How to install it?


Hi,

Go to the "Start" menu and "Control Panel" and click on "Device Manager. Proceed to "Imaging Devices" and "HP Webcam."

Click on the "Driver" tab. Update the driver. Click "Search Automatically" for updated driver software.

Open "Quick Play" and click on the music, video and picture icon on the bottom of the screen.

Under "Source" click "USB Video Device." Your webcam should be activated. Press the red button on the bottom of the screen to record video. Press it once more to stop. Click on the camera icon to take a snap shot image.

Go to "Public," "Public Videos" and "HP Webcam" to view your videos. Go to "Public," and "Public Pictures" to view your pictures.

Thanks,
Bhautesh.

I have an hp dv9000 and the web cam only works on yahoo instant message. how can it be made to work on it's own?


To turn on an HP webcam:
1. Go to QuickPlay (press the blue-lighted button above the F3 key (or next to the power button)).
2. When QuickPlay shows up, there is a row of six icons across the bottom of the screen: click on the second one from the left (the one with the photo-movie_reel-music_notes).
3. A window with three 'frames' shows up. On the left frame there are six items: the fifth one should say 'HP Webcam'. Click on it.
4. The webcam's blue LED light should now be turned on. There should be a rectangle with dimensions of ratio 1:2 which should show what the camera is sensing.
5. There is a row of seven buttons above that rectangle: the seventh is for taking snapshots and the sixth for recording videos.
6. Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Public Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Public Videos\HP Webcam
sometimes it doesnt say "hp web cam" it says "usb video device"

HP have a good support system and you can download the manual from there - go to the website and identify your webcam

Built in webcam problem


The pictures you take cannot be directly taken from the HP webcam program. Instead, you can delete any photos you take to send them to the recycle bin. From there, the photo files can be dragged outside of the bin. Then you can do whatever you would like to with the photo files.
