Headsets and Video Calls

Q: Headsets and Video Calls

Like many people, I have been using Zoom a lot recently I use Zoom on my Lenovo IdeaPad and I connect a bluetooth headset because I find the built in microphone is not really loud enough. However, every 15 minutes or so, I get an alert that my speaker is not working. At that point I need to turn off my headphones and turn them back on. When I do that, the entire Zoom will freeze. Does anyone know of a way I can fix this?

I have a IdeaPad S340-15IWL. I have been using a LG bluetooth collar.
I also used JBL Endurance Sprint - and the same thing happened.
Today I tried Anker SoundBuds Slim - these had the same issue.
Then Anker SoundBuds had another problem - they work, but when they are connected to my computer, I cannot hear anything through them. I know they work because when I connected it to a phone I was able to hear.

Hi all,

I been using Skype for a long time now, but have only recently started using the video call feature. I find it quite useful. The problem is that the video freezes after a minute or two when I make video calls. I then have to restart to unfreeze it. I can be a hassle. The video freezes on both sides of the video call. One minute my video would freeze then the other side freezes as well. The audio is fine. There is nothing wrong with my webcam.

I have a Microsoft Lifecam VX 1000. Windows XP Professional. Service Pack 3.
I have version 4.1.0.141 of Skype

How can I make video calls that don't freeze?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Frozen Video Calls in Skype

My experience has been that if I have too many extra's turned on the camera, it might freeze. I have a Logitech cam, and it has a feature called Low-light boost that sometimes has given me problems. (also accessed through Skype at Tools>Options>Video Settings. Then click on the button that says Webcam settings>Advanced Tab).

Other possibilities:
*Double check your camera driver for the latest version.
*Bad internet connection (double check firewalls, anti-virus etc.)
*Make sure you have the latest version of DirectX
*Make sure the camera application software is running at the same time as Skype.

Good luck, hope this helps.

Hi all

just when I decided to invest in a smart TV and looking forward to using Skype to video call - Microsoft in its wisdom has decided to pull the support for the app and quick as a flash Samsung - the maker of the TV I was going to buy say it will no longer be available on their new smart tvs from June this year (2016). So now I'm totally confused as to what is a next best option to do video calls on a TV.

I know there will be other options and ways round this but I want the next best quality option without too much fuss when I want to use it. Would it be better to go back to HD and link the TV to a pc either via cable or wirelessly - can I use Chrome cast. Whatever I do it needs to be easy to use on a daily basis - I want to use this to teach online. In particular, does anyone have experience of using Google talk on a TV ??? please share
I realise I may have to get another monitor for my pc now to make this happen but I want to persevere with having a TV option too. ANY help and advice welcome but please use plain speak in any replies, thanks in advance.

Everytime I use Skype or Google Hangouts my computer completely crashes during the call at some point. It can be 10 minutes in or 40 minutes in. I have reinstalled Skype. I have reinstalled my audio drivers as I thought it might be Conexon Smart Audio causing the crash (I have an ASUS K501U).

Recently I made some changes to speed up my CPU, I increased the quad cores (which I have subsequently decreased again) deleted my temporary files and deleted some unwanted applications. I also disabled start-up on some applications.

Since this point I have been experiencing problems. Can somebody please help! Thanks.

I have a HP Pavillon dv6000 with an intergrated webcam, and it comes pre-installed with Cyberlink Youcam software (and in case u ask, yes I do have the latest update of it). Im using Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and Service Pack 1.

Video calls with people who do not have Windows live messenger 2009 (or any of the beta versions) is perfectly fine and show is sending and viewing each others webcam. With WLM09 users, I can send and view my contacts' webcam just fine like always.

However since I installed the new messenger I cannot video call other contacts with the new messenger. The second I click the Video tab to start a call, my messenger freezes, and the same happens if I accept their call.

I found one way of going around it, under audio and video set up if I do not set the CyberLink Web Camera Filter as the webcam I want to use, i.e. I select the default Simplo Webcam, which is the webcam with no software, it works! The only problem is the video quality is TERRIBLE and dark when I choose Simplo Webcam for some strange reason. I have always used CyberLink in all my previous versions of messenger and it worked fine. All the advanced webcam settings, brightness contrast blah blah blah, are the same so I dont know why the video quality is so poor..

In the preview in audio and video set up the video is very clear and crisp either way. Thats about all the information I know.

I'm trying to use the latest version on Windows Live Messenger Version 2009 (Build 14.0.8089.726) to make video calls. I have a working webcam and microphone setup already. The problem is that the option to start a video call is faded out, therefore meaning I can't click on it. All the different ways to start a video call are faded out, which means I can't click on it. All the setting under "Tools" -> "Set Up Audio and Video" are correct. I am running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3.

Hello and thank you for viewing this post.

So here's what I need to happen; I require two usb headsets to both function on one PC. I need the sound to be delivered to each individual headset and the microphone from each individual headset to be picked up by the pc.

I connected both USB headsets to the computer. They are both listed within Control Panel > Sound. I opened voice recorder and both mics recorded successfully. I played back my recording, but it would only come through on the default headset. Switch the default headset and the play back would switch as well. Both headsets would test just fine without having to change the defaults.

