I can make and save a video with this camera, but when I try to edit it or upload it, the software I use doesn't support the type of video file. Does anyone know of software that works with this camera, and can anyone help me learn how to compress the video file, maybe to email it as a link to friends/family?
Thanks so much for any insight!

Re: Trying to convert and compress the video files
Recording video with a webcam is not difficult with the right software. If you need to convert it, there are also tons of solutions for that. MediaCoder is a free one, but it depends on your skills and editing requirements.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello! Please first check if your Operating System is compatible with your camera:
Start>right click Computer>Properties and you will enter System where under Windows Edition is name of your Operating System.
The camera you have is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP
If you are running a latter edition of Operating System, then you probably need other camera. I also recommend you contact manufacturer to provide you update if available.
It is good to know that at installing a camera, you need to plug in the camera, insert CD with driver software and start installation (double click on "exe." file within files on the disc: Computer>DVD drive double click, double click on ".exe" file and confirm/allow). Unplug the camera and restart your computer after installing. Then plug in the camera again-should be automatically recognized. Regards!
Sounds like it is working fine, your problems may lie where the camera is trying to save the photos on your computer. can you set the default save location for photos and video?
It may be trying to save them in a location that does not exist
Basically mac does not like USB, it is bad and uses burst of information not suitable to video so FCP kinda ignores the option. It works ok for the transfer of non-realtime info. Can you not use DV to FW. Loads of people are having this issue as MAC have dropped it with the new MacBook to in my opinion force people to buy MBP.
Certianly you can. It's just a matter of getting them uploaded. I actually have a program on my lappy called CyberLink YouCam that will automatically upload any video you make with your cam to youtube. However, I don't use a logitech webcam, mine's integrated.
Regardless, you can do it easily. If I recall correctly when I used a logitech quickcam, the software allowed you to save a video as .avi, which you can upload to YouTube and it will auto convert it to .flv. Research is showing that YouTube will allow the following extensions: .avi, .mov, and .mpg.
Here's a nifty little link that will walk you through the process: http://www.webvideozone.com/public/308.cfm
Right wat ya gotta do is.. take ya photo(s).. then using your Software & Data Transfer Cable, usually USB, you then download the photos from ya camera to your PC's hard Drive, & then usually ya must convert the Photos to a smaller more suitable size.. However most sites explain how big the files should be... and how to "Upload" them to their site.
To perform these actions one must install the camera's Data Transfer Software & Drivers, that came with the camera. OR locate and download the Drivers from the manufacturers web site.
Install the software then reboot, THEN plug in ya USB cable connected to the camera, and then turn on.. it should be "Detected" and it may ask for "Drivers" if so, simply point it in the direction of the Driver Files, usually on ya CD. After the software and drivers are installed, you can manipulate the files as ya wish.
Then you are ready to start using the Uploading Software, from the site required, like say Ebay etc.
This software will ask you for the "Location" of the Photo(s) ya point it to the Photo's location and the Uploading Software will do it all for you from there on...
The link below is for a Photo resizer, that may come in handy.. just download & install.
hope that helped...
