The VX3000 has a built in microphone so no, you won't need a microphone. You will need speakers connected to your PC's audio output to hear voice chat.

High audio whistle in background on VX3000 LifeCam


Normal 0 If the people you are talking to have speakers they hear youand you will get feed back of your voice. Have them turn down the speakerlevel or better yet use a headset and this will no longer be a problem.
Hope this helps. Bud

Vx3000 live broadcast is bad


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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

I just bought a microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 (webcam), and i keep hearing a buzzing sound on my audio, my video is perfect, but when i talk you can hear it buzzing..


I had the samething with a VX-1000 a few weeks ago. The Microsoft software was conflicting with another capture card I have installed. I disable the other capture device in the Device Manager and downloaded the newest Lifecam S/W from MS.

To open Device Manager, right click on START, right click on My Computer and left click on Manage.
When the window opens, locate Device Manger in the left side list and click on it. It will open on the right side. Look through the list under Sound for another audio capture device. Right click on it and the choose Disable. Close everything down to your desktop.

Next, open the Control Panel and go to Add/Remove programs. Remove the current installation of Lifecam. Now go to http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE and fill in the blank fields, webcam, model, OS, etc. and downlaod the lastest version of the software. Disconnect the webcam and run the istallation. Plug the camera back in when you are prompted to do so.

I also found that it worked better for me when I used a seperate microphone.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you.

I can't hear my voice when I talk


First of all you have to check if its on. If it was you would've been hearing your voice but if you have VISTA then right click on the speaker thing and it will show all these things you're going to have to go to the Microphone settings and change it to be LIFECAM VX 1000 so you could talk into the camera (You change the settings) Thats what i think is wrong,

Lifecam vx3000 won't display video option in messenger


Did you have the camera plugged into the USB port when you installed the software program?
If you did, disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program, and when the program asks for the camera to be plugged in then do so. It should work okay then. Additional info below on setup of the Skype program if you need it.

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