Question about Webcams

2 Answers

I have a Mikomi DC-7130 Webcam with Mic but cannot get any sound when I play back recordings. after re-loading the software twice I now find I cannot play the recorded video back with sound. I am now being told that Windows Media Player does not recognise part of the software needed to play back in it's entirely. It sounds like the microphone part of the device is not being recognized.Please help, I was so pleased to finally get a web-cam and feel so let down and disappointed with this product.Hopefully it's a simple something I am not doing.

Click the 'Devices' menu and you should see a tick next to the Webcam name (USB 2.0 UVC Camera).

Underneath this should be the same name (USB 2.0 UVC Camera), select it and a tick will appear next to it.

This means that you are using the webcam as the mic for your video/webcam (instead of a seperate microphone).


Now click on the 'Capture' menu and the option 'Capture audio' will be available (previously it was greyed out)

Tick this/select it and your webcam will pick up the audio.

I hope this helps.

Also, if anyone finds the image a bit blurry, it can be sharpened bv rotating the webam lens.

I have just bought this product and had the same problem. I went into the control panel (from the Start menu) and opened "Sounds and audio devices". Under the "Voice" tab I clicked on "Test hardware..." and allowed the wizard to check the settings. I had to adjust the volume settings as I was getting too much feedback, but once adjusted, hey presto, the webcam seems to be capturing sound and video fine. Hope this works for you too.

You may just need to manually select your mic. Go to this free video mail site. Click on the mic icon and then try the choices in the drop down list. Record and play back brief recordings until you can hear yourself. Once you know the mic that works select it in Skype or other software program. It is usually under Settings, Audio.

I have a new webcam - mikomi DC - 7130 & its installed on my laptop but will not show up on my msn, can anyone PLEASE help?


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.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN 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.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

Mikomi DC-7130 webcam worked on windows xp but wont work on windows 7, cant find any updated drivers


You could try using a Vista driver, most of the time they'll work in Win 7.

Let us know if that works.
