Question about Video Cameras
Tearing my hair out (what’s left of it!!) at the moment. I am trying to install my Panasonic Digital Video Camera NV-GS250 as a Webcam. Panasonic compatibility site clearly indicates that the camera is compatible with my Windows Vista Business Operating System. The camera has two USB functions – Motion DV and Webcam. I have selected each of these and seen pop-ups indicating installation is occurring but that is about it. The purpose, initially is to use the camera as a Webcam with Skype but Skype, whilst appearing to see there is a Webcam, indicates that “Skype did not find the preferred Video Source. Webcam could be in use by another application”. When I open ‘Autoplay’ Panasonic DVC has been added under Devices and set to ‘? Ask me everytime’ but of course this never happens when the camera is connected. When I open ‘Scanners and Cameras’ the Camera is not listed even after ‘Refresh’. When I then ‘Add Device’ I am presented with ‘ Manufacturer – Xerox’ and ‘Model- Xerox Work Centre Pro Scanner’ clearly not Panasonic DVC. Finally when I open ‘Device Manager’ and look at ‘USB Controllers’ ‘USB Composite Device’ has been added, this is removed when Camera is switched off. I have also just connected my Canon Digital Ixus 850 IS and this works a dream with everything operating as expected. So, can you shed any light please before I tear out the rest of my hair. Could there be a problem with Driver compatibility even though I am told ‘You have the latest Driver Installed?
