Recorded Video Sound

Q: Recorded Video Sound

Hi, i recorded a streaming video off of the internet and when i came to play it i noticed it was very quiet. I was wondering if there was anyway to make it sound louder without turning up the volume on my speakers? I used the program - Frontcam - to record the video.

I await your replies

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.)

A: Recorded Video Sound

To record sound: Right click the icon of "volume control" on your system tray bar (on the right bottom corner of the screen) and then go to the menu item "options"->"properties"->"recording" and press the "OK" button, check the proper item you want to recording and then start sound recording.
To record sound from microphone: check "Microphone".
To record sound from other application: check "Stero Mix" or "Mono Mix", the name may be different depending on your system.
Did you do everything like that?

I am super panicked at the moment. The 2-hr meeting recording I made today just will not play. And it turned into some Janet Jackson song? What is this?

Anyone had the same problem?
I recorded it using the Sound Recorder in the laptop.
The file is there, length is correct, just won't play and has this Janet Jackson thing in the properties.

Anyone could help me with this?

Greetings-I have a rather small (OK, maybe it's large) problem. I am trying to capture video from my TV and transfer it to my PC. I am using an TV Tuner PCI Phillips 7130 ( SBT-TBFM) capture device to do so. I have checked all my connections and believe I have everything connected correctly. While the video is being captured, I am able to see the video and hear the audio stream and everything appears fine. That said, after I finish capturing the video and open the video file, the video plays but there is no sound. This seems to indicate that no sound is coming into the PC, but since I was able to hear audio during the preview, I know this is not the case. I am on Windows 7 running a 2.8 GHz AMD with 4 GB of RAM. I am using the Honestech TVR software that came with the TV Tuner. I have writing to the seller SABRENT and to Honestech, and their answers have not resolved the problem.

THis is very frustrating, so any help is appreciated.

I recently recorded a video interview using my laptop's video recording, the video was a little over 30 minutes long. When I went to play the video, my computer would not play it. When I try to open it, it says "Can not play. Choose something else to play. This item is in a format we don't support.  0xc1010103" even though it will play other videos I have recorded on the computer. I am not sure if the video was too long or if it somehow got corrupted.  This is a very important video that I need for a class assignment, is there any way I can play it?

I bought my wife Adaptec's VideOH multimedia center USB for Christmas. It seems to work fine, TV's great and recording seems to be. She recorded a VHS tape of the family and the video plays back fine on the PC, there's just no sound. I took the disc to the DVD player attached to our main TV and the sound was good. It appears the drive is not set up to play digital sound, which seems strange for a DVD/CD burner. I tried to see if there were any audio settings for the drive by going to Properties from the Control Panel. There weren't. The PC is running XP Media Center, it's an Athlon 64 3400+ with a gig of RAM.

Another audio quirk which may be unrelated: my wife and her sister play games on Pogo (I think that's it). If my wife logs on to the site, she doesn't get sound. If she logs on as her sister (they cheat) she gets sound. That's not a real problem for her, but I put it in as it might be related.

I stream on a regular basis, as well as use Discord often when playing games or listening to music. Whatever the situation may be, I find that whenever a program of any kind is recording my mic the other sounds are dampened unless they are extremely loud. I have specifically turned off attenuation in Discord, and I have also disabled the related Windows call settings and none have provided a solution. All drivers are up to date, and specs are below.

A colleague is having problems with recorded sound. He can hear any sound coming through the sound card, but when he uses the Windows Sound Recorder, he says he can hear something, but it is barely audible. He says he has checked all the volume levels, and they are at the highest. Is there anything else he should check, besides updating the drivers? I believe it is an AC97 built in card.

Hey, Im trying to record my voice using a headset plugged into the back of my pc (front doesnt work) but when i play it back there is crackling or fbuzziness whenever i spoke...
i got a new headset (from creative) but i still hear the buzzing on playback.
its a new motherboard as well, M4n72-e, with no added soundcards so it could be i dont have a soundcard, however my old computer was fine with playback without any soundcards either (a8nsli deluxe)
and because its new, i doubt its a connection problem to the back of my pc either...
any other music is perfectly fine when playing.
thanks for any suggestions

Probably from recording volume too "hot" or loud, inducing digital distortion. Try lowering input level.

This is an odd question but I am hoping someone knows what I am wanting to do.

I have a job where I constantly say the same stupid line when I answer the phone. Its a software phone and what I want to do is, record my greeting via the sound recorder, then play it back THROUGH the audio pickup as though I am speaking it through the microphone as usual, not through my computer speakers.

Is there a way to do this? It would so make my job more bearable.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with a VIA High Definition sound card.

When I record from my record player or cassette deck, all audio coming through the computer is distorted, especially if it's a loud recording.

All the Stereo Mixer and Recording levels are set to low. I'm using an RCA audio/video cable with the red and white ends on the turntable or tape deck, and the other end is a 3.5 mm jack inserted into the microphone jack on the front of the computer. In the sound properties, under stereo mix, the level is set to 54. This doesn't affect the recordings. The next selection is the front mic. The level is set to 10 with a microphone boost of 0. At this low level, most of the entire recording has some level of distortion. I record to WavePad, and the distortion is there EVEN THOUGH the waveform peaks are nowhere near the top.

It wasn't always like this, so I don't know what happened. All the settings seem to be correct.

By the way, I hooked up a new 8 track player I purchased last week with the same setup. There are no volume settings at all on the machine. When hooked to the computer, a volume setting of ONE was enough nearly to blow out my speakers! What's happening here?

A:Sound Recorded to Computer is Distorted

Do you have a "Line In"? That is the jack to use as its stereo. The Mic jack is only mono (one channel) as the second connection (ring) on the mic jack is for +5VDC that is required by computer mic's.

It sound like the record volume is too high. However, if you are recording from a turntable direct unless it has a built in RIAA preamplifier you need an RIAA preamp to recapture the fidelity of recordings. Most turntables do not have the RIAA preamp built in.

Along with the Stereo Mix level, the level of the individual device (mic or Line in) must also be set. If that is set too high it could be causing the distortion.

A:No Picture Just Recorded Sound from Camera

Hi donethetoll, and welcome to TSG.

You have not given us any real information to work with. How about telling us ...

1) Brand and model number of the camera

2) Did you shoot still pictures with sound or did you shoot video with sound?

3) If the camera offers recording with different resolutions and/or different file formats, what did you use to shoot the problem picture?

4) If the camera allows viewing the pictures on a screen built into the camera, are the pictures and sound OK?

5) Operating system of the computer

6) Name and version number of the software used to transfer the file from the camera to the computer's hard drive.

7) Name and version number of the software you are using to view the pictures

8) Are you able to download any other picture files from the camera and view them OK?

I had posted a question a while back about setting up a network and with the answers from "Tech Guy"did get a system working just fine. My Desktop is a Dell Dimension 8400 with XP Media center OS and the laptop is a Toshiba Satellite with Windows Vista Premium. I have two external drives the one I use primarily in storing my present personal active files including a file that stores recording media which the desktop Media Center gets from the TV cable connection. Then this file is also available via the network to the laptop. With the external drive all my other stored files from the desktop are also available on my laptop. Lately I have had several movie downloads and several repeats of the series "Jag"which play on the desktop but will not play on the laptop with various excuses for them not playing like "Cannot play this format:" or " for one reason or another "not authorized to play". I would think the recordings between the two Media Centers would be identical unless Microsoft has changed that too with Vista. I am very unhappy with Vista.

Hi Everybody

This is my first post on this forum, so please excuse if I don't get it all right in terms of etiquette and code of conduct - I will try my best though!

I have this about 18 months old PC - i7, 920 with 6 Gb memory and a set of el cheapo speakers. Don't remember the motherboard details - shall post when I get home tonight. I am running Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit O/S on it.

When I try and play any CD/DVD/music or video stored on this or any other PC on my home network - all work fine with sound coming from the external speakers - so far so good!

I recently bought a Kaiser Bass HD TV tuner - works ok! Recorded a short TV clip. It seemingly recorded ok because whilst I was recording it, I heard the sound coming from my external speakers. However, when I tried to play it back on this computer using Media Player, Media Centre, Winamp etc., there was no audio at all - what happened? Can anyone help?

I had previously downloaded the freeware 'FreeCoder' (I think its called) to record audio from soundcard (apparently) - I have uninstalled it now. Again, the same problem occurs, that is, when I am recording it, audio seems to be ok but when I playback the recording, there is no playback?

Any help would be highly valued.

Best regards

A:No sound on recordings' playback - clip recorded on this PC!

If I understand you correctly, you cannot record what you are listening to?

