Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

2 Answers

No picture when recording

Hi,
I just installed the Lifecam VX-1000 software. During the installation and the setup everything went fine, the audio and the micro part also and during the picture finetuning I saw myself on the monitor. But when I reopened the program after the setup I didn't see any picture just a black frame. When I did a recording and I played it then I saw myself. When I took a picture the result was once again a black frame. What did I do wrong? How can I make it work?

    I have the same problem. Everything fine untill the first start. If I start from My Computer menu, I can see myself and make photo, but can not make video. So I think the problem is in the software or in the driver, not in webcam.

    Is it possible, that my OS langages and the software language not the same, and it makes problem? I can not find software to my language so I use english version.

    Maybe I have a solution. My sister has an english version of windows (driver also english). And when I installed on her computer everything was fine. So my opinion is the problem was the diffeence languages between my windows and the driver. When I installed on my comp, the driver warned me that the driver is english version. Unfortunetally there's no driver written on my languages. Maybe once.

How to use Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam with Skype


well once you have the microsoft webcam software installed..
that is the first step then to go to skype and in skype it will have you set up the video and audio upon first use...
iff you have already past first use.. then when you make a call with skype as long as the software is installed then skype will automatically detect this and use it as the default recording device and it searches also for microphones automatically...
so really not much for you to do, once the microsoft webcam is installed then skype setup takes care of the rest...

Make sure you have any support software loaded that may be necessary to run your model. For example, I have Logitech and need Directx. Support software is not downloaded with the product but as a standalone item.
Check out the Microsoft support website - fill in the details of your cam and OS and move to the support page for your model.
Look for the readme link and check known issues and breaking news. Look for any information regarding additional software.

Use the disk provided with the cam first, start installation before plugging in the camera.

If you lost the disk, use this page to download driver software.

After download has finished, start software setup with camera unplugged, the software setup wizard will tell you when to plug in the camera .

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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
