    Hello all!

    I'm as fresh as they come when using PlayBook. Attempting to use the AOL AV video chat. When I'm trying to start the chat process, I'm unable to 'allow' AOL to initialize and start my camera. Any ideas how to start or allow the camera?

    Thanks very much.

    Just zoom in and click allow. I took me a bit to figure that out. You can interact with that Window.

    Yes, I have zoomed in and selected allow. After this step there seems to be no activity and definately no camera start.

    The window that I'm able to interact with only has one tab with the picture of the round webcam, not two tabs with also the other camera as seen in the pictures you've posted. Do you happen to know why?

    Cheers.

    Try clearing all in the browser, close it and then try again.

    You may have private browsing turned on. In the top right of the browser do you see a mask symbol?

    Yes, I do. I had no idea what that symbol was. I'll try de-activating that.

    Cheers.

    Thanks, all for the help. Problem is rectified.

    Does anyone have a good link of how to set up a wireless home network on a PC and then use the PlayBook with file sharing?

    Cheers.
