Using SplitCam for Google Hangouts?

Post by rbowen » Tue May 02, 2017 8:02 pm

Hi!

I'm a 72-year old who is new to all of this, and not very technical to boot. :)

So before I get started, I'd like to ask:

1) Can SplitCam be used to create a Google Hangout, and if so, is it relatively easy or hard .. for someone like me? :)

2) Is there a (video) tutorial to take me step-by-step?

3) If you think it might be a bit much for me - and I suspect it might be - can you recommend something a little easier, less 'technical', that I might try instead of SplitCam?

Thanks.

Hi,

thank you for interest to our software

>1) Can SplitCam be used to create a Google Hangout, and if so, is it relatively easy or hard .. for someone like me? :)

Yes, you can. It is easy

>2) Is there a (video) tutorial to take me step-by-step?

Yes, we have it, use this tutorial:

http://splitcamera.com/helpims/googleplus.html

But before start don't forget to set the Google plugin for Hangouts, for details see the Google doc


>3) If you think it might be a bit much for me - and I suspect it might be - can you recommend something a little easier, less 'technical', that I might try instead of SplitCam?

I don't think that usage of Splitcam will too difficult for you.

Vicul -

Thanks. But I'm confused. You just replied that you don't think I need the Google Hangout plug-in for Chrome. But It was you who suggested I be sure to get it to begin with, in your post to me on May 3, 3:30 AM:

"Yes, we have it, use this tutorial:

http://splitcamera.com/helpims/googleplus.html

But before start don't forget to set the Google plugin for Hangouts, for details see the Google doc"

So ... do I or don't I need it? :)

Sorry, I was mistaken - the plugin is used for Firefox.
Splitcam doesn't use it at all. This plugin is a part of Hangouts, Google software.

Thanks.

1) So, while I wouldn't need the plug-in for SplitCam, I *would* need it for Hangouts, so I should download it, right?

2) As to the tutorial: With all due respect, it doesn't seem like much of one. :) I mean, all it seems to do is tell me how to initialize things so I can use SplitCam with Google Plus ... to get it so SplitCam is "interfacing" with Google Plus. Or ,as it says in the heading of the Tutorial: "How to Coinnect Google Plus to SplitCam".

OK. So I get G+ & SplitCam connected. Great. Then what?!

I mean, once they're connected, how do I get my pre-recorded video broadcast on a Hangout? Is there another - more comprehensive - tutorial for that, one that would take me through that process step-by-step?

Thanks,
Richard?

Dear Richard,

I've offered you all info how to connect Splitcam to Hangouts.
If it is shortly - in the Hangouts, its Settings, you should add our Splitcam driver (Splitcam Video Driver) replacing your webcam. In Splitcam you select any video source (webcam, movie, picture, desktop , which you wish to send to Hangouts.
This is everthing!

If you have a trouble how to work with Hangouts, please contact Google, they have many tutorials for that.
