Windows 8: The “metro” version of Skype (“Skype for Windows 8”) may not detect DroidCam, in which case you will need Skype for Desktop.
– Quit all programs before installing DroidCam.
– After installation, re-open chat programs (eg. Skype/Live Messenger/etc), and these should recognize “DroidCam” as a webcam. You should also be able to pick DroidCam as a microphone. Try restarting the computer if the webcam is not being detected.
– There is no difference between Droidcam Source 1 – 3. Please use the first one that works. When idle, the output from the webcams will be a static color (orange, blue, or green). The “Mini 240p” video source is included to support some versions of Adobe Flash, and older programs like Yahoo Messenger. Otherwise it should be avoided.
Next: Connect the client and phone app..
