Set up a WebCam

Issue

How do I set up a webcam?

 

Environment

Windows

 

Resolution

Most webcams will work by plug-n-play, meaning all you need to do is connect it to the computer, and the computer will do the rest.

Some webcams require the manufacturer's device drivers. These cameras usually come with an installation disk. If you lose the disk, drivers and instructions can be found on the manufacturer's website.

 

Computer not recognizing the webcam that was plugged in?

  • Try it in a different port
  • Try shutting down the computer, booting up again, and then plug it in.
