Hi Rushguy55

It may be a Direct X issue.

First,
***Follow the link below to Test ur webcam using Internet explorer
\015\012http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger75/webcam/webcam-03.html

The above page will check compatibility with Y! messenger.


Minimum Requirements:
For your webcam to work with Yahoo! Messenger, it needs to support the following:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Either one of these image sizes:\015\012
      \015\012
    • Small image size: 160 x 120
    • \015\012
    • Large image size: 320 x 240
    \015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. RGB, I420, or IYUV formats. (Each is fine; we recommend RGB 24.)
  4. \015\012
  5. Microsoft DirectX version 9.0
\015\012To get this information, click here to download a Microsoft application that checks to see if your webcam device meets these requirements.
\015\012To make it easy, when you’re asked where to Save the program, just save it on your Desktop.
\015\012Once it’s downloaded, here’s what to do:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Double-click the amcap.exe file on your desktop.\015\012
      \015\012
    • If you have more than one webcam installed, click the Devices menu and select the one you want to use.
    \015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. Click the Options menu, then click “Video capture Pin.”
  4. \015\012
  5. Under “Color Space/Compression:”, choose one of the following formats:\015\012
      \015\012
    • RGB 24 (our recommendation)
    • \015\012
    • I420
    • \015\012
    • IYUV
    \015\012Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger.
    \015\012
  6. \015\012
  7. Under “Output Size”, choose one of the following: \015\012
      \015\012
    • 160 x 120
    • \015\012
    • 320 x 240
    \015\012Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger.
    \015\012
  8. \015\012
  9. Click OK.
  10. \015\012
  11. Close the ampcap application.
  12. \015\012
  13. From your desktop, click “Start” and select “Run”.
  14. \015\012
  15. In the run box, type: dxdiag
  16. \015\012
  17. In the confirmation dialog box, click OK.
  18. \015\012
  19. On the System Tab under “System Information”, look for DirectX\015\012version. Verify that your version is DirectX 9.0. If it is, just click Exit. If your version is older than 9.0 (any lower number), click here to download the latest version of DirectX.
  20. \015\012
  21. Start the webcam from Messenger by clicking My Webcam in the Messenger menu.

hope this helps. . .
