I have the Logitech C910 webcam. It includes audio and a built-in mic. In other words, all you need is the webcam to conduct a video call. My problem is twofold. First, I don't want people in the room to hear what the person on the other end is saying. Thus, I need a headset. Two, sometimes I want to talk in the headset's mic so that I can talk more softly and still have the person on the other end hear me.
Obviously, I need a headset with a mic. But how do I use such a headset in conjunction with my webcam. That is, how do I stop the sound that comes from the webcam's speakers from coming out of the same? I want the sound to come through the headset only. Likewise, how do I stop the sound from entering into the webcam's mic.
AS for the webcam's mic, I think I can use the Logitech software to mute the mic. Assuming this works, I still see no way of stopping the sound from coming through the webcam's speakers.
Thank you for your assistance.
The C910 does have a mic (two actually) but it doesn't have any speakers.
To get Skype to use your headset mic instead of the 910's, in Skype click on Tools > Options > Audio settings. Click on the down arrow next to the Microphone window. Do you see your headset mic showing there? If so, select it and click the Save button.
For incoming sound, if plugging in your headset doesn't mute your speakers, on that same Audio settings page click on the pull down for Speakers and look for a setting related to your headset.
