Update your yahoo messenger 10 Beta to latest version of yahoo messenger.
An update of Yahoo! Messenger 10 Beta is now available (10.0.0.542). This latest version addresses a couple of video call bugs, plus some improvements in messaging about how it works. Changes in this latest version include:
- Improvements in the webcam detection logic. If you were able to use your webcam on 9.0 or other IM programs, but not on Yahoo! Messenger 10, this fix should take care of the issue.
- Explanation for grayed-out video call button. If your video call button is grayed-out when you’re IM’ing with a friend, it’s because they’re on an older version of Yahoo! Messenger. In order to receive your video call, they also need to upgrade to Yahoo! Messenger 10 Beta. To help reduce confusion about this, we added an inline message explaining this.
- Smoother handling of unanswered calls. When you make a call to a friend but they don’t answer within 20 seconds, the call is automatically terminated. Previously there was no messaging about this, so we added one to let you know that your friend did not answer your call.
- Better explanation for downgraded video calls. In the event your internet connection can no longer support the full video call (e.g. video + voice), the conversation gets downgraded to a voice-only call. When this happens, the video picture disappears. This is the correct behavior, but we added some inline messaging so you’ll know when and why it’s happening.
