SOURCE: how to install genius look 1320 v2?

Hi, this is a simple page intended to give you an idea of what is involved in setting up a web cam. It is not a comprehensive instructional manual covering exact procedures, cameras, or software programs. You will have to do some research on your own, and when you select your equipment and software, you need to become familiar with them


Step 1.


Software and Drivers


Once you have your camera, you then have a choice to make; whether to install the software and drivers that come with the camera or not. A driver is a special piece of software that allows your computer to communicate with the camera. Many of the newer cameras are UVC, (Universal Video Class) compatible. This means the camera can use standard drivers which are built-in to your operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Linix) and you don't have to install the drivers that come with the camera. However, some features of the camera may not work without the drivers that come with it. Which features work, depends on the camera. For example, some of my auto focus cameras won't auto focus using the UVC driver, others will. Some cameras have various resolutions that arn't available without installing the drivers that come with it.


The reason I bring this up is because much of the software that comes with some cameras will use a great deal of your computer's processing power. If your computer is already slow, this can make your poor machine even slower. Much of the software included with most cameras contain things that many people never use, such as turning your face into a talking flower or animal, or special services unique to that camera or manufacturer. Having the camera put a gas mask over my face may be fun for some, but will you actually use it? If you are going to use a service (discussed further down the page) and the camera is UVC, then you have the option of not installing the extra software. Check the box or my review pages to see if your camera is UVC. If it is, then try the camera without the software first. If you decide you want the extra features later, you can install the software then. I generally recommend that you don't install any software that you arn't going to use. Every time you install software, your computer is altered by the installation process and removing the software doesn't always set your system back the way it was.

If you decide to install the camera software, or are required to because the camera is not UVC, then make sure you READ the instructions first. Some require that you install the software first, others require the camera to be plugged in first. If you do it in the wrong order, you may not be able to get the camera working at all.


Step 2 Choose a delivery system
How are your images going to get to your viewers? There are basically 3 choices. Scroll further down the page to see the details on each of the following options.

1. Use a web cam service such as Yahoo, AOL or SKYPE or HeloWorld (pay service). This is the simplest system for the beginner. However, this method requires the other person to install the same service in order to see your camera and usually gives the poorest image quality. There are also a number of pay web cam services, but I don't have any experience with them so they won't be covered here.
2. FTP to your website. Use web cam software that uploads pictures to a website via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). This method is more complicated than #1 and you must have your own website which is FTP accessible. This may be the best method if you have a dial up connection, and expect to have more than one person watching at the same time, or your camera will be pointed out a window or at a scene that doesn't change much.
3. In house server. Use web cam software that uses your computer as a web or streaming media server. This is not recommended for the beginner because of security issues and complexity of setup. However, this method can usually deliver the best quality images and can offer a much faster image refresh rate than the FTP method, providing you have a high speed Internet connection.

Step 2 Option 1
Use a service
This is by far the simplist system for the beginner. If you already have an Instant Messenger program such as Yahoo, MSN or AOL, then all you need to do is setup your web cam and activate it inside your Messenger. Check either your Messenger program's help menu or their web site for detailed instructions.

This option works well, but usually gives the poorest picture quality and is reliant on your Messenger host keeping the service available and running smoothly. It also requires anyone who wants to see your camera to have the same service. If you don't have a chat (or IM 'Instant Messenger') program, download one and install it from your favorite service.

Step 2 Option 2
FTP
If you don't already have a web page, or don't know what FTP is about, this is not the best choice for you to start out with. It can get quite complicated initially. Once set up and running, this method works quite well and is easy to operate. However, this is the system that tends to give people the most trouble getting started, especially if you don't have any experience troubleshooting FTP problems. Check my FTP page for more on File Transfer Protocol.

Hope it helps..

Where can I download a driver for genius mini mouse gm-03025a windows 7


I am surprised that Windows 7 would need a specific driver for your mouse. I couldn't find your model number but here is a list of all Genius mouse drivers. Perhaps one will work for you.

PREVIOUSLY USED WINDOWS XP -NEW MOTHERBOARD IN MY COMPUTER- have INSTALLED WINDOWS 7- MY GENIUS COLORPAGE HR 3200 SCANNER NEEDS A COMPATIBLE DRIVER. CANNOT FIND FOR WIN 7


This is unfortunately a common issue with "older" devices with Windows 7 not supporting a compatible device driver:. Your best chance is to install Windows XP in a Virtual Machine under windows 7: the free ''VirtualBox'' virtual machine is what I personnaly use for my incompatible devices.
Hope it helps.

If you go to the Veo website and look under the support section you will be able to search your product and download a driver for your operating system. A vista driver will also work for windows 7 so if the company website only lists a vista driver it will work for windows 7.

Hi, i have a genius nb 300 and cant install it on win7


HI There,

The link below will take you to the latest Driver for your Cam. It is rated to support Vista and as a general rule most Vista Drivers will run a device on Windows 7. The site recommends (and so do I) that you set a System Restore Point before you install the driver so you can turn right around and completely remove the driver from your W7 if it has problems.

I hope it works for you. If it deosn't, please don't trash my rating with a thumbs down because Genius is not enough of a Genius to support W7. :-)

I have recently bought a new computer and i installed the software, but the machine will not recognise the computer, can it be installed on computer with the new windows 7 or do i need an update??


Yes, it can be installed on Windows 7. Check the Futura support sight at www.Futura-support.com and look on the right hand side under downloads. There's a download listed for CE150/250/350, etc, that applies to XP 32 & 64 bit, Vista and Windows 7 32 & 64 bit. Follow the directions CAREFULLY! If this doesn't work for you, I've posted a set of instructions under CE100 solutions for running the CE100 software on Windows Vista/7 by installing a Virtual Machine software on Windows 7 that works regardless of the situation.

The update should work for you perfectly, however. Just make sure you uninstall the Futura software and reboot your machine BEFORE you do anything else and follow the instructions from the website carefully! Good luck!

Webcamera is disabled or has failed.


You will have to get the software for W7 for the web camera, assuming it is available. Find the website of the web camera manufacturers andsee if they have an updated driver. It'll be under 'Support' on the website.

Webcam driver


http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/geniuswebcam-security-dl.html you can get the genius web cam driver from here

This download is the latest driver package released for the Genius VideoCAM Express Webcam. The setup will work under most Windows systems (see above) and installs the VideoCAM v2, version 3 driver package onto your system. The driver numbers are a little confusing - V2 seems to be simply a name change to reflect new features of the entire setup, but the Webcam driver in the package is listed as version 3.0 - hence the official title of 'Genius VideoCAM Express V2 3.0'.

please rate this solution on how it helped you.

many thanks nick
