Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

Skype working on my mac, but not on theirs

My girlfriend runs a Dell 600M computer, and I just bought her a new lifecam show, which took a long time to download, then tried using skype but couldn't hear or see her. She can hear me ok sometimes, but not very well. Also it says the connection is being lost. Windows are not minimizing- taking a very long time. Basically nothing is working. Her camera works fine, just not on skype- almost as if too big or something. I have had no problems on my end

Try going to your computers control panel or preferences (if your mac or pc) and go to something that has to do with audio. And if it is properly connect it should say mic. Check to see if it is on.

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

I am new to using a web cam. I purchased the VX6000 and everything is working, however, the people I talk to on it only see static pictures of me (Skype).


I think what they are seeing is the photo you took with your webcam when you set up your account.
Make sure your webcam is is working OK and then check your settings

  1. Start Skype.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your LifeCam device as the default microphone. For example, select Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000.
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your LifeCam device as the default Webcam. For example, select Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test LifeCam by making a Skype test call.

Microsoft LifeCam vx 3000?


According to the reading I just did, neither Windows Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger for Mac OS X have viable webcam support, particularly in the area of sending webcam from Mac to PC. I suggest both you and the person you are trying to webcam with download Skype, from  http://www.skype.com/download/skype/macosx/

If you have any further issues after this, don't hesitate to comment and ask for help again, there are other possible problems I could help you solve.

How can I get Microsoft Lifecam VX-5000 to work with Skype?


I had the same problem with Lifecam VX3000 on Vista, and tried all the remedies everyone suggested online, including upgrades to driver, software, and DirectX. I even went out and bought a new webcam by a different manufacturer.

Turns out the answer was simpler. DON'T turn on the Lifecam software before you start Skype!

If you do, Skype thinks that "another program" is using the webcam. Open Skype alone; it will find the webcam and turn it on. Now I can chat with our little grandson in Kuala Lumpur. Hope this helps.
