Monitor with inbuilt webcam
Was wondering if anybody knows a good monitor with built in webcam and speakers? looking at not buying speakers and Wweb cam separately after buying a mini pc.
Ankit_Patel

Would you recommend wide-screen monitors or should I stick to 24inch standard screens

Buy a proper 1440p 144hz

Asus, Philips, Dell, HP and quite a few other manufacturers have monitors with built-in webcams. Personally I'd rather have them as separates as you can also upgrade camera and position it better,

Webcam and microphone without adware, etc?
I bought a Pindows webcam and camera from a deal mentioned on here last month as it was on a special Amazon offer (with a £15 discount). However, I went to set it up last night and… Read more

That's what I've got.Had it about 8 years ;) .Used it a few times.Don't use it now,only every now & then to make sure it works.

Sophiasky

Thank you. The one that I sent back was £29 but reduced to £14 (special Amazon promotion) - it's back up to the original price now.

No, it's just a camera app. But the microphone should work fine in supported apps, eg. Teams, Skype, etc. Seems you didn't need the software. Afraid if you buy cheap then it's foolish to expect instructions and after-sales to be as good as a brand like Logitech.

slimy31

No software, it registers as a generic camera and microphone and just 'works'. Even the instructions just say 'plug it in'.

Sophiasky

Feel a bit silly now as from what some people are saying, I didn't need to install the software (Potplayer) as suggested on the instruction leaflet. However, when I requested a return last night to Amazon, they said it had to be posted back by tomorrow, so decided to send it off after I had returned from work this morning (as working again tomorrow). I'll now have to look at getting another one - I'm going to look at what some of you have suggested on here. Thank you.

Webcam logitec C922
I would like to use the webcam to watch the dog when he is left alone at home on my mobile. Is there a mobile app that I can download for android to do this? Or failing that, a… Read more

yes, it runs without any need for drivers or any software download. i did try looking for it in the camera app on the laptop as i did think it would appear in there but it didn't, which was why i couldn't test if it was working. i have got it to work through skype to test it now and it is fine. a bit disappointing as the picture quality doesn't seem to be any better than the camera on my laptop. but hubby got it for free from work so can't complain :) i guess it may have a wider angle than the laptop camera and possibly better for long shots to the laptop camera. i was a bit disappointed that it was usb connected as you would expect a webcam to be bluetooth connected to the laptop so that you can move it around a lot easier, without a cable trailing it.

Many webcams these days are "Universal Video Device", using a standard Windows driver. To activate the webcam, just run the Camera app in Windows... My webcam doesn't have an active light, so I don't know if the preview video in Camera would activate it

You can turn an old android phone into an IP camera, here's one app I've used in the past:- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pas.webcam&hl=en_GB&gl=US To access it remotely, the best solution would be to run your own VPN server on your home network, which would allows you to remotely connect to you LAN with high security and could be installed on a PC or on a Openwrt flashed router or a raspberry pi (this doesn't use or involve signing up to a VPN service). Wireguard is a popular one and available in Openwrt. You would need to sign up to a free Dynamic DNS service, unless your ISP assigns you a static IP.

mutley1

thanks, this is very useful information (y)

mutley1

are you sure? it didn't say that in the manual, or i missed it. normally when you plug in a new device on the laptop, it automatically download the drivers needed, but it didn't seem to do so for the webcam. i will have a look. the laptop does recognise that the webcam is connected as it appears on the connected devices on the laptop settings, which was why i thought it had already got the necessary software downloaded.
