Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8400 Digital Camera
You don't need any software to use your camera.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

I also needed software...I contacted the Vivitar people and they said the camera interacts "automatically". I have been able to download pics but it NEVER works as easy as just going to the Windows Photo Gallery...
This is truly a pain! sorry!

Like all other Digi camera the provided software is not required to transfer images to a Windows computer
The computer will do this-
plug in the camera set to upload the computer will put up the Camera/scanner Wizard and asked where you want the images to go.
No Software Required

Below is the manual for your camera. If you connect your camera to your computer, it will automatically inntiialize. You can use the software allready on your computer to download the pictures.

There is no software required for your camera to work in the windows Me/2000/XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X, and Desktop LX . Driver software is required only for windows 98 for other it should work fine .
Hope this helps.

You can't. The 8400 was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card. It was not designed to stream videos live to another device.
