I was using Microsoft life cam as my webcam and microphone whenever I make video calls in Skype. I dropped the webcam a couple of times and I noticed that the microphone quality became really terrible. I just bought a generic mic and I want to use it now together with the life cam. How can I switch the microphone?
I already plugged the mic but it is still not working.
Can anyone help me out?
Change microphone and use same webcam
Your webcam comes with a built in microphone set and if you don’t want to use the microphone which goes with your webcam, then, just plug in your generic microphone in its “red marked” slot and open up your Realtek high definition audio driver software. You will notice the microphone panel (red) and see options whether you want to use the back panel or front panel. You have to select the microphone you want to use.
If you have put the camera on the back panel and the new generic microphone on the front panel then, just select the front panel as your default audio recording device and you are done.
