I learned the hard way that a good audio mic is extremely important
I first used ‘eyeball’ http://www.bluemic.com/snowflake and still use it sometimes if the interview is only two people.
I now use Zoom H2. It will pickup a group of people without a problem and has a visible audio meter. http://www.amazon.com/Zoom-H2-Portable-Stereo-Recorder/dp/B000VBH2IG
The webcam I am using right now is Logitech® Webcam Pro 9000

I will upgrade to Logitech® HD Pro Webcam C910 when it’s available this August

I have Vidblaster home version http://vidblaster.com/ but still have not been able to get it to work right. I see the potential, but their customer service is horrible and I cannot get questions answered
Without a good mic you're dead in the water
