use that 5.0 was the best and to avoid higher versions. Do my sister and I have to have the same version? why can she receive my cam but me not receive hers?
thanks.
Nick
 

A:yahoo messenger & webcam help.....

Either you need to upgrade to 5.5 or she needs to come back to 5.0. The new versions are backwards compatible to the old, but the old ones dont have the ability to watch cams on new versions.

All of a sudden, I can no longer use my cam on Yahoo Messenger. I uninstalled Messenger and downloaded again and it will not bring up the view window. It does nothing, no error or message appears at all. I even reinstalled the software to the cam. I have an Intel Pro Cam. It works fine with the Intel software. So I am thinking it is a problem with Messenger. Does anyone have an ideas?

Your Yahoo webcam should work fine with a high speed connection. If you are operating behind a router firewall you'll need to configure the router's incoming and outgoing TCP services using port 5100.

It works fine through AIM and MSN Messenger and there is no other problems with it or the software it came with. I have looked all throughout the Yahoo Help Center for any possible help and of course there is nothing there and I can't seem to find where you could email them with this problem. Logitech says it is a problem with Yahoo Messenger and to contact Yahoo. I have uninstalled YM and deleted my Yahoo folder in my Programs folder and even tried Web Messenger and get the same problem, except it is Explorer crashing and not just Yahoo. I have tried the preferences in yahoo messenger as well, but there is nothing there. Is there anyone that has an idea of what could be causing this.

Hi. I have a computer that has a video capture card and I am also using a USB webcam. the webcam works fine on it's own and in other programs but is not recognized by Yahoo messenger. Also the webcam configuration areas in Yahoo are greyed out. I think the problem is related to the fact that I have the video capture card and the webcam. The video capture card by default seems to be the device that yahoo is recognizing and of course is determining that it is not compatible. I actually had this same issue a few months ago when the computer was new. I did some google searches and found a discussion that explained this conflict AND there was a link to a utility that I downloaded that permitted me to switch between default video capture devices. The problem has now returned. Apparently I have since deleted that utility and cannot now find any reference to it on any of my google searches. If anyone here is familar with this problem and has a solution...or the name of the utility that allows me to switch between these video devices i would appreciate your assistance.

Thanks

I just recently started having this problem with yahoo and my webcam. It does not happen when my webcam is hooked up to other multi-media programs.

My cam says it connecting (after which it may or may not then say 'waiting to reconnect') and then it fails and saying 'network error while connecting to server'. I also cant view anyone's cam either as the same thing happens - even when that person has NO cam.

I've unloaded a reload yahoo several times; and removed norton firewall completely to no avail. I tried using different yahoo user id's. I have my yahoo CONNECTION option set to 'no network detection' . I even modified the registry by adding a Webcam folder in HKEY_CURRENT_USER (see this link http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mesg/webcams/webcams-30.html)

Which version of Windows are you running? Are you running Messenger 5.5?

If you have a look at this:

it mentions a proxy. Go to Control Panel | Internet Options.

Connections tab, Settings. Is Use a Proxy ticked? If so, untick. OK.

Advanced tab, under HTTP 1.1 Settings, is the first box Use HTTP 1.1 ticked? If the second one is, untick and just make sure the first one is ticked. Apply and OK.

Previously in 98 all went smoothly. I use a Logitech 4000 webcam which works fine in and of itself .

I know my office comp is connected to a lan. but i dont know what router (if at all) is used. i dont have any other information regarding the lan system. i have checked through websites that even ports like 80 show as closed for my ip.

so how do i open port 5100, if at all its possible. or shud i try some proxy. i have tried http and sock proxy but without any success due to my llimited knowledge.
 

A:Yahoo webcam port 5100 problem

You cant do anything on your computer to resolove this issue. It is on the firewall (DMZ) for your whole network. It has that port closed, most likely for streaming video so you bandwith wont get bogged down. So i dought your It dept will open it for your webcam. Even thought you remove the proxies all traffic from your network is still routed threw a firewall.

There could be many explanations for what is happening, so adding a little more explanation of the problem would perhaps help narrow down the cause.

I have downloaded yahoo messenger 7.0 and the installation was successful. After that I ran it but the yahoo messenger screen came up for a split second then went away before I could do anything. It does this over and over again. I have uninstalled and restarted... I dont know what to do. Then I tried to find help on the net... they told me to uninstall programs like mywebsearch, adware, or systamic files.... something like that. I tried that too. Then I tried to totally delete yahoo off my computer which I am pretty sure I did. Then that didnt work since it had the same result of popping up and then going away before I could do anything. I finally got an error message saying that the entry file or something couldnt be found. But I still dont know what to do.. HELP?
