Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have there computer setup properly. 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

How to turn on web cam


Troubleshooting listed on the Toshiba website:
The TOSHIBA Web Camera Application provides you with convenient operations and easy access to:
  • Preview the video that the Web camera is currently capturing, at the same time
  • Support 2D mode, Shutter Glasses 3D mode and Red-Cyan Glasses 3D mode
  • Capture still images
  • Record videos
If this utility or feature is not installed on your computer, you can verify if it is available for your specific model under "Downloads" on the TOSHIBA support web site (support.toshiba.com). Not all utilities are available for every model and operating system. When installing any utilities, install the TOSHIBA Value Added Package first.
To open the Web Cam:
  1. Click the Start menu. On Windows 8, go to the Start screen.
  2. Enter "Camera" into the search field. On Windows 8, type "Camera" while viewing the Start screen.
  3. Click "Web Camera Application" in the search results.
  4. The Web Cam will open and live video from the camera will be displayed.
  5. When you place your cursor over the web cam video window a row of icons appear at the bottom.

I can't find the software for webcam


If you are using Windows XP you can use the Samsung Play Camera program or any Instant Messenger application such as Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger.

Another free web cam utility is YawCam which you can also use for what you want.

I cannot get access to window live unless i go through the other users name


If you are using a PC with Windows, I'd suggest uninstalling the program and then complete reinstall. If a Mac, right click on the program under Applications folder, open the lock and enter an administrator password it it's locked, then add the user you have problems with with the + sign and change rights to read&write.

Locked by another aoolication (web cam) please advise


Do you have a fire wall running on your PC. If so disable your firewall and check to see if the web cam starts. If this is not the case do you have any type of internet child protection software installed?
