I am having a problem with aol newest AIM programme. I just downloaded it there today and tried to do a video chat with my sister but i could see her but she couldnt see me.

I was looking all over for the setting but i could see anything about webcam feature only getting the option when you click to chat.

Nothing wrong with my webcam asit works perfect with MSN and Y!, but MSN was cutting out a good bit this evening so i thought the servers were to busy.

Hi, I am not familiar with AOL's AIM, but I would think that cam settings should be found under either Tools/Options or just Options.

yes it used to be in the other 5.5 version but now i just cant find it anywhere. It seems its broadcast in a very small picture also.

Windows live is maybe the best option(but servers seemed to be busy) but i need to get AOL working

o44wen. You might like to consider the free Sightspeed - much smoother video than AIM and you can resize the window to as large as you like! You both have to download it, though.
