Webcam Audio Getting sound to broadcast with streaming video using a webcam requires a few components to work in unison. Because most webcams do not have a microphone built in, you will need to buy a microphone for your computer or locate your microphone input if you have one built in (some laptops have these). The audio and video are two separate functions and must be diagnosed as such. b> Webcam Software b> If you have a webcam set up correctly and you are streaming video, then you are already halfway there. This details only how to make the sound work, so please refer to an article related to webcam video if you do not have that working already. The webcam audio and video both communicate with your computer via your webcam's software application. Due to this, you will find that there are settings specific to your webcam software for sound. Because there are various software applications that can act as an interface for your webcam, you will want to do a product-specific search on the Internet for your application's settings. Most often you will find the settings for sounds under Tools or Settings, then choosing Options or Preferences. Regardless of the application that you are using to broadcast your webcam video, you will need to ensure that your microphone is plugged into the "Microphone In" jack on your computer or laptop. The microphone input jack is commonly colored pink. b> Microphone Connection b> With your microphone plugged into the "Microphone In" audio jack, test the audio inside your webcam's software application. Most webcam applications allow you test your microphone by reading a sentence and watching a graph move as you speak. If you see this happening, then you have correctly hooked up your microphone. If you have a Windows PC you should also see if your computer recognizes your microphone by clicking on "Start" > "Settings" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the "Audio" tab you will find a section for "Sound Recording." From there you can select or change your "Default Device." b> Hardware Troubleshooting b> In the event that your microphone is not recognized by your computer, continue hardware troubleshooting by contacting your computer's support staff. With a properly connected microphone and some minor adjustments in your webcam's software application, you should be broadcasting audio with your video in no time. Hope this helps.

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

The built-in microphone on Acer Aspire one 6920g doesn't work


Have you checked the webcam software to make sure you have the volume turned up for the microphone?

You could try downloading and reinstalling the webcam driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the webcam drivers.



Try using ManyCam. It comes with drivers and software to drive it.




You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.



You can also visit their site to see how to use it when ever you want to skype or use some other function that requires the webcam.

My friend can hear me but I can't hear them


It's either he doesn't have a working microphone in the webcam, or, if he does, he needs to select the input device in the audio settings of the communication program you are using.

I just have the camera piece shown in the picture. Does that mean I would only be able to see someone and not communicate with them? Is the other piece a microphone?


No, I am really sorry. The Intel Home PC Camera CS331 Webcam are not sold with microphones. You may purchase an additional microphone to use in addition to your webcam; however, unfortunately, this particular product is sold without a microphone.

After installing my webcam, my microphone is not working on my laptop. I tried it on another machine and it worked fine. Is there a setting we are missing?


Yes, it is because GearHead WC330I WebCam has built-in microphone and apparently you also installed it's microphone.

What you can do now is to select which microphone to use and disable the other one.

Got to "Control Panel" Select "Sound" icon. From the "Sound Window" select "Recording" tab and disable one of your microphone which you don not want to use.

Hope this helps you. Thank you for using Fixya.
