I'm trying to use my Web Camera for Skype calls and video. I've used it before the picture is clear to me .... the person on the otherside see a bit of picture for just a minute, and then we lose...

this could be the comparability with the webcam. Since i am assuming the webcam is external, it might be a driver or not work with skype. you can always see yourself, but that doesnt mean it will work on the other side.
also because you pay for fast internet or have it doesnt mean you will get it.

you can see what speed you are having

Can JVC GZ-MG155EK be used as webcam?

I fed the analogue output of the camcorder into a little VideoExpress box and thence to the USB input. Then I downloaded the free software Splitcam, and I now get the camcorder's output showing in the Skype screen. The next step is to find another Skype user to try it out with!

Failure using camera as webcam

Step 1: The "Tools" menu of Windows Live Messenger

1. Recover Windows Live Messenger in our software if you do not have it yet.
2. Start the installation of the software.
3. Once this is done, go to the Tools menu software.

In this menu, two links are important in order to properly configure your camera:"Setting audio and video" and "Parameters of the webcam."This is the first that we will discuss first and foremost, the second used primarily to adjust the parameters of the image in the secondary stage but we are dealing with. Launch therefore setup wizard and click on "Next".

Step 2: The setting of loudspeakers

1. Select your hardware in the menu.
2. Check the box if you use a helmet.
3. Test finally your sound output in order to adjust the volume.

It is possible that you find in the menu several choices. That means you have several elements in your computer capable of transmitting sound, a dedicated card and your motherboard, for example. In this case, make sure to select well the correct input, what you quickly verify the test by loudspeakers.

Step 3: At the turn of the microphone

1. Select your sound source.
2. Start talking to your microphone.
3. Observe the cursor, if it moves, your microphone is working.

Two remarks on the stage configuration. On the one hand, if your camera has no microphone, you must go through a device that you must annex plug into the pink on your sound card. On the other hand, if your mouse does not work, you may have selected the wrong input device sound. Take particular care in this setting and not leave this page only when the cursor s'agitera,
indicating that your voice is recognized by the software.

Step 4: Turning finally to the image

1. Specify this time the source of the video.
2. Observe the window of return: if your setup is satisfactory, your image should appear.
3. Adjust the frame rendering through the "Option" button.

Sony Handicam as firewire streaming webcam

There is a free program called split cam, that will allow you to take any input (from your firewire) and map it to a standard webcam driver that skype can use.
I know it's a little late, but hope it helps

Fail to get pc recognise my camcorder panasoninvgs 10

plug in the camera and then restart your computer

make sure the camera is in the correct mode (you need it to be in the "PC" position for importing images and in the video recording mode for Webcam function

if you are importing photos then look in "My Computer and if you see "removable disk" or similar your photos are in there somewhere

for Webcam just open MSN messenger and check for a little webcam icon under your avatar

Hope this helps:

Can't use camera as a webcam.

Plug it in using your USB cable (it should have come with the camera) and then put the camera in the movie recording mode

(the red icon showing a film camera)

It should install automatically, if not then restart the computer with it plugged in and then check if its on (you can check by logging into MSN messenger and looking below you avatar, if there is a tiny webcam logo then its working
