    Anyone else having this problem?

    This didnt happen before. But this has been happening the past few weeks. After 10 secs or so of viewing my girlfriend's webcam, YM suddenly closes and disappears.

    Both of us are running YM for Macs. No other background applications running.

    I wonder if its a bug on my end or on her end. We are both using webcams from CDR King, the small clipable ones. I have been using this webcam before without any problems, but this started when she started using her webcam. and we dont go online at the same time. I am on a T1 connection, she is on a dial-up.

    I hope someone could enlighten us with this. Its very frustrating :slanted:

    I think its because she's on dialup. I had a similar incident last week. But when I connected to someone on broadband, ok naman.

    although intermittent & not as 'serious' as yours, i'm having similar problem with YM, it chokes/shuts down when i'm chatting with 3 or more persons.

    Hey, that just happened to me last night, but on Skype. Could it be the internet connection? We're both on DSL, though. Hmm...

    Ive been webcamming with a friend on DSL, she always complains of random shutdown of my webcam after a few seconds. She uses windows BTW.... Skype is more stable though. I think its yahoo's problem...
