How to use sony DSC-N2 camera as a webcam??

It says on the sony website that i cant use this cam as a webcam! but i am sure it is possible some way or the other... this camera has one feature and that is, i can feed the output of the camera into a tv using its AV plugs.. and if the computer has a tv tuner card, can it work out some way??

Look at the supplied software and try the Yahoo/etc software but beware that most cameras are not built to run as a webcam. The designs are for size and wieght so the cameras tend to overheat and expire. If they don't tout the webcam feature, then you know why.

Before anything else.... you must examine first if your card is not damage, How? Try to test it in the memory card readers or other camera that fit the same memory cards. 
Some other cards do have lock option in the jacket of the card. Try to unlock it. After doing so reformat the memory card in to your cam.

Other option...... Some other cam do have internal memory, if you have the same, configured it out.

I got sony cybershot dsc p 200 model digital camera. But it is not supported as web cam . Please give suggestions to set up the camera as web cam


Many digital cameras support streaming video over the USB connection, to use as a webcam. Unfortunately Sony cameras do not do this; I am confident of this, because they offer a tutorial describing how to make an analogue connection from your camera to your computer, for use as a webcam! (I feel this is a poor solution because few computers have an analogue video-in connection, and not all cameras have a video-out. They would not offer this solution if the USB streaming was possible.)

I'm sorry to tell you that unless you are really lucky and are able to follow Sony's tutorial, your best bet is to buy a webcam and forget using your camera. A whole webcam could easily be cheaper than the cable that Sony suggest you use...

Sony dsc-n2 my video mode is not working properly and also its turn off suddenly


Hi,

The Camera will turn off or will not allow selecting the Movie Recording option when the Battery power is not enough. Please make sure that the Battery is fully charged. Make sure that the battery inserted is NPBG1. You may also try cleaning the terminals of the Battery pack. If the issue persists, try using a different battery pack. If the same happens again, service may be required.


Thanks,

USB Not working =S


Possibly, the cam is in webcam mode or other mode beside camera mode. I have an older sony and there is a mode that doesnt seem to work for me too. Im not next to it so I cant tell you what it is, but look into the setup screen and make sure the camera is in USB mode.
