    It seems early on I accidently got the function of web cam but now I cannot duplicate it. I have tried the usb mode in camera and menu without getting the web cam mode. I want to use the camera to feed the video to my laptop and use the laptop to provide input to a projector for instructional purposes. is there any way to connect the usb input to the windows media player, that would accomplish what I am after.

Use sony dcr-sr40 as webcam


unfortunately for this model, it would not be possible to be use as a webcam. it uses HDD as its recording media. it may actually work if you have:
1.an a/v capture card installed in your computer that connects to the a/v jack of the camcorder.
2.a webcam application software that supports a/v connection
basically,you would need a camcorder that that has a usb streaming feature and a computer that has an OS that supports it (i.e win xp),or you can use ilink (dv or ieee1394) connection So you should be using a digital-8 or dv camcorder.it works perfectly as a webcam.of course, your webcam software should be designed to work with whatever connection your using.hope this info helps.tnx:)

Canon hv30 is't being recognized on my vista computer


You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.

How to use a dvd cam as a webcam


hi!
i have a camcorder too im using it for some capturing videos on some places. i have webcam for chats and capturing pictures on a computer.so i suggest that use a webcam instead of camcorder. it will be pretty easy to use.

but if you want to use your camcorder as a webcam heres my help. all brand new camcorders have their own cables like usb, adapter, cd drivers, etc.. In interface on your camcorder just plug the usb to your computer. make sure that the computer will detect your camcorder. It will notify you for the installation of your device. If the computer searching for the drivers hardware just insert the cd driver included on the package of your camcorder. install it and when the computer will say that "your device is all ready to use" it means that the computer and your camcorder ready for some capturing moment or can use it as a webcam. i myself is using a yahoo messenger. the best way to apply for some devices like webcams and camcorders. it can easily detected.

i hope that my solutions help you!
thank you for using FixYa as your technical support questions

Video streaming is possible with DV camcorders thanks to the Firewire port (IEEE1394), which works very much like a digital video in/out connection. Basically, the camera just sends video, and if there's a computer attached, it receives the video and decides what to do with it on a computer.

USB doesn't work that way, normally. Most tapeless camcorders automatically set up the webcam as a storage device, which is a very distinct thing from a video streaming device.  A storage device is just a disc of some kind... it will show up under some letter (eg, K:) in Windows, when you attach the camcorder.  

Some USB camcorders allow for a "webcam" or "streaming" mode... I didn't find any specifics on your JVC, but I know some of the Panasonics support this. There are two ways. One is that, if you have the camera in record/standby mode, it may just go automatically into webcam mode when you attach USB.

The other way is that the camera will have something in the menus, like "Live mode" or "Webcam mode" that instructs it to configure USB for video streaming rather than storage-class attachement.

And of course, some of the tapeless camcorders have a Firewire port, just like a DV camcorder, which is there specifically to allow for streaming video, etc. You could use your camcorder as a web camera over Firewire, given the proper software... though you might find that's just as expensive as buying
a webcam.

And given the price of actual webcams, I would consider buying one
rather than adding wear and tear to my camcorders, just based on 
price. This is the same  reason I have a DV tape rewind device.. $20 device, $2000
camcorder... easy math.

Can't use camera as a webcam.


Plug it in using your USB cable (it should have come with the camera) and then put the camera in the movie recording mode

(the red icon showing a film camera)

It should install automatically, if not then restart the computer with it plugged in and then check if its on (you can check by logging into MSN messenger and looking below you avatar, if there is a tiny webcam logo then its working

Webcam


For the first user, The screen will cut off on the camera when you plug it into your computer. That is the way it's supposed to work. Make sure your camera is set to webcam. That will be under video resolution in your tools and settings screen. Looking at your camera, it will (or should) be the bottom left button. The camera won't work properly on your computer in Hi Def and that's probably why Yahoo won't recognize it. The resolution is just way too much for it to handle. Hope this helps some.

For the second one, did you install your driver software? Good, had to ask, don't cuss me! (HaHa) Okay, plug in your camera, open the little viewscreen on your camera (this MUST be open or you'll only charge your camera, go to my computer, then to whichever drive your camera is hooked to. It's removable media "L" on my computer, but yours may be different. Click (or double click) on that. You should see an icon that says DCIM, double click. Click on 100 media. Your files should come up. Hope this helps.
