Unable to capture playing audio


dfosbenner

Question

"Easy Audio Capture says "Capture whatever audo is playing" in the description.

 

I put a DVD movie in a drive and play it. In the Easy Audio Capture, it doesn't capture anything. In "Capture From" the sound card is the only choice. In "Input", the choices are Line in, Microphone, or Rear Mic. None of them allow audio to be captured.

 

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Your sound card is not providing an input that allows you to do what you're trying to do.Try updating the drivers and see if it changes.

It could also be a Vista sound issue if you're using it but that's another story.

Bruce's way is much better for doing that.

I'm using XP. Yes, it is a commercial DVD. I'm not looking to pirate it, but there's a song on it that I'd like to listen to in my car. So from the looks of things, the sound card isn't giving me the option I need? It's a Sigmatel sound chip integrated on a Dell Demension 9200.

 

Thanks for the help everyone.

If the movie is a commercial movie, I don't think it will capture the audio. If it isn't a commercial audio, the best way to get the audio is to copy the DVD to your hard drive, open, Sound Editor, click on the Import from CD/DVD, then browse to your DVD drive, double click on the Video_TS folder, and the movie should show in the box to the right. Click on the movie, then click on OK, and give the file a name, pick a folder to save it to, and save it as a .wav file.

 

You can get that audio, directly from the DVD, but it will be slower than copying it to your hard drive first.
