Setting up and testing your webcam

Webcams and microphones can be mischievous at the best of times, hopefully this little guide will help eradicate any of the little problem people encounter when using them.

  1. Check everything is plugged in correctly. Just take a minute to make sure all the cables are connected properly (if you're on a Mac, this won't apply).

  2. Check you have Flash installed on your machine.
    If you head over to this test page: http://mailvu.com/testCamera/TestYourWebCam.html it will give you a full suite of tools to check your webcam - firstly though it will let you know if you're missing Flash on your machine or you're running an out of date version. If you are out of date, or don't have it installed at all, it will provide a link to Adobe's website to download the software.
