It is an easy fix on Skype, I am assuming that is the program you are using for video conferencing. If not you will have to do just about the same thing to correct it. In Skype go to the tools selection on the top bar, select options from the menu, select audio settings and use the drop down selection list and change the source to the USB Mic on the camera from the current selection. You should be able to hear them once this is done. In other programs you need to do just about the same thing since windows uses the default mic. plug in the back of the computer. You just have to change it to the correct source for the mic. Good Luck, RAC

You have a laptop and it has a built in mic You need to nominate your webcam mic as default
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
Its not due to the laptop, the other person is viewing you on the internet (Yahoo/Msn etc) so the Video might get frozen sometimes or may be a lot many times depending on the bandwidth or the server load.
The voice is due to the microphone you are using, you can use microphone with noise reduction technology with some noise reduction utility.
if you have the correct driver ...and it works on other instant massaging programs..like yahoo messenger or so...it means that the problem is from settings and so ...and its nothing wrong with th ecamera ...so ..try to reinstall skype ...
