    Do the webcam record sound ? If yes, what is the process of adjustment?

  • singerguy74 Apr 17, 2008

    I had the same problem. To fix it I unplugged the webcam, uninstalled all the software and reinstalled everything. It worked fine after that.......for a while. Then it quit again. There's a software update it keeps yelling at me about. When I download it the zip file wants to check every individual file about overwriting. The boxes pop up immediately so I am unable to check the option to overwrite without asking. I've been frustrated so far......

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

Volumne control


Hi BCDC

Have you checked that the mute function has not been turned on. It provides a -50dB reduction in audio that may be producing you drama.

Audio problem with my webcam


what make, model, motherboard, and sound card are you using on your computer. I understand your desire to know why the system would not be working otherwise.. What kind of microphone other then the headset are you using and do you have every reason to believe said microphone is a good mic?
