I have been using Yahoo messenger for a long time, and until recently I have been able to view other people's webcams. Now i get a message saying "waiting for permission from (the person i am trying to connect with)". THis happens when i accept their invitation and when i try to ask them. I haven't changed any of my settings on my computer or yahoo messenger and I just don't know what is causing the problem

Hi, Did you recently install some update that is related with Yahoo Messenger??? Maybe if you install some update, options are set to default... Anyways, did you check options to see if something has changed???
Hope this will help...

Well, I can only give you advice to uninstall Yahoo Messenger and install it again... maybe it is corrupted...

I've already done that but thanks. I think that it might be my firewall blocking me but I'm not sure yet
