Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Webcams, part of CompTIA A+ (220-901) Cert Prep: 3 Peripherals and Building a PC.
- Everybody loves web cameras.…I mean if you think about it,…they're such a handy tool…for us to talk to people overseas,…or in my case I love talking to different schools…who are using my courseware to learn about…A+, Network+, and other certifications.…So, webcams are great.…Now, I'm talking to you from my favorite webcam,…it's a high definition Microsoft webcam.…I absolutely love it.…And they're fairly easy, like any USB device.…You install the drivers, then you plug 'em in.…Go ahead and check your Device Manager,…make sure we don't have any scaries,…and then you just use the device.…
The secret is, is that you have to have…applications that know how to use it.…So I'm talking to you from my Skype configuration right now,…and as I'm installing Skype,…it's asking me questions like, where are my speakers?…Where are my microphone?…Where's my video?…And you can see that right there.…So, I'm just gonna go ahead and hit continue.…And I'm running on Skype.…And I hope nobody calls me right now…'cause that would be a little distracting.…
