If you are comfortable with the sound from your regular speakers, you do not need a headphone. If you would like to keep your communication private, say while you chat in Yahoo messenger or skype or any such, it is an option to have a headphone. Just a question of privacy. Not a necessity.

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.

I am getting a large amount of audio feedback (pulsing) when using skype and the logitech C500 webcam. The noise may not occur the first time I connect, but almost always occurs when I reconnect. Shutting...


You do not say if you are using a laptop with built in speakers or desktop with add on speakers. Also no indication of your OS.
I think the first thing you need to try is using a headset to cut out the possibility of 'feedback'
Check out your audio set-up

Typical audio set up

Laptop x webcam/mic x Vista x Skype
If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
To set required mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click OK
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE

Start Skype.
On the Tools menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Set your speakers as default.
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Click 'Save'

  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your Logitech device as the default microphone. (if it has a built-in mic) For example, select Logitech Communicate STX.
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your Logitech device as the default Webcam. For example, select. Logitech Communicate STX
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test Logitech by making a Skype test call.

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).

Logitech webcam with built-in microphone and notebook premium headset


dear fixya,

greetings.

thank you for your e-mail. however, i decided not to use the headset anymore since my webcam has already built-in microphone. i think eventhough i will use the headset, the problem regarding the noise during conversation will not go away. i think think is really the part of on-line chatting.

thank you and more power to fixya team.

sincerely,

babesky
