I'm not entirely sure I understand how the acer crystal webcamera application works. I go to "my computer" > "crystal eye webcam" and it opens up nicely and everything, and I see the picture fine and all... but is there no settings for my camera? I can't change, for example, brightness/contrast/color? I can't find settings. Also, I can take pictures with this thing, but can I not record video as well? I honestly have no idea what I'm doing.

ok this problem is caused by the wrong drive installed for the Crystal Eye Web cam.
even thoguh the camera shows that it is installed, the application looks for a specific one for the model you have. Unfortunatly Acer used 3 models of the camera without telling you which you have and calls all of them "crystal eye web cam"
go to acer.com select their support section and download all driver and applications available for the camera. you will need to try then 1 at a time til you get the one that works for your system
