I have the Logitech Brio webcam.

How do we do a web conference face to face with someone. Not video recording - just a conference.

Is it a fact that we still need an application such as Skype to do the actual conferencing?

Hello,

YouCam is not the software for this, as it is just for video chatting mostly.

What you should do is download the free U software from CyberLink. It let's you do face to face conferencing and video meetings on PC, mobile devicesm and more.

You can download it free here: https://u.cyberlink.com/download

I believe Youcam 7 is what I do need to do basic personal conferences with family and friends. U seems to be for businesses.

Hello,

It is like any instant messaging service...and can be used by a business, or a group of friends.

U is free and designed for what you need, YouCam 7 isn't. You can't do face to face conferencing using it.

I suggest you just try downloading U Messenger...as I said it is the answer you are looking for and is FREE!

Hello,

15 - 20 yerss go, I set my folks up on video conferencing - basiclly so they could video conferenc with us. They lived in Minnesota and we lived in alifornia. We used land lines - which were very slow and unreliable. Then we had no social media websites to deal with so the application was pretty simp;le.

Now, the conferencing takes into account the social media web sites which makes things more complicated. We no longer just connect for face to face interaction, but can share all media.

They came up with the software which can handle all meida, like Youcam 7, Manycam, etc..Now to do both it takes a camera, connecting software like U or Skype and for the other activities Youcam 7, Manycam etc . .

Getting back into it again started out to be a little confusing - which application to use for what.

So you are correct, Youcam 7 is for the social media experience (uploading/downloading files, and video recording etc. . )and U is for the face to face interaction. So it is still a bit confusing how to improve your chat, then moving into the conferencing application.

U is supposed to interface with Outlook Contacts but so far it does not. Not sure how to set up a contact in U.

It now is possible to change the background behind you while doing the face to face chat (like a green room). I am not seeing where Cyberlink handles something like this in their applications. I believe Chromacam handles this - not sure how the others handle it.

Thanks for the input it helps.

Hello,

At the moment, you need to have a CyberLink account to use U. You have one to use this forum, so you will need to sign your parents up for one. It is free and can be done using their email address.

Here are a group of tutorials if you need more info: https://u.cyberlink.com/support/video-tutorials/umessenger

Here is the FAQ in case you have any more questions. Or you can just ask here and I will figure it out:

Hello,

Using my parents as an example was only to show how things have changed. They have been gone for some time, and I am retired.

I do have a Cyberlink account. I have been in computers all my life. 25 years in California as a CIO (Chief Information Officer) in charge of information systems for the University and colleges, and consulted with Pac Bell on some large technology projects. I installed technologhy systems in Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon and California. Now I have an information systems lab in my home where I do video conversions and multiplex video and audio for movie productions. I also built my own power computers (all solid state).

Just thought I would mention the background so you didn't think I was a novice in this stuff.

As far as messenger is concerned, I cannot get a contact to be added to the contacts list or use a contack in any way.

Messenger will not recognize my Logitech Brio camera

Would like to know how to use messenger in conjuction with Youcam7 so I can take advantage of the additional options like changing a background in the video chat.

Maybe mesenger and Youcam7 is not the right combination to use. I have most of the Cyberlink software and thought this would be as solid as the rest.

Also, I need to learn more about the video chat function vs the video that adds features for social media

Don't know if that helps - there is not much advice out there yet on this video stuff.

I am also setting up 360 video using Cyberlinks Powerdirector 16. I have a 360 movie camera and am planning on doing some video 360 and Virtual reality.

Alan - have to keep the mind working
