How to remove auto brightness feature?


webcam displays colours b> Webcams are useful in both personal and business functions, from video chatting to video conference calls. When your webcam displays strange colors, it is usually due to a problem that is easily fixed even without advanced technical abilities. By trying at-home solutions before sending the computer or camera in for service, you can save time and money.

Lighting
Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu. On a Mac, effects for the built-in iSight webcam can be changed in the Effects 1 and 2 menus in the Photo Booth application. Hope this helps.

Lifecam vx3000 fails to show caller on screen


Hey,

Displaying the Caller is not related to your computer, if the other person sees you and you can see yourself then the problem is not on your computer its most likely on the other persons computer.



Thanks and good luck.

Can't see me during night time even there's is light


Several factors determine onscreen size of a video image produced by a Webcam. The actual Webcam hardware may be limited to a maximum resolution. The percentage of your screen filled by a Webcam image will be a factor based on your desktop resolution and the maximum resolution of the Webcam image. A third factor impacting image size is available bandwidth Webcam software may also play a role in determining image size, but in most cases the software is only limited by the Webcam output. There are several ways to optimize your results to make sure you send a Webcam image viewable at the highest resolution acceptable to relatives on the other end, while also optimizing your system to maximize available screen real estate with inbound images from relatives.
Webcam hardware is often a big limiting factor in determining maximum image size. Most Webcams on the market today output a maximum 640x480 image, which easily fills a television screen. Any of the Webcams currently available from Logitech, Creative, Apple, D-Link or the numerous niche companies marketing Webcams will support 640x480, although some produce better results than others. If you have a Digital Video camera capable of doubling as a Webcam, you may get a 720x480 maximum image size. Apple's iSight camera and some of the higher end Logitech cameras using CCD instead of CMOS image sensors produce excellent images at 640x480 in well-lit rooms.
Knowing 640x480 is the maximum image size, don't expect incoming video to fill your screen if you have your resolution at 1024x768. The graphic below is shows the relative portion of a 1024x768 screen filled by a 640x480 image at 50% of actual size. If you want the incoming video to fill your screen, reset the resolution of your monitor to 640x480 to properly accommodate the incoming video feed. This assumes your relatives are capable of sending 640x480 video from their end. If their sending limitation is 320x240, the best you can hope for is a video filling 50% of your 640x480 screen.

Skype


A few suggestions... as the problem can be anything at this point.

1. Do you have a firewall? Is the firewall blocking skype from receiving video? (http://www.skype.com/help/guides/firewalls/)

2. Do you and the other caller have the latest version of skype? Same version for each of you.

3. Check the other callers configurations. As he/she might be able to preview themselves in the "Preview Window" for their webcam but he/she might not be sending video to you.
