Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have Arcsoft Web Companion 2 for Vista and i'm trying to use an external mic while recording a video but it doesn't seem to want to work. When i press record, the screen turns black but the elapsed time still goes up... i thought that maybe when i stopped recording, the video would appear, but no video shows up to replay. I'm using an Apex tube microphone with an EMU 0404 audio/midi interface that connects via usb. If someone could give me some insight into why this is happening, that would be great and if you need more information, i'll gladly provide it. Thank you very much.

How do i access my Sony vaio webcam


Sony's Vaio laptop computer line includes the company's Motion Eye webcam and ArcSoft WebCam Companion software for Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Located in the LCD screen's upper bezel, the webcam is positioned at face-level when seated at the computer and automatically tracks movement to keep subjects within the lens's field of view.

1.Click on the "Start" menu at the bottom left corner of your screen, choose "All Programs" at the bottom of the menu just above the search box.
2.Scroll through the program list until "ArcSoft WebCam Companion" is located. Alternatively, you may type "WebCam Companion" in the search box to locate the program.
3.Click on the WebCam Companion icon to open the program. The program window will open, offering choices of Capture, Record, Monitor and Edit. Capture is used to take still pictures individually or in a series, Record is used to record videos, Monitor records videos when motion is detected and Edit allows editing of previously recorded videos.
4.Choose the webcam function you wish to use by clicking the icon. The appropriate screen will open, activating the webcam and displaying the camera view on-screen. The on-screen view will display what is within the field of the webcam lens, allowing you to adjust the LCD screen or your position before beginning webcam functions.
5.Click the webcam function according to the mode you have chosen. Functions in Capture mode include Capture or Burst, Record in the Record mode, Monitor in the Monitor mode and Snap Shot or Edit Video in Edit mode. When you have completed your webcam activity, the program automatically saves your video or snap shot within the program to be accessed, viewed or edited at a later time.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.com

Webcamera doesn't work


1. Check if Imaging Devices is listed in device manager.
2. Uninstall and reinstall the webcam companion software.

Use the Arcsoft Webcam Companion Software to use the camera to capture videos and pics. Click on start and type Webcam Companion in the search bar and press the enter key.
This will open the webcam companion software, then click on the capture option to use the camera. If you want to use the camera with any messaging software such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger etc, it is required to close the Webcam Companion Software or any other web messenger software.

The camera can be used with a single application at one time.

How to activate my web cam


Hi,

As I would suggest all the posters, please do mention the make and model of the computer that you are using. Here as you have posted under Sony Notebook, I think you own a VAIO, in VAIO, the computers are shipped with ArcSoft Web companion. Please click Start button and then in the search box, please type in ArcSoft Web companion, this will bring up the application. You can use the same to capture Videos and Pictures. For Video conferencing, you need use Skype, Yahoo Messenger or other video conferencing applications.

If any clarifications, please get back to me the exact model # of the computer.


Thanks!!!!

I have a built in webcam but i do not know how to work it. I have tried everything. It doesn't identify it.


You need to access the camera from the ArcSoft WebCam Companion application. If you do not have it installed, you can download it from your manufacturers website. Once installed, it will work fine.

No sound on my Arcsoft webcam Companion on my BenQ


You mean the webcam mic is not working?
First try reinstalling the webcam driver, to make sure the mic device is installed. Then check the sound recording settings in the device manager, and make sure the webcam mic is the default device. Also check the recording levels.
Lastly, in the program you are using, also check the recording settings as they may override the default settings.

Sounds like a software issue, possibly with webam central. There's a free player that has good codecs, and it may help you. Here it is:
