The video playback on my IXUS 50 camera works fine, but despite re-installing my software several times the video playback has no sound on my computer, whereas with my last camera the video playback worked fine (sound and all). Every video file is shadowed by a THM file. How do I sort this out?

Taking a movie will ALWAYS record sound regardless. When playback the video, have you raised the volume? Press the up button a couple of times and you will see a volume thing get more yellow digital lights.
I'm not sure what the solution is, but I am having the same probelms, and I would appreciate any help with this since I am shooting a childrens camp and I am fairly isolated and don't have the time to swop cameras or send it to get fixed. I need to know if the recording is fine (video and audio) but the playback is not working correctly...or is it not recording correctly or playing back correctly. The sound cuts out from time to time in playback. Thank you.
Oh my, sounds like you accidentally recorded in "Time Lapse" mode (one of the specialized video features of your camera). Unfortunately, there's no way to convert the already taken video back to "Standard" video with sound, I'm sorry. However, you'll obviously need to set your camera back to standard mode for future videos. Press the "Function" button while in video mode. Then press left/right to select "Standard" video.
It may be able to be used that way (but its pretty iffy)...you would have to have to have a computer with an RCA-type video in jack (or an installed TV tuner card with the same RCA-type video in jack).
And if you have that setup on your computer, then you could use the AV cable that is supplied with this camera to send video out (either what is being shown on the screen in shooting mode, or already taken pictures/videos in playback mode) to your PC.
You would then need to point whatever software you are using to broadcast your webcam stream to the "video in" jack as the source of your webcam video (if it even allows for that option).
If you can do all that, it MIGHT be possible, but its probably a pretty long shot.
This is because of low light and low frame rates in the camera. It records the sound on time but the picture delays. In the camera's video menu, choose a higher frame rate to help this a little. Honestly though, If you want to shoot better video get a video camera.
