Instructions for a CyberLink Webcam

Save

CyberLink Webcams come with YouCam software designed with a user friendly interface for capturing and manipulating videos and pictures. CyberLink Webcams plug into the USB port on your computer for immediate plug and play use. YouCam software is integrated with a face tracking feature that is used to map the users facial movement and add features such as funny hats or googly eyes. CyberLink's official website offers software files and hardware drivers for download along with technical support and help databases.

  • Insert the YouCam software disk and follow the installation wizard to install the YouCam Webcam software. If the Webcam was purchased used or did not include a software disc, you may download any free Webcam software that supports CyberLink Webcams.

  • Slide the Webcam lens cover up so that the camera lens is showing and plug the CyberLink Webcam USB cord into the USB port of your computer. The USB port should be located in either the front or back of a desktop computer. On a laptop the USB ports are often in the back or on either of the sides.

  • Open the YouCam software manually by accessing the Windows start bar menu, choosing "Programs" and clicking on the "CyberLink" menu and then the "YouCam" software icon. If you are using a different Webcam software, you may open it instead.

  • Choose a display setting on the dialog box that opens when the YouCam software is loaded for the first time. The higher the quality, the larger the file size of the videos and pictures will be. The display settings may always be changed later on by accessing the program settings from the "Help" menu on the top menu bar of YouCam.

  • Capture snapshots and still photos by clicking the "Snapshot" button on the YouCam software. You will then be prompted with a "Save File" dialog box and asked to choose a folder to save the file to. Select a folder from the drop down menu and then click "Save."

  • Record videos by clicking the "Record" button on the YouCam software to start recording from the Webcam. Stop recording by clicking the "Record" button again. You will then be prompted with a "Save File" dialog box and asked to choose a folder to save the file to. Select a folder from the drop down menu and then click "Save."

  • Slide the lens cover over the Webcam lens to stop the Webcam from capturing images when you are finished. After saving all of your files, close out of the YouCam software by clicking the "X" in the upper right corner of the program. It is now safe to unplug the CyberLink Webcam from the USB port of your computer.
