Re: logitech - skype will not conect.
First download Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/
After you install Skype and have it operational with your
ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to
"Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and
Speaker's are correctly chosen.Then
"make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to
record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to
insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and
test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up
you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional
information to setup video.
Hope this helps. Bud

Make sure you can see yourself in the Webcam software window
Close the webcam software window
Make sure your webcam is selected in Skype settings so that Skype can use it:
Sign in to your Skype, click Tools>Options>General>Video Settings
Check (click to have "tick" in the box) both "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call
Under Select Webcam (Default video device) choose Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX
In Audio Settings choose Logitech Mic to be your default microphone (you have it built in your camera)
Check to mark the box "Let Skype adjust my audio settings"
It should work now.
If you experience issues like signing in to your Skype is taking too long, Can't sign in, or you can't see or hear the other person, then you should contact your internet provider for slow connection. Also, you can check your connection using Speed Test online (www.speedtest.net).
You both need to download Skype and configure your webcams to that program
Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Working OK ?
CONFIGURE TO SKYPE Connect webcam Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Start Skype. On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'. In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings' Run down the list setting your defaults Select your webcam as the default microphone. Make a free test call Click 'Save' In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings. This will launch your webcam Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings' Check the correct webcam is shown as default Click Save Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

When he tries to install his webcam he will be notified if its not compatible - this usually means updating to the latest software
You are correct.
For Logitech to work with Skype you need to install the Logitech driver for your model WEBcab. Then you need to configure Skype to use the Logitech WEBcam and microphone.
To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then configure Skype. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub, connect it directly to the computer's USB port.
Try to check if this issue occurs on Skype only or with all programs
If it is for Skype only: You need to check the Video Settings in Skype. Start Skype > Options > Video Settings > select the webcam that you are using. If the webcam is not on the list, download and install the driver from the manufacturer website
Try to set Automatically Receive Video from - select Anyone or Only people in my contact list.
Yes, I have a Logitech WEBcam (not the same model) and I use Skype.
After you installed Skype then :- To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub.

Have you checked the recording settings in Windows and in Skype? Try changing the default recording device to specifically indicate the device that has your headset plugged. I think the webcam also has a mic and that should not be selected.
Other thing to check is if there is some kind of resource conflict between your USB controller and audio card (use Device Manager).
I believe you are trying to use this cam on skype.Skype has a setup for your cam/mic.follow the prompts.and set-up. if still not working uninstall cam drivers and redownload new from the net @ logitech.com.RICHARDM69
