See section C. Windows Live Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.

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

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I set up creative cam for singsnap..karokee site..its like its running too many cams.and won't let me use the wizard to set up the sing site..even..its very frustrating..but when I plug in my old...


SingSnap Voice and video Setup
SingSnap is a free site boasting an extensive song list with a wide range of styles and time periods available.
(There's plenty of Def Leppard!) Don't be fooled by what's available to view - the site lets you use three kinds of
web cams. It seems few folks use them though, but who knows why. There's a configuration wizard process for audio,
video, and Internet settings, making it a real, well, snap to set up. The site lets you tweak your video look, and
turn on or off ratings, comments, duets, and embeds. There's a pay option of $7 a month that removes advertising and
gives you an expanded song selection.

Copy this web site and paste it in your browser and HIT ENTER:

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/singandrecord/intro

CLICK on this: Run the SingSnap setup wizard...

Then you will find the SINGSNSP WIZARD, follow the instructions and it should work with both Video & Audio.
At the bottom of the WIZARD click on PROCEED.

Hope this helps. Bud

HERE IS THE FAQ SECTION WHICH MAY ALSO BE OF HELP TO YOU>

Copy this site to your web browser address bar

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/help/faq

for additional Frequeuently Asked Questions (FAQ) I inserted a few below to help you.

#1 Can I improve the video quality on my recordings?

Make sure you have nice, bright lighting for recording video. Also, you can try running the Setup Wizard again.


#2 Can you help me find "Stereo Mix" / "What U Hear" on my sound card?

Sure, click "Start" -> "Control Panel" -> "Sounds and Audio Devices" -> "Audio" -> Click the "Volume" button under "Sound recording" -> "Options" -> "Properties" -> make sure everything is checked -> click "OK".

You should now see the "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" line if it's supported by your sound card.


#3 Can I use a USB microphone to record?

Yes, you can. When you record with SingSnap you have the option to "Enable Music" in the preview step of the recording process. When "Enable Music" is checked the voice track from your USB microphone will be mixed in with the music track.


#4 How should my sound card be configured when "Enable Music" is checked?

When "Enable Music" is checked it means the voice track from your computer will be mixed in with the music track from our server. For this reason your sound card settings should be set to record "Mic" and not "What U Hear" or "Stereo Mix" so that only your voice is recorded.

Here's a step by step guide on how to do this in Windows XP:

- Click "Start", (possibly "Settings") and "Control Panel"
- Double Click "Sound And Audio Devices"
- Click the "Audio" tab at the top
- Under "Sound Recording", click the "Volume" button (about half way down)

This brings up a new box, likely titled "Record Control" with some sliders on it. You need to look for "Mic", "Microphone" or "Input". If you don't see this, look for something that is similar or means the same thing. If you still don't see anything:

- Click "Options" (in the menu at the top of this window)
- Click "Properties"
- In the white box, check "Microphone" or anything similar
- Click OK

Now try to select the microphone (or whatever it is called on your machine).

If you are using a Webcam or USB microphone or mixer, you don't need to do any of this. Just run the wizard and select your webcam or USB mic from there.

Hope this is of some help to you. Bud

Lifecam vx-3000 WITH SKYPE


hello,

Kindly try to reconfigure your webcam to SKYPE application. To set up your webcam for Skype, please follow these steps:

1. Download and install the most recent drivers for your video device (you can get these from the webcam device’s manufacturer’s site). In many cases this is not necessary if it is a USB device. Note if you have driver on your webcam you can reinstall or install it. Make sure that the driver can support the current Operating system you installed in your system.

2. Select your video device in Skype by clicking the following from the Main Skype Control window:
Tools -> Options -> General (tab) -> Video Settings (tab)--if video

Tools
-> Options -> General (tab) -> Audio Settings (tab)
-- if audio

3. If your webcam is functioning you will see yourself displayed. If you are not seeing yourself be sure you have Enable Skype Video checked/Audio Cheked. If you are still having difficulty click Webcam Settings.
Please note: FireWire devices are not supported at this time.


4. Make sure the option Enable Skype Video/Audio is checked. Also you can set video privacy settings to the desired options in the same window.

