Question about Webcams
I've just installed my FIRST ever webcam VX1000, everything seems fine, but how do I use it? is there an idiots guide somewhere, I've installed one on my friends computer as well, but we are both thick !!!!
I recently installed the LifeCam on my Dell Computer Running XP. My kids have cameras built into their Apple laptops. Yesterday I tried AOL IM which they all have I could converse with my daughter but no video came through either direction. The LifeCam box said it would work with AOL IM. I can see myself on my screen. A video camera is showing next to my name on her end. I cannot find an answer anywhere as to how to make this work. It's really frustrating. I went to MS website but found nothing when typing in LifeCam and AOL IM.
First download and install Skype and install the program. Then follow the info to setup the Audio and Video in info below.
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:
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:
C. Windows Live Messenger:
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
