WebCam for Samsung Smart TV

by TechTruthSeeker / November 20, 2013 9:29 PM PST

HI Guys,

I have samsung smart tv (40F5500). I wanted to know if I can use any other webcam other than VG-STC2000 and VG-STC3000.

Camera cost me around 100$ (Indian price 6000) which is really costly.

There are few logitec and HP(KQ246AA) skype camera available which are lot cheaper (20$), however before buying it I want to make sure it will work with the TV.

I just want to use webcam to video chat though skype.

If the shop says it should work, and/or they are willing to let you return it if it doesn't, it's riskless to try.
If they don't know and they are not willing to let you return it, I would go and search another shop.
If they say no, I wouldn't buy it.

Only the camera from Samsung that Samsung tells you to use is compatible. There is no Windows PC in said TV so no way to load drivers and apps like a PC.

Are you finding folk expecting to use a TV like a PC (without the PC?)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
