MacBook Pro :: Video Chat In Yahoo Messenger - ISight Not Working

Jun 20, 2010

So I just got a MacBook Pro a couple months ago, and I am having issues using webcam chat in Yahoo Messenger for Mac. The built in iSight cam doesn't seem to turn on (no green light) when I try to use it, and the person on the other end just sees a black screen for my webcam.

Applications :: Using Yahoo Messenger ISight ?

Mar 9, 2010

I've been using Yahoo Messenger with Snow Leopard just fine for a while, but now all of a sudden the webcam feature does not work. When I try to invite someone to view my webcam they just see a black screen that says "Starting Webcam Session...", but it never loads. Similarly, when I try to view someone's webcam, the same thing happens on my end. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Like I said, it was working fine until a few days ago.

Hardware :: Record Video Chat Using ISight?

Aug 11, 2009

I know you can use iSight as a camera to record in iMovie or Photo Booth...but is it possible to record a video chat? So say me and my bro are chatting, can iSight record that chat, so I would be able to see both me in a little box, and my bro in the main portion of the screen? Or would I need more of a screen capture program for that?

Nov 11, 2009

MacBook Pro OS X 10.4.11

I'm using Yahoo Messenger for Mac version 3.0 beta and recently my display images have stopped displaying when logged in or when I open a chat window.

When not logged in and I am selecting a user the display images show, but they go out as soon as I login to any name. When I go to the window to set my browser image, the image field displays blank even after I try reloading the image. I have trashed my Preferences and that doesn't work.

MacBook Pro :: Video Chat - Camera Not Working?

Dec 3, 2010

Occasionally my friends and I go to tinychat to do a multi-person video chat. Usually when i click "broadcast" there are many video options and I choose the one that has myself on it. It usually says something like "USB camcorder" or something with USB in it. However; the other night I tried to go on, and it wouldn't let me. I noticed that the video options had gone down to about 4, and the one with myself was called "Built-In iSight." I have never had this option before, so I clicked it. the green light next to my camera flicked on and then off. You couldn't see me. Was it something I did? All the video sharing websites do this; however on my photobooth and ichat it works fine...

I went to iChat with my girlfriend tonight, and for some strange reason she can see me on her computer but I can't see her. All I can see in the video box is the moving image of myself. Audio is also functioning perfectly. Is there anything I can troubleshoot to fix this problem? It's becoming a bit annoying.

MacBook :: Webcam Disappears With Yahoo Messenger

Jan 19, 2009

I bought a MacBook a few months ago. I downloaded the Yahoo messenger just fine. I use the webcam when my boyfriend and I am iming. A few days ago, the messenger just "hangs." I just get that little circle and I can no longer view my webcame at the bottom of my screen. My BF says he gets my transmission from the webcam just fine as the messenger menu at the top still works. But it bugs me I can't see the image he sees. Also when I go to photobooth with the messenger on, the camera does not work. There is a camera icon with a line across it. When I sign out of the messenger, the still camera works just fine.

MacBook Pro :: ICHAT Supports Talking To Buddies From Yahoo Messenger Too?

Mar 27, 2008

I am playing with my new MBP and wanted to know if iCHAT supports talking to buddies from Yahoo Messenger too, just like it does for AIM? I got the AIM one to work, and it says something about something called Bonjour (?) but nothing about Yahoo? Please let me know how to set this up as possible, that way I won't need separate programs for AIM and Yahoo Messenger. PS- Does windows media player have a program for MACs? If not, whats the best program similar to Windows Media Player that I can use to view all the same video types as that?

OS X :: No Video Chat IMac 10.5.8 But Video Chat Ok FW10.4.11?

May 11, 2010

My iMac C2Duo 20" gets error messages when attempting a Video Chat in 10.5.8 with iChat 4.0.8. If I boot up from FW drive using 10.4.11 everything works.

When I initiate a Video Chat, after a while I get a pop up "There was a communication error during your chat. (recipient) cancelled the connection."

When I ACCEPT a Video Chat invite, I get a pop up "There was a communication error during your chat. Did not receive a response from (initiator)."

I should mention that there is also a networking problem in 10.5.8 that disappears if I boot up from the FW drive with 10.4.11. The Internet Sharing will randomly stop working for no apparent reason. I'll be connected to interenet using iPhone 3GS or old iBook G4 running 10.5.8 and suddenly I'm "no longer connected to the internet". Sometimes stopping and restarting Internet Sharing solves it for a while, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it will work for days, other times for minutes or quit overnight.

Applications :: Cannot Voice Chat With MS Messenger 8.0?

Jan 11, 2011

I installed MS messenger 8.0 on my MacBook and the only problem so far is audio.

When I make a call to one of my contact's computer using my internal microphone and internal speakers everything is fine.

If I switch to my bluetooth headset in System Preferences and retry the call I can not hear them and they can not hear me.

Using the bluetooth headset for Skype calls works fine.

Is this a messenger issue or ??????

OS X :: Quickcam For Mac Not Recognized By Instant Messenger Chat

Mar 7, 2010

I have recently bought a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 for Mac. If I connect the cam then I can find it back in "About this Mac - More Info - USB" as Logitech webcam. I also can use it in iChat. But when I log in on an Instant Messenger Chat, the Adobe Flash Player settings only recognise the iSight as webcam...not the Logitech. The Apple help desk directed me to Logitech and Logitech told me that it is somewhere in the apple programs.

OS X ::to Get Yahoo And Msn Messenger On Mac ( Windows Versions )?

Jul 14, 2009

How would i go about getting the windows versions on yahoo messenger and msn on my macbook. I installed the windows version Yahoo messenger through crossover. It downloaded and installed fine but its really buggy and i cant start conversations and when i leave the mouse over contacts names instead of showing details it shows just black, and more buggy stuff. And i couldnt install windows version of msn at all.

Prefer the obvious q's appear likeWhy not use mac versions of both the software ?They complety suck i hate them

Boot camp ?
I dont want to use windows but i want the windows versions of programs

I might try download a portable .exe of Both of the messengers and try them through crossover since the two .exe installers of the messengers i got were web based installers.

Applications :: Unable To Delete Yahoo Messenger Ghost Icon On Desktop

Jan 12, 2011

I'm trying to find a solution to an issue a family member it having with Yahoo Messenger and an iMac. The computer is an early release aluminum iMac, running Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11. Yahoo Messenger is the most current version installed. A transparent image of the Messenger icon is on the dock and seems to be stuck between the dock's line near the trash can. It won't delete, even deleted the normal version of Messenger, shut down the computer and restarted it. The image was still on the dock. Are there Messenger files in other folders, that somehow didn't get deleted when the application was deleted, causing this?
