globally / permanently change webcam settings

Q: globally / permanently change webcam settings

hi,
i want to change especially the brightness settings of a webcam.
Does anyone know a way that lets me adjust the settings globally and permanently?(so that those settings apply to all programs that will use the cam without having to re-adjust)
The cam itself is a quite old no-name model. The basic driver which makes it available to applications on the systems miracously still worked though.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

If the cam is that old, its entirely possible that option was never available...

On my Dell XP Pro, msconfig lists a number of applications (not services) from 3rd party vendors, such as HP and QWest, scheduled to launch at start-up. Several times, I've unchecked these items, clicked APPLY, and then re-started my system; nevertheless, when my system has finally rebooted, Windows Task Manager shows them running, and I have to eliminate them in Windows Task manager.

So it appears that somehow, there is some application somewhere that is reversing (i.e. ignoring) my (new) settings I try to establish in msconfig. Is anyone familiar with this problem?

I can figure out several ways of dealing with this problem, such as changing the names of these annoying applications (e.g. from application.exe to application.eze) so they cannot be found (therefore cannot launch), but I'd sure like to know what software it is on my machine that keeps overriding my choices. And also how to change the start-up menu permanently without changing the names of the relevant offending programs.

A:Cannot permanently change msconfig settings

msconfig is a diagnostic utility. If you want to permanently manage startup items you should use a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml).
Uncheck whatever you don't want started in that app and let's go from there.

The camera specs on my new Lenovo Thinkpad X Yoga (gen 1) is 720p HD. But virtualdub and other software will only let me view/record at 640 x 480. I saw another post about another Lenovo that when you pressed Fn + F6 took you to a settings page that allowed you to change the resolution up to 1280 x 720. The laptop comes with Windows 10 and found the Lenovo Settings app that allows you to tweak all kinds of brightness, gamma, etc settings on the camera but no mention of increasing the resolution. There has to be a way to set this, can you guys at Lenovo please help because I need to record in 720p from the webcam!

Hi, all.

I've searched here and Googled. The problem (but no solution) has been posted elsewhere and I'm hoping someone here can help.

Problem: Nearly 1,000 hyperlinks in an Excel 2003 workbook now point to the wrong directory/drive and need to be repointed. For example:

Old hyperlink: ///dsnetapp\\100\125\data\[doc name].pdf
New hyperlink: I:\100\125\data\[doc name].pdf

All of the documents to which the hyperlinks point have been moved to a new drive and no longer work.

What I've tried: Search and replace (doesn't work), manually editing a single hyperlink (doesn't work). Everything reverts back t the ///dsnetapp\\ address. The workbook, worksheet, and cells are not protected. The workbook is not read-only.

The only thing that seems to work is re-doing each hyperlink (go into Edit Hypelink, navigate to new location, select pdf, and save). I would like to find some fix that's less time-consuming and would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.

Ok folks--here's the deal. We have a client list (not set up by me) that has the client numbers listed as the first part of the folder name. So for example, the folder names look like this:

999 (Smith)
1002 (Jones)
1003 (Johnson)

etc. There's a couple thousand. So I am thinking some sort of DOS batch routine to rename all the folders in the directory. Essentially, remove the numbers and put them at the end of the folder name so it looks like this:

(Smith) 999
(Jones) 1002
(Johnson) 1003

Ideally, I would also like to strip the () and add a "-" so:

Smith-999
Jones-1002
Johnson-1003

But obviously that's not as important because the'll still be in alphabetical order even with the ().

The microphone has recently become stuck ON so that all room noises are picked up and played through the speakers, even when Skype is not running (it's not set to open at Startup and I always quit when I've finished using it).

I've owned this laptop for quite a while and had been using Webcam Central to control the Integrated Webcam on my Alienware M17x R4.   I never had any issues using Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or even Windows 10 until my system updated on 8/20/2016 with a scheduled Windows 10 update.
After the windows 10 update my system restarted and the next time I went to use my webcam I noticed that I couldn't control the pan / zoom / or tilt or alter any of the settings in webcam central.  If I attempt to change anything it automatically changes back instantly.  For example of I move the slider to zoom, or attempt to change the pan, it auto goes back to where it was and will not allow me to change the settings.
I also notice that my mouse pointer flickers over the webcam central GUI, meaning, there seems to be some issue with the GUI after the windows 10 update, I assume is also whats causing the settings not to be changed.
I have tried uninstalling both the drivers and software and reinstalling to no avail, same problem is present after reinstallation of both drivers and the webcam central software.
Wondering if anyone else has run into this and whether there was some type of resolution.
I was able to get the pan / zoom / tilt working with 3rd party webcam software, however I would prefer to go back to using webcam central.

