My laptop is presario CQ42 Notebook PC.In built webcam is there but till date I could not make it operational.I want to talk through webcam. Please give me the details instruction by which I can access...


A webcam (web camera) allows you to share live video images of yourself (or things near you) while you are instant messaging with a friend.

Start your webcam during a conversation, or invite friends to tune in by broadcasting a link to your webcam as your status.

When you set your status to "View My Webcam", that means you are inviting friends to tune in to your broadcast.

Friends can click on your status message to indicate that they want to see your webcam.

You will then receive your friend's request to view your webcam which you can accept or deny.

When i click view webcam it says cam not installed or cam is occupied by other user


what you want to do is to try turning off your computer and unplugging the main power cable in the motherboard that is 16 or 18 pin and reconnect it and turn on your pc if that doesn't work try reinstalling your webcam software and make sure that you use the factory settings when you install it or the last thing that you can try is to reinstall your OS and make sure that there are not 2 accounts logged in at the same time...

How do you turn on a built in webcam on a eee pc netbook


The drivers for the webcam should be pre-installed on the netbook so that the webcam turns on whenever a program needs to use (e.g. msn chat).
If you want to take pictures (like photo booth on mac) you can try the website cameroid.com/.
If you want to use the webcam to record video you can follow this tutorial (http://www.wikihow.com/Record-from-a-Webcam) on wikiHow about recording to Windows from a webcam.
I hope this helps you out!

You can activate your live webcam broadcast by making user Id in Skype. You can also do this with live video chat option on Google. Note that the PC you want to video chat is connected properly with your webcam.

I have a dell laptop with a built in web cam. how


Hi,
Please make sure that your dell's webcam is turned on.
yahoo messenger webcam 1. Turn on Yahoo Messenger and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already. 2. Click the Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting. 3. While you are talking to a friend click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window. 4. Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active. 5. Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams. Others: *1. Use the 'Super Webcam' mode when you want to send and receive high-quality images and feeds. Broadband makes it possible to see one another in very high resolution, although even with high-end broadband your computer may slow down a bit because of the amount of memory and processing power this requires. *2. Click 'Webcam' followed by the 'Who's Watching Me' button to see which of your friends is receiving your webcam's feed.

How to use web cam


How does a webcam work?There are two different ways to use a webcam at home — through e-mail and with instant messaging programs.
E-mail your video filesTouse a webcam with e-mail, first launch the software that comes with thecamera. Depending on the model, the process of e-mailing and recordingyour video messages may vary. Press Start or Record to begin the videomessage. Click Stop and then preview the video. You can then clickE-mail or Send, which will automatically open your default e-mailprogram (Outlook 2007).
When sending a video e-mail, the longerthe video message recorded, the bigger the attachment will be, so makesure the recipient’s computer can handle the size. The recipient of thee-mail does not need special software to see your video message; he orshe simply chooses to open the attachment and the mini-movie will play.
Instant MessagingA popular way to chat with webcams is in “real-time” with instant messaging programs such as Windows Live Messenger. Note that both ends must have a webcam to chat visually.
Duringa chat, there will be an option to start the webcam right on thescreen, or under the Options or Tools pull-down menu. In Windows LiveMessenger, click Actions > Video > Start a video chat. If youhappen to have a Microsoft LifeCam, starting a video chat is eveneasier.
The Windows Live Call button is similar to speed-dialingon your phone. Pressing the Call Button — located at the top of theLifeCam — will automatically bring up your buddy list, showing youwhich contacts are online. Simply pick one and start your video chat.
Youcan also blog your webcam photos. For example, the LifeCam one-touchblogging feature allows you to take a still photograph with yourLifeCam and post it directly to your Windows Live Space blog. Instantshow and tell, if you will.
To show off your favourite webcam pics, head to the Windows Live Spaces homepage, click Create your space, and start expressing yourself!
Helpful hintsBefore you start using your webcam, follow these tips on security, operation and webcam etiquette.
  • It’s highly unlikely — but not impossible — that someone would try tohack into your webcam to tap into the conversation or use the webcam tospy on you, says Payette. Sending recorded video messages via e-mail ismore secure than real-time Internet chatting.
  • Here’s alittle-known fact about some webcams: the user has the option to turnon a motion sensor function that transforms the device into a “nannycam” so it’ll begin recording once it senses movement.
  • Don’t expect terrific video quality. It’s often possible to adjust theresolution by toying with the webcam’s software settings. But thehigher the quality, the choppier the video frame rates.
  • Some webcams require an additional microphone to record audio, so check before buying.
  • Adjust your camera’s focus, point it towards your face and, mostimportantly, look right into the “eye” of the webcam so your friends onthe other end see more than just your forehead.
  • Webcam netiquette and dress are just like real-life: be polite, be courteous, and wear something casual but presentable.

Unistall Windows Live Messenger
Erase the installation folder and this (XP): .\Documents and Settings\All Users\WLinstaller (or something that begins with WL and sound like that)
in Vista is in .\ProgramData\
REBOOT: REALLY IMPORTANT, I DID IT WITHOUT REBOOT AND DIDN'T WORK
After reboot, reinstall.

Webcam video delay


when do you recieve the delay when using a program over the internet or? Cause a webcam will naturally gain a delay when recording or broadcasting over the internet. I do a online webcast radio show, and after 20 minutes you have a 15-20 second delay which gets bigger as time goes on.
