Can't hear sound in certain players?!
Hi there, I am hoping that someone has a solution to this problem 'cos it's really doing my head in!
Ok, so I am fairly new to CamStudio but so far I have set it up and having it running tickety-boo on my work PC. Initially, I had a headset with standard 3.5mm jacks for the 'phones and the mic which worked straight out of the box. I then installed CamStudio at home too but couldn't get any sound recorded with the headset. No matter what I did (and I tried for days) I couldn't get any sound to record. However, I thought this was a system problem because I couldn't even record in Windows Sound Recorder). So, I got a new pair of USB headphones; plugged them into my work PC and, hey presto, they worked straight away. I then tried them on my home PC and tried them in Sound Recorder and they worked straight away; excellent! Problem solved; or so I thought.
So I recorded a short test avi in CamStudio and played it in WMPlayer (which I had set as default player) and, jeez, there was no sound! Checked all the setting again, tried again and the same result; no sound. Now I'm thinking it must be CamStudio, so I uninstalled/ reinstalled, tried again; and there was sound. Brilliant, I thought, but when I realised that it had automatically played in CamStudio Player 2, I opened the same video in WMPlayer and NO sound. Tried all the other players I had installed and in RealPlayer there WAS sound but in QuickTime there was NO sound.
So, is it a codec issue? I uninstalled/ reinstalled CamStudio Lossless codec which I had been using and the Audio setting are set to MP3. Where am i going wrong? Any Ideas?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, folks
