Using the webcam

How do i use my built in webcam


Step 1:
An example of a device that has come a long way is the webcam. Originally, these devices were highly priced, slow and complicated to operate, but today webcams are easy to use, efficient and inexpensive. In some models, laptops even have a webcam built in. If you want to use a webcam to chat with family or friends, you don't have to be technically savvy. By following several simple steps, you'll be on your way to having fun with your webcam.

Plug your webcam's USB cable into a USB port and turn on your computer. Once the computer's operating system finds the camera, it will ask you if you want to install the driver. Click on "Yes" or "Install" and insert the installation disc that came with your camera when prompted. Wait for your webcam's software to finish installing. Access your webcam's settings once it's installed. Click on its icon on your desktop or access it through where it was installed in your computer. Adjust your webcam's settings by customizing the camera's resolution, speaker and microphone to your liking. This process will vary depending on your webcam, but usually you can access these settings through the "settings" menu. Other functions include being able to take still photos, recording "motion pictures" as well as doing audio captures. These settings will be displayed by obvious icons on the webcam's software menu. Features will vary depending on the type of webcam. Test the built-in microphone or use an external headphone set so you can also talk to other people via webcam. To test the microphone, simply run a "sound test." This can be accessed under the "settings" menu in the "sounds" section. Open a free account with Yahoo! Messenger, Skype, Windows Live or ICQ by going to their websites and installing the software. For instance, if you want to install Yahoo! Messenger, simply go to Yahoo.com and click on the "Messenger" link on the left side of the screen next to the "smiley face" icon, and install the software by clicking on the "Download Now" tab and following the instructions. Invite other friends to your chat. Voice over IP software services such as Yahoo! Messenger, Skype and Windows Live have integrated features that allow you to converse with other people while seeing each other through the webcam. Invite friends by opening the chat software you are using and clicking on the "add new contact" or "add" option and typing the person's email or User ID in the blank box. Wait for the other person to accept your invitation. Once you see the person listed under your contacts, right-click and select the "video call" or "video chat" option. This will vary depending on the software you are using, but the process is similar regardless of the software you decide to use.
Use a Built-In Webcam b> Open Yahoo Messenger and select "My Webcam" from the "Messenger" menu. This will bring up a window showing what your webcam sees. To invite one of your contacts to view your webcam, right-click on them in your contacts list and choose "Invite to View My Webcam" from the "More Actions" area of the pop-up menu. Your contact will receive an invitation to view your webcam. Open Skype and select a contact you'd like to call. Skype will automatically detect that you have a webcam attached to your computer and give you the option to place either a voice-only or a video call to the contact. Choose "Video call" and your contact will be able to see and hear you. Open Picasa and select the webcam icon to the right of the "Import" button. A window displaying a view from your webcam will pop up. Click the "Record" button to begin recording a video or the camera icon to take a snapshot.

My Gateway Windows 7 NV5929u laptop's built-in Video Web Camera doesn't work. All it does now is pop up the following message whenever I try to open it: Cannot open file C:\Program Files...


The file it's saying it cant find is a simple image file, most likely a picture used for a background or some other part of the webcam softwares interface. The first step would be to go to the location it's mentioning and make sure the file is in fact missing. If it is, you can check the recycle bin to see if it has been accidentally deleted. If its not there, then the next option would be to re-install the webcam software.
The webcam software for the gateway NV59 series can be downloaded here : http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2379
hope that helps.

Cannot connect to webcam


To check your webcam, open messenger on the toolbar at the top > messenger > my webcam > this should open a warning panel - read and click 'ok'.this will launch your webcam and show you as other people will view you. You can also use the webcam icon as a shortcut

If all is ok, when your contact is on line and you want them to see your webcam go to toolbar > actions > invite to view my webcam.

if your contact wants you to view them they will send you an invite
click on the blue "accept"

also check your connection >messenger>preference>connection> select no proxies - check internet connection and country are correct >apply > ok ..

THANKS.

I am trying to fix my web cam problem with my aspire 5610Z i downloaded the webcam driver off the website but its a .rar file, where should I unzip it and how do i got about installing it?


Ok, what you need to do, is Unzip the file, to any convenient place, say C:\WebCam then go to that directory after it decompresses, and look for the main install, or setup, .exe program, now, double click on that, and the install program will run and install the software, it may require user input, so follow any instruction, usually saying Yes to everything, but READ each section, now once it is installed, it will be ready to use.Once installed you can also download freeware webcam software. a particularly good one is AMCAP.

Orbi cam not working when i open my cam


Orbi cam doesn't work with Vista in several of the Acer models, this is a common problem. I did however find a possible solution. Follow the link below, read it and the directions, then follow the link on the page for the drivers. I realize that it reads that it's for an Acer 9300, however downloading and trying the drivers will not hurt your system, it simply will not work, which is exactly where you are right now. You can always revert back to the old drivers. Let me know how this works out so I can advise others.
