Unable to use camcorder's built-in microphone with PC

I have just bought a MXT DV7000 Digital Camcorder, can this be used similar to a webcam using the USB connection? I have been able to get a video or live connection however I am unable to use the microphone - very confused about why?

I believe it can. I have been reading the user manual to the device and have read chapter 10. PC Cam Mode.

Currently, I'm charging the battery. And once that's done, I'll be testing it out for that purpose.

I'll give you the results once that's done. Stay tuned.

Try NOT connecting your camcorder to your computer.

The best way to download videos from your camcorder to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camcorder to the computer, and won't run down your camcorder's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy videos from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any video cataloging program, such as iMovie on Mac or Windows Movie Maker on Windows.

The problem of my camera is that no sound appear when i record a video..how can i solve this problem,thanks.


Hi music_divina ,


This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.

Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.

So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.

If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.

All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.

Hope this helps ...:)

My PC cannot detect the camcorder (GR-D70AG).


Try and see if the driver software needs to be installed , if so use the CD that came along or download from the web.
since you have not confirmed the make/model , unable to find a site to suit your camcorder

Can samsung Digimax 4010 be used as a web cam


To find out you should check on the Samsung website.

1. Navigate to http://www.samsung.com/au/.
2. Select Troubleshooting from the Support drop down menu, located top/right of screen.
3. In the Search product support field, type Digimax 4010. (NOTE: Check that it is 4010 and not 401). Press <Enter>.

Look at anything which appears to be relevant. I have quickly scanned the manual for the 401 and couldn't find anything that was related to using it as a WebCam however, SAMSUNG provided the following information to the question:

  1. Connect the USB cable to the camcorder and the PC.
  2. Power On the Camcorder and put in REC Mode. Windows will detect the device. (If you are using a DuoCam, you must use the Camcorder side.)
  3. Launch Messenger or other webcam software.
  4. If using Messenger, click on the Webcam Button in the message pane of the "contact" with whom you wish to share video. Read the agreement and click OK.
  5. Your streaming video will begin.
I hope this helps. Regards,

How to make a camcorder with a webcam


You will need:

A Camcorder (Firewire or Analog)
A Firewire Card (For Firewire Camcorder)
A Video Capture Card or TV Tuner (For an Analog Camcorder)

A way to connect the Camcorder to the corresponding cards.

The Eagletron TrackerCam Software.
Go to trackerCamhttp://www.trackercam.com/TCamWeb/download.htm
to download it, it is a free download. You need additional hardware to get full use of the software, but for a basic webcam this software is enough.Active WebCam captures images up to 30 frames per second from any video device including USB, analog cameras, TV-boards, camcorders, and from network IP cameras.

The program performs simultaneous recording and broadcasting from unlimited number of cameras.

WebcamDV allows you to have "the best quality webcam in the world:"

If you own a DV camcorder, or are about to buy one, wouldn't it be cool if you could use all its features by making it the world's best web cam? WebCamDV is a utility which runs in conjunction with your webcam software application. It lets your digital video camera with all its expensive features, act like a webcam! Imagine, a webcam with 600X zoom, auto focus, stereo sound, auto stabilizing, night vision, high quality optics, and more, depending on your camcorder.

DVDriver lets you iuse your camcorder as if it were a regular webcam:

DVdriver is a software tool that lets you use your camcorder with any software that works with webcams. It works by fooling Windows into thinking that your camcorder is just an ordinary USB webcam.

Use your camcorder with the full range of webcam software available today. Just plug your camcorder into your PC's Firewire port, run DVdriver and start the software you want to use.

What software do you use to turn your camcorder into a webcam?

Nikon Coolpix P2 digital camera, can i use it as webcam?if yes please write me how can i d it, do i need any software for it.write me email on hellosajjad@gmail.com


We get this question alot. Not very many digital still cameras can actually be used as a webcam. This is mostly due to the lack of drivers for it. [url=http://esupport.sony.com/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=380&mdl=DSCS80]SONY does have a tutorial for using some of their models as a webcam[/url], but my question is, with focusing issues, why would you?

But for now, I don't think so. Better to try getting your camcorder to perform that function.

Or pick up the Creative's LiveCam Optica AF webcam.
Sensor: 2 megapixel sensor
Lens: High quality precision lens
Microphone: Built-in adaptive array microphones
Highest Still Image Resolution: 8 megapixels 3200 x 2400
Highest Video Resolution: 1600 x 1200
Focus: Auto
Interface: High-Speed USB 2.0 (bkwd compatible with USB 1.1)

$129.99

This will perform many of the functions you want in a webcam from a still camera and is designed as such.

The A520 (and I guess all Powershot cameras with RemoteShooting capability) can be used as a webcam. You only need a screen capture software, like Camtasia Recorder from the Camtasia Studio and Canon's own software, Camerawindow -> Remote shooting. You only need to start these programs, enable the Liveoutput option in the Camtasia Recorder, place the capture frame over the Remoteshooting window and start recording.
