Capture Internet Audio


shoiley

Question

I have a new computer and have installed EMC9. I want to capture streaming audio. I am able to select line in but the list for input devices is blank. I have integrated audio - is that the problem? I see the listing for compatible video capture - but is there something like that for audio cards?

 

When I click record - something does record - however, no sound plays back.

 

Please advise.

I just got an HP Pavillion m8000n with Realtek Audio and have the same problem. I just got the latest drivers, but they still do not recognize the output of the sound "card" as input for recording. What driver do you have? I downloaded High Definition Audio Codecs Vista Driver(32/64 bits) Driver only (Executable file) R1.65 2007/4/13 from ftp://61.56.86.122/pc/audio/Vista_R165.exe (Realtek site).

 

I had to reinstall this driver and then run the Realtek configuration from the Control Panel and I'm now able to capture streaming audio.

Right click realtek icon, highlight and open recording devices, right click any item in screen, when options appear highlight show disabled devices and select , finally highlight stereo mix (it was all the way at the bottom for me) right click and select enable.

 

Also, don't forget to change properties of stereo mix from 1 channel to 2 channel.

You may be able to capture it.There are some newer chips that let you do this

The question is what choices do you have for your "Capture from" and "Input" lists in Easy Audio Capture?Line-in won't work,that's what's being fed externally into your sound card.

The Capture from box should say your sound card.The Input box needs to say something like What You Hear or Wav.There are other things it could say.The thing to do is setup EAC with your sound card as the Source and then try whatever choices you have for Input.Watch the meters while you are playing the Internet stream and if you see them move you should be capturing it.If you try one and it doesn't work just try the next Input choice.

If you go through all the choices and still the meters don't move then it's like Bruce said and you'll need to get a seperate sound card and it should work.

 

You said when you click record something does record.How do you know?Also no sound plays back.Is this while you're recording or when you try and play the file afterwards?

I have done everything stated above and was able to sort of make it work from "Stereo Mix." Problem is I still cannot access the "Input" box nor control the recording levels. Has anyone been successful at it? Would appreciate if you'd post how you did it. Thanks.

Just wanted to add my bit to this as I had been having this problem too and it was driving me nuts. I had bought a Sony VAIO VGN AR 21S notebook last November and had been running Creator version 7. I had been capturing streamed audio with no problems even though I had an onboard chip (Sigmatel).

 

Then I upgraded to VISTA and also bought the new Roxio version 9.

 

From this point I couldn't see anything to capture audio from except a microphone. I tried everything, including updating drivers and read so many forum posts across the web. Even if I right clicked on the volume icon in the system tray, selected recording device, then right clicked in the right space to ensure that all devices whether disabled or disconnected, nothing else showed.

 

So having read elsewhere that the only option may be to buy a soundcard I did just that. I bought an external Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook (cost approx £90). The box said that it was for Windows 2000 and XP but the sales guy said that I could pick up a new VISTA driver from the web. So brought it home, inserted it into the PC Card Slot and followed the written instructions that came with the sound card, which told me to cancel Windows request to install hardware, to instead install via inserting and running the Istallation and Applications disk. This didn't work as it didn't recognise VISTA.

 

Next, I reinserted the sound card and this time let VISTA do all the installation for me - ie it asked did it want me to do the installation and I said yes. At one point it asked for the original installation and applications cd and it picked the drivers of this to end up saying it was a successful install.

 

Moment of truth - I ran my internet radio and after a couple of restarts then opened Easy Audio Capture and hey presto 'What You Hear' appeared allowing me to capture as I wanted.

 

Have just woken up and managed to capture a good 6 hours of radio for my gym sessions this week...

 

I'm not a techie but was determined to get this working and this did the trick. Hope this saves someone the trouble of spending hours like I did trying to fix this.

I had the exact same problem until I downloaded & installed the latest drivers for the audio chipset used in my PC (RealTek HD in an HP PC). I don't know if the new drivers solved the problem or if simply re-installing the drivers after Roxio EMC was installed fixed something that was broken. It has worked fine ever since though.

You can't capture streaming audio with an onboard chip. Stand alone audio cards are relatively inexpensive.
