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.

When finished setup 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

Everything works except the person I call cannot hear me. I am using skype. The echo check on skype works, I have tried two other cameras and I have the same problem. No matter how I change the settings...


The Camera and Audio setups are unrelated in both Windows and Skype. Please check your Windows Audio devices volume settings and specifically the Microphone settings: it appears to be disabled or the volume level set much too low. The windows settings overrides the settings in Skype (or in other words, Skype volume settings are a subset of the Windows volume settings). Check that Skype audio is setup properly after starting Skype: Tools -> Options -> Audio Settings -> select your required devices and volume levels. During this ajustment process, make free calls to Skype 'Echo / Sound Test Services".
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go!

I can't hear the person.


Check your earphone if it is in good condition. Next, if not working, reinstall your audio driver.

Deep, garbled, audio on my contact's end


have you tried recording a message to yourself and playing it back. The reason I ask that is to make sure your audio encoding is working well enough at least for you to understand yourself.
Has the sound always been good on her computer, i.e. any reason to suspect her configuration at all? If not, and assuming she is getting good quality video from you, then the problem may well be in your configuration. Have you tried a different messenging program just to see if that might alliviate the issue. I know from a lot of past experience that different messenging programs can have a major effect on audio especially.
Now my last question, are you both using high speed broadband connections??
