  • Select the "Camera Assistant Software" program located under the "Program Files" folder accessed by opening your computer "Start" menu.
  • 2 View the configuration options available for your built in webcam and microphone. In order to use the webcam you will need to use a video chat service such as Yahoo Instant Messenger, AOL IM, or Google Video Chat.
  • 3 Open your Instant Messaging (IM) program by double clicking the program icon on your computer desktop. If you do not have an instant messaging service, you can sign up for a service from Yahoo, AOL, or Google through the URLs included in the resource section of this article. For Yahoo and AOL, you can download and install IM software to use with your laptop webcam on your computer.
  • 4 Sign in to your IM service. Then, select the "My Webcam" icon on the application menu to enable video chat in the service. When the webcam is enabled, others will be able to see and here you when conducting a video chat session on your laptop.

    Hello, My acer 4520 laptop mic is not working suddenly. In control panel it is showing working. But I cant use it in Gmail. Ins skype it is working but voice is too low.. How could i test my mic. Its...

    The mic is build-in, of course, it's in the top bar of the screen, besides the camera.
    You need to be closer to the laptop to get higher voice.
    While it works in Skybe, this means it should word in any other program like GMail, MSN, or even with the default recorder comes in windows, some configurations should be fixed or modified in the GMail program
    Please tell us your results
    Good Luck

    Images of square subjects taper to the left

    Your post is rather general, but I will see what I can do for you:

    My guess is that the camera and the subject are not lined up properly to produce a square image. The same thing happens when you point the camera up at a tall building. Since the top of the building is farther away it appears smaller in the image, like the buildings taper as they get taller.

    When taking a picture of a square object, you need to have the surface of the object parallel to the body of the camera in order for it to appear square in the image. Additional, most of the time, you will also have to shoot directly at the middle of the object as well.

    Small amounts of this distortion can be corrected in PhotoShop.

    the camera seemed not been properly configured for the chat program you are using. Please make sure that the webcam have been configured properly with your chat program like YM. Also check if the camera works locally, meaning, if it captures video while not in chat rooms

    S-video, a laptop and a vcr

    What is the camera model, actual powerbook and vcr? And you want to do this to convert from vhs to mini dv? Your camera should have a firewire port on it called 1394. Your VCR may or may not have S-video. If not you can purchase a s-video to coax adapter ( velloy video rca ). You may also need to locate a 4pin to 6 pin firewire cable. the 4 pin is for the cam, 6 pin is for the mac. The camera then goes s-video to rca to the vcr posssibly. Again I am only suggesting this at first, guess what is standard, and what I have seen. Any other variables or specifics that I am not aware of in your case, may change this configuration. If you have Ilife 05 or later or Imovie. Plug the camera to its power source. If the firewire cable is running to the mac, and the mac it on. Turning on the camrea will automatically open Imovie. From there you can load all of the video onto the Macintosh, and do what you like, watch , edit....what have you.
