Acer Aspire - Crystal Eye Webcam won't record video

I have an Acer Aspire 6920 with the built-in Crystal Eye Webcam.

When I first got the laptop, it worked fine. But now, the webcam won't "Record" Video. It will take still pictures and has the delete trash can Icon, but the Record Button is gone. It offers me no option to capture video.

Do I need to update the drivers, or is there a place to get the software for Crystal Eye to reinstall? Or does someone know of good software that I use with this?

The whole reason I bought this laptop was to do instructional videos to upload to the web or burn to disc.

    I have installed the updated/current driver, but that did not fix the problem.



    I guess my question is, does anyone know of a 3rd party sofware that will allow me to use the Crystal Eye webcam to capture video and save it to my hard drive for later editing?



    I am looking for ease of use, good quality recording/output, at a reasonable price (free is good too!)



    Thanks for your help.

Update the drivers. The Crystal Eye is not the best camera out there. I have had to update mine 7 times and only owned it for 3 months

SOURCE: to capture video acer aspire 6920 acer crystal eye webcam builti

you need to download a video capturing device
if your system did not come with one
the built in webcam is exactly that for messaging programs and taking snaps but they can be used for video and this is usually something you need to get on your own
debut is usually a pretty good site

I would first check the path/directory that video is recorded to, uncheck the playback after recording box and if this does not work you need to update the drivers.

Crystal eye webcam for acer aspire 6920G says camera not found


hey, I had the same problem, I've got an Acer Aspire 6920 and I swapped out Vista that was on it for Windows XP

I went to the link you posted but it just goes to acer.com
so I figured I'd try something

if you go to acer aspire 6920 drivers, you can only pick Vista and Windows 7, and not Windows XP

instead, pick 6530 drivers (older acer) and pick the Bison driver:

Install it (with or without installing the previous Crystal eye, doesn't matter, and it will work properly

install the proper driver for your laptop from acer's online support & download centre, most likely the correct driver is the one called Acer Crystal Eye or something like that
