Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

Most camcorders are not supported for use as a webcam because after a few minutes of inactivity without recording the power will shut down to conserve the battery

 

Thank you

Yes, that may be true. Although, for that very reason, when we use a video camcorder for our three hour meetings, we use the bypass using the battery power and charge the camcorder directly through an electrical outlet. For some reason, I unable to get the HPv5061u to do the same. It powers up for just a moment, and you can see through the viewer, then it shuts down.
