I'm having some major problems getting camstudio to record audio from my PC or desktop like if I was playing music from a game or something.
I have windows 7 home premium. I have a realtek HD audio soundcard. I did try the right clicking the sound panel and went to the "recording" and checked for disconnected and disabled devices. I made sure realtek was my default device. For the stereomix properties, I clicked on the "listen" tab and tried to find "speakers" so the playback can go through there but speakers isn't listed. The only devices I have listed are microphone, speakers, headphone and line-in. Everything is plugged in except mic and the line-in I don't have a cam or microphone. Oh, speakers are also not plugged in because I use a headphone. So the only way I listen to sound is through my headphone.
I went to "record audio from speakers." Of course, I got the error, "waveoutgetsselectedcontrol() failed" message. I ignored that and just went to audio options then the options for the speakers. I selected "Stereomix" and went to try and record a sound from my computer. Nothing. My sound is working and everything but the mic, line-in and speakers are plugged in. I thought you didn't need a mic or speaker? I use a sound recorder for now and it's able to pick up sound just fine so I figured it's a camstudio issue and not my sound settings. I tried to search both manually and automatically the sounds but if I tried automatically, it'd give me that error message I mentioned earlier. If I tried manually, it said something about the soundcard not matching with the recording line or something like that. I had to restore my system and that got rid of camstudio so I'm posting based on what I remembered. The recording line couldn't be found and it's been grayed out anyway.
I've done everything I could that I could think of and the things they've done on Youtube and while it worked for most people, it didn't for me. I had to restore my system twice because I was messing around with the sound panel and couldn't get it back. So that meant my anti-virus program stopped working every time I restored so I had to redownload my anti-virus program after both restores. I am hoping that I can find a solution without having to mess around with the sound panel again and just with camstudio. This has been very frustrating and I have no idea what is going on.
Here's a couple of screenshots of what things looked like when trying to get camstudio to pick up sounds from my desktop when messing with my sound settings.
PS: Oh, and I am running camstudio with windows xp service pack 2 compatibility mode and everything was fine when I used to have windows xp service pack 2. I hope we can come up with a solution because I feel like I tried everything. This problem is so weird!
