Question about Computers & Internet

I have just bought a new hue hd webcam and installed it on my P.C. I use Skype but can only get the webcam to take a photo and not video. I have amcam and the video seems to work perfectly well with this. Any suggestions? I am rather computer illiterate so you might have to be patient.

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype


Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

I bought a new computer and It already has a webcam but I can only use skype. How can I install logitech? Can I use the webcame which came with the computer? I have the disc. Thank you, Elayne Mangad


Hello Elayne, yes you can install the logitech if the disc is for your operating system, if it isn't, you can always download the version for your windows version from them. Always insert disc and only plug in when the install program tells you to, if it doesn't then plug it in when the install has finished.

If your new computer has windows7 it might automatically detect your logitech camera when you plug it in.

If you have both cameras set up you can select which one to use in skype from the video section of the options screen (tools>options>video)

In Skype tool settings check Geneal/ Video Settings - Does your webcam appear here?

In your webcam settings check associated programmes running the webcam.

Your webcam will only run through one programme at a time, it may be that your photo capture settngs are on the webcam - which won't allow skype to use the webcam.

WHEN USING A HUE WEB CAM WITH SKYPE I GET A YELLOW STRIPE DOWN MIDDLE OF SCREEN


Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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.

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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft Life CAm does not work.


Normal 0 Start Skype ThenGo to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.
