to download the Free AMCAP Video Capture Program.
AMCap v9.20 AMCap is a small yet fully functional video capture application compatible with Microsoft DirectShow. It is based on the sample AMCap from the Microsoft DirectX 9 SDK. AMCap supports still captures to BMP, JPEG and PNG formats and it remembers your Video Input, Video Standard and Video size settings from previous session. It has some nice features like multimonitoring support, zooming, aspect ratio and deinterlacing features.

AMCap is a small and effictive piece of software and definitely worth trying. Hope this will help. Bud

Install the drivers if necessary and restart your computer when the install process is completed. Once the given application is running, move your hand in front of the webcam to make sure it recognizes an image. Move your computer webcam or monitor as necessary to capture the image you want. Click on the specific button for Take Picture, Snapshot or Image Capture. Depending on your Windows operating system, the pictures will be automatically played or viewed by different applications, such as Quickplay or Windows Photo Gallery.

To locate the picture, look under the "Shared Documents" folder or go to the "Preferences" menu in the webcam's application to see where the pictures are saved. b> Taking Pictures Through Online Applications On your Web browser, enter the Web address of an online webcam-application site, such as cameroid or picanom (See links Below). No downloads will be necessary. Click on the "Snap" tab from any of these applications. A viewing area will display and an "Adobe Flash Player Settings" dialog box might appear, alerting you to "Allow" or "Deny" camera and microphone access by this site. Once allowed, a live image of what your webcam sees will display in the viewable area. Select from the list of Effects, Filters, Scenes or Frames if necessary or applicable.
Click on the "Snapshot" icon to take the picture you desire. Once the picture is taken, a menu will display for you to choose your download. Click on the "Download a JPG file" option, then confirm the action by pressing "OK." also make sure you have all software needed

Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

My web cam picture is blurry. How do I sort this?

Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens which can be rotated to sharpen the picture.
Others rely on the software. If this is your situation you need to uninstall the software - disconnect the webcam - Restart the computer and download new software from the webcam manufacturer's website.

There are basically 2 adjustment can be made to focus your webcam, 1st is by the webcam software, try to search in the software any feature that can focus your webcam. The 2nd is the mechanical adjustment on the webcam itself, try to rotate the focus ring (webcam's eye) and see how the picture improvement.

QuickCam Express, blurry, snowy picture...sometimes the picture is totally shaded red


Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens.

This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances.

Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.

Connection Issues:

If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video.

Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed.

Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds.

If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.

Changing Display Adapter Settings:

If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter.

For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher.

To change the color palette please perform the following steps:

Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."

Double-click on the Display icon.

Click on the tab labeled Settings.

In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).

Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.

Low Light Boost:

If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost."

If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software.

To do this:

Open the QuickCam software.

At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.

Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".

Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.

If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.

Click OK when your are done.

Last, make sure that you ae using the latest drivers.

You can upodate them from here.,en?prodcrid=492

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Uninstall and reinstall software, Also try another Usb port. U should also make sure that you are using USB 2.0 the older Usb ports don't have enough power to run camera, If that is the problem you can get a Usb 2.0 card and it comes with external power source, If thats not the problem Can you get into your Cam setting and make sure all the setting are right, what would mean you could see a good clear picture of your camera picture on your computer, Just adjust your setting for a nice crisp clear picture and It should work fine on both sides, But I think the software reinstall will solve all your problems. If not Just write back to me and We can try some other solution.