When I am typing, sometimes I get the character ? instead of ?. After doing some research, all you need to do is select the English(US) instead of English(Can) in the language bar. Apparently, it seems that this language setting only effects the individual software instead of all the software installed on your computer. So for example, if I changed this language setting in Word, this setting will not roll over to Notepad or Chrome or even the OS.

I am wondering if there is a way to permanently save the English(US) setting so it will apply to all of my software?

A:Change Language Permanently

If you go to Regional and Language Settings in the Control Panel, you should be able to set it to English (United States) so that all software defaults to this. Additionally, you can go to the "Keyboards and Languages" tab and click on "Change Keyboards" to ensure that English (US) is installed. If not, you can add it.

There are a whole bunch of XP services that launch automatically when you start up Windoze. These can be turned off manually by using services.msc.

But I've found that at least some of these can not be turned off permanently. An example is Automatic Updates.

Does anyone know if it is possible to turn these off permanently? One obvious way would be to change the name of the service, and that's not hard to do, but there must be a "proper" way to do it. Anyone have any ideas?

Hmm, you can use a trick as i think you can't change the default font in Wpad.

Create a rtf document with a "space", select the space, choose your font and size, save as your-template.rtf.

Hello all,

this is driving me nuts, also because of the fact that there seems to be no suitable information about that on the net.

I have a computer here that should connect to a WLAN using "WPA2 - Enterprise". For authentication, a computer certificate is used.

If I set the authentication method to "computer authentication" in properties, security settings, the connection is just established fine. However, after a few moments, the connection is terminated and the authentication method is re-set to "user-
or computer authentication".

This causes every connection attempt to fail with the message "A certificate is required for connection to [network name]".


If I then go to the properties of the network connection and set the authentication method to "computer authentication" again, the connection is again established for a few moments - until that setting is again "user- or computer authentication"
and the game starts over from the beginning :(

What is causing that setting to be reverted again and again? Why is my manual configuration not saved?

Thank you very much for all help in advance and kind regards,

Technically, yes, a "resource editor" can be used to alter icons embedded in executables. However, once you start haxx0ring an app, most software vendors would see that as a violation of their terms of use, which is why I won't provide further technical detail (I realise you're asking for entirely innocent reasons).

I can't imagine it would be worth your time though. It's just an icon, after all.

i have no idea why this works but it seems to, and so i wanted to know if there is a way to permanently set the priority of this process to above normal without having to manually adjust it every time i start my computer.

Or, would simply changing the Drive letters work?
if so, how do it do it? Ive tried using the vista maintenance tools, but i get an error saying it cannot be changed because of files in use.

Or, should i get a new harddrive, remove the old drive, install a partition on it named c:, install vista on that. (i would assume the original vista disc i have has the ability to create a partition on it when booting from disc.. its preactivated)

If you wish to continue using %USERNAME% in those environment vars, you could use something like

which will give you REG_EXPAND_SZ along with "%USERNAME% in it.

Hello Decorlady, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might consider giving Windows Live Mail a try instead. It is better in my opinion.

It supports Pop3, IMAP, HTTP website (EX: Hotmail) email, and is a lot more stable. Plus, WLM will minimize to a tray bar icon, checks spelling as you type messages, and has a separate Inbox for each email account. WLM will automatically import Windows Mail messages, accounts, and settings into it. Contacts will have to be manually imported from within WLM. (Tools, Contacts, File, Import, Address book for current Windows User.) To see the Menu bar, press ALT+M and check "Show all menus".

Hi everyone, thanks for looking.
Im running into a particular problem that I cant seem to find the reasons or the settings.

I watch HBO GO (i have a valid subscription) on my Windows 7 Home laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect my TV.

