cant get webcam on laptop to run with onlocation

Nov 20, 2010 4:01 PM

OnLocation can see the webcam in the drop down box but does not turn on the camera to see anything.


The only way I have found to turn on the webcam is the program that came with the laptop.


Got a HP ENVY 17


Any ideas.


It works fine with firewire with camera but just not webcam yet.

    OnLocation works only with cameras connected by FireWire. The fact that webcams show in the list of devices is a bug.

    And going by many posts in the last year, having the webcam enabled can actually prevent OnLocation from operating successfully. So keep that in mind if OL starts behaving erratically.
