    Asus Webcam Driver


    On my Asus-Notebook Windows has installed the usbvideo.sys driver for my webcam With this driver the picture is upside down in the camera app and also in Skype. The I installed the Windows 7 Driver USB 2.0 1.3 M UVC and in Skype the picture is right, but the camera app starts with an error and saying that the camera is in use. I tried with google to find some answers but I didn't find any usefull.

    Perhaps here is someone who knows this problem.

    This has been an ongoing problem with ASUS notebooks. For convenience, ASUS installed their camera upside down in the lid of their notebook and customized the Windows 7 driver to flip the image. ASUS never upgraded their drivers to support Windows 8 and I don't expect they will for Windows 10 either. Microsoft builds a universal driver usbvideo.sys that works fine for the camera but does not have a provision to flip the image.

    What remains needed is a registry option to flip the image for the Microsoft driver. Otherwise, our ASUS notebooks will be locked to Windows 7 forever.

    Hi,

    thanks for the answer. Yes, I was thinking about to open my notebook and see if I can change the camera position. But I found a better solution. It took me several hours, but today I found a driver that worked! It has the same VID-ID as the integrated Chicony cam. It is a Sonix driver 6.0.1223.1 for a FJ Webcam. I must installed it via the inf-file because the setup-file told my hardware not detected. With this driver the camera app worked! It was upside down too, but there was a flip setting in the registry. After this I installed Skype again and it worked to.

    Thanks for solving this problem. I downloaded the driver from Fujitsu and will give Win10 a try on the ASUS.

    Can you tell me how you installed it via the inf-file? I cannot seem to find any such file in the extraction.

    solution


    I searched a long time for a chicony driver that makes my webcam (USB 2.0 VGA UVC, Chicony) work on windows 10. I couldn't find a functioning one, the installation always failed to start. I also never found the .inf file stated in the previous posts.

    I wanted to share my solution on ASUS U36SD:

    1.) Go in the device manager
    2.) Go on top menu "action" and then on "add Legacy hardware"
    3.) Go "next" and then on "select hardware manually..."
    4.) Choose "Imaging devices"
    5.) Just ignore the list and click "next" (in my case it was the Kyocera , 260ci... driver)
    6.) Be happy and have a working and rightly turned camera

    Maybe you need to uninstall your current driver beforehand. My system is in German, so the names can be slightly different than stated above.

    Same problem as Manfred. Have started downloading drivers to try and fix the camera upside down situation but I am prompted to pay for it and a whole suite of others. Is there any free ones I can download to fix my webcam problem? I am not super techy. Thanks in advance.
