Re: Acer Crystal Eye webcam
Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.
Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.
Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.

How to Record Webcam Video with Earlier Versions of Windows Movie Maker
you're still using Windows XP, your Windows Movie Maker version might
still support capturing video from a webcam. To do this, go to your WMM
Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device". Select webcam
from the list of analog devices. You must also select the video input
line you want to use for capturing your webcam video. Then enter a name
for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you
want to save it. Select your video setting preferences for the video
you want to capture. To stop capturing, you can either
choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.
How to Record Video on Your Webcam with Newer Versions of Windows Movie Maker
we say newer versions, we are referring to Windows Movie Maker version
6 which comes pre-loaded with the Windows Vista system. Since Windows
Vista is a pretty advanced OS, we expected the latest version of the
WMM to support webcam video capture as well. It's very helpful and
economical since it comes packaged with Windows Vista, and you don't
have to pay the extra cost just to have that tool. So, the next
question now is, how can you record a webcam video using Windows Movie
Maker 6. Actually, like we said - you can't. You won't see the "Start
Capture" tool in the File Menu of your latest Windows Movie Maker. Your
best bet is to look for alternative and cheaper software that would
help you capture whatever you want to record from your webcam. Or,
better yet, use the software that comes with your webcam to capture
video and then import it into Windows Movie Maker for
editing and enhancements. If your webcam didn't come with video capture
software, you're in luck because there are free software appllications
available for you to download to do such tasks. You can find a good
list of webcam video capturing software from this list: http://www.sharewareconnection.com/titles/webcam-video.htm
Sounds like you have a driver problem, go to acer.com, download the drivers for your make and model for the cam drivers, make sure you select the right O/S.. exp Windows Vista, Windows XP.... and so forth..
look up debut video capture. it a free down load. lets you use your acer web cam to record video and everything. has some other things you can install with it but I chose just to use the video capture.