Regardless of exact source and regardless of recording program?

Or do you think you ARE recording, but the recording cannot be heard when played back?

It's unlikely related to your choice of recorder.

Go to your sound control panel. Look at the recording tab. Do you see a choice for stereo mix, stereo mixer, or "what you hear"?? If not, right click in a blank white spot within that recording tab and confirm that "enable disconnected devices" and "enable disabled devices" are both checked.

Do you then see stereo mix, stereo mixer, or what you hear? If so enable them so they have a green check mark.

Then try recording again.

After 6 good months where everything worked just fine, I have now lost the sound on Live TV in windows media center, and there is no sound when I playback recorded TV in Media Center.

In addition I have the following observations:

No "introduction sound" - when media center starts.
No sound when I try "Configuration of speakers" in Media Center
Sound works fine when playing music
Sound works fine when playing the recorded TV programs in Media player - in other words, the files are intacts - it is just Media Center that does not work

Based on the above I assume taht I have problems with my CODECS. Problem is - I have no clue how to fix it!

First step un-install every codec pack yu have added. Check and see if problem goes away. If it does just add the absolute minimum number of codecs (not packs) that you need to get all type of media working. Or you could use a player htat will play them without additional codecs likE VLC

A:Creative audigy 4 crackling recorded sound HELP :((

First thing, do you have the Win 7 drivers for this old SB sound card? If you only have Windows installed drivers, go to the Creative site and download the actual Creative drivers HERE

After you get the Creative drivers (if you don't have them), try recording the mic to the Windows sound recorder and see if you get the crackling there. If not, that would say the sound card is OK and the problem is probably in the setup for FL Studio. I use Sonar X1 so I can't say what FL studio actually needs.

I tried a search but had no luck.

I can't play a dvd without the sound be garbled. It used to work but that might have been before I got the Dell external TV tuner and installed it.
TV from Media center plays fine. Itunes sounds fine.
DVD play seems fine but the sound is garbled. I tried installing an older version of cyberlink (4.0 I think) and it played fine with that program but then media center quit playing recorded tv. (I guess they are not compatible).

It is on a Dell E1505 with a t2500 processor, 2048 ram, 80 gb hard drive, mobility radeon X1400 video, high res screen and dvd burner. About 10 months old.

Ideas? If not, would a newer version of cyberlink be friendly with media center so I could also play recorded tv?

I had been recording cartoon shows off and on for my godson to watch. In February, I started getting errors and every attempt to burn a video DVD aborts. At first I thought maybe I had some bad DVD+R media, but I am able to burn other things to DVD outside of Media Center. I can burn data DVDs, but fail on video DVDs.

Here is what happens: In Media Center, I select the episodes of recorded TV shows that I want to burn to DVD. The process starts normally, indicating that it may take "several hours" to finish. After about an hour or so, at around 25% completion, I hear the DVD burner spin up like it is going to start burning the DV. After a few (less than ten) seconds, it stops and ejects the disk. In Media Center, an error comes up saying: "BURN FAILURE, An error has occurred in burning the CD/DVD." There is no further info nor error codes. It appears that something does get burned to the disk during those few seconds, because the system will no longer recognize the disk and it must be trashed.

So far, I have tried all the tips that I can find for similar problems (install CODECs, reregistering DLL files, etc.), but nothing helps.

Alright, I have spend about 3 years trying to resolve this problem and I have done so much research that I felt it would be a waste for me not to post something about it. 
After I owned two Dell laptops, the XPS13 and Alienware 17. Both having the same problems. I tried everything, I read through all of the forums and I tried everytthing these forums have suggested and at multiple occasions I ruined my laptop and had to format it. 
I also always had the full warrenty with Dell customer service and have replaced my xps13 TWICE and my Alienware once. This is of course after replacing the motherboard and the hard drive and spending endless hours over the phone with them while they update all my drivers and ensure my software is running correctly. They ran 100's of tests on my computer to see why this is happening and no one could ever solve this problem. 
However, after all this research with no solution in sight I thought of the problem logically. My alienware was running 16 gb of ram and 1 TB of HDD regular hard drive. I figured if I have so much ram to run anything I want, maybe it is having the regular hard drive that is not keeping up with the ram. Sure enough, when I went and bought the best SSD out there Samsung Pro 950 256 GB and installed it and used it as my operating system while the HDD ran as my storage. For the first time in 3 years and 4 computers... my pc was running with no jitterz or lagging or any issues!

