My Big Accomplishment
I hooked up two cams on one computer. I know, it's been done before. But I'm still proud. To make the achievement more commendable, I got them both running on Julie's old POS Cyrix machine downstairs. There was a time when that monster would barely support one cam.

The moral of the story is that 3com's website sucks. Their famous and popular HomeConnect Digital Webcam is actually made by Vista Imaging. I visited the VI and it took exactly two clicks to find the MulitCAM Utilities I needed. After that, it was 5 minutes before I had both cams up and running. Yay!

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

Hiya :)
I know what you mean about webcam32's site...bleh poop. Anyway, I found your LJ name on the "LJ Contributor's" page for graphics and such and wanted to ask you something. I would love to put Live Journal banners on my sites but they are all so huge. Can you or someone else make a few cool banners that are 100 x 40 ? Or do you know of someone who I can ask? Thanks! :)

Sorry, that's not my department. All I did was design the little pencil logo. I don't know who's in charge of that stuff.

dude..

I don't care that you're mad at me.. you have to know you rock for giving out the threecom advice!! I've had a brand new threecom cam in the box waiting to go onto a machine, but I don't have one with a working usb port. Cool, now I can throw two cams on my server. Thanks!

Re: dude..

Here's what you want to do. Uninstall all the 3com drivers from your machine. Then download the ViCAM MultiCam Utilities. Install them. Turn off the computer, plug in the cams, boot up again. Then run the MultiCam Wizard from the start menu group. You can give each cam a unique name, and ChillCam will start treating them as seperate devices.

Viola.

BEWARE

None of this stuff works for the 3com LITE. That's a totally different deal. If you have the black cams, then you're good to go.
