Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
Three of us are united in this problem.In a two way video conversation we get good video both ways, but sound only one way. It appears to be random who gets the sound. We have tried installing - uninstalling. We have checked the sound and video functions on both ends. We have put the Cameras on different computers. two are running XP home, one is running Vista - both have the same problem. Occasionally, we will get the sound and video both ways - that also appears to be random, as nothing different was done. Is this a port problem? It's exasperating to say the least. It also happens when two cameras are VX 3000 and when one camera is Logitech, and when two cameras are Logitech

CONFIGURE TO YOUR CHAT PROGRAM

Web Camera’s have to be
setup on the program they are to be used with.
Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to
broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:
C. Windows Live Messenger:
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
