I am getting a large amount of audio feedback (pulsing) when using skype and the logitech C500 webcam. The noise may not occur the first time I connect, but almost always occurs when I reconnect. Shutting...


You do not say if you are using a laptop with built in speakers or desktop with add on speakers. Also no indication of your OS.
I think the first thing you need to try is using a headset to cut out the possibility of 'feedback'
Check out your audio set-up

Typical audio set up

Laptop x webcam/mic x Vista x Skype
If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray
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 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

Restart computer

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE

Start Skype.
On the Tools menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Set your speakers as default.
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Click 'Save'

We cant record a video clip with sound - only picture


You need to go into the recorder options ant tell it the sound source to us is the USB Mic. on the webcam, or what ever the source of the Mic. is. There are several sources in Skype that allow changes to be made. Use the drop down menu for the selection and select the one you are using for the mic. Good Luck, RAC

Unable to communicate on msn with my genius videocam look webcam


Please rate me afterwards Step 1: The "Tools" menu of Windows Live Messenger

1. Recover Windows Live Messenger in our software if you do not have it yet.
2. Start the installation of the software.
3. Once this is done, go to the Tools menu software.

In this menu, two links are important in order to properly configure your camera:"Setting audio and video" and "Parameters of the webcam."This is the first that we will discuss first and foremost, the second used primarily to adjust the parameters of the image in the secondary stage but we are dealing with. Launch therefore setup wizard and click on "Next".

Step 2: The setting of loudspeakers

1. Select your hardware in the menu.
2. Check the box if you use a helmet.
3. Test finally your sound output in order to adjust the volume.

It is possible that you find in the menu several choices. That means you have several elements in your computer capable of transmitting sound, a dedicated card and your motherboard, for example. In this case, make sure to select well the correct input, what you quickly verify the test by loudspeakers.

Step 3: At the turn of the microphone

1. Select your sound source.
2. Start talking to your microphone.
3. Observe the cursor, if it moves, your microphone is working.

Two remarks on the stage configuration. On the one hand, if your camera has no microphone, you must go through a device that you must annex plug into the pink on your sound card. On the other hand, if your mouse does not work, you may have selected the wrong input device sound. Take particular care in this setting and not leave this page only when the cursor s'agitera,
indicating that your voice is recognized by the software.

Step 4: Turning finally to the image

1. Specify this time the source of the video.
2. Observe the window of return: if your setup is satisfactory, your image should appear.
3. Adjust the frame rendering through the "Option" button.

Audio on Webcam is distorted - seems to be recording at a slower speed and palying back at normal spped


as a workaround you can use the headset, you just need to configure your messenger again to use the sound from the mic input instead from the webcam.

Microphone not picking up the voice


In order to use another microphone other than the built in microphone on a Logitech web camera, you will need to configure the new microphone to be your system's default microphone.

To change the default microphone in Windows:
  1. Click "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."
  2. Open the applet that corresponds to your operating system.
    1. Windows 98 users, double click on "Multimedia."
    2. Windows Me and Windows 2000 users, double click on "Sounds and Multimedia."
    3. Windows XP users, double click on "Sound and Audio Devices"
  3. Click the Audio tab.
  4. Set the microphone to the sound card in the drop down box that is appropriate for your operating system.
    1. Windows 98 and Me users, click on the Preferred Device for Recording box.
    2. Windows XP and Windows 2000, click on the Default Device box under Sound Recording.
If you are using the built in mic, open the Quickcam 11.5 software and adjust Audio Settings.
The Audio Settings provide access to device selection, basic audio levels, and AEC.
  • Select Microphone– Allows you to select desired microphone for video calling and video recording applications.
  • Volume indicator – Indicates the current input volume level..
  • Adjust Recording Volume – Toggles input volume level.
  • Cancel Echo – Enables or disables AEC for RightLight and RightLight 2 supported cameras.
  • Select Speakers – Allows you to select desired speaker source for video calling and recording applications.
  • Audio Tuning Wizard – Launches the Audio Tuning Wizard
If all this fails, it could indicate a problem with your soundcard. Try using some speakers or another mic and see if they work. If they don't, you card is faulty. Remenber to set up your mic in the volume properties. On the lower right hand of the screen, you should see a volume icon. Right click and select open volume control. Select Options and the Properties. Select Recording and check all boxes below. Close that window and now make sure Mic level is max and not muted.

Hope that helps!

Crackling occurs after 1 minute of video&audio


Hi that all sounds to me to be a fairly classic "Electret" Mic problem. I have seen .. lol.. or rather, heard it, a few times B4.. the "Frying" sound you hear is the faulty electronics in the Electret microphone.. I would try replacing the Mic, if you can get one the same size, it shouldn't be too hard to Open the camera up, unsolder the old Mic, & replace it. There are really only a few standard Electret Mic inserts... As an aside, sometimes it can simply be a bad solder joints to the wires on the actual mic itself, ya may wanna try good reflow/resolder first B4 ya replace.. This sometimes is all it requires...
