    I no longer have the CD that came with my GE Easy Cam model 98063. I downloaded the softward off of a web-site called Jasco products. When I try to use the camera in Windows Movie Maker it says "device is not responding". The camera works however on Yahoo IM.



    Is there any assistance you could provide?

This webcam comes with ArcSoft Video Impressions. Once the webcam is installed I would open up Video Impressions, go to New, Capture and click on the little eyeball looking thing for live view. A black screen most commonly is that you are installing a nonVista certified webcam on a Vista machine. If this is the case, this webcam has workaround instructions located at www.jascoproducts.com, support, browse and update Vista and then scroll to the bottom of the page. You will see a PDF that you need to download and follow those instructions. It's not a guaranteed fix as this webcam is not Vista certified, but it may work. If you are getting a VFW driver, you need to go to Microsoft.com and download the latest DirectX. This will give you the video driver you need. I hope this helps!

Video calling not be done


The Acer Aspire netbook line comes with a webcam built in to the display panel. This webcam can be used with any software that can access the webcam, such as a video chat program. The cam is in use only when the appropriate software is loaded, so it's not active at all times. The webcam drivers are installed in your netbook, so it should work with most software.

Install a third-party application, such as Skype or Yahoo! Messenger, that offers video chat features. Launch the video chat or messaging software. Select video chat or video calls from within the application to activate your Acer Aspire netbook camera. The camera should load automatically when you select the right option in your third-party software. The camera output displays on your screen and your chat partner's.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps.

Whenever i log onto Skype or Facebook to video chat it dosent work..when u plug the USB cable in it dosent work like the computer dosetn regonize that its there. so it never works for me.


Make sure your drivers are installed and updated. If you haven't, you can download the driver directly from the company website by clicking here.

I recommend rebooting after the installation finishes, to make sure the system will recognize the driver. If this didn't work, respond back and I we can try some other solutions.

Error during capture error code 800706f8


The very first step is of course to check your webcam connection. Most webcams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in webcams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in webcam. Also try connecting your webcam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).
The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.
It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem.
windows-xp-other-device.jpg If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, it will be listed under Other Devices.
windows-vista-device-error.jpg In either case you can try to update the drivers. Right-click the device, and in the popup menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.
In case no driver for the webcam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.
If this fails, the next step would be to uninstall the software that came with your webcam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party uninstaller.
After uninstalling the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the webcam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your webcam during the software installation.
If the drivers and webcam software are correctly installed, and you still cannot see any video, there can be a problem with the program settings. Most chat and meeting software have a configuration option to select the video source for the webcam feature. If you have multiple devices that qualify for video, you might need to select your webcam device as the source for the webcam feature in that program.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
Lastly, if your webcam's image is not sharp, check to see if it has a focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam is not in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve that problem.
Other picture quality problems with webcams can be addressed by changing the video capture properties for the webcam. Most programs that can use a webcam will have an option to access the properties of the video source, which will bring up the video capture properties window.
video-capture-properties.jpg Do keep in mind that not all settings will be enabled depending on the webcam and the webcam driver installed on your computer. In the example you can see that some settings are disabled. The example shows the video capture properties for an Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
What else to try: download missing webcam drivers! If you are using your webcam for instant messaging with one of the popular chat programs, have a look at EatCam, which allows you to record your webcam chats from MSN, YM, ICQ, Skype, AIM and a few more!

Who do I contact for support if I have additional questions. Please send us an email to support@vchatter.com. Also, our user community is very actively supporting the new users on our Fan Page at http://www.facebook.com/vChatter.
What special software/plug-in do I need to run vChatter? vChatter would work within any modern browser including Internet Explorer (IE), Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari.
The only other thing you need with your browser is the Flash Player Plugin. You need Flash Player version 10 or higher. You could download it from http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/.

or uninstall and install again the app.

Before performing any troubleshooting steps, please try using the Webcam with any other Messenger Applications such as Skype, Yahoo etc.,

I hv yahoo 10 but am not able to activate video calling or even pc to pc calling. how do i start them?


For video calling both parties have to have Messenger 10
For webcam chats your contact can have an earlier version than you
To initiate the video chat click the webcam icon
For webcam > Actions > More Actions - Invite to view

First of all you have to set up your webcam
Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Sometimes you may have to broadcast the 'small image' option from the 'Webcam' menu on the top of your image frames. This happens when one of you is down on resources -its like sending a large photo by email - its quicker if you cut the size down
you can zoom up to 200% from the same menu when the webcam picture comes through

Use the 'Always on top' option from the 'webcam' menu - or your image will disappear under the message window when you type a message

GE MiniCam Pro


I realized that my daughter didn't follow the directions exactly. So I un-installed the drivers and then just like the directions said. I loaded the drivers without the camera plugged into the computer. After the drivers were loaded I rebooted my computer and then plugged the camera in and it worked. Hmmm funny thing that it works when you follow the directions from the beginning.
