Logitech Webcam Microphone not working

Hello. The Camera on my webcam is working, but the microphone wont show up in my stereo mix, meaning I can't talk to anyone or record sound with it. It works in the "Test Microphone" option, and the green bar moves when you look at the "Recording Devices"(I'm using Windows Vista) but the rest of the computer wont recognize it.

Why cant i hear anything when i recored a video


1. Maybe your sound is off...
2. Bad speakers?
3. If you recorded, do you have a microphone?
4. Check your sound. Right click the sound icon in your taskbar and select recording devices. See if stereo mix is your default. What stereo mix does is record sound from your computer, not your microphone. Instead, set your microphone as the default recording device and try recording again.
5. If you are still clueless, and this is not working, you might have software issues, and need help from your OS provider.

How do I set up creative cam for singsnap..karokee site..its like its running too many cams.and won't let me use the wizard to set up the sing site..even..its very frustrating..but when I plug in my old...


SingSnap Voice and video Setup
SingSnap is a free site boasting an extensive song list with a wide range of styles and time periods available.
(There's plenty of Def Leppard!) Don't be fooled by what's available to view - the site lets you use three kinds of
web cams. It seems few folks use them though, but who knows why. There's a configuration wizard process for audio,
video, and Internet settings, making it a real, well, snap to set up. The site lets you tweak your video look, and
turn on or off ratings, comments, duets, and embeds. There's a pay option of $7 a month that removes advertising and
gives you an expanded song selection.

Copy this web site and paste it in your browser and HIT ENTER:

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/singandrecord/intro

CLICK on this: Run the SingSnap setup wizard...

Then you will find the SINGSNSP WIZARD, follow the instructions and it should work with both Video & Audio.
At the bottom of the WIZARD click on PROCEED.

Hope this helps. Bud

HERE IS THE FAQ SECTION WHICH MAY ALSO BE OF HELP TO YOU>

Copy this site to your web browser address bar

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/help/faq

for additional Frequeuently Asked Questions (FAQ) I inserted a few below to help you.

#1 Can I improve the video quality on my recordings?

Make sure you have nice, bright lighting for recording video. Also, you can try running the Setup Wizard again.


#2 Can you help me find "Stereo Mix" / "What U Hear" on my sound card?

Sure, click "Start" -> "Control Panel" -> "Sounds and Audio Devices" -> "Audio" -> Click the "Volume" button under "Sound recording" -> "Options" -> "Properties" -> make sure everything is checked -> click "OK".

You should now see the "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" line if it's supported by your sound card.


#3 Can I use a USB microphone to record?

Yes, you can. When you record with SingSnap you have the option to "Enable Music" in the preview step of the recording process. When "Enable Music" is checked the voice track from your USB microphone will be mixed in with the music track.


#4 How should my sound card be configured when "Enable Music" is checked?

When "Enable Music" is checked it means the voice track from your computer will be mixed in with the music track from our server. For this reason your sound card settings should be set to record "Mic" and not "What U Hear" or "Stereo Mix" so that only your voice is recorded.

Here's a step by step guide on how to do this in Windows XP:

- Click "Start", (possibly "Settings") and "Control Panel"
- Double Click "Sound And Audio Devices"
- Click the "Audio" tab at the top
- Under "Sound Recording", click the "Volume" button (about half way down)

This brings up a new box, likely titled "Record Control" with some sliders on it. You need to look for "Mic", "Microphone" or "Input". If you don't see this, look for something that is similar or means the same thing. If you still don't see anything:

- Click "Options" (in the menu at the top of this window)
- Click "Properties"
- In the white box, check "Microphone" or anything similar
- Click OK

Now try to select the microphone (or whatever it is called on your machine).

If you are using a Webcam or USB microphone or mixer, you don't need to do any of this. Just run the wizard and select your webcam or USB mic from there.

Hope this is of some help to you. Bud

The mic does not record stereo anymore. when playing back a stereo works fine but when recording in stereomodus only the left channel records, the right channel seems to record silence/noise


This Mic is not a stereo Mic. If you're using a windows computer, check your sound control panel to see if the mic wasn't suddenly set to two channel device.

I inadvertently deleted the Line-In Realtek High Definition Audio


Simply re-install the software and all your original data will be restored. If you purchased a downloaded version, go to the site from which your purchased it and request your keycode again, and permission to re-download. Then burn the text file with the keycode and the downloaded installer onto a CD so you won't lose it again. Another solution is to get Nero.

Why isn't the microphone on my camera working?
trnsp.gif Answer The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.

Webbcam works but no sound or microphone


First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.

Good luck...
