    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.

    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.

I found the timer control button by the shutter on my Canon PowerShot S3is and can see what it does on the display. How do I take time-delayed photos?

After you select it with the small black button, it should kick in by pressing the regular shutter button.
Make sure the timer icon is showing...
Give it a test run...that should do it.

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.
