Sony TRV22 as webcam?

I have the sony dcr-trv22 camcorder and it says in the specs that it can be used as a web-cam. But it does not say anywhere in the manual how to do this and I have tried everything on my computer with the usb and firewire and codecs and software etc. but I cant figure it out. Does anybody know how to use the TRV22 as a web-cam?

Download the usb driver from sony support site and install that first - yes it says the camera does not support streaming! Of course it does! Connect the camera now NOT earlier. If you do get the new hw detected prompt point to the downloaded driver section on your pc and navigate to the relevant os section e.g. xp or 2000... you should be good now. Make sure you select camera source in your im software.

First be sure that "USB STREAM" is on. This can be found in the menu for either "CAMERA" or "VCR" menus: FN -> MENU -> toolbox icon -> USB STREAM Secondly, make sure there is no tape in the camera. This disables the "auto sleep" mode so your camera doesn't constantly shut off after 4 min. FYI: you can also use it as a "webcam" in VCR mode to show the person a previously recorded section of tape. Also you can run other video through the unit. :In CAMERA mode: FN -> ETC -> DISPLAY -> LCD This allows a secondary unit or VCR or whatever to connect via RCA jacks to play across your "webcam". I take video in HDTV on my Canon TX1 and show the clips to my friends on Skype through my TRV22.

It?s supposed to be very easy. You should connect you camera through the USB port, turn it on, and then you have a new webcam. Maybe the cable or the connection is busted. Daniel

Windows XP & Vista should automatically recognize the camera (hardware) when you plug in the USB cable. You don't need the Sony software.

Downloading to Macintosh


Hello! I guess you cannot download a video from your Sony DCR-TRV22 to iMovie not unless you have to capture it first. if you gonna capture a movie from your handy cam you need an appropriate software and then load it to iMovie so you can edit or whatever things you want to do with it. And be sure that the extension file name of the movie is .avi, cause it is how iMovie could read it.

Just FYI, www.silentwitness.com has Sony modify the camcorders for use in mobile applications so they don't shutdown. I have no cure for this, but I do know the stock models are programmed to do this to prevent overheating. It has to do a lot with the warranty. i.e. you have a one year warranty. The unit can't (without modifications) run 24x7. Said modification almost triples the price of the camera.
