How do I set up creative cam for singsnap..karokee site..its like its running too many cams.and won't let me use the wizard to set up the sing site..even..its very frustrating..but when I plug in my old...

SingSnap Voice and video Setup
SingSnap is a free site boasting an extensive song list with a wide range of styles and time periods available.
(There's plenty of Def Leppard!) Don't be fooled by what's available to view - the site lets you use three kinds of
web cams. It seems few folks use them though, but who knows why. There's a configuration wizard process for audio,
video, and Internet settings, making it a real, well, snap to set up. The site lets you tweak your video look, and
turn on or off ratings, comments, duets, and embeds. There's a pay option of $7 a month that removes advertising and
gives you an expanded song selection.

Copy this web site and paste it in your browser and HIT ENTER:

CLICK on this: Run the SingSnap setup wizard...

Then you will find the SINGSNSP WIZARD, follow the instructions and it should work with both Video & Audio.
At the bottom of the WIZARD click on PROCEED.

Hope this helps. Bud

for additional Frequeuently Asked Questions (FAQ) I inserted a few below to help you.

#1 Can I improve the video quality on my recordings?

Make sure you have nice, bright lighting for recording video. Also, you can try running the Setup Wizard again.

#2 Can you help me find "Stereo Mix" / "What U Hear" on my sound card?

Sure, click "Start" -> "Control Panel" -> "Sounds and Audio Devices" -> "Audio" -> Click the "Volume" button under "Sound recording" -> "Options" -> "Properties" -> make sure everything is checked -> click "OK".

You should now see the "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" line if it's supported by your sound card.

#3 Can I use a USB microphone to record?

Yes, you can. When you record with SingSnap you have the option to "Enable Music" in the preview step of the recording process. When "Enable Music" is checked the voice track from your USB microphone will be mixed in with the music track.

#4 How should my sound card be configured when "Enable Music" is checked?

When "Enable Music" is checked it means the voice track from your computer will be mixed in with the music track from our server. For this reason your sound card settings should be set to record "Mic" and not "What U Hear" or "Stereo Mix" so that only your voice is recorded.

Here's a step by step guide on how to do this in Windows XP:

- Click "Start", (possibly "Settings") and "Control Panel"
- Double Click "Sound And Audio Devices"
- Click the "Audio" tab at the top
- Under "Sound Recording", click the "Volume" button (about half way down)

This brings up a new box, likely titled "Record Control" with some sliders on it. You need to look for "Mic", "Microphone" or "Input". If you don't see this, look for something that is similar or means the same thing. If you still don't see anything:

- Click "Options" (in the menu at the top of this window)
- Click "Properties"
- In the white box, check "Microphone" or anything similar
- Click OK

Now try to select the microphone (or whatever it is called on your machine).

If you are using a Webcam or USB microphone or mixer, you don't need to do any of this. Just run the wizard and select your webcam or USB mic from there.

Hope this is of some help to you. Bud

Logitech 9000 recording problem

My suggestion for recording music of any sort is to disable the cam mic and use a good quality mic plugged into the sound card as the mic in a cam is more suited to voice.

Sound problem

Normal 0 Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.
Hope this helps. Bud

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.
