Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

On skype i can see & hear but on the other end they cannot see or here me. i have vx-5000 web cam


Use the Calll menu to setup your audio device and then your Video device

Click Call, select audio, select your camera as the audio device since it has the mic.

Click call, select video, select your camera.

I hope this helps you resolve your Skype issue.

I can hear other people, but they can not hear me. Worked before?


go to the sound icon on the lower right of your screen and make sure the mic is not muted... you may have to look in the menu for additional controls.

No, you don't need to do anything more. That should do it. Logitech also has a webcam with a built in mic that would work for you as well.

Web cam audio problem


I totally uninstalled the software included with the webcam. I use Windows Movie Maker (included in Windows XP).

Be sure that after you plug in the cam and open Windows Movie maker that you select "Capture from video device" on the left had side. Your camera should come up in a setup window. If you are using the built in camera mic, select that in "audio device" window.

If you are using a mic connected to your PC, that option should be there, also.

In either case, after choosing the audio device, be sure the input level slider to the left is set high enough to pick up your voice.

'Hope this helped. Good luck.
