- Once activated, hold the marker straight and facing your webcam approximately one foot to 30cm away from your computer screen.
- You can move the marker as needed to adjust for size and view angle.
- Make sure your webcam is turned on by looking for an indicator light.
- Do not cover any part of the marker with your hands.
- View the experience from a well-lit area. If the playback is not continuous, you likely need more light.
- Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.
