Using CamStudio with 64 bit Windows 10, intel i5 processor
Hi All Interested Parties
I have been trying to record my organ eplayOrgan using CamStudio for upload to Youtube to be viewed primarily on my website https://midimusic.github.io
look for eplayOrgan.
Unfortunately I have not had much luck - the main problem originally was getting the sound recorded along with the screen. I normally use line in for recording sound but CamStudio will not accept this -- so I solved it by connecting line out to mic in with a short cable, I reduced mic gain to 0db and all apparently worked OK. However I soon found that I was getting only 4 frames per second which is nowhere near enough for recording an organ.
At this point I gave up on CamStudio and tried the screen recorder built into Windows 10 accessed by typing Win G -- this was successful and I recorded four videos and uploaded them to Youtube. These videos can now be viewed on my website or directly on youtube (search for david csw900).
I then had an email from Terry who sent a very long and useful set of helpful suggestions for improving CamStudio's performance. Unfortunately I was unable to install a 32 bit version of xVid in my 64 bit PC and X264vfw installed a 32 bit codec but gave error messages when CamStudio tried to use it.
Since then I installed ezVid which would work at a high enough frame rate but it turns off sound output when it is recording the screen -- OK to prevent feedback when recording from a microphone but useless for recording an organ. I need to keep the sound output on (use Advanced settings and select headphone output does this) and mix it with a microphone. So far I have not had much success with this because it is too complicated to keep on inputting these settings. This program also has an extremely annoying feature of almost insisting you add its built in music to any recording you make.
Terry has strongly recommended I install Voicemeeter which I have now done. It is very complicated even for me, who has been working with audio for almost a lifetime. So this is where I am now.
I do not think CamStudio is up to the tasks I have to do, ezVid has useability problems any annoyances so any suggestions would be appreciated.
