Question about Microsoft Life Cam Vx-700 Webcam

2 Answers

I cannot find my LifeCam anywhere to be able to open it and use it.

I have looked all through my start menu and can't find my webcam anywhere to be able to open it. I am able to use it with Skype, but not to just use it and take a picture or video. What do I do?????

You probably don't have the LifeCam software installed on your computer. You can get it from this link on the Microsoft Website: Microsoft Hardware UK

Sounds like skype is auto detecting the camera. The camera came with a cd. You need to install the software suite that came with the web camera in order to use all of the features outside of skype. If you do not have the driver disk anymore, you can download the software here. http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/downloads#webcam

SOURCE: Sometimes doesn't work with Skype

Normal 0 Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

When Skype uses the Lifecam, an icon named "Microsoft LifeCam Dashboard"(it looks like a round blue button) shows up in the System Tray (lower right corner of the desktop). Click the icon to pop up the dashboard.

    Lifecam vx1000 not working after installation.


    Make sure that the camera is plugged in and that the software is actually installed(check your start menu for Microsoft Lifecam).

    If you didn't restart after you installed the software do that.

    Go into My Computer and look in there for an icon that is labeled something like Microsoft Lifecam vx-1000. If you see that, you are connected to the camera -- its plugged in. If you don't see it, plug it into different usb slots. You can try to Open (double click) the Microsoft Lifecam VX-1000 icon to see if it starts a video feed.

    Run the software and see what happens, I believe there is a setup wizard that will help you configure some things.
