The Gigaware 25-157 is a computer webcam that works with Windows operating systems and supports a maximum resolution of 1280 by 960. Once you have it connected and installed, you can record videos, take photos and share both of them with friends. A microphone is included so you also have audio capture. To install it, all you need is a CD or DVD drive and a free USB outlet.
Place the Gigaware 25-157 on a flat surface and adjust its angle.
Connect the cord in the back of the webcam to a USB port on your computer.
Insert the CD that came with the webcam into your CD or DVD drive and click "Play CD" when the "Autorun" window appears on your computer.
Follow the installation instructions. In addition to installing drivers, the CD will also offer you a chance to install additional software suites, including MediaImpression for video editing, Webcam Companion 3 for video sharing and ArcSoft Magic-i for face tracking.
Reboot your computer when the installation is complete.
