Webcam not recording video


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer The Dell Inspiron line of laptop computers allows consumers to customize their system in a number of ways, from hardware specifications to color. The laptop also comes with an integrated webcam that can be used as a camera and for video Web chats. You can use the camera from the Dell Webcam Manager application, which controls all the functions of the camera.

Click the "Start" button on your computer, highlight "All Programs," and select "Dell Webcam Manager" from the list of available applications. Click on the "Webcam Center" icon. From the tab at the top of screen, select the action you want the camera to perform. You can use the camera to record videos, snap photos, detect motion, monitor remotely, and take time-lapse video. Press the "Record" button to start recording video or take a snapshot.

How do i turn on the camera of my sony vaio vpcee31fx


Hi,

There is no specific button to turn ON the camera in VAIO computers. Start the computer, search for the application ArcSoft Web Companion 3, the camera will start functioning. You can also use the camera with other video conferencing applications. Remember, the camera will only work with any one application at a time.

Thanks!

Do not know how to turn the webcam on so I can use Skype


Hi,

In a VAIO there is no particular switch to turn ON the camera. Starting the computer automatically turns on the camera. To check if the camera is working properly, please open the ArcSoft Web Companion application that came with the computer. If the camera is working there, then the camera in the computer is perfect. You need to configure the Skype for video conferencing.

Below mentioned link has pictorial representation of the configuration of the Skype application with Camera in your VAIO.

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.

There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
