I have just purchased a HDR-CX290. Is it possible to use it as a webcam for Skype?

Can I use my HDR-CX290 as my Skype camera? If yes what must I do to get Win7 and Skype to recognize it?

The camcorder can be used as a webcam. You have to check if the camcorder can be connected to your computer via an A/V IN connection. Afterwards, you also have to disable the camera's Power Save feature so that the camera will not shut down on its own during inactivity.

 

Once connected, please check with your Webcam application for instructions on how to get the camcorder to be recognized.
