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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

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

Camera getting connected and then dis-connected and my photo is coming in negative


Skype is a free software program that allows you to make phone calls through the computer. It also lets you text chat and place video calls. Since Skype is designed for use with web cams, it has the capacity to take snapshots both of you and of the person to whom you are talking in a video call. Plug your web cam into your computer and make sure it is on, open Skype, click on the "Skype" menu, select "Change your picture," and then click "Take Video Snapshot." After that, you can decide whether you want to keep the picture or trash it. Use this option if you want a picture that people can see in Skype almost immediately and don't want to bother with downloading or uploading anything. b>

I don't know how to turn the web cam on, on my Acer 500 tablet


There are times when you might need to snap a photo or record somehome video with your PC's webcam. Mac users have PhotoBooth at theirdisposal, while Linux users can always count on the amiable Cheese.Unfortunately (and surprisingly), Windows users are left in the dust.Most of the purchased laptops and netbooks do come pre-installedwith Cyberlink Youcam, but it's not free and you won't have it once youformat your system (unless you've an HP computer). For the rest of us, there are some very unusual yet useful tools that'll do the job just fine.
Windows Live Movie MakerWe start with unusual tool #1 - Microsoft's own Windows Live MovieMaker. As its name suggests, WLMM allows you to create casual moviesand personal videos from an input stream of photos , music and videos.For what it's worth, it can also record and create videos from yourwebcam.
Download and install Movie Maker from here,and launch it from your Start menu. Now click on the "Webcam Video"button on the ribbon, and Movie Maker will turn on and show yourwebcam.
moviemaker.pngrecord-webcam.pngYou can then record to your heart's fill and Movie Maker will createa nice video for you. To get photos, you have to split the video intoframes and extract the required frames from it.
Media PlayersThe 'geekier' media players, like VLC and Media Player Classic, canstream directly from your webcam which you can then record usingbuilt-in functionalities.
Media Player ClassicLaunch Media Player Classic, and press Ctrl + V (or go to File ->Open Device). Choose your webcam, set your audio source to "Videocapture device" (you can use your built-in microphones, but I alwaysgot a very loud static-like noise from it), and click OK. Media PlayerClassic will now stream your webcam, which you can then record usingCapture Settings (press Ctrl + 8, and tweak your settings).
media-player-classic-webcam.pngcapture-settings.png VLC PlayerIn VLC, press Ctrl + C (or go to Media -> Open Capture Device),and choose settings as shown in the screenshot. As with Media PlayerClassic, you might want to turn off the audio to avoid the irritatingnoise. Once VLC shows your webcam, you can either record it (asdetailed in this post) or simply take snapshots using Video -> Snapshot.
vlc-webcam.png Windows (Itself!)When your webcam is connected via USB, Windows will show it as aseparate device under Computer (My Computer in XP). You can also findand launch it from Devices and Printers in Windows 7. Windows allowsyou to take snapshots from USB connected webcams.
Cameroid (all platforms)Cameroid is an online webcam appthat offers PhotoBooth-esque effects and allows you to save yoursnapshots, or share them online. The app is Flash-based, yetsurprisingly lightweight and easy-to-use. There must be numerous othersimilar webapps, so do let us know if there is anything else that youuse.

Yawcam (Yet Another Webcam Software) allows you to stream a live broadcast from your webcam or DV camera. In addition to streaming video, the program can also save captured snapshots to a local file, upload them to a remote FTP server or serve them via the built-in web server. Furthermore, a motion detection feature allows you to automatically start capturing snapshots or perform other actions whenever the software detects any motion within the monitored area. Other features include optional text overlays, timestamps, motion detection mode, a built-in scheduling engine, password protection, image-to-movie conversion and more. Yawcam can optionally run as Windows service. hope this helps

I have the same sort of problem...kinda..lol. My Vtech sorta 'cuts out' when there is noise at my hosue. The person I'm talking to can still hear me but I can't hear them. If my son starts crying or there's any other loudish type noises on my end, it's like the phone is trying to cutout my background noise, but all it's cutting out is the person talking to me. It's not that the noises in my house are loud and I jsut can't hear the person I"m talking to, b/c if i cover the mouth peice then no matter how loud the sound in my house is i can still hear the person i'm talking to but I HAVE to keep the mouth peice covered. It's really annoying!

The problem seems to be with your friend's setup, and possibly yours. Try adjusting mic levels and volume levels to where they don't interfere with each other. Ex.--you talk , they hear you at a volume that is too loud and it gets into their mic, creating a loop....feedback. You do the same too. Trial and error. Hope this is helpful.

Windows error " Please turn on the camera"


Your lap top should have the necessary programming already installed.The cam is normally used in video,film or video chat format.When you have a video link on MSN MESSENGER,you can click on the video call to a contact,and even though they have no camera,they will get a video picture link of you from your camera but you will only be able to talk to each other,as you will get no picture as they have no camera.Get windows live messenger 8.5 and use the video link with your contacts.

dude that is creepy, and weird. But what I think is, i think you were so into playing call of duty,
you were talking to yourself. It was probably so awesome your brain got caught up in it and you did'nt know what was goin on. This happens to me when i'm playing halo 3. i'm so into it, I don't know what i'm doing. it's like my mind takes over if i really get into a game.
