Terrible webcam quality

Postby peterno3 on Mon Oct 19, 2009 8:15 am

I have a VX-1000 USB webcam which I am trying to get working on my computer. I managed to get it working, but the quality of the video is terrible. Everything is completely blurred and pixely. Is there something I can do in order to fix this problem? Thanks

Well, the very first - and a very important step - is using Google.

I had already tried all of those, but they didn't work.

I did figure out what the problem was though, I'm really stupid. Turning the lens on my camera focuses it, but I had no clue that you could even focus it. I must have accidentally turned it at some point. Thanks for the response though
