Face-tracking prob with Quiclcam Pro5000

When I set the Webcam settings to follow me, the webcam tracks my face. But when I shutdown and restart the laptop the face-tracking has returned to off. I'm running XP Pro Logitech says this setting is stored in the registry and they won't supply this info. Have searched the registry but couldn't find any registry entry that could fix this problem. Does anyone have a fix.

Make sure you have installed the latest software from Logitech's website. Be sure to UNPLUG the cam when installing, and ONLY plug it in when it tells you to do so.

Also, what service (msn, yahoo) are you trying to use face tracking in? Keep in mind that MSN, Yahoo, etc have their own camera settings, which may over-ride any default settings.

Of you're on MSN, Logitech has a solution:

I want to disable to auto zoom feature but it will not allow me...every time i set it up it starts to auto focus and zoom...i wish to disable these..any help?thankyou

Zoom :
  • 3 x digital zoom (automatic or manual)
  • Travelling-ZoomTM function : Always be in the frame with this unique feature which tracks your face and even enlarges the field of view if there is more than one person in the frame. All completely automatic, just look at the web cam!
The above tells me that you can have automatic or manual 3x digital zoom. Go to the manual mode for the digital zoom and problem might be solved.

Moving picture

There is a possibility that your camera has technology to "face track"
open up your logitech camera software then check your options or preferences and look for "face tracking" and turn it off

How do i turn off the Automatic Face-Tracking?

Open the options menu for the lifecam on msn (looks like little stars by your display picture), and click on the lil green MSN guy with a box around his head. That will turn the tracking on or off. Good luck!

Logitech Quickcam Orbit MP

It could be one of three things:

Is it making the noise, but not turning, or no noise at all? If it's making noise, but not following, then the gears have stripped (a common problem if you have used that feature alot)

Also, are you using the current software from Logitech's site?

And finally... are you turning on the feature to follow you (i believe its a different setting than the face tracking on the MP). Just poke around the menus, and you're bound to find it. I know it's definitely NOT turned on by default.

1. check your audio properties and see if the volume is on and make sure mute is not checked. 3. try to see if your audio card is messed up by trying a diffrent audio input on your computer 2. remove and re-install using included disk drivers not the windows drivers following the directions carefully.
