I thought so. Have you tried/seen the software? My brother has a DV something or other and had to download it for him, and was quite impressed with the avatar things that use facial recognition, I was sat for about 5 minutes just pulling faces at myself.

The webcam is used in conjunction with other programs such as MS Messenger, Skype and a few more that I can't remember. When you install these programs you can talk live with video to other friends.

I'm sure if you look in your main menu or Accessories menu you may find a HP program that you can use for your webcam. The bottom line is what do you want to use it for? To make a video message and save it?

If you have aFacebook account you can make a video using your webcam. It is like when you want to upload a picture to your message area.

Here is what facebook menu would look like.

so I cant just turn it on on my computer to fiddle with it and see how it works, I have to actually connect with a service like the ones you describe and it will just...what come on?
I'd like to be able to create a recorded video to upload somewhere or talk live to another location.

I cant find any actual hp software on my computer other than the properties tell me that I have the latest driver no need to update. I guess I'm asking where is the turn on button or program and if I dont have one what is the right one to download?

Take a look at my LINK

You may have some HP software on your computer already that you just don't know is there that you can use.

Do you have an webcam icon on your desktop to click on or something?
