    Hello,

    Is it possible to connect and use the 7.0's webcam(s) with a PC for Skype and other webcam programs similar to Skype?

    I can use the USB cable to plug the 7.0 into my PC and my PC recognizes it. But I can't find the cam images anywhere on my PC. And even if I could find the cam output, would it be visible to the person on the other end of Skype?

    The cam on my PC died so I'm looking to use the 7.0 cam(s) as a substitute until I buy another cam for the PC.

    Thanks

    I'm nearly certain that can't be done.

    Just use the Tab 7 for the video call? I use it all the time and it works well.
