Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

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.

I need yahoo messenger vioce and video call setup on my dell 3521


If you own a web camera or if your Dell computer comes with a built-in web camera, you can complete a video conference on your computer.
There are a variety of free chat programs that provide free video messaging such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger or Google Chat.
With these programs, all you will need to do a video conference is add the person you wish to conference with to your buddy list.

Download and install a messaging software program such as Skype, Yahoo or Google Chat if you do not already have one installed on your Dell computer.
No matter which messaging program you use, the video call or conferencing feature works the same.
Launch the messaging software on your Dell computer.
Click on your buddy list or contact list.


Click on the contact with whom you'd like to video conference.
If he isn't one of your contacts, you will need to add him to your messenger contact list by clicking on "New" and then "New Contact."

Click on the contact name and select "Video Call."
You will now have a video conference call on your Dell computer.

How do you get to the webcam?


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

Sometimes webcams do not have a program installed. Go 1. Start>Control Panel>Scanners and Cameras and there you can test the webcam signal here. 2.

Here's a sollution:
1. Click on Skype Menu Tools -> Options.
2. In General section on the left press Video Settings.
3. Check Enable skype video check box
4. Check Star my video automatically when I am in a call check box
5. Select webcam from the drop-out menu
6.You may check webcam settings by pressing button Webcam Settings
7. If you can't see your video in rectangle on the right, check whether your webcam is correctly installed (driver) and connected to the PC.
8. Check Automatically receive video... from anyone or only people in my Contact List check box.
9. Save your changes

Also you might need the latest version of DirectX to use skype video at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en

How to connect webcam to skype


hi somecraic, some webcam are plug and play and comes with driver, just plug the usb connector to your pc usb port and your pc start to install new found hardware, and when the installation wizard window come out, and when it ask for the driver, insert driver, just follow the instruction. And when its done, open your skype, click the video and its done.

Otherwise, best thing to do is check your manufacturers website for FAQs.
