Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam

Delay in Video image after video recorded is replayed

Hi . I just bought a new microsoft lifecam vx-1000. I m not sure if it is a setting problem or not. Perhaps someone can let me know if it is.

So far, I have no problems installing the software or detecting the web cam.

My issue is when I record the video. Firstly, I would hear the audio first when I replayed the video which I just recorded. Secondly, when the audio is playing, there is a still image with a pinkish background. There seems to be a lag between the image and the sound.

I would appreciate it if someone could let me know the cause of this. If not, I would go back to the shop that sold me this webcam for more details.

How can i install my web cam?


Hi,If you don't have CD for installation, Use the below link to download it.

(microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE)

Set Up and Use the VX-3000 personal web camera
  • 1 Install the software using the included CD and plug the LifeCam into a free USB port. For desktop use, place the LifeCam on a clear spot on your desk that's free of other objects, including cables. The camera should not be more than an arm's length away from you. For LCD (or similar object) use, push the center part of the camera's base upward, place the camera on the LCD and close the base around the monitor to secure it.
  • 2 Open the device software by clicking the Microsoft LifeCam icon on your Windows desktop. If no such icon exists on your Windows desktop, click "Start," click "All Programs" and locate the Microsoft LifeCam program in the list of programs there. After launching the LifeCam program, look at the image that appears. If necessary, adjust the camera to more precisely reflect your appearance. For best results, try to center the camera image on your head and shoulders.
  • 3 Click the video camera icon on the bottom panel of the LifeCam program to begin video capture. Video will begin recording, and you will see a "Recording Video" message beneath the live video image. To stop recording, press the same icon (the icon will have a red square with a blue background during recording).
  • 4 To begin audio capture, click the microphone icon on the bottom panel. To stop the audio recording, click the same icon (again, it will have a red square with a blue background during recording). To snap a photo, click the camera icon on the bottom panel.
  • 5 Access any of your captured video, audio or image files by clicking the folder on the bottom panel. The VX-3000 also provides the ability to edit video or image files using supported software. After snapping a photo or capturing video, click the "Edit" icon that appears beneath the thumbnail of the captured content.
