How to Use the PS3 Eye on Skype


The PlayStation 3 Eye is a tool for the PlayStation 3 that captures your movements and images and displays them on the television screen. You can hook up your PlayStation 3 Eye to your computer. Once it is on your computer, it functions as a basic Web camera. This means you can then connect to Skype and use it for video conferencing over the Skype network. If you already own a PlayStation 3 Eye, then you do not need to buy a separate Web camera for your computer.

  • Download the driver for the PS3 Eye from the Code Laboratories page (see Resources). Download the file under "CL Eye Platform Driver."

  • Double click on the driver you downloaded. Be sure your camera is not connected.

  • Plug in your PS3 Eye into an open USB port.

  • Click "No Not This Time" when "Found New Hardware Wizard" opens. Click "Next."

  • Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click "Next."

  • Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install." Click "Next."

  • Select "PS3Eye Camera (x32)." Click "Next."

  • Click "Finish."

  • Open "Skype." Select "Tools," "Options" and then "Video Settings."

  • Select "PS3 Eye Camera" as your webcam and click "OK."

Tips & Warnings

  • If you do not see your PS3 Eye as a webcam, then register it with direct show by clicking the "Start" menu, then "Run," then type "regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\AlexP\"" and click "OK." The PS3 Eye should now be in Skype.
