Webcam on Skype

Hi,

I have a webcam built into my laptop. When talking on Skype to my gf, I have no problems with sounds etc and we can talk for ages if I dont have my webcam running. When I turn it on we can both see each other but within 2-3 minutes the call becomes disconnected, this happens 95% of the time.

Please, please help....

Many thanks

Help I have a webcam built-in to my fujitsu laptop, how does it turn on??


Webcams are either started by their specific programs or they are used by the IMs that you use. To use with the IM you must configure the IM (Skype, Yahoo Messenger, MSN or whatever you have) from their respective Tools->Options->Video to use this webcam as the default camera. Also in the Audio option you must use the built in mic of this laptop as the default mic.
Once you have done this then everytime you use the IM for video talk or just talk then the webcam and mic or just the mic will be used automatically.
While if you use the specific program to use the webcam then the webcam and mic will be used without any configuration. However, you must configure things like mirroring and colors etc so that when you move to the left the video should show you moving left and not otherwise.
Happy Holidays.

How do i turn on webcam on a acer 3690 laptop


The built in webcam is always on. You just have to run the application, 1) that was pre installed on it to take videos using it. and 2) while using an IM like Skype or Yahoo Chat etc. But they have to be configured to use it when you start a talk session with the other party. In Skype go to Tools->Options->Video. Here you can configure your webcam to startup when you are talking on Skype. And start video talk.

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Start Skype.
On the Tools menu, click Options.
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
Select your webcam as the default microphone. (If it has a built-in mic)
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
Select your webcam as the default.
Click 'Save'.
Test webcam by making a Skype test call.

Using a webcam


Yes. You need to use the same program in order to talk with each other. Also, in my experiences with webcam setup and the different program carriers to use for best picture quality, I use Skype. I tried AOL, Yahoo etc. and Skype worked the best. You can have the best webcam on the market, but if you don't have a good carrier, the picture quality and sound can still be affected. Since your friend already has MSN, try that yourself and see if it works out for you. Good luck!

Web cam use with skype


When you sign in to Skype, you'll need to check your settings (the tab where you change your wallpaper, sounds, privacy, etc. You'll find an area for configuring your webcam, just follow the directions and make sure you give Skype the permission to start your webcam. You can also change the settings of your webcam to automatically respond to programs you choose. It's a great cam, I was able to talk to my husband and kids very easily from Sweden via Skype in February, the sound is very good and the pictures are not bad at all. I also can talk to my friend in Sweden, now that I'm home and it works great.
