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

Re: Audio too low and not syched with video
Go to Control Panel and Click on Sounds, Click
on Audio, then Click on the Microphone. Then Click on the drop
down and select Camera Microphone.
Click OK and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

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.
TEST SPEAKERS Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel Select "Playback Devices" The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible Right click on the volume graph and click "Test" Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard
SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC Click "Recording" tab. To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties" In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK' Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later) Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
Make sure your mic is set as default - especially if you have a laptop that already has a built in mic TEST SPEAKERS Right click on speaker icon in System Tray Select "Playback Devices" The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible Right click on the volume graph and click "Test" Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

there is no microphone on ur webcam, how u can record a voice without a microphone, so use a desktop microphone ( or headphone with microphone ), connect it to ur pc through mic in. and record again, then, u'll see the video with sound when u plyaback it.
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
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.
