ASUS Computers and Articulate Replay
If you are using an ASUS computer/laptop and can't get Replay to work, there is a solution.
What I Learned Today
I learned something new today regading my ASUS laptop's webcam. I don't use it very much because I tend to use the webcam (and apps) on my MacBook Pro instead.
But now, with Replay downloaded and open, I had a good reason to use my ASUS's webcam.
When I began to follow Mike on the Replay getting-started tutorials, I couldn't get my webcam to turn on and appear. No little green light no matter how hard I tried.
ASUS Virtual Camera
ASUS has a program I didn't know about called Virtual Camera. And, that's the setting I needed to select (see image; didn't include me in the screen shot because I'm too casual today) and not any setting that has the words "Webcam" in the option.
A few WWW articles got me started but took me down a different path. However, I'll include the links here in case other ASUS owners might find them somewhat helpful. At least I discovered how to work my ASUS webcam with Replay.
My DH, and business partner, also did some research. Apparently, there are lots of ASUS folks who are complaining about their machine's webcam, Virtual Camera, etc.
Hope the above might help other ASUS owners. All I did was the following:
- Open Windows Live Movie Maker and turned on the ASUS webcam in that app.
- Then I went back to Articulate Replay and clicked Record.
- In Replay, make sure the webcam is on in the control panel below the recording area (use slider to turn it on).
- When the Web Cam Settings window in Replay appears, under the Select Webcam drop-down list, choose ASUS Virtual Camera.
Looking forward to playing with Replay!
