X201 Integrated Camera

2015-03-01, 13:23 PM

Hi,

 

I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and can't get the Skype and Camera apps to see the integrated camera. Skype for Desktop, Lync and Google Hangouts works, but not the apps. The driver installed is from Ricoh, 23/05/2011, 1.1.0.48.

 

Has anyone got this working OK?

 

Thanks

 

Spencer

Hello,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

It wasn't before. I have now installed the two depencency packages and the app.  Still no camera working for the Camera app. The Lenovo Settings app only shows options for Quick Panel, Pointing Devices, Wireless and Networks, Power and Audio. No camera options.

 

For Windows 8.1, which of the Lenovo drivers/software needs to be installed? I think I have now tried all of them from the Lenovo support site.

 

Regards,

Spencer
