Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

A webcam compatible with Skype, Live Messenger etc

Good morning folks
I'm looking to buy a webcam to use primarily with Skype, but also (and ideally ! hey, I don't ask for much, do I ?) with other live apps.
I almost clicked "Buy" on a Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 but before I did, I Googled to see if there were any known issues....and hey presto, I see a load of users experiencing problems.
I'm based over in Ireland and am considering either a Microsoft, Trust, Logitech or Creative webcam (purely on brand trust)
Can I get a recommendation please ?
Many thanks
C

Deont know how to use my webcam


first you have to have the software to use it, most folks use the free windows live messenger, or yahoo messenger, AOL also has that capability. Skype is a free video telephone service that will allow you to do video calls to other people that have the skype installed on their computers. Some webcams come with software that allows you to take snapshots and make short movie/videos. Many websites (especially dating sites) will acitivte your webcam and allow you to make a video to share on the site, or you may even be able to live video chat with other people on the site if you choose. the cams can be a lot of fun and get you into a lot of trouble, have fun, but be careful. people can record what they see you doing.

How to install that web cam model PK 635 M in windows 7.. coz evrytime i open my cam in yahoo messenger it say that no camera was found in the system


http://www.driverstock.com/a4tech-pk-635-driver-download/1-3-4200/index.html

I noticed that there is no Windows 7 specific driver for this older camera. This can be problematic as the older XP drivers sometimes work and sometimes do not work in Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit.

Good luck on this compatibility issue with Yahoo Messenger. Maybe try Skype or Windows Live Messenger for video chat.

What sites can I use for my webcam that are compatible with mikomi DC-7130. I would have liked Skype but can't get it to work. Easy language please ! I'm completely computer illiterate


Hi,

You can use your webcam with every site if you set up it correctly in the program that you will use such as skype, yahoo messenger, msn messenger etc.

First of all you must install it correctly to your PC.

And then set up it in the program that you used. You say that you would like to work in skype. You can set it up in skype as I described below:

Run skype and log in.

In the top skype menu, select "Tools" and "Options".

In the new window, click on the "Audio settings" and see the microphone and audio is set up as your video/audio card in your PC. If not set up it. I mean you must see the name of your PC2's audio/video card in there not the name of webcam.

Click on the "Video settings" on the left menu. Set up the person list that you want to let you see in skype. You can select only the person who is in your friend list can see you.

Then test it.

I hope it helps.

When buying a web cam do you get one compatible with the tower or the screen...for example my friend has a sceptre screen and a dell tower


The screen is not an important consideration
He needs to be looking for a webcam:-
1) With a built in mic
2) Suitable for his OS - especially if he has Windows 7
3) Compatible with the chat programs he wants to use it in . For example Skype, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger

Webcam recommendations


Normal 0 I recommend you use the Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 or VX-6000. It is the best for getting support and drivers. It cost around $38.00 for the VX-3000.
Microsoft cameras mentioned are good for use with all the Windows Operating Systems through Windows 7 their new Operating System.
I will give you some infomation you can save for future use if you buy any web camera.
Save this for future use:
Disconnect 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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.

    1. Windows Live Messenger:
Go to this site http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger and download 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
