Hello...I have installed Skype and I also wanted to chat with my friends on msn. I have installed a webcam (Creative) which works fine, but my ear phones which come with it, does not allow me to hear anything. Whenever I telephoned a skype number, the error notice pop up saying there is a problem with the "playback" device. My friends can hear me but I can't hear them....could you guide me through my system please so that I can check I have clicked or unclicked whatever needs to be...many thanks....Nigel.

It happened to me too. But I use Linux, so the settings are not the same. It was the sound settings that were by default set to mute. Go to the control panel and select Sounds (and peripherique???). You will find some settings there.

Simply download a program that supports video chat. A popular program is skype. Once you install the software, it will find your web cam for you and do all of the hardwork.

I've a camera creative model.no. vfo470 i'm searching driver about linux.. are there? thanks


If you are using Ubuntu, and you want the camera to work on skype copy and paste the command to the terminal and enter. Then type your password and enter. This will open the skype and you will have webcam. Check the video in the options.

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

Otherwise, you can install the program GYachE. This chat software gives excellent results while using the webcam. No need to search for any drivers. Only draw back is, this one do not provide the voice chat (outside of chat rooms) Webcam will be there and you will have to type to communicate. However the other person can talk. You can listen to them talking.

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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.


  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

  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: Your audio and video should 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

Vista window would not take my Creative lab webcam's driver


I had the same problem with the vf-0050 on a win vista x32 PC. I Downloaded the latest XP driver from creative and installed it. THe camera works fine with MSN messenger and skype. I'll have to wait and see if it works with x64 as well.
Hope this works for you.
