Your cam is perfect. when youuse it from my computer> view my cam> u see faster. But when you on your cam in messenger there is 1 or 2 sec delay. Its happend by internet speed. But as per your information 1 - 2 sec delay is a good result of your web cam . Just enjoy it.
Some people face 3-4 sec delay. all of these depend on internet upload speed.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback
I experienced the same symptom (Skype would load with WinXP but NOT recoginize my HP Elite webcam and its ArcSoft drivers). I noticed that I could 'cure' the problem by manually stopping Skype after WinXP loaded (right click on the Skype task and Quit). Then, when Skype has stopped running and Windows is still up, manually restart Skype.
It appeared that the problem was one of task startup order. My system runs McAfee's Secuity Suite and that takes a FULL 2.5 minutes to activate after the initial Windows desktop appears.
So, for grins, I searched for a freeware startup manager (used WinPatrol) and installed it. I assigned the Skype startup task to the delayed column and set the delay to 2.5 minutes so Skype wouldn't try to load before the McAfee firewall was up and running. That cured the problem of Skype starting without seeing a webcam!
I played with the delay and found even WinPatrol's minimum delay (10-30 seconds) also provided relief...
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.
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
Well this could be many things but all of them are related to bandwidth. The "mount full of marbles" effect comes from the fact that you packets are being delayed and messed up by your upstream connection. I would be interested in knowing what is you upstream speed on your internet connection.
There are a couple of ways to go about this.
You can download a Microsoft Update KB900485 which is an acoustic echo canceling driver.
This specific fix is a random timing bugcheck
when using two-way audio.
There is also a paych you can download from Logitech.
Or, you can try buying another microphone and using it instead of the built-in microphone.
It's more than likely a slow connection dependant on each persons speed, and the more people on line the more bandwidth gets taken up, it's like at peak times trying to stuff a sausage down a straw so to speak.
Also make sure that there are no other programmes running in the background taking up processor and memory usage, this also slows the connection.
