Acer cystal eye web cam

How do you make the web cam work? I click on the icon and I see myself, but how do I communicate with others that have a web cam. It did not come with instruction with the laptop.

How to make video with crystal eye web cam

hello kma bay bay,

Look for a piece of software called "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" in your start menu program list, or in your program files folder. This is a simple photo and video capture program that comes with your laptop. It is very similar to Apple's "Photo Booth" program if your familiar with that.

To start recording a video click on the camcorder icon, to stop click on it again. To take a picture click on the camera icon. All of your saved photos and videos will be displayed in a scrolling menu along the bottom of the program window. To delete a file click on it to highlight and then click the trash can icon. To open a file in a video player or photo view double click it. If you don't have this software I've included a link to download it from below.

Acer crystal eye webcam doesnt work.

ok this problem is caused by the wrong drive installed for the Crystal Eye Web cam.

even thoguh the camera shows that it is installed, the application looks for a specific one for the model you have. Unfortunatly Acer used 3 models of the camera without telling you which you have and calls all of them "crystal eye web cam"

go to select their support section and download all driver and applications available for the camera. you will need to try then 1 at a time til you get the one that works for your system

Crystal Eye eb Cam not functioning

If the blue light does not come on by the camera, then just the program is running and not the camera, it takes one program and one driver to run the Crystal Eye.

Here is the link to both files, make sure you have them both installed. Click on the link > click on Notebooks > click on Aspire > click on 5610 > download noth camera downloads > one is a driver, the other is the software.

hi that would be simple if you find the folder in which the web cam icon is located right click on the icon scroll down to send another window should open up on the side then click on desktop(shortcut) this should put the icon as a short cut on the desk top.
the icon that you right click on must be the icon that acesses & activates the crystal eye web cam.

hope this solves your problem.
