A webcam is a small camera that is either inbuilt on the top of the monitor or connected to the top of your computer desktop or laptop. It feeds or streams captured still pictures and moving videos on the internet in real-time from your computer with the help of webcam software. Webcams enable users to record and stream video on the internet. It is also used in video chat sessions or video conferences with two or more users. Let’s learn the steps for installing and setting up the webcam.
Steps for how to install and Set-up the webcam.
- Attach the webcam to your computer.
- Plug the webcam’s USB cable into one of the working USB port of the computer or laptop. And attach the webcam with a clip on your monitor.
- Mac users would need a USB to USB-C adapter for a normal webcam.
- Be sure about plugging the webcam directly into your computer and not in a USB hub.
- Install the webcam software.
- Your webcam may have come with a required software CD to run the program. You can run or play the CD to begin the program installation process.

- You can go to the website of the webcam
- Go to their support page or search for the software or driver of your webcam model.
