I recently bought a new PC with Vista. I downloaded Yahoo messenger which was working ok until I tried to listen to music in a chat room. A voice error appeared saying " This computer does not appear to have audio input capability or is not configured correctly"
Since I'm new to Vista and didn't have a problem with XP I assume it has something to do with Vista. I had a look at the audio functions and dosn't seem to be anything there that could help.
I understand there is a beta version of yahoo messenger for Vista but I'm not sure if that would be any better.

I installed the Vista Voice Fix 10.00 which included the codec "TSP_codec_install.exe" but this didn't fix the problem. When I go into Yahoo Chat and try the talk button I get " this computer does not support the required audio compression format" When I googled this most of the responses was to install the above codec. There were other possible solutions but it got too confusing to search.
Is it true that Vista has a compatability function for programs installed under XP. I have seen this mentioned before in searches so would this help?.
I have read that Yahoo is yet to bring out a fair dinkum working voice program for Vista, although could be wrong. I on the other hand have tried it and failed, so, I do not use it. A pain in the rear end I know, but maybe it is like that for a reason. Yahoo first thought they would have something ready for Vista by July 2007, then it went to August. Maybe we all need to play the waiting game on this.
Thanks for the comments Yowie. I will continue to work this out although it's not the main focus in my life at the moment. It's one of those annoying things where you want to get it to work just to shove it up Yahoo.
If I do get a solution I'll post it with one of these
