Question about Webcams

1 Answer

Girlfriend's webcam is no longer working.

My girlfriend in Hong Kong has an A4tech webcam. It was working before she went home. When she got back, it was not. She tried to reinstall it, but it says the program is already running so she can't. She tried to unistall it, but it won't permit that either. How can she either fix it or shut it off so she can reinstall it?

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

Girlfriend just found old Veo Stingray webcam. Hooked it up and got online to download drivers, but cam dont work and comp dont even register camera as being there.


Veo drivers are not available unless you pay for them. Better to purchase a Microsoft or Logitech web camera because the support the products and keep the drivers software updated.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

maybe you dont have the driver for you webcam.. when you bought it, they shoud've give you a CD for the webcam so you can install and use it on your desktop... if you lost it, try searching for the driver of the webcam and type its model..

When i call my girlfriend on skype it says caller will only recive IMS calls.


This is because either you or she has set Skype dup to behave this way. Open Skype, under tools -> options -> video settings set up to your preferences. Do the same with audio settings too if you want. Your girlfriend has enabled instant messaging service, but not video service.

I need the drivers for a ezonics web cam numbe IV?


If you can live without all the fancy background stuff that comes with some webcams, it is true that Windows (XP) has generic drivers that will work with any USB connected webcam. A GREAT program that I found on the web to use with my cheap, generic, sent from Hong Kong, bought on eBay, LED lit webcam, is called YAWCAM. (Yet Another Webcam software. Goggle that in your browser. It is FREE and gives much control to your cam. If this has been helpful, please rate me accordingly. Thanks and good luck.

HP VGA Webcam problem.


If you go to the front of the webcam, their is the camera surrounded by a dial. Turn the dial until the picture comes in clearly, and when you get it perfect, don't touch it. Just leave it the way it is and your all set. Hope this Helped -CA
