Question about Creative Labs Creative Webcam

1 Answer

Audio too low and not syched with video

I'm looking to record a few vids of me playing guitar using my webcam, and I'm having a few problems. If anyone has any tips or advice I'd really appreciate the help

I have a 'Creative' Webcam but when I record on it, there's no sound. I turned the sound on in the settings, but still no joy. I have a 'Samson' microphone though, so I connected that up and managed to get the sound to work, but it's really really low even when I stick it right up next to my amp and turn that up to a neigbour-bothering volume. If I stick the volume on my computer up full I can hear it ok on the playback, but even then it's out of synch, so the sound is about a half second ahead of the video

I'm using the 'Creative Webcam Centre' program to record, but if you could recommend any better programs or have any solutions to my sound problems that would be great

Web cam works, and the microphone works but not toghether when you use both together it doesnt work


The issue could be the fps for your webcam video is low, and the audio continues playing while the video lags a bit. Try going to this free webcam test site. Record yourself for 15-20 seconds and then play it back. Your webcam fps rating will appear below the play back window. If it is less than 10 then your webcam isn't very good and you might want to invest in a better one with a higher fps spec. If the result is more than 10 then your webcam is fine, but the service provider you are using is lowering the bandwidth causing a lower fps result. The only thing you can do is to switch service providers. I hope this is helpful.

Logitech 9000 recording problem


My suggestion for recording music of any sort is to disable the cam mic and use a good quality mic plugged into the sound card as the mic in a cam is more suited to voice.

Logitech Notebook Quickcam (SOUND PROBLEM)


Normal 0 If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. Sometimes even awith the speakers turned down low, feedback is possible.
I recommend using a headset when videoing. Hope this is of some help. 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.

Logitech Quickcam Chat - No audio


Try testing it, last time I checked skype has a test section, its hard to find, but its there. You just talk into the mic and skype records it. Then play back.

It is possible the mic isn't working.

Before you consider taking it back, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.
