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:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

We have an hp with a built in webcam. i can see and hear the other person but they cannot see me. they can hear me. my camera won't turn on. we are using skype.


Try to use Skype that is the 'latest' version downloaded off of the Internet. This may be the problem.with no video with an otherwise good camera.

Also, check the the drivers for the camera to make sure it has no errors.

I am running Windows XP and I am using a webcam, and using yahoo messenger to video call a friend. They can hear me but I cant hear them. Why


Must be a issue with the compatibility between yahoo messenger versions. It happens to me quite often with some contacts and the only workaround I could find to this was to open a Conference and invite the other person to join. This way they can hear me and I can hear them as well (You have to tick hands free in the conference window).

I have a Microsoft LifeCam VX 700 web cam but i cant hear the person im talkig to, the sound is all distorted. they can hear me clearly


Play some sound file (song etc.) in your computer. If it sounds perfect then the problem is from the other side. ie. "the sound is all distorted" because the microphone is not properly handled by the person you are talking to or probably their mic is faulty.

Use on laptop creates noise & frozen picture 4 person talking to


Its not due to the laptop, the other person is viewing you on the internet (Yahoo/Msn etc) so the Video might get frozen sometimes or may be a lot many times depending on the bandwidth or the server load.

The voice is due to the microphone you are using, you can use microphone with noise reduction technology with some noise reduction utility.

Internal mic not working


In the Control Panel, double-click on Sound. Go to the Audio tab. Make sure the "Sound recording" default device is set to whatever the appropriate microphone or internal audio source should be.

We both see eachother and they can hear me but i cant hear them


It is an easy fix on Skype, I am assuming that is the program you are using for video conferencing. If not you will have to do just about the same thing to correct it. In Skype go to the tools selection on the top bar, select options from the menu, select audio settings and use the drop down selection list and change the source to the USB Mic on the camera from the current selection. You should be able to hear them once this is done. In other programs you need to do just about the same thing since windows uses the default mic. plug in the back of the computer. You just have to change it to the correct source for the mic. Good Luck, RAC

Audio problem


Firstly check that the sound has been enabled in your IM in the options or properties on the menu, and that your other persons volume slider is up in the IM software. Open up windows movie maker 2 and make a short movie as this will help with any possible problems you may have on line.
