I've setup my cam so that the sound is getting picked up from my line/mic in input. I am able to record but when i review my video. After ten seconds the sound dramatically slows down and video freezes...Can anyone advise me of what may be going on???

TEST SPEAKERS 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 Right click on the volume graph and click "Test" Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard
SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC Click "Recording" tab. To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties" In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK' Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later) Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
Im not sure I understood exactly the issue but the solutions are more than one ... you may just uninstall the web cam ...and set the mic you want to use and after that reinstall the web cam ...and you have every chances to be installed and the external mic to remain in use.. or ...to use the mic from the external pink entry of the pc ...just select it from the sound driver ...options.. in your capture program you might also have the choice for which mic to use .... in your yahoo messenger for example you have this choice on preferences /audio device.... you also may find on your control panel ...sound and audio device /audio../and for the sound recording audio device ...select the one you want... good luck !
check that pc sound proteries are set to usb camera and not your computers own sound card . can be check via properties on speaker in task bar. Right click speaker and sellect adjust audio properties and make sure usb camera is selected for voice recording.
Right Click the volume icon in the taskbar. Select RECORDING DEVICES, Select the device you wish to use. Click properties. Ensure it says ENABLE (use this device). Then Click the ADVANCED TAB at the top and make sure it is set to "ALLOW APPLICATIONS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THIS DEVICE".
Then open the Messenger software you use and click the tool tab. Then click the Cam/Audio option. Make sure you have the correct mic/cam selected.
I took the cam apart, removed the mic from its seat and gently separated the red and black wires - ran the red one over top the lens and the black one underneath. Replaced the mic, screwed it all back together and the problem is gone. For now. One tip is to record sound using Windows Sound Recorder while you're doing this, watch the input line and when it goes flat you know the buzz is gone. While it buzzez, the line will be active.
