Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

My microphone is not working when I try to Skype but the camera does work


Good day,

This sometimes happens if skype is using the wrong mic line.
To set the correct line:
1. In skype go to Tools in the top menu bar and then select options.
2. Select audio settings on the left hand menu.
3. Click on the drop down box next to microphone.
4. Select each setting until you see the green bar respond when you talk into the mic.
5. Click save.

This will solve your problem. Make sure that the mic is plugged into the red audio jack!

Regards

If you are able to hear audio with a music CD or any other application, then you must un-install the software for the camera, reboot and then reinstall.

If you are unable to hear any sound, then your audio driver may have been knocked out by the camera installation. To reinstall, go to manufacturer of computer's website, click on support, enter model number and choose operating system. The page that follows will allow you to download, free, the audio driver. Restart the computer and see if this helps.

My picture turns to "Green Screen" while video calling on Skype..


sometimes i get similar effects when i use skype or MSN my view goes yellow i think it is due to the age of the model of the webcam, so i recommend getting a better one. If the problem persists then maybe the graphics arent that good with the webcam or the software is dodgy. hope i helped!