Scenerio 1:
If I leave the close the lid power option on hibernate, I must leave the laptop open and, when I connect the HDMI the TV, it becomes my monitor and I view as the monitor and watch anything full screen no problem.

Scenerio 2:
I change the power option on the lid close to "do nothing". When the HDMI cable is hooked up, if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display, if its closed it displays through the HDMI/TV. This is perfect and exactly what I want.
I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER, if I choose full screen, I get gray borders and the "Full Screen" is not full and just centered.

I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy.
Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change?

Many Thanks in Advance!!!

Max
 

A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

The issue is the apply button is unavailable. I mean you can see the button.. but it's faded and I can't click to it.. Hope that made sense. Anyway it's always been this way since I bought the cam 2 years ago but now it's getting on my nerves because I'm trying to post clips of me on youtube and I look different with every movie because I can't get the settings to the exact precise way I had it before. Is there anyway to get the apply button to function so I can save the settings on my webcam to my liking so it won't change every time I record and take pictures?

I just discovered tokbox.com, works pretty neat.

I've got an old Logitech QuickCam Pro4000 and it takes an overly bright
video, even with most of hte lights turned off in the room. Just the light from
the monitor washes out the color of my shirt for instance.

I couldn't remember which model I had and so downloaded software and
drivers for the Pro 5000 model at first, and saw that it was possible to
adjust camera brightness etc. But of course my 4000 wouldn't work with
the 5000 software. So, deleted that and downloaded the correct software.
But can't find any way to adjust the brightness.

Any ideas?

XP sp3, ASUS board that I'm plugging the sb2 from the camera into.

Thanks!!

I'm looking for any software program that will adjust the WHITE BALANCE
on a built-in webcam I have (Lenovo S510P).
 
Most software I have tried so far (YouCam, Lenovo Easy Capture) do not allow any white balance adjustments to be made.  It's either greyed out or it's not even in the options.
 
I can adjust everything else fine (brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, gamma, backlight, sharpness), but there's no white balance!
 
You know how under different lighting (tungsten, fluorescent, sunlight, etc) the white balance makes the color/tone different?  That's what I'm looking for on the built-in webcam.

How do I adjust the setting of the camera please?  I am told its (a) a bit fuzzy although it is clean and (b) not close up enough i.e. I want it to show my head and shoulders only rather than from waist up and most of the room.  ThanksIf you need the model number it says Model 15-aw008AX but also says Model 3165NGW

I have a HP Probook 4710s with built in webcam "HP Webcam [2 MP Fixed]" i don't like the settings that it has i can't see myself especially i'm black. When i put it on 640x480 i don't see a thing but when it's on 1280x720 its way better! I click on apply to save the settings on 1280x720 but when i'm having a video chat on Skype, Facebook, Msn ect... it's set to 640x480(bad quality =/ ). I have a friend who has a HP Probook 4520s his webcam is so... perfect i just love it! I asked him for his settings he didn't know where to find, neither did i. So does anyone know some good settings for this webcam?

Unfortunately, a lot of online applications like Skype etc default to VGA even if you have set a higher resolution for your webcam and I am not sure whether they can be changed. The important thing to remember when using a webcam is to ensure you have plenty of background light as this can make a dramatic difference even if the webcam itself is not great. You should be able to find the webcam settings by typing "webcam" into the search box after clicking on start in W7 (if that is what you have) or searching through the control panel.

Hope this is of help.

I cant click Allow in Flash player settings to allow my webcam. Nothing happens when I click allow. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Ive also tried different browsers. There is apparently a fix for XP but none that I could find for Vista. Any help? Im using a Microsft Webcam VX-1000 and on Vista Ultimate SP1.

My webcam is working fine, but there are very few options/features in Settings.  I thought maybe I needed Webcam Central, but I'm not finding it in in my Dell Downloads. Is Webcam Central available for my laptop (Windows 10-Inspiron 15 5559), so that I have more options with the webcam or is there some other software that I need?

A:Webcam settings-Windows 10-Inspiron 15 5559

ct44,
Dell Webcam Central is not supported in Windows 10. You would use Skype in Windows 10 with the WebCam.
