I have just purchased a Trust webcam which states it has a 'Built in Microphone' (which can be seen on the face of the product), however it only has a USB lead. How can this record sound?


I don't really know but the mike only lets you to be heard by the other party, it dosn't actually "record" (same as mike on cell phone)

What causes microphone feedback on Skype


Speakers could be to close to the Mike or to volume loud. Move the mike away from the speakers or turn them facing away from the mike.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

I installed my Mini Webcam Pro HO98756 without any problem. The person I talked to saw and heard me fine, but the person could only seem me but not hear me. What may be the problem? What can I Do? Thank...


Assuming you are running Windows XP or Vista, check the sound recording settings.
In the Control Panel, select Sound and then check if the webcam is selected as the source for the sound recording. Also make sure the sound recording volume level is not set to zero (which it often is!).

If your webcam driver is properly installed and has a microphone, this should fix it.

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 (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.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Sound doesnt work


Follow the instructions hopefully this solves for you
let me know

Open AIM
then click setup
then live video
Then "Audio and Video Tuning Wizard" opens.
Click Next
Be sure to enter the right camera. If no camera shows up, your camera is not properly connected or configured.
Click Next
Here you will see a video window with your camera in action.
Click Next
Click Next
Enter the right microphone. Some cameras have a microphone built in.
Some other cameras need a separate microphone. In this case be sure that your mike is properly connected.
Select your speakers and be sure they work properly.
Next
"Click to Test Speakers"
Adjust the speaker volume as needed.
Click Next
Make a mike test and observe the volume bars moving to the right.
Adjust the mike sensitivity so you have a good meter movement when speaking normally
without peaking to yellow or red.
Click Next
Click Finish
Close the "IM Preferences" Window by clicking OK.
Close the "Instant Message" Window.
Your SETUP is complete.



On the "Buddies List" click the SCREEN NAME of a user you wish to chat with.
The "Instant Message" window opens. Here you also have a type interface and you
might check if your buddy is ready to receive your video chat invitation.
Click the Camera Icon. You are ready to chat. Your buddy still has to accept your invitation.

Sound on webcam


Hi,
it could be simply the program you are using. Try it in yahoo messenger or msn

It could be that your voice is too strong.(or to bass) Hi noise levels create cut-out voices.
So turn your microphone volume way down, and your program volume UP a little and tweak it.

It could also be the microphone thats built in to the cam. Try plugging in a separate microphone into your computer and see how that performs.

Thank you and good luck.

Gigaware PC Camera with Mike sound problem


What you need to do is when you go to the advanced settings on skype, slide the volume slider thing, then click save before you speak or do anything to make the slider move back. I just spent 2 hours fixing this bug, and it worked for me.
good luck
