Have you checked to make sure your webcam is being recognized by Windows Live Messenger? When you say that you have AOL, are you speaking to your actual service provider (like you sign-in to AOL to access the internet) or your IM provider (like you use AOL Instant Messenger).
If you?re in Windows Live Messenger, you can try using the Help menu, or I?d suggest checking out the Messenger Support Space (http://messenger-support.spaces.live.com/) for more info.

Me and my nephew are having a heck of a time in viewing each other in wl. We can text but can't see each other...why? I go to action/video and choose view contact cam and a dialog box appears where I enter his name, but its the wrong box that appears. He has Yahoo and I have aol...would that make a difference why we can't see each other? I thought WL can view yahoo, msn and gmail. Please correct me if I'm wrong and if i am, please tell me how to get this to work where we can see each other. ..asap..trying again tomorrow and want to be prepared...thanks.
