Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam
I have installed a Logitech Webcam Pro 5000 to my PC. The PC is about 4-5 yrs old and is running off XP.
The installation is fine and the video feed on the webcam works fine. However, there seems to be serious distortion on the sound (like a high pitched squeeling). I can hear the other party fine, but my voice comes out as a high pitched squealing on the other end.
I tried to test the microphone on sound recorder and on playback, the same squealing can be heard. On closer inspection, i noticed that when recording, the timer was running prob 2x - 3x slower than normal speed (i.e. one second on the recorder timer would take 3 seconds) and that playback was at normal speed (1 for 1). Hence i think the computer audio is running to slow when recording (on sound recorder) or when using the webcam.
I also tried by using a headset mic on sound recorder and that seemed to work ok. But i have not been able to test the headset on alive webcam chat as yet.
Can you help? Is this a sound card issue or a webcam issue? Is it a conflict between the existing sound card and the webcam drivers (i doubt , as even when recording on sound recorder, this issue occurs).
Any advice or help please?
