Preferred Solution: which program to use for recording

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So i'm thinking of making video clips or tutorials for games using a good software. I'd like it if its free, or considerably cheap. I've tried Fraps but the files were a little big and it slowed my computer down very low (though I still have it to record FPS). I've tried Growler Guncam and it didn't work with my computer (the "sound" and "gmp, jpg, etc" folders were hidden). I was thinking of getting Camtasia or CamStudio, but my friends said it is not good for gaming.

Hey guys, just thought I'd share this with ya!

I found a great program called MP3myMP3 (CNET Review here: MP3 My MP3 Recorder - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com) that records sounds that your PC makes.
In other words, the sound that YOU hear from it.
E.G. If you wanted to record an error sound that Windows Makes (I know that they're in C: Somewhere this is just an example) you'd just press record and then play the sound and press stop. Simple.

Okay, so I use Recordpad version 4.18 for some recording work I do with my cousin, we chose the program because it writes the sound file as it's recording (We tried Audacity before which doesn't do that, it was a pain to work with), and it also has a setting that stops the current recording and makes a new one after a set time (2 hours in our case).

Now the only problem is there's about a 1.8 second delay between the recording stopping and the new one starting up, so if we're saying something at that point it'll get partially cut off. I don't know if this is because of recordpad or because of the computer, so I thought I'd ask.

Do any versions of recordpad have a more acceptable delay between recordings, or no delay. Or would anyone be able to recommend me a sound recorder that has the same feature with a better delay?

A:Need a sound recording program suggestion

I don't use that software (I have a recording studio using Sonar X3) but I would suspect the delay is the time between the program finalizing the first recording and initializing for the next recording period.

From what I see of the program it is probably the best for your situation, since you don't like Audacity. Other recording studio programs, such as my Sonar or any other will work the same as Audacity.

Hello there!
I like to record videos for World of Warcraft Events and turning them into some nice basic videos for the attendees to watch. I use Fraps to record and Windows Movie Maker to edit (I know, shame on me).

Recently, black brackets has started to appear on the sides of my recordings, when I put them into Movie Maker, this sadly ruins the recordings for me, due to some of the effects I put on them.
I recently changed from my Laptop screen to a monitor (Medion - MD 30159) 16 units wide and 9 units tall. Very old monitor.
I have tried downloading different movie editing programs, and another recording program and nothing has removed the brackets. According to an online guide I found, then I should be able to remove them by clicking from standard to wide, in the Windows Movie Maker program, but this only moved the brackets from the top and bottom of the screen, to the sides.
Could the problem for this be that my old monitor's proportions does not fit with the recording/editing programs?
Would it help me if I got a new monitor with other proportions?
Is there any possible way that I can remove the brackets of my current recordings? As I would hate to loose them (In another editing program? Settings in windows? Anything!)
- I use Windows 10 on a Lenovo Notebook (I think)

Thank you for taking your time to read this.
 

A:Problems with recording resolution for video editing program

Depending on the software used, it will either record using the desktop resolution or give you the option to choose your own resolution. If you are getting black bars, you are not recording the desktop resolution.

For best results and clarity, you should be using the screens native resolution in Windows and your games. In this case, that appears to be 1440 x 900.

Hello. I am EpicallyAWSM.

Alright before I explain, I must tell you that I WAS able to record audio previously.

I'm having a problem while recording audio with Fraps (a game video-recording software). Previously, I was unable to find the Stereo Mix at all, until I found the Drivers CD that came with my computer.

After I installed the driver, I tested it on a few different games, but the result was still the same: no audio in my recorded files. I have double-checked, and the volume for Stereo Mix is maxed, and it is set to the default recording device. I have spent countless hours trying to find a fix for this problem, so I decided to file it in myself.

One thing though, is that I'm aware my sound card driver is a little out of date, but I am unable to update it because I get an error while running the setup file. My sound card is "Realtek High Definition Audio Card" - that's all I know about it.

I'm sure my version of Fraps is capable of recording this audio, because I was able to do so before. Suddenly though I was unable to record audio and I had a problem with sound channels in Game Maker 8 (problem I will be asking in the Game Maker forum). I am unsure what to do. Please do not give me the answers I have been seeing for the past week (Check Show All Devices, make sure your volume is maxed, etc.)

Is it O/K to use an ordinary mic, that i have to go straight into my laptop for recording singing, of course it would need an adapter as the mic has a 1/4 plug and the laptop is only 1/8. Or do you need a mic with an USB plug.thanks

A:recording

If you're not looking for much quality in the recording, straight to the laptop mic input will function. But the mic preamp will not be good, meaning background hiss levels will not be low and you mightn't be able to get enough gain (depending on microphone output level). It's really only intended for speech purposes like webcam.
 
USB microphones also vary much in quality, but are likely to produce a cleaner sounding result, especially if you can obtain a decent quality one.
 
Overall the best recordings will come from using a decent dynamic or condenser mic through a proper interface, of which there are many. I use an older E-MU 0404, the first similar example that popped up on a Google search:

Do we really have to pay Comcast et al to record TV programs we used to tape (VCR) for free?

A:Recording from TV

Hi,
I am guessing that You mean using their DVR?
Or are you referring to the fact that they have gone digital and You need their box to view the channels?
 
If You mean using their DVR there are alternatives. For example You can get a Tivo with cable card. However that is not free and can cost you a monthly fee too. If You only need Locals from an antenna and can live with SD resolution, then You can get a Magnavox DVD recorder with a Hard Drive and use it as a DVR as many people are doing. Long, long post here, now up to 841 pages.
 
I have the early Philips and a later model Magnavox. Timer setting is like the old VCR timers. It can record unscrambled Cable channels as well as off of an antenna.

 
On Sep 5, 2012, Funai, an award-winning Japanese company and Walmart Strategic Vendor, released its 53x Series. the 8th and probably final generation of these simple, family-friendly, durable, no-fee, single-tuner, SD 480i analog/digital DVD recorders (DVDR) with hard disk drive (HDD). They're yearly improvements of the same basic design and operating system first introduced in 2007 for the U.S. digital transition, the Philips DVDR3575H/37

 
or if HD is required from an antenna then from here.

 
5710 / 5750 Features:
5710 & 5750 are high-def (HD) Digital Video Recorders (DVR) with Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and streaming capability.
Internal OEM HDD (500GB / 1TB) + up to 8 external USB-HDDs 32GB-4TB, one at a time, menu selectable. No disc burner.

I am able to talk over the net on Instant messengers and I can hear myself talk thru the microphone BUt when I try to record on the sound recorder I get nothing on the playback. All the audio properties are checked where they should be. Any ideas???
 

A:mic not recording

Hi montemag, Knowing that you checked all preferences, this might seem like a dumb question. But are the preferred devices in both the voice recording, and sound capture sections the same device? Could the sound capture main volume be set on full, while the voice recording main volume be set low of off?

RELEVANCY SCORE 28.8

New at using VLC (latest version on Windows 7), and just learned that it can record DVDs and such.

My main goal is to take video clips from them and have the files as AVIs, but the recorded product always comes out to MPEG files, which is incompatible with what I want to do.

Is there a way I can change the record file output to AVI instead of MPEG, and if so, can someone walk me through it?
