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

How can u help me fix my mic for my laptop cam working good


If the internal laptop microphone is not working properly, you have a driver problem (as there is no connection issue and the laptop is automatically set to use the built-in microphone). To correct the problem you need to reinstall the laptop's mic driver.

People can't hear me on the web cam when talking to them but i can hear them


Make sure that you plug in the Mic jack properly and it's working, you can test it using built-in sound recorder if you don't have any audio editor software. Try with different mic and see which one is the problem. Also your mic socket (onboard or ad-ons card) maybe the problem, so troubleshoot thoroughly and slowly. Good luck..

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.

Audio on Dell Webcam Central And voice record isn't working


I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.

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.
