You use, Quickplay, To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut.
Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)
To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera) Videos and pictures are saved at: Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam Just go to:
and see if you have QuickPlay installed or not.
If yes, then double click on "QP.exe", and that should bring up QuickPlay. And later you can make a shortcut to it.
Hi, Quick play would not work in Windows 7. When upgrading from Vista to Windows 7, some media programs are no longer compatible and will not be found in your Start menu. HP provides replacement programs for QuickPlay and other media programs with Windows 7 MediaSmart software. Plz go to below link and you will get all appropriate software?s of HP Mediasmart. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01929858&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN In this link you need to download the drivers used in HP mediasmart webcam and all other stuffs. If you find this helpful then Plz vote for me..Dreamkam
You probably simply need the correct "Codecs" you need to find out the Movies extn... ie some are whatevername.MOV or whatevername.WMV etc. Once you know this then you can get the "Codec" that will allow player to work with it. Simply Google for it.
Your video device cannot be detected because of the reason that you havent installed the driver for your webcam.
After you install the drivers, you can now use the webcam. If you want to be sure if you have installed properly the webcam. you may see a Videodevice when you open your My Computer. if you have windows xp or vista installed .
Press the QuickPlay button (normally located near the display) on the notebook PC to open the QuickPlay application.
If this takes you to DVDPlay instead of QuickPlay, then you are probably not using an HP Pavilion notebook and you do not have QuickPlay installed. You should skip this test and go to Test the webcam using YouCam instead.
Alternately, click Start , type QuickPlay in the search field, and select QuickPlay when it becomes available to open the QuickPlay application.
Click icon, and double-click HP webcam in the Source column.
The input from the webcam displays on the screen.
Click Record in the QuickPlay window to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
By default, the file is saved in a public folder, and the date is used as the name of the video file.
For example: C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam\webcam_20070228_1540.mpg .
The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by QuickPlay or other media programs.
Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the QuickPlay window to view the short Webcam file.
If you can view this file, this concludes this test. You should now test with YouCam.
If you have a third-part webcam, see HP Notebook PCs - Testing a Webcam in Vista with QuickPlay for additional information.
Test the webcam using YouCam
To verify that the webcam on an HP or Compaq computer that shipped with Microsoft Vista with Service Pack 1 installed is operating properly, perform the following YouCam test. This test verifies that the Webcam is working and can record or play video files.
Click Start , type you in the search field, and select Cyberlink YouCam from the resulting list.
After a few seconds the program starts and the webcam image should be visible in the main viewing window.
Click in the main control bar to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
By default, the file is saved in the Documents folder, in a subfolder named YouCam, with a generic name based on the date.
For example: Capture_20080327.wmv
To navigate to this folder, click Start , Computer , and then select Documents under Favorites, and then open the YouCam folder.
The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by YouCam or other media programs.
Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the YouCam window to view the short webcam file.
This test verifies that the webcam is working and can record or play video files.
This is a issue recognized in HP Notebooks which are shipped with Webcams earlier. However, latest Notebooks are having this issue resolved.
Basically the issue is that the videos that were recorded using the webcam used to record fast than normal because of which the issue started.
HP had released a patch for this where the Videos recorded using inbuilt Webcam will be solved. However, this is not going to fix the issues with the videos that are already recorded.
You can download the patch from the link below :
Download and save the Patch in the Notebook and double click it once the file is saved to install it.
Restarting the Notebook will complete the installation.
Record any video and check by playing it to confirm.
Hope this helps...
