Ok guys I need your help. seeing as you guys are using web cams

I just bought a webcam so I can do some web video lessons with John Hi John again.

The problem is when I enable the microphone part of my sound card a SB 5in1 so I can record the sound to the PC via the built in cam speaker I get major feed back when I try to increase the speaker volume level in the application. When it's turned down to prevent the feedback the sound is very hard to hear and scratch i.e broken hard to make anything out.

The cam is a usb one 5 something mega pixels with a lead that plugs into the microphone area of the sound card I'm assuming. I don't know if this is an issue with the cam or if i'm doing something wrong.

All advice is welcome apart from jumping up and down on the cam.

BTW the Video playback is good no problems.

Regards SAD being very SAD![:(][:(][:(][:(][:(] Thats how SAD. I want to be HAPPY [:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D] That happy.

I used the less technical method of putting the camera right on top of my amp and just recording with the built in speaker.  But the playing came out well enough in my videos...nothing great, but it gets the point across.

Maybe I don't understand your setup correctly, if so just ignore this, but if you're using a a mic in close proximity to your computer speakers, you're gonna' get feedback and the best way to avoid this is to monitor your recording with headphones.

Forgive me Sad, if I totally misunderstood what you're saying! [:)]

No probs.

I know what your on about but even when I move the cam as far away from the puter and other speakers i'm still getting the feedback, TYhats what I can't understand. It could be a duff cam??? it came of ebay ( no jokes please )most stuff of ebay i've had is great.

I'm trying to eliminat possible issues to see if I can get to the root problem.
