I have an old MIOS 78V webcam that I use for recording genealogical interviews. The 640 x 480 video is good enough but the audio tone is low and muffled. The webcam apparently has its own microphone. I do not have an external mic connected to the laptop.


Can someone tell me:

1. Where the mic is on the webcam?

2. How to control the tone of the recorded audio?


I use a Dell D630 laptop with Linux (Mint 17) as an OS and the Cheese V3.10.2 capture software.

The playback software is "Videos" V3.10.1.

I found the small hole on the face of the camera. That is likely the microphone hole.


The laptop showed 2 audio input sources - the camera and the internal mic. I didn't see any tone adjustments for either device. Both were on. I disabled the internal mic, but of course, that didn't change the tone on the camera mic.

Right click on the speaker icon on the lower right hand side of the tool bar and select recording devices thta should have what you need to adjust the mic
