The main issues with the camera application are that the camera software may not be compatible with some Windows® operating system versions. e.g. if a user downgrades that operating system from Windows Vista® to Windows® XP, the operating system may not be able to recognize the device software. In addition, the camera application software may not be compatible with other third party software i.e. MSN® video chat and Yahoo! ® messenger. In addition the command buttons for the camera on the camera’s tray-bar may not work whenever a user tries to activate them. Other issues may be that other applications could be looping the camera making it impossible to use it with other applications.
Tips for camera software
In order to make use of the built-in camera, the user has to make sure that the camera’s device driver has been loaded and corresponds to the operating system platform. The user can then update the camera software drivers to be compatible with third party application software i.e. MSN® or Skype™. By going to the start button and clicking on the control panel menu option. In the window that appears, click on system and maintenance and in the dialogue box click device manager. Depending on the camera model in the notebook, right click name_of_camera USB 2.0 camera and click on update driver software.
In cases where one does not have the device drivers, then downloading a device driver from the developer’s support website is the next option. However, one has to be aware of the model and series of the camera fixed in the laptop. The main camera software that are available for download include web camera version 220.127.116.11 supporting Windows® 7, version 1.7.270.1204L for Windows® XP. Other camera application software is also available and can be downloaded for free.
To ensure that camera software is compatible with third party software and that no conflict arises when trying to use the camera with other applications, always obtain regular updates for the camera device software. In addition, have an anti virus program as some viruses may take control of your camera making it virtually impossible to use the camera with other applications.
