  1. Instructions
    • 1 Open your browser and download Dell's Integrated Webcam Application.
    • 2 Run the installation once the download has completed, following the on-screen instructions.
    • 3 Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
    • 4 Open the program with which you want to use the cam (e.g. Yahoo! Messenger, AIM, Skype).
    • 5 Open the program's preferences (usually found under the "Tools" menu).
    • 6 Locate the "Video" settings. Most programs will have a tab labeled "Video" where you can adjust these settings.
    • 7 Select "Dell Integrated Webcam" under the heading labeled "Select Video Device" (or something similar).
    • 8 Establish a video chat with a contact to ensure that the webcam is working. If using a program to record your video, attempt a trial recording.

Just displays black screen


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

If its just shows a black screen you will have to download the software again
If it broadcasts OK - you need to configure your cam to the chat program you want to use - add more info to your question

Philips Webcam SPC110NC doesnt work with Yahoo Messenger as advertised. Packaging says it works with MSN/Yahoo/AIM, but when troubleshooting Yahoo IM using AMCAP.EXE (as per the Yahoo webcam help site), it shows color space/compression used by this product is MJPG and this is the only option. Yahoo IM only supports RGB 24, I420, or IYUV.

WEBCAM NOT WORKING WITH YAHOO MESSENGER


Go to section B. Yahoo in info below.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Philips SPC110NC/27 webcam doesn't work with any chat service.. skype yahoo..


Guys I got one (SPC110NC ) today and it behaved as follows

1. Plug and play .. so windows XP (SP2) recognised it instantly.
2. images were recorded from the general webcam application (defaalu XP one ).
3. Skype however gave the error that was somewhat like " Skype cannot access ur webcam etc ..."

Apparently for Skype 3 and higher u need a special driver .. which u can get at

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=US&slg=AEN&cat=PC_CAMERAS_CA&sct=WEBCAMS_SU&session=20080804034458_66.249.71.24&grp=PC_PRODUCTS_GR&ctn=SPC110NC/27&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software

The user manual doesnot specify the exact url of the drivers , though it specifies the need of installing them.

Get the driver , install it and skype hopefully will work fine. it worked for me after this 30 min exercise ...
