When I contact my sons via skype. When using my web cam they get interference with sound causing us not to hear each other. this happens every minute or so. They do not have a problem talking to each other and if i turn off my web cam they can hear me ok. can someone help, I am a novice at this, am I doing something wrong.
Got the same -- horrible noise coming out of the speakers. I connect XP to XP, with skype on both sides. One of the sides seems fine, but the other one (which is mine), gets this noise every minute can anyone tell me why it is so?

This is very interesting. Usually it is an electric interference.
1.) Most often it comes if you use a cheap mouse. First I'd change the mouse (sounds silly, but when I was talking via Skype with a friend he said he hears the same sound you described). Try another mouse, borrow one or just disconnect after recording has started.
2.) Use GOOD cables for video AND audio. Not those thin ones. A good cable is at lest 2x shielded. They are about 4-6 mm thick.
3.) Routers can make the same interference. If your router is within half a meter near to you PC, it can cause the same problem. Move your router at least 2 m away from your digitizing device.
Hope I could help!
if the web cam is bult into the laptop/pc it will have a program to use it, or it will start atomaticly on a program like skype or msn. If it is a web cam you plug in via usb port it will start up when you press video call on msn skype or eney program that uses web cames
Hi, First I would suggest you get a Microsoft Life Cam VX-3000 as it will install the easiest and has a mic built in. Then I would suggest you and your family download SKYPE as it is FREE to talk on using the computer. It allows oyou to connect with several family members. Only have to pay if you telephone anyone from the computer using Skype. So download SKYPE from this site: http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/windows/beta/ and follow these instruction to setup your voice/video.
After you install Skype and have it operational
with you ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to
"Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and
Speaker's are correctly chosen.Then
"make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to
record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to
insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and
test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up
you video camera. Also, you can Visit this site for additional
information to setup video.
Hope this helps. Bud
trying to contact family overseas via webcam (lifecam vx 3000) they can see me and themselves, but i cant see them only myself, but we can hear each other. using my web cam i can see and talk to my other computer, via cams .
When you sign in to Skype, you'll need to check your settings (the tab where you change your wallpaper, sounds, privacy, etc. You'll find an area for configuring your webcam, just follow the directions and make sure you give Skype the permission to start your webcam. You can also change the settings of your webcam to automatically respond to programs you choose. It's a great cam, I was able to talk to my husband and kids very easily from Sweden via Skype in February, the sound is very good and the pictures are not bad at all. I also can talk to my friend in Sweden, now that I'm home and it works great.
