Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam

1 Answer

The voice track and the picture are "off" a bit - is there any way to adjust this? In other words when I'm recording - and then watching - my mouth is 'behind' my words by just a second. We aren't in synch!

    The video works fine, but the audui is just a bit off. The problem is, it becomes progressively worse over the length of the recorded video, until
    yer saying, "NO NO NO"
    but the person on screen is gesturing, "yes yes yes"

    I'm not what you would call computer literate,
    but I just paid good money for hunk of plastic
    that makes me sound like Santa on tranquilizers.

    Nope, not the fix for me. I get sound, it's just slightly off track

Most webcams can be focused manually. Try turning the plastic ring around the lens. I would need more info about the sluggishness of the tracking problem. Perhaps you need more RAM added to your computer.

How do I set up creative cam for singsnap..karokee site..its like its running too many cams.and won't let me use the wizard to set up the sing site..even..its very frustrating..but when I plug in my old...


SingSnap Voice and video Setup
SingSnap is a free site boasting an extensive song list with a wide range of styles and time periods available.
(There's plenty of Def Leppard!) Don't be fooled by what's available to view - the site lets you use three kinds of
web cams. It seems few folks use them though, but who knows why. There's a configuration wizard process for audio,
video, and Internet settings, making it a real, well, snap to set up. The site lets you tweak your video look, and
turn on or off ratings, comments, duets, and embeds. There's a pay option of $7 a month that removes advertising and
gives you an expanded song selection.

Copy this web site and paste it in your browser and HIT ENTER:

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/singandrecord/intro

CLICK on this: Run the SingSnap setup wizard...

Then you will find the SINGSNSP WIZARD, follow the instructions and it should work with both Video & Audio.
At the bottom of the WIZARD click on PROCEED.

Hope this helps. Bud

HERE IS THE FAQ SECTION WHICH MAY ALSO BE OF HELP TO YOU>

Copy this site to your web browser address bar

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/help/faq

for additional Frequeuently Asked Questions (FAQ) I inserted a few below to help you.

#1 Can I improve the video quality on my recordings?

Make sure you have nice, bright lighting for recording video. Also, you can try running the Setup Wizard again.


#2 Can you help me find "Stereo Mix" / "What U Hear" on my sound card?

Sure, click "Start" -> "Control Panel" -> "Sounds and Audio Devices" -> "Audio" -> Click the "Volume" button under "Sound recording" -> "Options" -> "Properties" -> make sure everything is checked -> click "OK".

You should now see the "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" line if it's supported by your sound card.


#3 Can I use a USB microphone to record?

Yes, you can. When you record with SingSnap you have the option to "Enable Music" in the preview step of the recording process. When "Enable Music" is checked the voice track from your USB microphone will be mixed in with the music track.


#4 How should my sound card be configured when "Enable Music" is checked?

When "Enable Music" is checked it means the voice track from your computer will be mixed in with the music track from our server. For this reason your sound card settings should be set to record "Mic" and not "What U Hear" or "Stereo Mix" so that only your voice is recorded.

Here's a step by step guide on how to do this in Windows XP:

- Click "Start", (possibly "Settings") and "Control Panel"
- Double Click "Sound And Audio Devices"
- Click the "Audio" tab at the top
- Under "Sound Recording", click the "Volume" button (about half way down)

This brings up a new box, likely titled "Record Control" with some sliders on it. You need to look for "Mic", "Microphone" or "Input". If you don't see this, look for something that is similar or means the same thing. If you still don't see anything:

- Click "Options" (in the menu at the top of this window)
- Click "Properties"
- In the white box, check "Microphone" or anything similar
- Click OK

Now try to select the microphone (or whatever it is called on your machine).

If you are using a Webcam or USB microphone or mixer, you don't need to do any of this. Just run the wizard and select your webcam or USB mic from there.

Hope this is of some help to you. Bud

Voice does not work


You probably want to go into your Quickcam settings (audio) and make sure the microphone is set to the ‘Logitech Microphone.’
