@Ajperol2631 Here're a list of steps that you can go through to make changes to the videos settings on your camera:


The webcam video quality can be adjusted using the settings within the YouCam program. If YouCam software is not installed, please refer to the Installing the YouCam Application section of the Testing a Webcam Using YouCam support document for information on how to obtain it.

Follow the steps below to adjust your webcam settings.

  1. To launch YouCam, click Start, type YouCam into the search field, and then select YouCam from the list.

    On starting the YouCam program, the webcam feed should be immediately visible in the main viewing window on the PC.

  2. Click the Configure icon  on the main control bar.

  3. Under Video, select the desired capture quality setting: Good, Better, or Best. This setting does not affect the size of the displayed image.

  4. Under Video, select the desired Video size setting. Select 640 x 480 for the largest video feed window. The larger the video, the more grainy the video is likely to be. A smaller video feed will probably have better quality, but may be too small to show all of the detail that you wish to capture. Find the video size setting that is best for your needs.

  5. In very bright or very dim lighting conditions, select the Display tab.

    • The Brightness control slider changes the overall brightness or dimness of the image.

    • The Contrast control slider changes the difference between the brightest and dimmest areas of the image.

  6. If you need more control over the settings, click the Advanced Settings on the Display tab. In the Capture Filter Properties window, adjust the slider bars for the following effects:

    • Brightness - compensate for the amount of lighting on the overall image

    • Contrast - compensate for difference between brightest and dimmest areas

    • Hue - adjust the color tint of image ranging through red - yellow - blue spectrums

    • Saturation - adjust the amount of color in the image

    • Sharpness - adjust the clarity of image

    • Backlight - compensate for differences for bright lighting behind the image

    • Default - restore the controls to the original values

    Adjust these advanced controls until the video feed looks best for your needs.

The webcam should now be properly configured for your current video needs. If you change environments for your next video, you may need to change these settings.



(By the end of this article all the issues should be resolved)
