  • Backup cam + Road runner help

    Hey all, I have a 3com home connect USB webcam I plan to use as a backup cam. I am using Road Runner front end. For some reason, I can't get the Winamp TV plugin to reconize my camera.

    In the Video tab, it sees the driver for it. Then, when I go to "Add Manually" my camera, in the "Other inputs" drop down menu, all that shows is "Default". For some reason, it's not seeing my camera. All drivers are installed correctly along with Road Runner and Winamp and plugins.

    Any suggestions? Also, I don't know what "WDM" means in the FAQ on this subject. What's it mean to have a "WDM Webcam"?

    Alright, for some reason. Just playing around, I opened Road Runner and hit TV and it works. Odd. Thanks anyways, guys.

      WDM means "Windows Driver Model", it's the native type of drivers used by Windows 2k/XP.

          for some reason though FrodoCam slows the frame rate from 25+ to less than 10fps @ 640x480.

          Other than that and the fact it doesn't record or capture its perfect

              not to hijack the thread, but topic is similar

              does anyone know of a camera app that has no UI? just a single window for the camera video and no buttons?

                  Alot of cam tools have a feature to reverse the image.

                          Logitech Drivers allow you to invert the camera image ... other than that you'd need a little application... AMCAP is the simplest thing I know for camera.. and works very well, but it is menu based (not that you need to use the menu).. don't think it has "reverse image though"..

                              Can somone help me invert my intel? (Damn that sounds bad)

                              I hooked up an Intel® Deluxe PC Camera Model CS330 ( http://support.intel.com/support/cre.../CS-015592.htm )
                              And i got it to work with RR using the same TV function as JeremyM (thanx btw).

                              However, Intel isn't providing the drivers for this (plug n play only) So is there a 3rd party i can use to invert the image?
