WebCam indicator light on XPS M1330

  • Does anybody know how I can disable the blue webcam light that activates when the webcam is activated? I have checked under webcam options and have not been able to find an option to disable it.
  • Want to secretly record someone? :) ..  I think that there is no option for the light to be switched off while recording.. there might be a registry edit you can do, but I am not sure... you can always use a piece of tape ;)
  • If you are using the Webcam Program, that has the option for recording when you are not at yourcomputer, I think it is the motion detection mode or something like that, that is the only mode that gives you the option to shut the light off.
