I have the Logitech Pro 9000 and experienced the same jerky motion of which you speak.

After doing some online research, I trashed the accompanying software and went strictly with Windows Movie Maker. (XP) It seems the bells and whistles of Logitech's software were a detriment to its performance - at least on my machine.

I haven't tried web camming with anyone, so don't know how it operates there, but it seems that generic software is the key.

Good luck.

You can use any webcam you like with any computer you like. I use a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX. It's quite good, the video (if viewed locally) doesn't lag, but it will over the internet; that's the nature of the beast. But the audio is fine. You can find one for about $40-50. There's also one model above and one model below. I've had trouble w/the model below; wouldn't install on my parents machine and I've yet to have the chance to try it on mine. But you can't really go wrong with Logitech. Just about everything they make is good.

Welcome to FixYa

Dear User,

Load the installation CD in computer. Choose your language, accept the licensing agreement and follow other on-screen prompts.

Connect the Logitech webcam's USB cable to your computer. A few minutes may pass while your computer detects its new hardware. A screen should then appear with an image from the newly installed Logitech webcam.

Follow on-screen prompts as the installation program performs an audio configuration.

Restart the computer and start enjoying your Logitech webcam.

Hope you got it.Dont forget to Rate[Let me Know if you need further assistance]..Thanks for Connecting FixYa...

Sound delay in our webcams when we try to sing together.


The speed of light and the speed of sound just don't mix well on a webcams. There is a process delay with these cameras. The only remedy I know of is to get a webcam with greater memory capacity. Say, a 3.1meg webcam. The logitech only has 300K of memory and has a slower response time. Recording with a low res window helps too. 160x120 verses 320x240. This helps with less response delay time between cams. Also, using an external mic helps too. You'll need to tweek the distince between the mic and the webcam to sinc the video and sound. Let me know if I can be of further assistence with this. I'll try to help you resolve this.