I had to reboot to get sound but after a couple of minutes, the sound cut off again and I wasn't even gaming then. Video playback became really laggy (YouTube played videos as if in slow motion) and there was no sound.

I had to reboot the PC several times. Unisntalled sound card (through Device Manager) and then reinstalled it as well as the latest drivers. Still had same issue when I tried playing GTA IV.

Today, I got consecutive BSODs while playing GTA IV. I've had several issues with GTA IV like missing textures, no sound, freezing (at loading screens), CTD (crash to desktop) etc. Tried reinstalling the game several times from scratch and even tried different hard drive but none of them work(ed).

I'm playing GTA IV heavily modded (Gionight ENB mod with several custom cars/weapons etc.) but my computer is a beast and it should be able to handle it easily.

My specs:

CPU: i7 990X
Mainboard: Asus P6T7 WS Supercomputer
Memory: 12GB Corsair Domintar 1600MHz
Hard Drive: 32GB SLC SSD x2 (RAID-0)
Video: EVGA GTX-580 3GB Tri-SLI
Sound: Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium HD
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 1200W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

The first BSOD was STOP code 0x124 and that was with stock clocks for the GPU. The second BSOD was STOP code 0x1000007e and that was with GPUs OC'd to 850MHz.

A:put sound back in video[moved from video cards]

Hi J.r, welcome to TSF.

To clarify, you want to extract the audio from a video; remix it and place it back over the video?

In my mind, I would use software to record the audio.
Using video software, I would mute the original audio on the video, and place my remix over the top. Do you think this is something you could achieve?

I'm unclear on what you mean by:


but I want to eq,

Is this a typo?

On a family members computer running Windows 7 when using firefox (most recent version) any time a video is played on either facebook or various news websites like fox news or cnn the video just shows up white while the sound is still playing. Additionally, players like the watch instant player on netflix wont allow pausing, the button to pause simply does not work. I have re-installed drivers, emptied the cache, turned on and off hardware acceleration on flash, various solutions found around the web. I'm at a loss, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

A:How can I get sound output from sound card when streaming video?

Hello green,

You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack

Do you have the audio driver installed? This should be right: http://support.acer.com/product/defa...x?modelId=2192

Recently my desktop decided it wasn't going to co-operate anymore. After a lot of googling and many patience lost I decided I would throw in the towl and ask for help lol. 
I have no sound whatsoever, not from mp3s and not from streaming. Streaming video chops every half a second, but I can play downloaded avi video, still with no sound.
I ran malware bytes, no infections. and nothing from avg.
I tried system restore, both times it failed for some reason, at 2 different restore points.
my video card is working and so is my sound card.
im a do it yourself type person but this one has me beat, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A:Suddenly, no windows sound and no streaming video/sound.

I have the same problem.  Yesterday morning I booted up and all of a sudden there is no sound.  And Windows media player will not work ... no video or audio.  I have checked all cables and connections...plugged in different speakers and checked for system sounds which don't work as well.  I get video  from movies and videos with GOM player and internet videos but no sound.
About concluded that motherboard may be cause, but really don't want to install a new one.
Does anyone have a better idea?
Please advise

We only notice this when playing full screen video, but the PC will 'stutter', video will freeze and sound will jam for about 20 seconds. Our box is connected to an Optoma Projector via VGA and we may start a film with one monitor configured but i've noticed 'phantom monitors' (a second screen that doesn't exist) appearing after one of these freezes.

The resolution also often changes between 1280x720 and 1152x - this seems to go hand in hand with the freeze, presumably a reaction to this 'phantom monitor' appearing.

My box is an MSI Media Live, which comes with an NVidia GForce 6150 LE - i've tried the latest standard nvidia drivers and also used 'browse' to find the Microsoft Nvidia Driver Variant which doesn't fix the problem.

Has anyone got any idea how I might fix this or what the cause may be???



A:PC 'stutters' - video and sound when playing video

An update on this: I added a registry key to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers from another post changing the time required before windows resets my video card.

Now when a crash happens i don't get resolution change/display reset (presumably because the timeout is now much higher) but the movie playing will freeze a little then catch up in a series of really fast frames.

So this is partially better, but the freeze is still happening and the sound still stutters horribly - I thought this was a video driver problem, but obviously not -- what else could be causing this???
