You should be able to choose from the drop down in software. Try reinstalling. HP MediaSmart Webcam Software.

HP also has this page that basically says to check device manager and refresh.

Really hope this helps and GL.

Hey, my HP webcam stopped working a few days ago and I've not been able to get it to work on any chat sites since then. I go to select it and it isn't there, almost as if it isn't installed. Help please?

  1. If you can, unplug the webcam and plug it back in. If not, restart your computer and try accessing your webcam again.
  2. If this doesn't work, you will need to uninstall your webcam drivers/software, and then reinstall the drivers/software.

I can't open HP MediaSmart Webcam

what PC?
what OS? stated,
nobody can help you , unless the whole system is stated,
in details.
guess :1:
it wont work as supposed to because you have added other non HP software related to CAM, and they are in conflict.
remove that conflicting software
or do a HP OS refresh. using HP restore.
