Question about Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision Webcam

1 Answer

I can't get my logitech webcam to work when having a conversation in skype. it has worked before, but now I am on a different network/house. I can see the video when I check my skype settings (set to automatically start video with chat), but it doesn't activate when a call begins.

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

I am not a computer person.I was wondering if logitech webcam C250h will work with skype?


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.

My logitech webcam wont work with skype. it works


You can try to configure it.
But first I would recommend you to download the latest version of skype.
Link is :(www.skype.com/download/)
While configuring be sure to use the following setting:
1.Start skype.
2.In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
3.Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings
4.Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Camera is not working when on Skype but sound is?


There maybe a patch available with a later driver
Go to Device Manager, Expand 'Imaging' folder and right click on your webcam text. 'Update driver' and use internet option.

Check your webcam is set to default in Skype
  • Start Skype.
  • On the Tools menu, click Options.
  • In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  • Select your logitech device as the default microphone. For example, select Logitech + model#.( if it has mic )
  • In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  • Select your Logitech device as the default Webcam. For example, select Logitech + model #
  • Click Save.

  • Failing that check if you have the latest version of Skype

    I have Microsoft lifecam (which works) and Skype as well. But Skype doesn't detect my webcam. I have the 4.0 version.


    try and Upgrade your drivers :) If not try plugging it into different Usb Slots or what not and waiting a few moments, this should refresh the computers processes and maybe Find the webcam easier
