Downloaded. Works great as a webcam replacement. No hassle installation even on Windows 7 x64.

The title states this can be used as an HD Webcam... I tried the standard HD resolution (From Wikipedia: 720p is the shorthand name for a category of HDTV video modes having a resolution of 1280720) but with this resolution the app FC's which it states it does if not setup correctly. The highest resolution I can goto is 480x480, going any higher on either height or width causes distortion in the picture. Anyone have any other suggestions for getting this to be HD?

At least you can get it to work. I used the recommended settings, it still wants me to force close; even in 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7, it only shows the DroidCam logo in the Skype video area.
