USB PC Camera (Vimicro301 Neptune) is not working with Yahoo Messenger. It works on my PC and I can see the images, but whenever I connect it to Yahoo Messenger I get a "Webcam is not connected" message. Can you help?

First, update your webcam drivers and install the latest version of Yahoo Messenger. After that, close any other programs, launch the application, navigate to Messenger > My Webcam > File > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source and select the Vimicro301 Neptune webcam. Also, install the latest version of DirectX. If the problem is not solved, check the troubleshooting guides provided by Yahoo.
