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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You 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.

If you are able to hear audio with a music CD or any other application, then you must un-install the software for the camera, reboot and then reinstall.

If you are unable to hear any sound, then your audio driver may have been knocked out by the camera installation. To reinstall, go to manufacturer of computer's website, click on support, enter model number and choose operating system. The page that follows will allow you to download, free, the audio driver. Restart the computer and see if this helps.

I can hear the other person clearly, but they cannot hear me when I'm on google talk or Skype


are you on a desktop or laptop? if on a desktop sometimes there are multiple places to plug in your mic, make sure you have not only plugged it in the right port, AND checked to see how high your mic sensitivity is on the software side.

on skype, click TOOLS, OPTIONS, Audio settings and talk, if you see the green power meter lighting up then make sure to slide the sensitivity up, or check and uncheck the auto feature, depending on where you had it try this and see what you get. Also turn donw your speakers as if your speakers are getting a feedback loop or are hearing the other people talk louder than it can hear you then it wont work either.

High audio whistle in background on VX3000 LifeCam


Normal 0 If the people you are talking to have speakers they hear youand you will get feed back of your voice. Have them turn down the speakerlevel or better yet use a headset and this will no longer be a problem.
Hope this helps. Bud

I can't hear my voice when I talk


First of all you have to check if its on. If it was you would've been hearing your voice but if you have VISTA then right click on the speaker thing and it will show all these things you're going to have to go to the Microphone settings and change it to be LIFECAM VX 1000 so you could talk into the camera (You change the settings) Thats what i think is wrong,

Webcam no sound


Alright, so we know you have sound on your computer because you can hear them when they talk to you. We also know that there is an issue with the microphone side of things because when you record something you hear nothing.
Please go to Control Panel/Sounds & Audio Devices/Audio Tab.
Tell me if what you have under Default Device and Sound Recording Device are the same or if they're different. They should be the same. Let me know the results.

Audio Problem


are your parents using the same computer? If so, have your mom modify mic settings during her conversation or else raise her voice a bit.
The same could work if they are using different computers
