I have a student who is trying to send me a videoed email of her speech. When I try to open it, I get the message " Cannot locate the file. C:/Users/ Videos/Demonstration Speech.avi Do you want to relink this file?" When I try to relink, my computer stops seeing the file altogether. I am trying to open with Video Impression 2. I know nothing about webcams and just started to accept them this semester. She knows absolutely nothing about webcams and wants some help...so Help! Please!!!

No problem, can i send video to a friend instantly as i am on line or do they need to have software to receive it?


To video chat live, yes they would need to be online at the same time. If you want to send them a recorded video message when they are offline try one of the free video email services like mailVU.

I have a problem with my webcam sound. I recorded my assignment speech and when i try to listen to the speech, there was no sound coming out from the webcam. i tried everything and nothing worked. Can you...


Hi chinonsobeau,

First off, you to list the model number of your HP web Cam, as well as your OS, and the software you using to record your sound. I will assume that you have Quickplay which HP ususally send out with their web cams.

To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut. If you still don't find it, then HERE is a place you can download it and use it. It also has instruction on how to use it.

Or sometimes HP sends out Cheese, another camera software. You can download that HERE.

These are the instructions for QuickPlay:

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam


I'm less familiar with Cheese, so I'll give you their website HERE to go to their support and they can guide you through their program.

Anyway, I hope this helps,

Don't forget to leave a raing,

Thanks

Mark

I record a webcam video. i want to send it to


When you create a video using the webcam it might be saved in uncompressed AVI forma. Hence the file becomes very big thus it takes time to upload while sending by email.

You can convert the file into a compressed form like 3gp using a Converter, then it will easily go thru email.

You can look for any "3gp converter" on Google

How do I use the web camera without skype?


How does a webcam work?
There are two different ways to use a webcam at home — through e-mail and with instant messaging programs.

E-mail your video files
To use a webcam with e-mail, first launch the software that comes with the camera. Depending on the model, the process of e-mailing and recording your video messages may vary. Press Start or Record to begin the video message. Click Stop and then preview the video. You can then click E-mail or Send, which will automatically open your default e-mail program (Outlook 2007).

When sending a video e-mail, the longer the video message recorded, the bigger the attachment will be, so make sure the recipient’s computer can handle the size. The recipient of the e-mail does not need special software to see your video message; he or she simply chooses to open the attachment and the mini-movie will play.

E-mailing videos


Mary,

How big is the video you are sending?

Most emails block attachments greater than 10mb.

You might want to try a program called Pando or check out YouSendIt.com

Best of luck!

Using MAPI ( Messaging Application Program Interface) with Microsoft Outlook Express 5/6:
1. Start Microsoft Outlook
2. Go to Tools> Options.
3. Click Make Default under Default Messaging Programs- This application is NOT the default Mail handler.
4. Restart your computer.

Using MAPI with Microsoft Outlook:
Microsoft Outlook automatically sets up your MAPI E-mail program during installation. Make sure you M-O Email app. is properly set up with the right POP account name, password, SMTP mail host account, and other requirements. For further assistance, contact your Internet Service Provider *ISP* or systems administrator.

Usin Web-based E-mail Programs to Send Files *aol, yahoo etc...*:
Web based Email programs don't support MAPI functions. If you click on the Send button, it will not work. To send email files, follow the steps below:
1. Log in to your web based email service.
2.Compose a new email message.
3. Depending on your web based email service, look for the Attach, Attachments, or Insert option to attach your file. You will be prompted to browse for the desired file you want to attach. Change the directory to where you saved your file and attach the files.
