Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the Aiptek A-HD to work as a webcam? I can't even seem to get the camera to turn on when it's plugged in through USB so I'm not even sure it's possible. Is there a tutorial somewhere? Does anyone know what software to use, or even how to get the camera to turn on when it's plugged into USB?

I've seen lots of chatter about how it's possible, about how some software somewhere (possibly on the disc that comes with the camera) easily solves the problem. I've tried calling Aiptek several times but their hold time is ridiculously long (and I have no landline). I've tried emailing them but have not received a reply. I've also searched here but only found slight mention of it (like fishy's comment here - oct 2, 2:14pm: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...ht=a-hd+webcam ).

I do have a dazzle, but I'd rather not go that route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Short answer: there is No webcam option in A-HD.

Okey doke, thanks...

Now that I have a final answer, it's off to figure out how to make the Dazzle work while not taking up space on my desk

Thanks again!

Well, I finally got an email reply from Aiptek, which simply stated:

"It cannot be used as a webcam."

...and that was it.

So I guess if people are searching for answers to that question, they'll find this post and be saved the time.

I know of one way you could do it, if you use a video capture card and the AV Out you might be able to do it.

Yes, but not in Europe, becouse Aiptek cameras don't have AV-input in EU models.
