Hey guys, I recently put Windows 8 64-bit on my Pavilion dm1z. I'm going to start recording and posting videos for my store events but the default software from HP won't install correctly (for some reason it won't see that I have Windows Media Player, a requirement for it to install).

Does anyone have suggestions for better webcam software (this is for the default, installed camera on the Pavilion dm1z netbook)? Thank you much in advance.

I don't know this for a fact but I think it has something to do with Win 8 excluding DVD support in Media Player.

And I wish I could be better help, but since I don't use the webcam, I don't know how to correct the problem. I did find THIS thread on HP's website.

Hope this helps.

You could always get software that takes any video input device. It doesn't necessarily have to be a "webcam" program. For instance, XStream or whatever, can record from a webcam and save it locally right than streaming it somewhere.
