disabling a microphone


Recommended Posts

I have a logitech quick camera with intergrated microphone.

Now I have worked out how to watch telly on my PC (stops arguments) I wanted to record a prog as well. No problem, but can hear ourselves over the sound track. What simple click thing can I do to disable the mic until prog is finished?

Or am I choosing the wrong audio sorce when recording?

I've got one of the Logitech Quick-cams. Since it's USB, muting the microphone in the Master volume controls wont work. To kill the mike you need to go to Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and click the "Audio" tab. Under "Sound recording" click Volume. When the "Capture" window pops up, check the "Mute all" box.

Thanks Sniper, it works exactly as you said . I never thought to mention that it was USB.  :hello:


I have all my USB ports in the back of my computer filled so I plug the cam in a front port to use it and yank it out when I'm not using it. About the only time I used the thing was when my nephew was in Iraq.
