Normal 0 Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.

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:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

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:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

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

How do I get my Samsung Tablet 10.1 webcam to work?

Have you flashed generic firmware you found on the internet thinking you was upgradding it? If so it may not contain all the drivers needed for your device.
Is there a 'webcam app' on there?? You may need to install an app from the samsung app store to get it working. Or try installing Skype FROM THE SAMSUNG APP STORE it may well detect your device and install any dependant drivers at the same time.
I've also seen in tablets 'security settings' an option to allow/dis-allow applications access to the webcam. That might just need a tick in the check box

Missing webcam driver for windows 8

You stated " was working fine" , It was working fine in windows 7? windows 8? In Device Manager you can do a scan for hardware changes. Does the webcam show? if no, it might show unknown device if you will have to find the drivers for the webcam at the HP drivers and support. You can try a RE-Boot the software will try to locate a driver, if it cannot it wiil ID it as a unknown device, you will have to find the driver, this is common with a new OS or a upgrade on a machine.

Can't figure out how to install a webcam

Some webcams come with software, and some don't. Sometimes, the ones that don't require software say "driverless" on them, to reassure you that the CD isn't missing. Effectively, it means that the drivers built in to windows work just fine.

Anyhow, if your webcam came with software, install it. That's the first step. Just in case, leave the CD in the drive.

Now plug the webcam into a USB slot. Windows should detect it, and start installing it. If it asks where to look for software, choose the CD.

When the installation is finished, it may not be obvious that it's working. Go to your control panel, and look under Cameras and scanners. It should be listed there. If it is, congratulations! It's working, now try an app that uses it such as Skype. If it's not listed, then it's not working, post back for more help, and include the part number of the webcam.

Acer Linux Webcam not working with TokBox

Linux, unfortunately, isn't officially supported by Tokbox in full (some customers have issues, some don't). If you're on the most recent version of Flash (Flash 10+), downgrading to an older version of Flash (9.0.124) or above *might* help.
