Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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 video 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 be able to see and her 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.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
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

I have a HD5000 that was working till yesterday properly. now i receive the massage in skype that no webcam is connected. also in the HD5000-application itself i have the same massage. who had the same...

I'm assuming that you have tried a different USB socked with the same result. This has nothing to do with the software, it's a hardware fault. You can check that simply by booting from a Linux Live-Cd and see if the webcam is recognized. Most likely it has just failed.
This is unfixable, you will have to buy a new one.

My computer says it can't detact my webcam. everytime I go to it, it says no wecam detected.

The first step will be to check to see that your computer recognizes that anything is detected. to do this you should:
  1. Open your Control Panel (Make sure it's set to "Classic View")
  2. Click on "System".
  3. Go to the Hardware tab and click on "Device Manager".
  4. If your computer does recognize the camera, it should show up under "Imaging Devices".
If it does not, then it should show up under "Other Devices".
  1. Right click on the camera there, and click "Update driver"
  2. Now, follow the on screen instructions, and windows should get your camera working.
If your camera is recognized, but still doesn't show up, then you probable have a problem with whatever program is trying to use it. For that, I would need to know what program that is.

How can i install microsoft lifecam 1.4? give sequence of steps.


You do not need to install MS Lifecan on Windows systems. However if the system is asking you to do so or is not recognizing the webcam then you must. How?

Disconnect the webcam from the computer.

Insert the CD of drivers that came with the webcam, and allow windows to autorun it.

It will ask you if you want to install the webcam drivers. Answer yes and then follow instructions.

Once done then reboot the computer.

Attach the webcam and let Windows autodetect it and load its drivers.

If, however, the autorun does not get activated the from My Computer you must open the CD drive and run either autorun or setup.exe.

After this the procedure is the same as above.

Using GL2 as a webcam

Using the firewire/IEEE cord attach the camera to your computer.  If you are using a Mac it should instantly recognize the external camera when you open iSight or what ever utility you are using to communicate.  If you are using a Windows based computer open MS Moviemaker and it will recognize the camera as well by selecting capture -- once the camera is recognized you should be able to broadcast with it.  If you are using sometimes your video capture interferes with the ability to broadcast.  In that case hook up the camera using firewire, connect to uStream -- grant uStream permission to capture using the camera then you can see the video in your browser window.
