Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do i turn on my web cam i just got this one today and i dont know if i plug in on the right or left ..


When your Offspring Technologies CAM30 personal web camera plugged into your computer. It is automatically on when it's plugged, you can use it by having yahoo messenger or skype there it will start or pop up your webcam if you are chatting online. And of course you can also use your webcam from the installed software Offspring Technologies CAM30 Personal Web Camera.

Lost driver


I believe the driver for the IT-105WC might work.
Copy and paste this URL into your browser:

http://www.intextechnologies.com/webpages/download-driver.aspx

Under Driver Downloads look for and click on: PC Web Cam

Click on:

webresource.axd?d=pw-00noiummf0nsm9qivpdtickdml1ym7pufbkxbg0a1&t=633922095951162553 Night Vision 300K (IT-105WC)
Then click on:

webresource.axd?d=pw-00noiummf0nsm9qivpc82stwzmxp8z9ioeza6vdw1&t=633922095951162553 Win XP/Vista. (Give it a minute and be patient for the file to load. It will pop-up when it does.)

How to connect webcam to person.com?


When going from program to program using the same webcam it can 'hang up' on the old program.
To overcome this, reboot the webcam by disconnecting it from the computer for about 30 seconds before opening the new program.
If its a built-in webcam you will have to re-start the computer

Check what Video Device have been selected in the setup. Maybe you have to change it.
If not enought install the camera to another USB port!
