Summary: I bought this in early 2010 for Skype video conference meetings in our office, because it was recommended by Skype and had the most wide-angle lens I could find. At that time it was not specifically advertised as being incompatible with Macs. After using it for several months, and with updates to Skype software and Mac OS, it has proved very flaky, stops sending video after working fine for days, or with people on the call complaining of terrible audio problems.
Summary: I purchased this web cam thinking it would work with the Panasonic blue ray player with Skype. Wrong. The Panasonic web cam for skyping needs to be purchased. My bad.I returned this back to Amazon and will wait till a later date to purchase the correct web cam.
Great Skype Cam, Can't Record Outside of Skype Easily
4 January 2011
Summary: This camera is great if you will primarily use it for Skype, however, if you also want to record videos, without using Skype, there is NO software that comes with it for this purpose. If you plan on doing recording more than video chatting, your better bet is something like the . Wish I had a review like this one before I bought it. I plan on primarily doing recording of videos.
Summary: I recently bought a FV Touchcam N1 and I'm using latest Skype version 188.8.131.52. I have U-verse with 1 mbps upload / 16 mbps download speed and Windows 7. N1 appears as "USB video device" in device manager and driver version is Microsoft /5.1.2600.5512. Other side off the call also has the same setup. My video call resolution is 640X480. How am I gonna be able to switch to 720P, H.264, 22fps! I am not happy!
Cons: Win7 Ultimate не опознает микрофоны камеры. В процессе работы в Скайпе картинка хронически виснет примерно через минуту после начала работы. Если Тачкамы на обоих концах Скайпа, то виснут обе картинки. Если на одном, то картинка виснет у того, у кого Тачкама нет. От производительности компов не зависит, от версий Винды тоже.
