Send this to her.

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.

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

My skype 6.11.1 outgoing call keep droping


outbound bandwidth usually stinks. shut down anything that may be impacting that. It also gets very quirky when there are memory issues like having a bunch of browser windows open and a download going on in the background (don't forget the auto updates when you're pulling your hair out trying to find it).

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect the webcam before you start ( reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting defaults
Select the webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch the webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Incoming Skype Picture Freezes and/or Jumps


You are not the only one. I have a gorup of 6 people, on Vista, XP, with QuickCamPros and other brands and we communicate daily. We are ALL having the same problem as a result of the last Skype update.

It is NOT your system, it's Skype's issue. Do like we do and in the lower right corner of your screen you can report the quality of the call. Keep doing it over and over and maybe they'll do something about it!

Please help me


You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.

You need to configure your audio settings in Skype.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.

If you still have problems get back to me with all details and error messages.

Voice delay and low picture pixels


The problem is lack of bandwith of the receiving signal from your daughter. The Skype server is located in the UK and all video and audio data signals go to and from the Skype UK server before it goes to you and your daughter. This lack of bandwith causes the video image to break up and a delays in audio just like a weak high definition signals to your digital television.
You can see your own video and hear your own audio from your WEB cam clearly, because the video and audio data does not have to go to the UK and back again, also your satillite connection is probably not as fast as a cable broadband connection. Your daughter may also experiencing the same video and audio problems.
Video data contains a lot more information than the audio data. Therefore there are a couple of things you can do to improve the situation :-
Get your daughter to and possible you as well (if she is also experiencing break up of video and audio), to reduce the video image size from 640X480 to 320X240 resolution.
If the video is still a problem then turn off the video all together and only communicate by audio, this will reduce the amount of data being transmitted and should give you a clear/clean audio.
