While we could write about another method what you discover is the camcorder shuts down after a few minutes so after getting it to work you discover that this is yet another dead end.
Fix? Get a web cam.
I've been trying to use my PV-GS320 as a webcam recently but it doesn't work (I'm operating on Windows XP Professional). I've installed the included USB driver, hooked the camera to the computer, put it on the Webcam setting, but when I try to dock in a Stickam chat room, no image shows up. The monitor on my camera has a large red exclamation point in the center of the screen when I try to use it as a webcam.
Can anyone help me out here? What am I doing wrong?
