I have a sony vaio 2009 notebook and i do not know how to access my webcam for free to take pictures and videos how do i access it?

Hi cadijah495,

You can use the VAIO Camera Capture Utility Software installed in the Computer to capture images and record Videos. You can access the VAIO Camera Capture Utility from "Start", "All Programs", VAIO Camera Utility and clicking the VAIO Camera Capture Utility.

If the Application is not available in your Computer, you can re-install it from the below link.

Please open the above link in a new web browser window to download the file. Then, please save the file on the Desktop. After that, please double click on the downloaded file to begin the installation. After installing the file, please restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

Hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

To capture video acer aspire 6920 acer crystal eye webcam builti

you need to download a video capturing device
if your system did not come with one
the built in webcam is exactly that for messaging programs and taking snaps but they can be used for video and this is usually something you need to get on your own
debut is usually a pretty good site

Cannot get windows movie maker to capture video from acer crystal eyeball webcam

The latest Windows Movie Maker that came with the Live Messenger update is a beta version, and is a bit buggy just now, but will improve with updates. Make sure you have checked the Video capture settings in m.maker and chosen the acer instead of the default camera. And also that you have the Acer Crystal Eyeball usb driver installed properly.
If you still have problems, a good alternative program is videocaster.
You could check that one out.. Just click on 'Capture Video' when it opens.. You can edit, add music. stream to the web etc

Hope this helps

Use web cam to make video

Your laptop may have come with some special software for this. If not then there are a number of options you can download to try. Here's the first free one I came across:

Google for more options.
