I haven't been happy with webcams on windows 10. I have an old Logitech that works OK, with a logitech application that allows me to set zoom, pan, tilt, brightness, etc., and then launch whatever conferencing app I need to.
OK, now I try to upgrade to an HD cam. Purchased a C922x from logitech. There are no logitech drivers. They expect me to run some silly game software to be able to effectively use this camera. If I don't, I get a message about using windows generic drivers, and not being able to access full res.
Gave up, and decided to buy a Microsoft Lifecam Studio. Silly me. No way to control zoom in Windows 10. I try to download and install the lifecam software, and Windows 10 gives me a "Lifecam can't run in Windows" security warning!!!
Searching around, it looked like YouCam7 was my option, but I'm getting antivirus quarantines.
So, my demands aren't great. I want to be able to use my Lifecam Studio with webconference applications (in particular, Zoom), and be able to zoom my camera, just like I could two Windows OS's ago. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
This isn't a request for software, but for any way to solve my problem-- be it an override to allow installation of the Lifecam software in Windows 10, some control panel option that can give me zoom functionality, better drivers, hiring an undergrad to physically move the camera in and out ....
I guess to summarize, my request is a solution to "how do I implement a webcam with full functionality in Windows 10?"
