I have to quickly grab PS3 as a web cam for my pc for online lessons during this temporary covid-19 outbreak. I installed the driver, and ps3 cam works through its own window. But when i used Zoom Meeting, the video in the ps3 window was not transferred to Zoom screen.

I will need to use this cam for skype too. I haven't used it with skype, so not sure if it will work. I assume that it would be the same issue as Zoom

What is "it's own window"?

Any software which uses a webcam, will need to recognize the webcam connected to the PC. If it does, you should be able to select it in the configuration options.

I connected PS3 eye camera to my desktop (windows 10). It works fine with every program and app, except Skype.

Skype says "video device not found," so I clicked the help from Skype link to solve audio/video problems. I did follow the instructions and check if Skype app was turned on for CAMERA. And yes, it's on.

So.... no sure where else I can check.

Thanks for help
