  1. I'm not sure if I'm in right place here. sorry if I'm not. I recently bought a computer that has windows 7 on it and it came with a camera in it. How do I get that to work for a live feed to someone elses computer?

    Thanks

    1) What is the make/model of your computer? Didn't it come with documentation on how to use the built in cam???

    2) Have you looked to find the cam listed in DevMgr? (probably under Imaging Devices category). Does it appear? Does have it have any yellow or red icons appear?
