Question about Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera

Using Jazz DV-179 as WEBCAM on MSN Messenger

Having a small problem getting this camera to work as a webcam on msn. I have installed the cam and went thru msn setup. When I send my cam to an msn contact it starts up and gets to the point where I can see myself but the other contact see nothing. This happens with all my contacts not just one. then after a few seconds of seeing myself it closes and the camera turns off

I have also tried using different USB plugins.

My ideas??

Webcam


You need to set the camera to USB stream. You may be able to find instructions to do this in your manual.

False Advertising


If you look at the outside of the LCD screen it should say the model number. You can use it as a webcam via msn messenger as I have used it before. You need to read the instruction manual in order to get it to work. It was a bit confusing to configure at first but it does work. As for the avi format, it will convert to the default that is based on your computer. For example if you use windows media player which for the most part defaults to avi format then that is what you will recieve. Using the software that came with the digital recorder will provide you with the necessary means to convert your videos to the mpeg4 format. As for the mega pixals, I know that the newer models that are now available have the 11 mega pixals.

I have no clue how get my Jazz Elite HDV178 camera/camcorder to work as a web cam. can someone please eplain it to me??? thank you.


Make sure the software that came with the camera is intalled. Conect the camera to your computer (via USB the (batteries are not required to be in the camera when you do this)) press the button above the USB. On a pc in the bottom right corner will say "installing new device" ... load up "Showbiz DVD 2" (Start, all programs, Arcsoft showbiz dvd2, showbiz DVD 2.) select “capture from device”. It will show a live image off the camera. If you want to use the camera on an instant messaging service (I use windows live messenger 8.5) close Showbiz. Open instant messenger. Once loaded select Menu, tools, webcam settings. There you can adust settings like the brightness. Then if you want others to know that you have a web cam click on your display name, options, personal. At the bottom of this tam there is a tick box makes sure that this is ticked. Hope this helps
