By partnering with Cyberlink, HP has released Media Smart Webcam, which closely resembles You Cam but is completely free to use on HP laptops, desktops, and touch screen PCs.
To get Media Smart, you can wait for HP Update (which should be installed on your computer unless you manually removed it) to deliver it to you.
Or, you can Google your computer model, proceed to the HP page for the model, select your OS (you should preferably be running Vista or 7), and choose Media Smart Webcam from the list of downloads available.
Here’s the required page for my laptop model running 32-bit Windows 7 – dv5-1006ax.
However it’s not free and ever since version 3 of You Cam was released, all v2 users have been getting nag screens to upgrade.
Running the downloaded file will automatically remove You Cam and install Media Smart on your laptop, which can then be accessed from the Start menu. If you’re planning to purchase an HP Pavilion laptop in near future, here’s my advice – DON’T.Media Smart will run only on HP hardware, though owners of other models can try and get gobsmacked in the face. Chatrandom is a free Chatroulette alternative that connects people using their webcam.This random chat has taken off and become one of the top sites like Chatroulette in the last few years.
The reason behind Chatrandom's success is simple, they provide an easy to use platform for people from all around the world to be able to easily connect with each other.The site has made the world a smaller place and users have enjoyed the services because they have the ability to meet people from different cultures instantly.
