Start->All Programs->Accessories->Entertainment->Sound Recorder

Edit menu->Audio Properties
Drop the Sound Recording menu down and select your webcam
Press the Record button and you're good to go. If that doesn't work, just make sure the webcam is properly installed and the microphone on it works (in control panel).

First, you need to have an SD card installed; the 8025 will not record video to internal memory. Second, be aware that the 8025 will not record any sound to accompany the video.

Press the Home button to bring up the main menu. Select Movie Mode (movie camera icon). Press the shutter button to begin shooting. Press the shutter button to stop shooting and save the file.

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Cant get utube to publish my tenminmixes in full

Youtube imposes a maximum limit of 10 minutes duration for each video and 100 MB max file size. Since your vids are under the 10 min limit, you should look at the file size as the offending party. If it is over 100 MB, thats the problem. To reduce the file size you need to understand what a CODEC(COder-DECoder) is and how CODECs can be used to make video files smaller for uploading to Youtube. The file you want to up-load has two parts, audio and video, Each part uses a different type of codec to encode and save the "movie" you created with your video editing program. The most common and efficient video/audio codecs used on Youtube are MPEG-4 and MP3. If your video app is not set to encode audio to MP3, you are probably encoding the audio into a raw uncompressed WAV format (pronounced wave). Uncompressed WAV files are very large compared to the MP3 format. Setting the audio bitrate can be confusing. To keep it as simple as possible, I suggest setting the Bitrate to 128 kb/s STEREO if the video has music or 96 kb/s MONO if it is just people talking. Set the Sampling rate to 44100 Hz (or 44.1Khz) AAC is another Audio format. The same sampling and bitrates apply. The next thing you want to look at is the Video resolution and type of file you are saving/recording to. Since you are recording from a webcam, you may be using a propriatary codec that came with the camera. If this is the case, then you need to let me know what brand camera and software you are using. Most video cameras, including web-cams, use non-proprietary formats that can generate very large (but high resolution) files. For example: .avi & .mpg. You want to record at the highests resolution you can, BUT, you will save it later to a lower resolution compressed file. Many webcams can record at 800x600 and 640x480, but the file you will save for Youtube may be 320x240, 480x360 or 640x480. The higher the numbers the higher the resolution, but also the larger the file size. Also, the more motion there is in a video, the larger the file will be. So, if you have a lot of action and need to "squeeze" it in (compress) the video, use a lower output resolution (320x240). If it is an interview type video, where the background stays the same, you may get away with a higher resolution (640x480) if you want a sharper image. When recordings from the camera are saved as .avi, .mov or .mpg, you will have to change the output format in your video editing program to mp4 (H.264) format. You may also be able to set your webcam to record directly to the mp4 format, which would be ideal, if you do not plan on editing your video. Then you can simply record and upload. The bottom line. ------------------ When you are done editing your movie and are ready to save it. Find where you can set or change output options in the editing app. Set the audio and video bitrates and resolution to those best suited to your needs. Change the output type to MP4, aka H.264 (for video) and MP3 or AAC (for audio). Click save, wait a bit, upload your video to YT for the world to see and revel in the glory of being a producer.

Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
2. Then click on the Video Settings.
3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Sound doesn't transfer from camera into computer

It most likely IS the .mov file. I recommend buying quicktime pro, $20,  which will allow you to convert the file, or if you get the free version of quicktime, and the video and audio play fine with it, You can use a screen recorder and turn off the "record external Mic" mode, and turn ON "Record Computer Audio" Once you're done converting (or recording) You can go ahead and edit, Hoped this helped- sincerely: animation508 (youtub username)
