    HI, In reply to your questions.

    1) The delay is 0.5 sec.

    2) It happens when I contact relations in Canada.

    3) It also happens when I view myself in setup utility.

    Hope this helps and thanks for taking the trouble to look int my problem. Jim

    Hi, Thanks for your help but can you tell me what the correct speed for this port should be.Unfortunately changing the USB port did not correct the problem. Again many thanks Jim

    How much of a delay?

    Is this happening when you are connected with someone else, or in a cam chat room?

    How does it respond when you view yourself in the setup utility?

OK, that's a start.

First make sure you are plugged directly into the PC, meaning that it's not plugged into a USB hub of any kind. Also, if you have one of those newer monitors with the USB ports on it - make sure it's not plugged into this either.

Second, depending on the PC, some manufacturers place USB 1.1 ports in the front of the cases, and USB 2.0 in the rear of it.

If you have if plugged into a front port, try a rear port. I know this can be a pain if you have the tower on the floor, and the cam on top of the monitor - usually the wires aren't very long. A 6 foot USB extension cable is relatively cheap.

If it has a delay with the setup utility, I've seen the wrong speed port cause this, due to the transfer speed of the port itself being too slow.

My lifecam VX 3000 has about a second delay in when I move versus when it shows movement on the monitor. Is there a way to correct it in the software?


How much memory do you have installed in your computer? The camera requires extra memory to function properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Have visual camera delay. using windows xp.


Your cam is perfect. when youuse it from my computer> view my cam> u see faster. But when you on your cam in messenger there is 1 or 2 sec delay. Its happend by internet speed. But as per your information 1 - 2 sec delay is a good result of your web cam . Just enjoy it.
Some people face 3-4 sec delay. all of these depend on internet upload speed.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback

Logitech webcam that doesn't want to work with skype now


I experienced the same symptom (Skype would load with WinXP but NOT recoginize my HP Elite webcam and its ArcSoft drivers). I noticed that I could 'cure' the problem by manually stopping Skype after WinXP loaded (right click on the Skype task and Quit). Then, when Skype has stopped running and Windows is still up, manually restart Skype.

It appeared that the problem was one of task startup order. My system runs McAfee's Secuity Suite and that takes a FULL 2.5 minutes to activate after the initial Windows desktop appears.

So, for grins, I searched for a freeware startup manager (used WinPatrol) and installed it. I assigned the Skype startup task to the delayed column and set the delay to 2.5 minutes so Skype wouldn't try to load before the McAfee firewall was up and running. That cured the problem of Skype starting without seeing a webcam!

I played with the delay and found even WinPatrol's minimum delay (10-30 seconds) also provided relief...

Aim Conversations Delayed


Check the format that you are using for your voice and your videos to make sure they are are the same. You can also check the quality of it to make sure it is not slowing down the voice more than the video.

Need advice on webcam's


You can use any webcam you like with any computer you like. I use a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX. It's quite good, the video (if viewed locally) doesn't lag, but it will over the internet; that's the nature of the beast. But the audio is fine. You can find one for about $40-50. There's also one model above and one model below. I've had trouble w/the model below; wouldn't install on my parents machine and I've yet to have the chance to try it on mine. But you can't really go wrong with Logitech. Just about everything they make is good.

Hello, Well this could be many things but all of them are related to bandwidth. The "mount full of marbles" effect comes from the fact that you packets are being delayed and messed up by your upstream connection. I would be interested in knowing what is you upstream speed on your internet connection.
