the web cam have to be installed(the driver to operate it ) and after that you will be able to use it ...in case it is already installed to capture use the AMcap program in the start menu ...or the picture capture function in the my computer folder..
for video calls you have to use the camera in an instant messenger program like yahoo messenger or msn or skype..
the driver for it it may be found on the support site of the manufacturer ...just type the manufacturer name and the word support beside it ..and go on site ...choose downloads...than the model and number of the notebook and the operation system that you have in use...and download the driver if it is missing ...
For conferencing, the newer instant messaging software - yahoo, msn, aol, have video capabilities. To capture localy look for video capture software or check cameras and scanners in control panel. Or type "web cam" in help and support from start menu.
