To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"

Mic stuff up???


There may be an option in MSN software (under Tools perhaps) that states which microphone and camera to use while using the program.

I would verify it is set to use the correct ones you are wanting to you and see if that works!

Make sure you have not started your WEB cam.
Start Skype then click on Tools - then Options - Audio Settings then select your Microphone.
Then click on Video settings - then select your webcam, your image should now appear.
Select your Receive and Show video options - suggest you use
Only people in my contact list
Click SAVE (your settings)
To add people to your Contact list - Click on Contacts (at the top) - then New Contact and follow the instructions.
You can also test your Skype by click on Echo / Sound Test Service.

If you still have problems, get back to me.
Have fun

Vaio internal mic


Normal 0 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.

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.
Hope this helps. Bud

LIFECAM WONT INSTALL RIGHT


Go to the link below and download the latest software for the camera.

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE

Uninstall what you have now. Restart the computer. Install the software that you downloaded. DO NOT connect the camera until the installation tells you to do so. Following the installation, adjust the mic and speakers. I have found that it is better to use a headset w/mic rather than a mic and speakers.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.
