CONFIGURE TO MSN

Re-boot the webcam by unplugging and plugging it back in again - Its always good practice to do this before you open MSN. If you have been using your webcam in another program, it can remain hooked up to the old program and you will get an error message " Unable to find webcam or being used elsewhere"

Webcam Connected
Open MSN
Click ( > ) Open Menu >Tools > Audio & Video set-up > Set mic as default and run through audio set-up > Next > set webcam as default and adjust Webcam Settings > Finish

Audio on Webcam is distorted - seems to be recording at a slower speed and palying back at normal spped


as a workaround you can use the headset, you just need to configure your messenger again to use the sound from the mic input instead from the webcam.
