Question about Labtec Webcam Pro

Web cam is causing interference.

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.

    My Webcam worked fine for yers until I plugged it into my new computer with XP, I ,roo, get terrible static for about 20-30 seconds every minute almost like something is cycling now somewhere...I don;t have sype but it does it on every recording attempt I make...makes my Labtec Pro Webcam totally worthles now!!! Have uninstalled every other program that records because I was getting the same problem with the Easy Screen Recorder, too. Only my Audacity will record now without any static problems...VERY ANNOYING!!! Can;t determine whether it is all being caused by the Labtec Pro webcam or is a "systemic" problem with the XP OS now!

    I have the same problem, and I do not use Skype. I use XP Pro and every time I try to make a video using Quickcam, the sound will record fine until the static comes in. It lasts for about 30 seconds.

    Can anyone help solve this?

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?

After transferring a vhs to dvd there is a motorboating sound on dvd during playback at about 10 beats per second... any ideas

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!

Download Skype for your operating system via the following

Then you need to register a new account.
Assuming you already have connected a microphone and/or a web-cam you should then be ready to add contacts and make phone calls across VOIP.

Web cams and microphone

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:
and follow these instruction to setup your voice/video.
Normal 0 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

Web cam use with skype

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.
