I am about to buy my first apple mac. Its am imac 20". I currently have a dell windows laptop and use windows live messenger frequently. i need a instant messing program that allows me to talk to my hotmail and yahoo friends. It would be a huge benifit it it also has video support.
I've having trouble getting the "webcam" option on "live messenger" on my MAC. There is no option for starting a conversation with a cam and when people request a cam conversation it suggests that i get "window live v7" I've already got this. Do I need a separate webcam instead of the built-in one i have on my laptop?
While iSight works for my MBP, and Skype uses it just fine under XP....Yahoo Messenger says it cannot use it.Anyone have any luck getting it to work? It seems to not support the right resolution, is what I have gathered.
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.
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.
I was able to get into hotmail earlier today. Later, when I tried to log in to hotmail later, it wouldn't work. With my main account, it doesn't do anything except just go back to the screen to enter my password. When I try my other account, it gets to a screen that says I don't have a windows live inbox (wtf). It doesn't appear isolated to my computer, as I tried my roommates computer, and his computer just kind did nothing but go to a blank screen when I enter my password.
Does anyone know how I can use Windows Live Mail on my Apple Mail application? I have tried following some guides but it seems to have gone wrong. I would like a simple step by step guide in how to do this please, as in what the incoming and outgoing servers will be etc etc?
So I just got the 2.53 GHz 15.4" MacBook Pro, and I had the Windows 7 RC laying around so I partitioned the drive and installed it. It's running great, I really like it, but here's my problem. Windows and all applications can see the iSight camera, but not the Microphone. If I go into the Sound control panel and click on the Recording tab, the microphone is there, and when I say something I can see that Windows DOES see it, but no other application shows it. I have all the Boot Camp drivers installed.
I have Windows 7 64-bit on my MacBook Pro. I have Windows Live Mail installed. When I sync iTunes to my iPhone 4, under the Info tab it says "No supported application can be found" for the Calendar and Mail sections even though I have Windows Live Mail and it has a calendar in it.
i'm helping my mom to move all her mails that she saved on her ibm laptop to the old mbp that i passed on to her.... is there a way i can completely dub all the e-mails that are downloaded and the contact lists to mac's entourage? It would be good if someone can provide me instructions from 0 - 10 starting with the windows side
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.
I�m new member here, I really found a lot of things that I missed. Recently I owned �MacBookPro� 2.4 core 2 due, 2 GB Ram, 250 GB Hard Drive, Nivada 256 MB Video Card, with Windows XP Pro. In parallels. So is there any way to activate my I sight cam to work on XP, I tried on control panel in scanner and cameras, but nothing there. In the OS X working fine, but when I switch it windows no cam has been connected.
I have an iMac with Windows 7 running via bootcamp. As I understand it, I should be able to use my iMac's built in iSight camera in Windows but I do not see any application installed that will allow me to use it. I ran the bootcamp drivers from my Leopard disc and then did the update from Apple's support site. Am I missing something to get it working?
I got a Mac OS X from my brother, we set up the internet on it and everything. I clicked on the messenger, but it won't work. It told me: Sign in to Microsoft Messenger failed because the service is not available or you may not be connected to the Internet.
So I downloaded MSN Messenger for Mac, installed it, tried to sign in but again it said the same thing!!!how do I make it work?!
I am a NYU college student and have my macbook pro (running snow leopard os) connected to the internet via ethernet connection. My mac is sharing internet through it's ethernet connection and my ipod, blackberry, and friend's computers can connect via it's connection. However, the same does not go for my xbox 360. I keep getting a message saying "unable to connect to xbox live because my router can't assign an ip address" I have tried unplugging my internet for 30 seconds but it still doesn't work...neither does a direct ethernet connection.
