Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera
I have a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX and the video works just fine in Yahoo Messenger, AIM, Skype, but for the life of me I can not get my microphone to work. Is it the camera or is it the settings that I need to adjust? If it is the settings, how do I make the camera like my default setting? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Each one of those applications has their own settings for audio. However to make it easier, you can set your webcam as the "default" input device for audio.
To do this, click on the "Start" button then goto "Control Panel"
Once in "Control Panel" click on "Sounds and Audio Devices" Then click the "Audio" tab at the top of the new box.
Under "Sound Recording/Default Device" click the drop down menu and choose your webcam from the list.
These steps may differ slightly depending on the version of Windows you are using. But this will set your webcam as the default microphone for all applications.

Why isn't the microphone on my camera working?
Answer The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
