Windows 7: Webcam software


28 Jul 2009   #1

Window 7 build 7600, Xp pro(VM)
 
 
Webcam software

My webcam`s software is too old and I cant find its udgrade version on their website(driver is working fine in windows 7). So I need a new software.


Do you guys know any software(preferably free) that captures still images as well as videos with good looking UI and some advanced tools??

I'm also looking for one. I need one that does a video window on my desktop with the content from MY webcam. So that I see what my webcam is filming! Is this possible?
(Must be on the desktop, can be via Adobe Air or Windows Gadgets, but not via browser!)
I tried a lot of software, none did it!

@zigzag3143: ?...I do have a"Hercules Dualpix HD", which I just bought two days ago, only to see that they advertise several new models on their website since today! *doh* But shouldn't be the webcam model somewhat irrelevant? What I need is a proper software! Because although their software is great, the problem is simply that I can't get it to stick to the foreground in Windows!

Or is there an option to implement this for any application window?

Somethings I had come across under Windows Gadgets. I never tried them so I can't vouch for them.
The second one looks like what you are looking for.

@zigzag3143: Yes.

@techs: Thanks, yet it doesn't work (on x64). But I found "Windows/VistaCam Self Shot!", yet I don't get the stuff into the foreground yet. I'll look further.

*edit* SOLVED: Ok, of course the Windows Gadgets can be brought on top, though I had a hard time finding it! You have to really click on the lower border to get the proper context menu!

Windows7 64bit Upgrade clean install.
 
 

I'm using two different MS webcams.. VX-2000 and -5500, both running under Windows 7 ver7100 using MS Live Desktop app (not browser) runs pretty quick, I had Logitech QuickCams before but they had major compatibility probelms under both Vista and Windows 7, so I went the MS route.. Hope that helps
