Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

This webcam does not have a built in mic - you will need a separate mic for it. You could buy a headset with a mic attached

Quickcam communicate stx


well, i finally found the website for logitech and found an article on there from a tech guy, (i guess that is what he does) the article was titled, "How to make your logitech camera work in an im." when i read that i followed the instructions and know it is not my cam, but the messenger i was using. i don't know what to do about that because it is yahoo and there support is NILL!!!!!!, i repeat NILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it takes some finding (the article) but it says to try your cam for 5 minutes making a video from quick capture. if it works ok then it is the website and not the cam. may i say yahoo stinks! also he said that it is 99% of the time the website is the problem. not a quote. hope this helps someone out there that is having the same trouble.
