I have a logitech webcam 120 without microphone. I have a desktop microphone that works in Skype and when trying to set it up from sounds in the control panel it also works. But I can't get it to work with my camera which is a pain as I'm trying to make a short video to send to my sister. A

Any ideas what's wrong? or a free alternative that will let me capture and save videos from my camera :thanks

Probably off the wall, but does you video have a standard USB connector? I recently purchased a USB microphone/headset stick on Trademe for about $12.50 inc freight because of a problem with my sound card, and it is working reasonably well. (A small problem that is related to one compuuter, not the USB stick).

The Stick came from a supplier (i.e. not second hand), so If you want to try one, I can PM the email address of the supplier.

Or you could try Guvcview to record. It allows selection of a separate mic.

This appears to be for Linux?

Have you tried Yawcam (http://www.yawcam.com/index.php) - should do the trick.

Yawcam is what you want, you just gotta put up with the shoddy interface
