OK, i need to use my webcam (built in to W500) with GotoWbinar
I need it do "film" me, to broadcast in this online meeting. I just need window of the feed. Is this possible and how?
PS: Joining this forum is a pain in the butt. It does not tell u the password rules, until u make a password. Then it rejects it.... lame
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you go have a look at the Device Driver File Matrix for your computer (at this URL: Drivers and software - ThinkPad W500), you will find that Lenovo provides a driver for the camera. After you install that driver, you can then access and control your camera from whatever application you wish to use it with.
The camera is a bit like a keyboard or a printer, in the sense that there is no unique "program" that is used to operate it. Instead, other applications that you may have installed that can recognize and take advantage of a camera (for example, Skype, or an instant messaging program, or whatever conference software you have) will then be able to use the W500 built-in camera.
You control the built-in camera from within the application you are using, exactly the same concept as how you control a printer or a keyboard from within whatever application you are using.

I'm using T61 laptop and I can't seem to download the Easy Camera software.Everytime I try to download it,it pops out an error window saying the product is not manufactured by the Quanta Computer Inc. Is there any way I can download the Easy Camera software without any hassle?

Several weeks ago I purchased a ThinkPad W520.
It works fine.
Just one issue: Depending on the lighting in the room, the webcam picks up the glow from the green light, which is right next to it. This becomes visible as a green half-circle halo on the left side of the screen that shows me when I am using video conferencing software.
This seems to be a design problem. The green light is positioned too close to the integrated webcam.
