How to use webcam on acer aoi-301 labtop


Check this first: Certain Acer laptops come with a built-in Webcam called the "Acer Crystal Eye." This Webcam is located in the center of your lid just above your LCD screen. Those models that possess this integrated Webcam also have a program with the same name. This "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" program allows you to record video through your Webcam and save it on your hard drive.

Step 1 Click "Start," "All Programs," "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" and click the program shortcut of the same name. This opens up the Webcam where you can see yourself, but it hasn't started recording yet.
Step 2 Click the video camera icon, which is the one second from the left under the video display. This starts recording the video.
Step 3 Click the video camera icon again to stop recording and save your video. You can also delete the video by clicking the clip's thumbnail on the bottom panel and clicking the trashcan icon.
Step 4 Locate the video file on your hard drive in your "My Videos" folder, which can be found inside your "My Documents" folder.

By default, the webcam icon does not appear on the desktop. However, if you want a quick access to your webcam application, you can create a shortcut on the desktop:
  1. Click Start, and then All programs.
  2. Click the Acer Crystal Eye webcam folder.
  3. Right-click Acer Crystal Eye webcam, click Send to and then Desktop (create shortcut).

I have an acer aspire 5535 with a crystal eye webcam. I had to reformat. afterwwords, I could'nt find a Icon or anything for the webcam so went to acer/support and dowloaded both drivers again now I have a...


You can right click on the icon and check it's properties.

It should link to the proper place in your program files. This is the path specified for my icon. You might actually be able to copy and paste this into your icon properties and see if it works.

Otherwise, you should open Program Files in your C: drive and look for the Crystal Eye folder that has been installed since you re-installed it from acer/support. Find the executable in the crystal eye webcam folder that does start your webcam properly, and then when you've found it, right click on it and specify that you want to make a shortcut to it. Then take the shortcut that appears and move it over to your desktop to replace the disconnected icon that isn't working.


Good luck,

Cannot find the icon or whatever in order to use the crystal eye


Right click on an open space of your desktop. Select New>Shortcut.

When the Create Shortcut window comes up, click Browse.

Double-click "Computer".

Double-click "Acer (C:)" or your C: drive. It may not be named Acer.

Double-click "Program Files".

Double-click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam".

Click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" next to the small icon. (NOTE: Do not select the one that just says "Crystal Eye". It is only an icon, not the program.)

Click OK.

Back at the Create Shortcut window, click Next.

Type in whatever name you want to give, or leave the default as is.

Click Finish.

Icon appears on desktop. Double-click the icon to begin the program.

Acer cystal eye webcam


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.
NB:
the icon that you right click on must be the icon that acesses & activates the crystal eye web cam.

hope this solves your problem.
