    Yahoo's Super Webcam

    Yahoo offers a new service if you have a "Broadband" connection and a video cam, you can not only "chat", but talk and see the party you're connected with. In addition, they offer a "Super Webcam" that is supposed to increase the speed of the video some twenty fold, from approximately 1 frame per second to 20. Only problem is that it is always "greyed" out and can't be used. The conditions, according to Yahoo, are that you must have a "Broadband" connection, no firewall and be on with only one other that has the same setup.
    There is no e-mail help nor phone help that I could see. There is a page that allows you to fill out a form but the reply is to go to another page (which has no form).

    Does anyone have any ideas either how to make this Super Webcam work or where to find someone at Yahoo to respond?

    Thanks.

    Re: Yahoo's Super Webcam

    From just the information you provided, it sounds like a bad idea. No firewall with a broadband connection? That's pretty much crazy talk.
    Do you have a link where you see this information? I took a quick glance at Yahoo's site but I don't have the time or desire to sift through all that business on the site.
    Thanks
    have fun

    In the middle of the page you'll see a reference to Super Webcam. Click on "more info".

    Thanks.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
