Hi,
it could be simply the program you are using. Try it in yahoo messenger or msn

It could be that your voice is too strong.(or to bass) Hi noise levels create cut-out voices.
So turn your microphone volume way down, and your program volume UP a little and tweak it.

It could also be the microphone thats built in to the cam. Try plugging in a separate microphone into your computer and see how that performs.

Thank you and good luck.

This sounds like a webcam fps (frames per second) issue. It can be caused by several factors from browser cache, to Internet connection, to power. Try this FPS test site.

Check the microsoft website to see what additional software you need for your model/OS
I run a Logitech and need DirectX 9 in addition to the Logitech software

Fill in the details of your cam/OS and check out the "Readme" links

Click 'Apply' & 'OK'

I bought and installed a quickcam IM plus. Videos choppy.


Sounds like your CPU may be overloaded. A simple way to check is to do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and look at the performance. See if any application is hogging your resources and, if so, you can change some of the settings to be more friendly to your system.

Skype video and chat


What are the specs of the computer you're using? Skype need a pretty good computer and a good bit of memory RAM to operate on a computer really well. Older computers just won't run Skype well.

My webcam has all of the sudden started running slow on msn, it didn't before, so I don't understand why it is now, I've installed 3 different cams and it's doing the same with each one


If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video. Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.
