Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

It zooms really close to my face

I use my quickcam for chatting on Skype. After one minute, the camera resets and suddenly my face is taking up the whole screen instead of being a normal shoulder-shot. Somehow, my quickcam keeps auto-zooming and i can't figure out how to make it stop. Please help!

Launch the Logitech QuickCam or Webcam software on your computer. Verify that you see yourself Logitech Webcam software window. Close the software window. Sign in to Skype. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Click "Video Settings," check the "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call" boxes. Select your Logitech QuickCam from the drop-down list. Your webcam should display video in the window. Click "Audio Settings" if your QuickCam has a built-in microphone and select it from the microphone drop-down list. Check the "Let Skype adjust my audio settings" box in "Audio Settings" so Skype recognizes your microphone. Click "Save" to save the options for your audio and video settings. Skype will close the options menu.

I'm trying to skype with someone who has Microsoft LifeCam - I have Logitech. We are locking up if we connect at all. Is it the cameras that incompatible? internet connection? or what ?


no, it is the software. the camera is just a device for transmitting the image the cam never really contact each other direct. make sure you are both on the same version of skype. test your cam in the tools>settings>video settings. if you still have issue you may need to contact skype thru email.

Logitec quickcam problems


Seems not a problem of your camera as the image it records of you is transmitted clearly to the folks you call. Maybe those people should get the same camera you use.

Or it their/your internet connection upload/download speed

Or it is skype - i use skype, but some of my friends move to MSN as they say it supports better quality experience of video chats
