hi,
i just bought a new computer and a HP webcam.
the webcam is very slow.........as in, the picture isn't a smooth video....i'm sure you know what i mean.
my new computer has 6 gigs of ram etc. so it's not an outdated comp (yet).

any thoughts?
i know it has something to do with the fps...but 1. i didn't change the default settings...it was like this from the start...and 2. i can't find the option to increase the fps!

thoughts?

here's the webcam: HP KQ245AA Premium Autofocus Webcam - webcams – WebcamSearch.com (http://www.webcamsearch.com/hp-kq245aa-premium-autofocus-webcam/ - broken link)

When are you experiencing poor quality? If its when you're online with someone, it could be your Internet connection's upload speed. Go to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test, test your speed, and post what you get. There's also probably settings in the camera's software that determine the resolution and possibly color depth. The higher either of those are, the more data has to get pushed through the system, and the less smoothly the video will display.
