Normal 0 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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Installation


Hi! don't worry with the driver..you can choose it from here..
just click the file...and click " save " to start downloading....using winrar (and or winzip), extract the file and install driver for your web cam

1. a4tech PK-635 web cam (rar) file
2. a4tech PK-635 web cam (zip) file

But first connect your web cam via usb slot on your computer... wait till a message on the taskbar appear: found new hardware..once ask for a driver.. choose one from the driver and install it.

Just follow this step and your web cam will work again.

Please rate this solution if you successfully installed your web cam....thanks..
