Summary: There's currently no way to access the webcams h.264 stream outside of Skype. I tried uvcdynctrl, v412-ctl, UVCView.x86.exe, YAWCam, and even Sony Vegas. None of them can find or view the h.264 stream. The only other stream available with the webcam is a raw YUV stream which will only allow applications to record at 9 frames per second at 720p rather than the advertised 22 FPS.
Summary: The webcam worked very well on our computer. However, I was lead to believe (by Panasonic) that it was possible for it to be compatible with the Panasonic Blu-ray DVD player DMP-BDT220 for Skyping on a TV large screen. It was not compatible, and I have returned the webcam.
Summary: right out of the box, it starts working. no CD, no need to do anything. just plug it in and it works!! very impressive. and the picture quality is just wonderful. i have experimented with this webcam with several computers. with the newest,fastest computer,the picture quality is very good,with an older computer,it is still fine. this product adjusts itself.one of the best webcams out there.
Summary: Apparently this little webcam performs its compression on board rather than having the PC perform this. It is great value and it really has a great picture. Really has enhanced our skype conversations. Good Jaaahhhhb!
Summary: I was really excited when I have read about this cam and ordered it immediately. 6 days later (Ordered from UK Store delivered in Germany! Really good!), I eagerly unpacked the cam when it arrived and plugged it into my Windows XP(SP3) pc... The cam is very easy to handle because its a plug and play device. Wow! I was (and still am!) absolutely overwhelmed: Brilliant, absolutely sharp picture in HD quality (720p).
