Hi :) If you have WindowsXP you can use the Windows Movie Maker in Programs lok in the file section when you execute the program and click on video capture and if you have a video camera the program will be recording from it.

I have a compaq presario cq56 115dx and i dont know how to use the camera like on skype i want to make a video call and i cant


This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

Tell me how to activate the camera ,because i can see people am talking to,but they cant see me,this is what they tell me.


Hi,

I am presenting below solution by keeping in mind that the webcam software is installed on your laptop.

Compaq laptops come with QuickPlay features that allow you to conveniently access your built-in webcam. Use the QuickPlay software to activate the webcam in your Compaq laptop and record videos and photos right onto your hard drive. The software is straightforward and simple to understand for both novice and experienced computer users.
Step 1 Click the "Start" icon and type "quickplay" into the search field. Click the "QuickPlay" entry that appears in the results. Alternately, press the "QuickPlay" button located near the laptop's display.
Step 2 Click the "Video" icon in the QuickPlay interface that opens, then double-click the "HP Webcam" option in the "Source" window. The image from your webcam appears on the screen.

Do post if you still find problems in accessing the webcam.

Thanks,
Amar

I dont know if i have a web cam on my compaq laptop if i do how do i get to it


Hi.

Your model of laptop does NOT come with a webcam built in, so the only way to use a webcam is to get an external one, there are several on the market that work wonderfully with your laptop.

Most electronic retail stores carry several models, just get one that suits your needs, plug it into the usb jack, install the software for it, and you should be good to go!

Good luck, and have a nice day !

How do begin to use the webcam?


To use the webcam you'll need software. Usually a webcam comes with software for it. If it's built in, on a Compaq, search for Cyberlink Youcam, which comes with your computer.
If you want to use it for video chatting, you'll have to download something like Skype, or Google video chat.
Hope this helps!

How to turn on webcam on my hp laptop


Hi,

YouCam is webcam software available on some HP and Compaq computers. This software is used to take individual snapshots and capture short video sequences with the built-in webcam, manipulate these photos and videos for artistic effect, and then share the files with other people. The files can be e-mailed, uploaded to the web manually, or uploaded through an embedded link to the YouTube video sharing service. If YouCam is not already installed on the computer, this document describes how to download and install the program, and provides an overview of the interface and controls.


Please follow this link and get the problem resolved.

Webcam


Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
