Using Skype with a webcam

I just bought a Logitech Pro 9000 webcam and now I'm having problems with Skype. Before, I used to be able to use my headset and chat to friends so I wouldn't disturb others but now I can't get the headset to work anymore. It rings through the computer speakers loudly and I feel like I have to shout at the camera to talk to the other person in skype.
How can I get to use skype through the headset again and use the webam ok. Maybe it's just a matter of deciding which microphone, speakers etc to choose.
Hopefully you can help.

Thanks, Grace

hi freeman319

you might want to try and uninstall the quickcam application. as i've researched skype is having problems with certain cams compatibility. just try and uninstall the quickcam application but not the drivers. with this you may still be able to use the quickcam with other applications.
you can uninstall it through the control panel>add remove programs

also if you are using a headset or separate mic and headset with the video call you would want to disable the mic on the quickcam
go into Device Manager and disable the microphone in the Pro 9000

ofcourse this is just some things you can try but is not guaranteed to solve your issue. please let me know if this works. thanks.

hope this helps

You need to select the correct camera from the menu options of Skype: enter the Tools-menu and select Options; select Video from the categories on the left hand side; check  Enable Skype Video and select your camera from the dropdown at the top.

Making camera work with Yahoo Instant Messenger


Windows Media Encoder enables the ability for you to "LIVE" broadcast using your webcam utilising Windows Media Encoder 9 and your participant viewers watching you using Windows Media Player at the recieving end. So in other words, you are effectively setting up "your own" live streaming broadcasts either video, audio(such as internet radio) or both from your PC without using the likes of Skype, Yahoo, IM etc.

I have version 4.0.0.206 of Skype. Don't know whether this works on versions below that. If in doubt update your version of Skype, the current version is 4.1, click here to download it if needed.

Within Skype, click Tools, Options

Click on Audio Setting, in the General Tab. Now under the microphone section, click on the down arrow and select your other device and then click 'Save'.

If the other device is not present it may need to be re-installed, Nik.

If this helps click YES below.

Lose webcam connection in Skype when using a headset


Have you checked the recording settings in Windows and in Skype? Try changing the default recording device to specifically indicate the device that has your headset plugged. I think the webcam also has a mic and that should not be selected.

Other thing to check is if there is some kind of resource conflict between your USB controller and audio card (use Device Manager).
