Webcam Audio Getting sound to broadcast with streaming video using a webcam requires a few components to work in unison. Because most webcams do not have a microphone built in, you will need to buy a microphone for your computer or locate your microphone input if you have one built in (some laptops have these). The audio and video are two separate functions and must be diagnosed as such. b> Webcam Software b> If you have a webcam set up correctly and you are streaming video, then you are already halfway there. This details only how to make the sound work, so please refer to an article related to webcam video if you do not have that working already. The webcam audio and video both communicate with your computer via your webcam's software application. Due to this, you will find that there are settings specific to your webcam software for sound. Because there are various software applications that can act as an interface for your webcam, you will want to do a product-specific search on the Internet for your application's settings. Most often you will find the settings for sounds under Tools or Settings, then choosing Options or Preferences. Regardless of the application that you are using to broadcast your webcam video, you will need to ensure that your microphone is plugged into the "Microphone In" jack on your computer or laptop. The microphone input jack is commonly colored pink. b> Microphone Connection b> With your microphone plugged into the "Microphone In" audio jack, test the audio inside your webcam's software application. Most webcam applications allow you test your microphone by reading a sentence and watching a graph move as you speak. If you see this happening, then you have correctly hooked up your microphone. If you have a Windows PC you should also see if your computer recognizes your microphone by clicking on "Start" > "Settings" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the "Audio" tab you will find a section for "Sound Recording." From there you can select or change your "Default Device." b> Hardware Troubleshooting b> In the event that your microphone is not recognized by your computer, continue hardware troubleshooting by contacting your computer's support staff. With a properly connected microphone and some minor adjustments in your webcam's software application, you should be broadcasting audio with your video in no time. Hope this helps.
To test if the WEBCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - your model WEBCam and see if you can get the WEBcam to capture your image/video. If this works then the fault is with the Skype video configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drops off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select your model WEBCam.
Also check the Audio Settings for your model microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub, connect it to the USB port on your computer.

At times poor bandwidth result with these problems
Its not due to the laptop, the other person is viewing you on the internet (Yahoo/Msn etc) so the Video might get frozen sometimes or may be a lot many times depending on the bandwidth or the server load.
The voice is due to the microphone you are using, you can use microphone with noise reduction technology with some noise reduction utility.
check the LAN cable from the internet connection going to router.make a sure that wire is OK.if the wire connection is a ok go to your PC/unit then make sure the Lancard/wire less lancard driver is complete or remove the Old lan/wieless lan drivers and install a new or update the drivers.good luck and have a nice day

My microphone was working and just stopped, reading one of the forums it as suggested that the microphone connections were a known problem. I stripped mine down, rewired the microphone and hey presto it works. Hope this helps as you did not say if yours was working or your first attempt to use it
