Camera detection problem

Post by Roberto » Wed Jul 19, 2006 6:46 pm


After reading very good reviews on Yawcam I proceeded to install it on my Pentium IIII.

I am using an AVerTV Hybrid + FM PCI card with a video camera plugged into the card video socket.

Yawcam_beta_2006-05-17 will not detect the camera (or videocard) in auto cam detect mode nor in manual detect mode. :cry:

Has anyone had similar problems with the AVerTV card? If so, can it be solved?

Help will be most welcome.

A workaround that has been proven to work before is to first start another software that uses the TV-card, and then start Yawcam. This might help Yawcam find your webcam.

I too have the same problem - BUT I do NOT have any other video capture devices. So, how do I find a workaround?
