http://www.free-codecs.com/AMCap_download.htm
to download the Free AMCAP Video Capture Program.
AMCap v9.20 AMCap is a small yet fully functional video capture application compatible with Microsoft DirectShow. It is based on the sample AMCap from the Microsoft DirectX 9 SDK. AMCap supports still captures to BMP, JPEG and PNG formats and it remembers your Video Input, Video Standard and Video size settings from previous session. It has some nice features like multimonitoring support, zooming, aspect ratio and deinterlacing features.

AMCap is a small and effictive piece of software and definitely worth trying. Hop

SOURCE: Lose webcam connection in Skype when using a headset

Have you checked the recording settings in Windows and in Skype? Try changing the default recording device to specifically indicate the device that has your headset plugged. I think the webcam also has a mic and that should not be selected.

Other thing to check is if there is some kind of resource conflict between your USB controller and audio card (use Device Manager).

  3. Just below that, go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
  4. Then after completing the Audio Setup, on left panel, go to down and click on Super Webcam and click on Start Super Webcam Mode Automatically.
  5. Then click APPLY and then OK.
  6. Next click on MESSENGER and then click on MY WEBCAM and you camera should BRODCSAST and you will see your picture.
  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Sounds like you may have to re-install the software

I would suggest you disconnect the webcam and use an uninstaller to remove the logitech software such as the free version of "Revo" uninstaller.

Use it in advanced mode and once clean download the new Logitech software

I cannot get my Gear Head camera to work with Skype. It works with the gmail video chat, but I can't get it to connect on Skype. It is the black and silver 3 legged ball model with the snap shot button...


Most likely you need to be logged out of the gmail chat and then should be able to use it in skype. I believe, you cannot share the video concurrently.
