How can i use my cam on my notebook even not on line?


Many notebook computers come with a built-in camera that enables you to take photos and do video chats with friends and family. These devices also come with built-in software that allows you to turn the camera on from your Start Menu and customize the picture and sound quality. Although doing a video chat isn't quite the same as being there in person, it is the next best thing.

1.Click on the Start Menu in Windows in the lower left corner. Go to "Programs" and locate the webcam software that came with your notebook.
2.Click on the program and a new window will appear. The camera will start up and you will appear in the window.
3.Adjust the video and audio by going to "Tools" on the menu at the top of the screen and then "Options." You can change the contrast, brightness, hue and saturation here. You can also change the microphone settings.

I hope you may find it very helpful. Thanks.

How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

I cant use my webcam on skpe why cant i?


First off verify that your PC is connecting with your cam. (Proper drives installed)

Second, go to Tools/ Options/ Calls/ Video Settings
--There is a drop down menu, make sure you have your cam selected instead of the default view. That should fix your problem, as skype is probably not trying to use your cam as a viewing source.

post back if you need further help, thank you for choosing Fixya!

Sometimes you can select if it is a 2 way video chat or just a receive (they cant see you) Also check and see if the chat client is configured to use the webcam as its default video device.
