Unable to detect Webcam or Video Source

edited February 2011 in Announcements
I am using the Version 2.6 Beta, and am trying to add video annotations. However, CamStudio will not detect my webcam. I tried this with Version 2.0 also, but it didn't detect it either. My webcam works fine normally, but CamStudio just won't detect it.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium with on a Lenovo laptop with its built-in Easy Camera. I tried reinstalling the driver but it had no effect.


  • Frankly, I've never seen anyone who reported getting video annotations to work. They never worked for me, on three computers, using a Creative Labs webcam, a Logitech one, a Blue Eyeball, and the Microsoft Lifecam Cinema. All the cams work fine normally, just not with CamStudio.

    So, I guess what I'm saying is... you're not alone!

    Has anyone gotten this feature to work? If so, with what webcam and what computer? How did you do it???
