I'll do that. But the problem is partly solved. I am now using a
better type of web-cam with a good inbuilt microphone. That works
fairly good. A little bit of noise, but I am not using hardware of
$ 1.000,-, so that is to be expected. But the strange thing is that in
the past the microphone worked good.
