Using Logitech webcam with Skype-INTERMITTENT sound-camera fine
Im trying to use the Logitech webcam with Skype. When we connect up - first the sound comes thru once we are connected, then i load up the camera video option for our video call. Soon after, I start to loose audio. At first its like a poor connection on a mobile phone - hearing only snippets of sound, then the sound goes completely. The camera works fine thru all this. After 5 min or so, the sound will come back for a couple of minutes - before it loses it again. Totally frustrating! What is best to be done?
When i first loaded up Logitech wbcam - it seemedto crash my computer, unless that was just a coincidence - took the hard drive out and loaded it up to an external hd, but couldnt get rid of Logitech - tho i retried to use it - the camera wordks well - but there are the sound problems as stated above. please help!

Re: Using Logitech webcam with Skype-INTERMITTENT...
If you need to get rid of logitech go into device manager devices
make sure cam is compatible with operating system
Set cam up with skype
Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card. Then click on the Video Settings. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.
hope this solves

Make sure you can see yourself in the Webcam software window
Close the webcam software window
Make sure your webcam is selected in Skype settings so that Skype can use it:
Sign in to your Skype, click Tools>Options>General>Video Settings
Check (click to have "tick" in the box) both "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call
Under Select Webcam (Default video device) choose Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX
In Audio Settings choose Logitech Mic to be your default microphone (you have it built in your camera)
Check to mark the box "Let Skype adjust my audio settings"
It should work now.
If you experience issues like signing in to your Skype is taking too long, Can't sign in, or you can't see or hear the other person, then you should contact your internet provider for slow connection. Also, you can check your connection using Speed Test online (www.speedtest.net).
You are correct.
For Logitech to work with Skype you need to install the Logitech driver for your model WEBcab. Then you need to configure Skype to use the Logitech WEBcam and microphone.
To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then configure Skype. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub, connect it directly to the computer's USB port.
I have notice that on some connections the speed is not fast enough to handle cam and voice at same time, If its not connections speed. He can go into control panel and run sound check for mic. It may help solve any problem if it's in the Audio drivers, And if that still does not help try a different mic. and see if that works. Hope that helps you out some what. Thanks
Both try using windows live and set up audio and video in the settings as you did with Skpe, as it's a similair programme and supports any camera.
If that works better then Skype has a problem with your camera makes.
