Hi,

I'd like to try out the web cam on my G74SX but I'm failing to find a program in the all programs list of this laptop that would have anything to do with using the web cam.

Could somebody please tell me what program ASUS installed on the G74SX that utilizes the web cam?

Thanks,

greate

Okay.

I start Asus virtual camera, but all it seems to do is put an icon down in my system tray, but nothing else. Double clicking on that icon in the system tray doesn't do anything, and right clicking only allows me to set some settings for it.

Am I to assume that ASUS does not include an actual program to use the webcam (I'm new to webcams, haven't used anything like it since the old days of cuseeme, and that was always with an external cam.

I have this same issue. I downloaded some other random camera-recorder programs off download.cnet.com but they all seemed to only record at extremely low framerates, as if they weren't working properly.

I also have not done anything with a webcam in years, so there may be some basic thing here i'm missing...

I tried the asus camera program(before deleting) also with no luck. But i'm not webcam savvy by any means so maybe I too am missing something.

I read the manual last night and there is a fn key combo that opens lifeframe program. I don't know if it was preinstalled or not since I downloaded lifeframe2 off of the Asus site before stumbling upon it in the manual.

However, it seems a rather basic push and record program and there seems to be some really bad lag in recording. I see a button to email people through it but not anythimg that might allow me to video conference with somebody on the internet. Perhaps if I really wanted to do that, I'd need to buy a piece of quality software that is specific to that.

I was kind of hoping I'd be able to do that "right out of the box" so to speak with my parents now that they live all the way across the U.S. from my family.

If you're using MSN or skype, the webcam works out out the box. the thing is, there is no 'special nifty options' software bundled with that camera except lifeframe.
you don't need it, only the driver that is already installed .
