There is a program (should be on your Samsung NC10 under Samsung) it is called 'Play Camera' If you cannot find it, go to this URL (double click it or Copy and Paste into the address bar of your Browser.
It is in Downloads - Software... Look for the name Play Camera, then look right for the Zip download file (its size is 13.2 Mb) Click that and save it to your desktop or My Documents Downloads. It tool me 2 mins at 600kbps download speed...
Unzip the file and run Setup.exe... This will install the program - unfortunately it didn't put an icon on MY desktop - but I went to C; drive, Program Files, Samsung (I found ALL the Samsung programs in there!) located Play Camera then 'Made a Shortcut' on the Desktop.
Click on the Icon to see yourself in the Webcam..

My webcam is not working, i intalled the setups, but not showing any camera properties.

Hi Sweetpravi4u,

You might have a missing driver that's why it is not showing the properties and doesn't work. Here are some options that you can apply to check this issue. Just press the FN+ESC and see if it will work. Pressing the FN+ESC will activate your camera. But if no dice, just go ahead and reinstall the correct driver. You can download it here, please go to the camera section then select the driver that corresponds to your operating system. For additional steps please follow the instructions below.

1. After selecting the correct driver, please click on I agree once the pop up window appears.

2. Now save the .exe file to your desktop.

3. After downloading, install the driver then restart the system.

4. After you reboot the computer, press the FN+ESC to activate the camera.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Even though the camera works, the blue light no

Perhaps the LED burnt out or is defective, or a wired came loose inside the webcam. It might not matter as long as your webcam works. Test it on the free webcam test tool just to be sure.

Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a program, even when you exit the previous program correctly.

Asus Webcam constantly being used by mystery application

Built in webcams are not the easiest to troubleshoot as its difficult to reboot the webcam software.
With my plug-in I can just disconnect it for a couple of seconds to reboot it and clear the previous program.
Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a program even after you exit it correctly.
What is unusual with yours the webcam comes on when you start your computer.
You might try to disable your webcam and then enable it again in the 'Imaging' folder of your Device Manager to see if the webcam light goes off and remains off when you enable it again.
You should be able to see where the webcam is being used by launching your Task Manager and hitting the Application tab.
Hope you can get your problem sorted and post some information on it for future reference

When I activate my video on the vx-6000, the other

Does that webcam have a USB plug AND an audio jack to plug into your computer? If so, you don't need to plug in the audio jack connected to it, and that should help with the heavy static the other person gets. Then again, unless you have another mic plugged into your computer on a headset or something, you won't be able to send audio because the mic to the webcam would be unplugged.

I hope this helps.