So is there a way in Windows to deliver the output to both headsets? Or perhaps within Media Player to play to both default and secondary headsets?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Problem with all USB Headsets

Are you connecting through USB or the audio/mic jacks?

The best idea when trying to test a headset is to use the sound recorder.

To access this you go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Sound Recorder

Click record and speak ito the mic. Click play to play it back. If it works, then you have a software problem. If not, then it's a hardware/driver problem

I've tried using another USB headset and had the same problem. Then I tried an old G230 with 3.5mm cables and the mic worked. However, the person I'm talking to on Skype says my mic keeps cutting out and they can hear sounds coming from my headset. (Might be a whole other problem. It seems like it'll mute every time I'm playing something loud on my computer.)

Hey all,

I recently began playing some online games (left 4 dead, etc) and now want to upgrade my analog headphones and separate analog mic to a Headset / Mic combo. I am using Vista32 Home Premium

From what I hear, USB is the way to go for audio quality as wel as the fact that the headset is treated as a separate sound card - which opens up some additional configuration options (assignment, etc) if desired.

Now, my question is, is every USB headset treated as a separate sound card? When people say this, will it actually show up as a sound card? Or will it just be recognized in device manager as headphones?

How are the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 (HERE) ?

This ABS AZ1 (HERE) seem like a good deal as well...

I want something that is decent for gaming as well as music....

I would like to choose a decent (covering the ear) set for around $30 online. Any suggestions?

Also, are the analog sets that have the usb adapter the same as a 'native' usb Headset?

Thanks in advance,

Matt!

Would upgrading to the Tactic 3D sigma which sports 50mm instead of 40mm driver units make any difference? I play a lot of CoD, L4D2, Crysis and pretty much any FPS game. But I also use them for listening to music on my smartphone/ipod and they're a tad quiet. I'm willing to pay for the Sigma's but what would the improvements be over the 40mm version.

Hello everyone, lately I've been receiving issues with the audio coming out of the wrong place when im using my new headphones. I'm not sure if it could be a problem with skype because it only happens when im on a call with somebody.

So every time im in a call with someone on skype, the audio from the call stays in my headsets just fine and usual but everything else starts coming out from my speakers. This is especially annoying because my headsets are noise cancelling and i cannot hear the audio properly from the speakers anymore.

Also the headsets i am currently using are SteelSeries Siberia V2

A:Audio comes out of both headsets and speakers

Hi Electros,

Skype has it's own Audio section in the settings iirc, open Skype, find the audio settings and in there you can chose from a drop down menu which device you want for playback and mic.

Hi,

Looking to get a headset for gaming around christmas. My inital search revealed the hyper x cloud 2, which seemed great for the price. However i have read about some people having issues with both the software and the durability of the headphones themselves.

My budget can go to around $200 AUD (an example in the upper part of this price range would be the sennheiser game one) give or take, its not set in stone. I am mainly looking for great audio quality, the mic is less important but still needs to be decent. For features i dont really know what im looking for other than some sort of surround sound (virtual/simulated or not).


And that brings me to my next question, will i need a seperate sound card? I havent really researched them and dont know if they are required. My system specs are in the usual place.

Thanks,
Michael

A:Headsets and sound cards?

USB headsets, such as the hyper x cloud 2 that you mention, do not use the PC's sound card. They are USB and take the digital audio and convert it to analog (audio) internally in the headset system.

I have kind of an amusing problem. I rescued an exotic bird that crashed into the glass of my workplace, and he has been part of the family for about 3 years. He loves to sit on my shoulder while I work on my computer. Recently he has taken a dislike to the wire coming from my headphone and microphones sets ( on 3rd pair currently). I have therefore decided to look into a set without wires. I do not know the difference between the two Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and of course sound quality is bottom line. I am looking for a pair around the $200.00 Mark give or take.

This article http://mikebeauchamp.com/misc/sennheiser-hd-555-to-hd-595-mod/ says that the $ 150.00 difference between these headphones is the maker just put a piece of foam in them to cripple the exact same innards. He further proves a point with digital cameras, The software is all identical just crippled to make a lower cost unit.

So I need some advice I don;t want to pay $150 for some foam , I just want a good headset with a microphone, To listen to videos and music I am not a gamer.

Hello. The Inspiron 7567 Setup and Specifications document calls it a "headset (headphone and microphone combo) port", but gives no actual specifications. All Dell laptops up to now have had the standard 3.5 mm jacks, so you should be safe using that as a reference. Get one from someplace that accepts returns.

Hi All

First time poster... thx in advance to any of you technical wizzards who might be able to help.

Just wondering if it is at all possible to have audio channelled through 2 usb ports on the same PC listening to the same audio. Unfortunately the headsets are different manufacturers. I dont know if that is relevant but i thought i would mention it.

I would love to be able to listen to music with my son at the same time while my little girl watches movies on my laptop... lol... You can see my dilemma?

I'd be extremely grateful to anyone who can help...

Windows XP Pro... C-Media Headset and Logitech Headset... both on USB... and i will download any media player the helps if anyone has a suggestion.

Thanks everyone.

If I buy a wireless Bluetooth USB dongle to connect my headset to my computer. Can I use it for Battlefield 2 to talk to other people in my squad?
