I am using Windows Live Messenger and a Logitech webcam to make a voice and video calls to family elsewhere. Although the webcam side works fine inevitably one end does not have sound and the mic does not transmit. It can happen at either end and there seems no easy solution. All the hardware has been tested at each end and my PC says its sound sytems are OK. Same at the other end! Any suggestions?.. Both ends are using Windows XP/broadband link. Does one have to connect with voice first and then try and bring in sound? I am baffled!
Thanks both. Interestingly when first setting up the system it worked fairly well with some mic distortion. Seems it may be a Messenger problem--not enough bandwidth in the system?However now the problem is worse. I have loaded Skype and will 'convince' the other end to do likewise.
