Microsoft New Webcam - poor sound

  fpg 13:12 28 Aug 2006

I have just installed the MS LifeCam VX-3000 Webcam.
The image quality is poor on default but improves with software ajustments to good VGA standard.
BUT the sound is awful - the inbuilt mic volume has to be set near maximum - very hissy with echo.
Can a headset be used with a webcam that has an installed microphone?

In your webcam's Properties ensure that your main sound device i.e sound card, onboard sound or whatever is the Default source.
