I just bought the life cam cinema which has pretty good video for a webcam but the microphone is not that great. I bought the Rode Podcaster to use for podcasting and videos. Can I set up the Life cam to only use my Rode Podcaster microphone instead of the internal one on the life cam? thx.

I think yes, but this option is configured in the O.S.
I have the Rode Podcaster mic setup as my defualt in my system but still cannot use it. I know on the older versions of the camera you could select in the software which mic to use but in this newest camera you cannot. From what I can tell you are not able to use an external mic. Do you know of any other softward work arounds?
