Web Cam not working... HELP Please


First, you are NOT the only one. Skype seems to be having issues. I teleconference with Skype 20 times a day. 1/2 the time the cameras work and 1/2 the time it doesn't, and it could be mine or the person I called that doesn't work.

Check and see if you have the latest version of Skype. If not, download and install.

Try your webcam software as if you are going to make a video. If the camera works, it's most likely Skype. If not, start troubleshooting the camera.

Web cam problem with skype


Normal 0 See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon ZR-800 Mini DV Camcorder tape stuck


The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape and finally eject. However, the tape is usually pulled or stretched and I use a small flat head screwdriver to wind the tape back in, but expect that portion of the video to be ruined.

Does canonZR950 have a DV- In ? (Is a DV port always a I/O port)


This is incredible - I didn't know such a thing existed - but it does appear that the DV port on that camcorder is bidirectional, so it will serve as an input when connect to a source with a DV out. Very nice!

A lot, of course, will also depend on your endoscopic camera. I have seen endoscopic cams that would definitely be compatible with your Canon. But I saw a particular JVC endoscopic cam that would not be compatible. What is the model/manufacturer of the endoscopic cam?

Here is a copy of the manual for the Canon:

Unable to tansfer video to computer using DV cable..


Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to Microsoft.com and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.

There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.

Good luck on that.
