Hi mehrakanishk,
Have you tried using VLC player to record the video? I have setup mine after reading your post. I have a built in web cam. Here is the basic steps:
1. Open VLC player. Select Media->Open Capture Device or (CTRL+C) 2. Select Capture Device tab 3. Select your web cam on a drop down list on the video device name. Do the same with the audio. If you notice you can configure both audio and video. There is also an Advance Option if you like. 5. Click Play 6. Finally, click View Menu and check Advance Control so that a record button will appear.
I hope it will work for you. Im using version VLC player 1.1.4.

Got a Acer Aspire One Notebook KAV60 - A0D250 w/ WINDOWS 7 Starter. It has an Acer Crystal Eye Web cam on it. It starts, but is there anyway to record on it? We tried the "DEBUT VIDEO CAPTURE". It worked...


Hey!
The link I attached should be all you need.

I would recommend Windows 10, it's a lot better with notebooks and it even has it's own free camera software.

Have a nice day :) Free Webcam Video Recorder

How to make video with crystal eye web cam


hello kma bay bay,

Look for a piece of software called "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" in your start menu program list, or in your program files folder. This is a simple photo and video capture program that comes with your laptop. It is very similar to Apple's "Photo Booth" program if your familiar with that.

To start recording a video click on the camcorder icon, to stop click on it again. To take a picture click on the camera icon. All of your saved photos and videos will be displayed in a scrolling menu along the bottom of the program window. To delete a file click on it to highlight and then click the trash can icon. To open a file in a video player or photo view double click it. If you don't have this software I've included a link to download it from cnet.com below.

Acer Aspire - Crystal Eye Webcam won't record video


Update the drivers. The Crystal Eye is not the best camera out there. I have had to update mine 7 times and only owned it for 3 months

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam


The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).

Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.

Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.

Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.

good luck
