Question about GE EasyCam Webcam

1 Answer

I have a GE webcam and I wanted to use it with skype. When I plug the camera in, it says the wizard can't find the software to install the camera. Can I download software online or did the webcam come with a CD-ROM that I need to find (I don't think it came with a CD-ROM, but I am not sure).

When I try to sign into oovoo it always says fail to sign in. How do I fix it?


Hello!
Sign in failure can be caused not only by the camera or Skype, but also by slow connection.

You first need to make sure that your camera is functional. Please, follow these steps and open these two windows:
  • QuickCam software: Start>Programs>Logitech>Logitech QuickCam and
  • Logitech Webcam Software: Start>Programs>Logitech>Logitech Webcam Software
  • Make sure you can see yourself in the Webcam software window
  • Close the webcam software window
Make sure your webcam is selected in Skype settings so that Skype can use it:
  • Sign in to your Skype, click Tools>Options>General>Video Settings
  • Check (click to have "tick" in the box) both "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call
  • Under Select Webcam (Default video device) choose Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX
  • Save
  • In Audio Settings choose Logitech Mic to be your default microphone (you have it built in your camera)
  • Check to mark the box "Let Skype adjust my audio settings"
  • Save
  • It should work now.
If you experience issues like signing in to your Skype is taking too long, Can't sign in, or you can't see or hear the other person, then you should contact your internet provider for slow connection. Also, you can check your connection using Speed Test online (www.speedtest.net).

Regards!

Select the 'Compatibility' tab
Select 'Compatibility Mode'
Use the dropbox to show the OS you have successfully used before

Start Skype.

On the Tools menu, click Options.
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
Select your webcam as the default microphone. (If it has a built-in mic)
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
Select your webcam as the default.
Click Save.
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.
