Re: How to turn LED lights off

Hello Keiyul,


No there is no way to turn off the LED's, the one by the webcam just basically lets you know that it is on and working properly, if it wasn't there then on some sites or some messanger programs people can view your webcam without getting your permission. If that light wasn't there they could access your webcam whenever they wanted and you would not know .. it also gives off light so the webcam can see you when its in a dark room.
