    Can you be alittle more specific. What model of camera is it?
    Have you checked to make sure you are using the mic from the camera and not the pc sound card for input?

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.

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.

Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.

No sound


Webcam Audio Getting sound to broadcast with streaming video using a webcam requires a few components to work in unison. Because most webcams do not have a microphone built in, you will need to buy a microphone for your computer or locate your microphone input if you have one built in (some laptops have these). The audio and video are two separate functions and must be diagnosed as such. b> Webcam Software b> If you have a webcam set up correctly and you are streaming video, then you are already halfway there. This details only how to make the sound work, so please refer to an article related to webcam video if you do not have that working already. The webcam audio and video both communicate with your computer via your webcam's software application. Due to this, you will find that there are settings specific to your webcam software for sound. Because there are various software applications that can act as an interface for your webcam, you will want to do a product-specific search on the Internet for your application's settings. Most often you will find the settings for sounds under Tools or Settings, then choosing Options or Preferences. Regardless of the application that you are using to broadcast your webcam video, you will need to ensure that your microphone is plugged into the "Microphone In" jack on your computer or laptop. The microphone input jack is commonly colored pink. b> Microphone Connection b> With your microphone plugged into the "Microphone In" audio jack, test the audio inside your webcam's software application. Most webcam applications allow you test your microphone by reading a sentence and watching a graph move as you speak. If you see this happening, then you have correctly hooked up your microphone. If you have a Windows PC you should also see if your computer recognizes your microphone by clicking on "Start" > "Settings" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the "Audio" tab you will find a section for "Sound Recording." From there you can select or change your "Default Device." b> Hardware Troubleshooting b> In the event that your microphone is not recognized by your computer, continue hardware troubleshooting by contacting your computer's support staff. With a properly connected microphone and some minor adjustments in your webcam's software application, you should be broadcasting audio with your video in no time. Hope this helps.

How do i get sound on my hp pro webcam


Check it exists in Control panel / Sounds,speech etc / Sounds and audio sounds / voice.

If you see anything greyed out then uninstall webcam / re-install driver, Do NOT plug webcam in until driver is loaded.

If you do see the driver listed, ensure you have selected "webcam" for voice recording.

Playback is usually thru your PC speakers.

How do i get my asus k50 webcamera to produce sound?


webcams dont have mics...the mics are built into the bezel around the screen and are controlled by the sound drivers. You have to use the webcam software to link the sound drivers to your webcam software so the two work together when you are on video messaging. Check into the webcam software documentation. I know that when I was setting up my webcam in Gmail, it was linked to the sound drivers automatically.

as a workaround you can use the headset, you just need to configure your messenger again to use the sound from the mic input instead from the webcam.
