Gateway netbook LT2802u. I want to use the built in camera - webcam - manually. It works on Skype - I can take pictures to post for my profile and it works as a webcam. Also I can find the webcam in device...


Your web cam works with software. Any video chat programs or web programs will allow your camera to function. Like Yahoo, MSN, Google, Skype, ooVoo... So you would need a installed a computer program that would give you more control. Check with the manufacturer to see what they have that would give you this kind of control. logitech.com if it's a logitech CAM. If the software isn't compatible with the version of windows.. Then the CAM would only work with web based programs (Skype, ooVoo, yahoo......)

How do i turn on the web cam


The web cam is turned on in a particular application, like WINDOWS MESSENGER, which will have tools to actually turn on the CAM. It depends on what application you want the CAM to open up in, but it doesn't just "run" or "turn on" without some other application running that will use it, like SKYPE, or PALTALK or FACEBOOK.

Trying to connect web cam to skype. no conection


Be sure you check if you have the most recent version of skype first. Next check online what type of webcam you have, and update the drivers to the newest version. Check if it works, and if it doesn't then reset your computer. Check if any other programs running are using the webcam, and if they are close them. If that fails reinstall skype and try again.

Hi ihave an acer aspire 5600 .My webcam works with other aplications but not on skype and msn.Could you please help me?


Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.
For more information about how to configure Skype Messenger, please visit the following Skype Web site:
http://support.skype.com (http://support.skype.com)

WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER ( MSN)
Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

When using Skype, I get an error message and people hear me but


Hi, I checked and found that the Oker web cam was rated one of the best for Skype. If you read Microsoft's review of your cam it shows that it's really made for the Windows Live System. Check out this link on the Oker.
http://www.mathaba.net/shop/skype-webcam1.shtml
7a9bc13.gif If you can do it, buy a Oker and test it out to see if the problem is with your cam and not the pc. If it turns out the same as your MS cam then we can look into your setup on your PC. but you have stated that your cam works find with other software. Let me know how it went.

Verify that video capture or any other program is not running since it will lock the cam. If not try reinstalling the drivers.
