If the web camera came with an installation disk, use the disk to install drivers then plug the web camera in a USB port. The computer should recognize it. If it is properly recognized it will work with all applications that support a webcam (Skype, MSN, Google chat..) If it is not recognized and you do not have an installation software, you should go to the manufacturers web site to download appropriate drivers.
Here’s a very useful free tip that will let you use your Mobile Cam as Web Cam. All you need is a mobile (preferably Nokia) with a camera and some third party application to use your mobile as web cam. Pre-requisite is both your mobile as well as your system must have Bluetooth. First search for some applications which allows you to use your mobile camera as web cam.Wwigo and Mobiola are my favorite applications for this purpose.Just install Mobiola on your system and after that send the sis file to your mobile.Install Mobiola on your mobile also. Switch on Bluetooth on your mobile as well as system. Open Mobiola application on your system.You will see a Ready message. Now Open Mobiola application on your mobile and connect to the system. Thats it ! Now you can very easily use your Mobile Phone Camera as Webcam and enjoy video call and other things
Do u mean your web cam doesn't even get recognized or it doesn't work properly? Like what message you are getting when you try to access your web cam through your application.If it says no web cam detected,then make sure you have installed the proper drivers for your web cam model.
Hi! don't worry with the driver..you can choose it from here.. just click the file...and click " save " to
start downloading....using winrar (and or winzip), extract the file and
install driver for your web cam
Do you have a fire wall running on your PC. If so disable your firewall and check to see if the web cam starts. If this is not the case do you have any type of internet child protection software installed?
