Re: audio problem with my webcam
What make, model, motherboard, and sound card are you using on your computer. I understand your desire to know why the system would not be working otherwise.. What kind of microphone other then the headset are you using and do you have every reason to believe said microphone is a good mic?

Launch the Logitech QuickCam or Webcam software on your computer. Verify that you see yourself Logitech Webcam software window. Close the software window. Sign in to Skype. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Click "Video Settings," check the "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call" boxes. Select your Logitech QuickCam from the drop-down list. Your webcam should display video in the window. Click "Audio Settings" if your QuickCam has a built-in microphone and select it from the microphone drop-down list. Check the "Let Skype adjust my audio settings" box in "Audio Settings" so Skype recognizes your microphone. Click "Save" to save the options for your audio and video settings. Skype will close the options menu.
On Skype run the Audio / Video setup and make sure your webcams mic is selected as the default Mic.
You will find that under tools.
I have checked and this webcam doesnt have a Mic
Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Volume Control and make sure that Microphone is not muted. Also check Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Audio, Sound Recording, Volume is not muted too.
Have you tested the webcam's microphone on your own computer? It is an easy test. You can use any audio program such as Goldwave or the sound recorder found under XP Accessories--Entertainment. Additionally you can open Control Panel, select Sound and Audio Devices. Select the Voice tab.On the bottom right there is a Test hardware button. Another common problem is that certain software can mute the microphone when launched. You can check this by clicking the Volume icon in the systray. When it opens the window check to see if the mute is clicked anywhere. Uncheck if mute is checked. Finally, your soundcard manufacturer may have an icon in control panel. An example is RealTek HD Audio Sound effect manager. You may find a tab identifying the mixer. There is usually a series of adjustments for Mic Volume, Line Volume, and Stereo Mix. Make certain that the Mic Volume is not muted.
Go to Tools | Options | Audio Settings which is how the audio and microphone settings are adjusted in Skype.
Your microphone might be muted in the Windows multimedia sound control panel - if you double-click on the speaker in the Windows taskbar you will get the mixer control panel - select Recording devices if the Microphone is not shown, make sure the MUTE checkbox is clear.
Go to Control Panel and Click on Sounds, Click
on Audio, then Click on the Microphone. Then Click on the drop
down and select Camera Microphone.
Click OK and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
