I cannot get my Gear Head camera to work with Skype. It works with the gmail video chat, but I can't get it to connect on Skype. It is the black and silver 3 legged ball model with the snap shot button...


Most likely you need to be logged out of the gmail chat and then should be able to use it in skype. I believe, you cannot share the video concurrently.

The microphone on my HP pro webcam won't work. When I test it, it just buzzes. I tried changing the sound on my computer control panel and on skype but neither work


This could be caused by many things including that the microphone itself has either stopped working or if you just purchased the unit it may be defective. but it can also be caused by a improper installation in windows itself.
to reinstall the camera please follow the steps outlined below.

First step i would unplug the camera and uninstall the current drivers.
2nd i would follow this link to Hp's website where you can download the latest HP pro webcam driver/software. 3rd after downloading the software do not plug the camera in and restart your computer. 4th. After your computer has restarted and all the normal startup processes are running. Open the newly downloaded drivers for the HP pro camera. install the camera. After the installation is done then you can proceed to plugin the camera. Unless you were prompted to at a specific time during the installation.
After that you should be done and it should be installed and working.
If the microphone on the webcam is still not working it is most likely that the microphone itself has stopped working. If you just bought the unit you should return it for an exchange. If the product is still under warranty you should contact Hp and get it fixed under warranty.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

Configure to Skype

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

I have a Logitech Pro 9000. After installation, I found that my head phone set that I am using for SKYPE calls was disabled and the Pro 9000 microphone is enabled. There is an echo problem when I speak on...


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.
