Recently I purchased a Logitech HD webcam Pro 9000. I installed it as per instructions but when I first used with Skype (BTW, I only use Skype for internet telephoning), the webcam microphone wasn't immediately functioning. I had to go into Skype and switch from the, I think, laptop microphone setting(if my laptop even has one) to the microphone built into the webcam. The switch seemed to work fine. However, today when we received a phone call on Skype, the person calling could see us but couldn't hear us but we could see and hear him clearly. When I immediately checked the audio settings in Skype, in the drop-down menu for audio settings for selecting the appropriate microphone, there was only one microphone to select but it wasn't my webcam microphone. The microphone in my brand-new Logitech webcam wasn't even listed therefore I couldn't select to turn it on. Basically, how can I make sure that my webcam microphone is always the default microphone whenever I use Skype? My OS is Vista Basic and any information given is greatly appreciated.
In tools>Options>Video settings make sure that Video is working, then click on Save at bottom of window.
Next go to Tools>Options again and click on Audio Settings, make sure that Logitech Mic (Pro 9000) is shown, use drop-down arrow if necessary, talk or make a noise to ensure that Volume indicator is working. Tick box for Automatically adjust microphone settings. Click on Save at bottom of window.
