    I would say it could be a design difficulty for every webcam. There could be at least 1 second or more delay no matter you send out or test only sound plus video together locally. Unless your webcame can scan extremely fast, then the sound will match with the video together especially during people was talking during a local computer video clip recording without even send out that streaming video or IM over the internet.

It's more than likely a slow connection dependant on each persons speed, and the more people on line the more bandwidth gets taken up, it's like at peak times trying to stuff a sausage down a straw so to speak. Also make sure that there are no other programmes running in the background taking up processor and memory usage, this also slows the connection.

I have a Yamaha rx-v367. The HDMI plays video from my blue Ray but no sound. Tuner, no sound. IPod, no sound. Phone was hooked up in multiple inputs. No sound. I'm stuck here. Please help.


It sounds like the Yam can switch video sources but the audio amplifier section is dead. Although I'm not familiar with this unit, simple logic tells me that unless it's a mulit-channel and/or surround sound" setting, the audio section of your Yamaha has failed. If the Yam has speaker protection mode (5-10 sec. delay when 1st turned on) it's possible that a defective speaker (or speaker wire) could be causing the protection circuit to NOT connect amp-to-speakers. Disconnect one speaker at a time (at rear connection on Yamaha) to see if audio returns.

How can I fix sounds delay on my Motorola HT-820? I just recently bought this items and I found out that there is a sound delay for 5-10 sec. Is this normal?


Some delay might be normal, because your phone requires some time to encode the A2DP stream, and your stereo headsets will also add some more to the total delay time, since it has to decode that stream, but it all depends on the processor's hardware and power, the application being used to play the media file, the codecs used, the headset's quality, etc. So, in general, A2DP might not be the way to go, whenever image synchronization is required, like watching movies, music clips, TV streams, etc. Wired headsets would be a better choice for such cases, instead.
In can tell you that in my current phone,an Acer Tempo M900, if I run WMP to watch a MP4 encoded music clip, with its audio being streamed via A2DP to my SE HBH-IS800 stereo headsets, the sound delay might be considered negligible. I'm pretty sure newer phones would perform even better. But I remember having experienced heavy delays with other environments in the past.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

We cant record a video clip with sound - only picture


You need to go into the recorder options ant tell it the sound source to us is the USB Mic. on the webcam, or what ever the source of the Mic. is. There are several sources in Skype that allow changes to be made. Use the drop down menu for the selection and select the one you are using for the mic. Good Luck, RAC

Using logitech 9000 with google video chat, 5 second sound delay


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.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. 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.

When done 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

Sound delay in our webcams when we try to sing together.


The speed of light and the speed of sound just don't mix well on a webcams. There is a process delay with these cameras. The only remedy I know of is to get a webcam with greater memory capacity. Say, a 3.1meg webcam. The logitech only has 300K of memory and has a slower response time. Recording with a low res window helps too. 160x120 verses 320x240. This helps with less response delay time between cams. Also, using an external mic helps too. You'll need to tweek the distince between the mic and the webcam to sinc the video and sound. Let me know if I can be of further assistence with this. I'll try to help you resolve this.

Webcam video delay


when do you recieve the delay when using a program over the internet or? Cause a webcam will naturally gain a delay when recording or broadcasting over the internet. I do a online webcast radio show, and after 20 minutes you have a 15-20 second delay which gets bigger as time goes on.
