Webcam not recording video


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). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer The Dell Inspiron line of laptop computers allows consumers to customize their system in a number of ways, from hardware specifications to color. The laptop also comes with an integrated webcam that can be used as a camera and for video Web chats. You can use the camera from the Dell Webcam Manager application, which controls all the functions of the camera.

Click the "Start" button on your computer, highlight "All Programs," and select "Dell Webcam Manager" from the list of available applications. Click on the "Webcam Center" icon. From the tab at the top of screen, select the action you want the camera to perform. You can use the camera to record videos, snap photos, detect motion, monitor remotely, and take time-lapse video. Press the "Record" button to start recording video or take a snapshot.

Hi
This laptop was not designed to be supported by Windows 7. After Looking on the internet for a suitable driver, there appears not to be one that will work with Windows 7 and the Vista driver will not function under the Win 7 OS. I think that you may have to consider getting an external webcam for this laptop :-(

So i bought a laptop that came with a built in webcam . but i dont know how to get it to work ? am i supposed to install it or download something or what ? im real confused .


if there is no icon in the tray for a webcam try this,
Go to --->Start--->All Programs and see if there is an application for the webcam you don't say what type of cam you have but the name should sound like a camera of some type e.g. crystalbrite, webviewer, etc. in the folder there should be an app to activate the webcam.

If that doesn't work try this, go to --->START--->Control Panel--->Scanners and Cameras and see if there is any thing there that can be a camera to activate

Worst case scenario is you'll have to do a manual search and install of the camera because its gotten uninstalled or corrupted somehow, if so you can click add device in the scanners and cameras section by going to--->START--->Control Panel--->Scanners and Camera--->Add Device

Hope this Helps,
If not repost with more info like camera type and computer make and model etc.

Try downloading and installing the newest drivers for the model of your computer.

If this doesn't fix it, make sure you are not using any programs like ManyCam or anything that would be using your webcam. You can only use the webcam in one program at a time.

Webcamera doesn't work


1. Check if Imaging Devices is listed in device manager.
2. Uninstall and reinstall the webcam companion software.

Use the Arcsoft Webcam Companion Software to use the camera to capture videos and pics. Click on start and type Webcam Companion in the search bar and press the enter key.
This will open the webcam companion software, then click on the capture option to use the camera. If you want to use the camera with any messaging software such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger etc, it is required to close the Webcam Companion Software or any other web messenger software.

The camera can be used with a single application at one time.

ASUS U50F webcam not working for months. I have looked through tons of forums, I've tried contacting the *nonexistent* support on ASUS' website and they never even helped me. I got this notebook...


Most likely you have another chat program using the camera. Right click on the icons in the systray next to the clock and exit programs. After exiting each program, try the camera again. The last program you exit before the camera is the one causing the problem. Restart the computer and right click on that program and try and set it to not start when the Windows starts.

Hi I have the Advent 6553 and i was having a problem, I took it to a repair shop and they did a reinstall, my laptop came with a built it webcam, since iv got it back i cannot find the webcam icon anywhere...


It sounds like the webcam recording software was erased. Do you have any other camera-using apps like Skype that you can use to confirm the webcam works?

If you need a program to take pictures with your webcam, this website should do the trick.

If your webcam doesn't work at all, you'll probably need to install a new driver for it. If you can't find one, I could probably help you find one.

My computer continues to say webcam not found


Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.



  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

My camera is not working.it says in use by another application. I dont know which application is using it actually none of those apps are turned on.How can i fix it?


It is possible your Startup files contains Skype, VID, PhotoBooth, or some other program that hijacks your webcam. Even if you don't have those programs running they may keep you from using a different application. You will have to manually go through any type of program that could use your webcam and turn off the camera, and/or remove those programs from your Startup menu.

Camera doesn,t work with skype


You should install the camera driver and after that, configure your skype to use your camera as default video device. You can do that in the skype interface. Make sure also that there is no other software running that uses the your webcam like camera manager or else.

I hope this could help you..:-) Thanks..
