I've just recently got into this recording stuff and I found my webcam so I decided to record with it. Trouble is, when I record with my cam, the sound quality is shockingly bad. This never happens when I record with just my mic, is there a way of increasing quality?
webcams are not made to record audio and so that is why its bad.
they are made for text chat.

buy a toneport and if you want to make a video, use the web cam to record video and Audacity/toneport to record the audio.

sync the two in windows movie maker
