The built-in webcam found on some Acer PCs enables you to capture photos, record video and have live video chat with other users connected to the Internet. Acer PCs use the Crystal Eye Webcam or OrbiCam software to turn on and control the camera. The software can change the picture settings -- it can increase or decrease brightness or zoom in and out -- and take photos. To turn on the webcam, open the camera software from the Start menu.
Click "Start." Click "All Programs." Open the "Crystal Eye Webcam" folder. Click "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" to launch the webcam software and turn on the camera. If "Acer Crystal Eye" isn't available on the Start Menu, go to "Acer," then click "Acer OrbiCam."
Click the drop-down menu on the toolbar to change the resolution. Click the gear icon to change the camera settings.
Click the camera icon to capture a photo. To turn off the Acer webcam, click the "X" button on the top of the window.
Tips & Warnings
- You can record videos through Windows Movie Maker and video chat through third-party applications like Skype.
- Look up the computer's product documentation on the Acer Support page if you can't find your webcam software.