5.The recommended System Requirements for Skype video calls are a 1Ghz CPU, 512MB RAM, a video card with at least 16MB of memory (also the latest version of DirectX installed) and a 512/256kbit (down/up) connection. Video and call quality may vary greatly in environments with conditions below those recommendations.

6.
Please be sure, that your webcam is connected and not in use by another program.

Thanks

A couple of problems....we're both using windows live messenger...they can see me, we can both hear each other but i can't see them?...or we can both see each other but neither can hear each other? Where...


he audio works but the quality is poor.
trnsp.gif Answer Try disabling the Quality of Service (QoS) Packet scheduler in your Network Connection properties. QoS reserves 20% of your bandwidth and disabling this setting may improve audio quality.
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet Connection, and then click Network Connections.
  3. Right-click the network or Internet connection that is currently enabled, and then click Properties.
  4. Clear the QoS Packet Scheduler check box.

Video sound problem


Durring video conferencing with MSN Messenger, I can't hear my friend and he can't hear me. Or I can hear them but they can't hear me. What's wrong? trnsp.gif Answer This article applies to the following products:
All Logitech Web Cameras with MSN Messenger Support
This article applies to the following software:
Windows XP
Test the Microphone in Sound Recorder

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
If the microphone does not work in Sound Recorder, click here for help in determining the problem with the mic.
While using MSN Messenger it is the messenger program, not the camera software, that negotiates the audio streams between two MSN Messenger Clients. Although we cannot directly support audio issues in MSN Messenger, the following steps have been known to resolve and improve audio issues in MSN Messenger. For further information, please consult the help documents associated with MSN Messenger.
Test Your Networking Router
You can also test to see if your router is causing audio issues by either physically bypassing your router and connecting directly to your cable/DSL modem or by setting up your computer as the DMZ (de-militarized zone). If you are a novice networking user, it is not recommended that you leave your computer in the DMZ state for extended period as that may leave your computer vulnerable to attack. However, you may briefly configure your computer as the DMZ to determine if your network settings are causing the audio issues. For DMZ setup instructions, please consult your router's documentation.
Enable Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) on both Windows XP and Your Router.
If either of the above steps resolves the no audio problem, try the following steps.
  1. Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. To open Add or Remove Programs, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
  3. In the Components list, select the Networking Services check box, and then click Details.
  4. Make sure the Universal Plug and Play box is checked.
Notes: If you used a CD to set up Windows, you will be prompted to insert it into your computer.
If your router does not support UPnP or you still get no audio after enabling UPnP on both Windows XP and your router, you must manually open all UDP ports between 5004 and 65535. This is because the audio streams are sent dynamically using that range of ports. Without a dynamic way to open those ports like UPnP, there is no way for MSN Messenger to successfully negotiate the audio stream. Consult your router's documentation for instructions to manually open these required ports.
If you are still experiencing audio issues within MSN Messenger, and you have verified that the microphone is working in Sound Recorder, contact MSN Messenger Support.


This article covers Accoustic Echo Canncellation (AEC) and how it works.
trnsp.gif Answer This article applies to the following products:
QuickCam 10.x and RightSound supported cameras
QuickCam 11.x and RightSound supported cameras
Call Central and RightSound support audio devices
This article applies to the following platforms:
Windows® 2000 Professional
Windows® XP Professional
Windows® XP Home
Windows® Media Center Home
Windows® Vista
Accoustic EchoCancellation (AEC)'s purpose is to prevent sounds from your computer's speakers to be picked up by your microphone. This can be a significant problem with audio or video calling applications where the voices or sounds from other parties of the call is being inadvertently picked up by the microphone and fed back into the call, creating echo and other sound distortions. Without AEC, this echo can detract from the quality of a call and in extreme situations, the echo can degrade the audio experience to the point where the audio is useless.
To prevent this from happening, the AEC component monitors sounds being played by your computer's speakers while monitoring the incoming sound picked up by your computer's microphone. The AEC module takes the outgoing and incoming sound signals and compares them to determine if echo is present. If echo is found, it is subtracted before the audio from the microphone is sent to the requesting application. This will result in the remote party only hearing you speak, without being distracted by hearing their own voice echo back to them.
When enabled, echo is eliminated for the recipient of the audio/video message. For echo free chatting, both parties need to have a RightSound technology enabled web camera that supports the AEC feature.
