What is Dell Webcam Center?

The Webcam Center provides basic software and functions to interact with the OEM included Dell webcam.


Dell Webcam Center is a software program developed by Dell. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named livecamde.exe. The setup package generally installs about 25 files and is usually about 13.64 MB (14,300,974 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows Vista (SP2) and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 64% of users of Dell Webcam Center come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
