I have just bought a Microsoft Lifecam VX-1000 Webcam with
built-in Microphone.

I have installed the software on my laptop which uses Windows XP system but when I try to use it with Skype I can see & hear the other person but they can only SEE me but cannot HEAR me.

I have changed the Sound & audio settings in my control panel to link to my webcam. When I do the Skype test call I do not hear my voice back. Can you tell me what I need to do please to get the microphone working?

Thank you to anyone who can help me with this.

Make sure that you have the Microphone pointed to your webcam within SKYPE. I know that with Ventrillo you need to set it up to see the device within the program. I would look for options within Skype.

SOURCE: VX-6000 microphone problem

Normal 0 See section A. Skype in the info below.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  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

SOURCE: I can't hear my voice when I talk

First of all you have to check if its on. If it was you would've been hearing your voice but if you have VISTA then right click on the speaker thing and it will show all these things you're going to have to go to the Microphone settings and change it to be LIFECAM VX 1000 so you could talk into the camera (You change the settings) Thats what i think is wrong,

If she can hear you - your mic is fine
The most likely cause would be her mic or your speakers - did you make your speakers default in Skype?

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

How to use Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam with Skype


well once you have the microsoft webcam software installed..
that is the first step then to go to skype and in skype it will have you set up the video and audio upon first use...
iff you have already past first use.. then when you make a call with skype as long as the software is installed then skype will automatically detect this and use it as the default recording device and it searches also for microphones automatically...
so really not much for you to do, once the microsoft webcam is installed then skype setup takes care of the rest...

Hello,
Is the microphone built into this webcam? If it is are you using this as the microphone while in Skype? If you open Skype and go to options and then tools you can select which microphone that Skype uses. Please update with answers so I can help further.

Microsoft lifecam 1000


You can download the driver here :- http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/236296/microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-vx-1000-vx-3000-vx-6000-driver-1.21-windows-xp-free-download.html
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.
