T520 Webcam

2011-10-20, 14:28 PM

I can get the webcam to switch on when I use Skype no problem at all.

 

But does it have the ability to switch on in another way.  Was thinking of using it to record some blog info and then upload it but I can't find out how to do it.  Do I need another application to be able to do this on my dell it had its own software but I can't find the same on the 520??

You'll need to find some sort of camera recording program.

You can take still shots using Fn+F6, but no video.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen

Thanks for that seem's like a trick missed if you ask me.

 

What would anyone suggest as being a good utility to do the recording?  Not my sort of area.

Try using Windows Live Movie Maker. I think it comes preloaded with Windows or it's free to download from Microsoft.
