I have an oovoo account and i've just downloaded it onto my laptop. when i tested the camera, an avatar was there from the live cam avatar, that i guess is automatic. how do i remove it and get it to show the real me instead of an avatar?

I have a USB webcam and I want to make it wireless. I understand there are solutions available in the market but I want to do this myself. Also i'd like to know what is the best way to increase transmission range for a Video and Audio signal.
May be somewhat similar to posted file for "Tripod Meets Logitech Webcam" ?. It seems more difficult to remove the two parts of the casing with the E2500 than for the posted QuickCam Messenger?

When we are having with our video-conference with our friends, we always feel that the party is staring down at the screen rather than looking at you. It seems like as if he's not listening to your conversation. Therefore, is there any possible solutions to solve this constraint, so that we will look more natural and trustworthy while video-conferencing?The image below explains the scenario.

My computer has a tv input. I think I can use that to connect my camcorder to the computer. I'll probably need some software. Once I can view it on my computer what does it take to put it on a website for viewing?
Asked by chitch7 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
The camcorder effectively connects with iMovie but it's not recognized by not iChat, Skype, or any other video conferencing programs.
I have a TV of aiwa model A1419 from past 25 yrs at home which I have not been using it since past 1-2 years and have not even started it because I bought a plasma TV 2 yrs back but my old TV even works fine till date if cable is plugged in. Now since I have this TV lying around and I also got a Lifecam Show & Lifecam HD 5000 webcams lying around I want to make a better use of it. So I would like to know how can I make them work as a security camera's outside my house door and watch anyone who comes at my door on the TV itself. The distance between my house door and the TV would be of at least 5-6 meters.

Hi all, I've got an opportunity to lay hands on this sweet wifi webcam: http://goo.gl/I4hpFZ Thing is, I've already got one monitoring my 3D printer, and I'm not exactly chomping at the bit to spy on my roommates when I'm away. I've got a couple ideas about what to do with it, but I thought I'd throw it open to the community: got any cool ideas for interesting ways to use/alter/hack/repurpose something like this? Currently I'm considering tearing into it and using the remotely controllable pan and tilt motors to turn it into a mars rover for my house, possibly fitted with a laser to annoy my cats. What do you think? Ian

I'd like to see if i can put a wide angle lens my cameras and take off the IR filter. If i can get my hands on these manuals it might help me decide if that's possible and then make the project a little more "disaster resistant" ;)

Hello everyone, So here is the deal, I wanna make a necklace that has a little camera inside that can shoot small videos, just for those moments when you wish you had a video camera, so you just happen to be wearing one. I thought about buying one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Lighter-Spy-DVR-USB-Mini-DV-Hidden-Camera-Camcorder-/150632633728?_trksid=p4340.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DDLSL%252BSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%252BDDSIC%26otn%3D8%26pmod%3D230632642485%252B230632642485%26po%3D%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D1442896368867548212&_qi=RTM637057#ht_2083wt_1139 and adapting with the following tutorial. https://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Hidden-Camera-on-the-cheap-Lighter-mod-B/ The main problem I am seeing is that I want to keep all the electronics towards the back of the necklace, with just the camera at the front. That means I need to extend the ribbon cable which looks extremely tricky, and I dont know where I would buy one from. Does anyone have any ideas on this? -Derek

I have a laptop, fujitsu t4020D. I would like to try and add a webcam to the display bezel. I can find component parts (webcams) from other computers. What I want to know, is it even remotely possible to wire the cable coming from the webcam to use usb, so i could theoretically plug it into my usb port?

If you're looking for some inspiration, check out this crazy webcam collaboration video. It's absolutely worth watching the whole way through. After the first 50 seconds it starts to get much more interesting.via Gizmodo

I came across a youtube video recently where they use 4 webcams and motion capture software to do a cheap diy version of motion capture. Info seems pretty limited here and I can definitely use it for my indie film. Please let me know if you've used such a set up and what software you used

I have a Microsoft Lifecam which used to work brilliantly for MSN, until recently. I haven't actually done anything to the settings, to my knowledge, but my problem is with only MSN. I can see myself in my webcam when i open up the lifecam programme (allows you to take videos and photos). But when I try to use it on MSN, I can see it but the person to whom I am talking doesn't recieve a webcam invitation. When I try to make a video call, it works fine bar the fact that they see a picture of a webcam with a red cross on it. I can see myself but they can't.

I am trying to build a device that will simply display a webcam on a LCD screen I pulled from a palm pad(or something similar) with a on-off switch. However I have no real knowledge of screens or cameras, the LCD has a 40 pin(if I counted right) ribbon cable, and a second ribbon with about 5 pins(the touch screen part?) and the webcam obviously uses a USB. How would I go about setting up the two with a battery and an on-off switch?

Ive got two webcams from other laptops, my laptop doesnt have a built-in one but id like it to. i can do all the cutting, mounting, and wiring, but its the software thats not working right. ive installed all of the proper drivers, and the webcams are both recognized by the computer as webcams, but when i try to use a program to get video feed from either one, i get nothing. why isnt it working? on my last laptop, i could do this just fine. i have the webcams each wired to a male usb plug, and on my old laptop i could just plug it in and it'd work, but with this one, its not. any ideas why? im sure the wires are all correct and that i have all of the correct drivers installed.

Hey guys and gals, I am playing around with a old Pentax 110 camera and I noticed that my cheap Labtec webcam fits almost perfect in the backing of the camera. This works VERY well because I have numerous lenses that I can switch out. I immediatly noticed the quality of the image is many time better doing this. The main problem I have is the webcam fits perfect rotated sideways. When I use the cam the video/pics are all rotated. Is there any software that will run on a PC that will rotate this for me? Also out of curiosity is there anyway via firmware update, software etc... to increase the overall size of the image or is it hardware dependant? I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks, Jester

I'm trying to develop a system that needs video input through USB. I don't know how to do this. I've seen OpenCV and Xuggler, but I don't know how to actually use them. I'd vastly prefer OpenCV. Or heck, maybe it's possible in "standard" Java. If anyone knows how to do this, that would be awesome.
