No Audio When Capturing Using Vhs To Dvd Device

Question

Using Creator 2010 Pro and Roxio VHS to DVD device.

OS - Windows XP

Audio - Realtek AC97

Using Composite Video (S Video is not available on my player)

Stereo Mix and SPDIF are the options offered as audio input to the capture. Neither work.

 

I used to have SPDIF available on my Audio Volume Controls but it is now grayed out.

 

Another Question: (don't know if it is related to the lack of audio). I get a message saying that MediaCapture12.exe wants to know if I want to use FFDShow or not?

I have no idea what that's is about. I googled it and got a lot of information that seemed worrisome but I didn't really understand it.

I hope that is enough information to be useful in figuring out what I should do.:o

Thanks.

FFDShow is an open source video codec that supports many video file formats. Did you install it? It shouldn't cause a problem, but you never know.

 

I didn't knowingly install it but it appears when I select the "Capture Video" option on Creator 2010 menu.

It offers the option to enable it for 1 time, always, or never. I've tried it and can tell no difference whether it's on or off. Just gun shy about using things I know nothing about.

Thanks for the info

Personally, I haven't see that screen and Roxio doesn't install it that I know. So perhaps it was installed with some other app that you have or tried out?

 

I found .exe file in C:\Program Files\Roxio 2010 Media Import 12 and in C:\Windows\Prefetch.

Can you tell if it is part of the Roxio installation or not? I never saw it before I installed 2010 Pro. I think I can opt to say "don't ever use it", but am reluctant to do so until I know what I'm doing.

 

I am still having problems with my video capture and perhaps should start a new topic. Actually the capture seems to be just fine. Video and audio are both very good but when I play the capture file the audio sound like the chipmunks. Very fast and squeaky. I havent a clue .....:blink:

Just to confirm, neither do I.

 

Update the drivers for that video chip and use Windows/Start/Run/ dxdiag / run then sound or audio tab to turn off the audio acceleration. Sorry, I don't have a screen shot to show you.

Sorry, I must have missed this message.

Earlier, I updated the drivers and it seems like the color red is more vivid on my desk top, if that means any thing.

I'll turn off the audio acceleration now and let you know.

If everything is working, don't do anyting!

 

Does you monitor have a built in color calibration? You may have to look at the disc that came ith the monitor to find it. If not, you may want to consider getting a colorimeter to set your desktop colors. Windows sets sort of a neutral color scheme.

Don't know about the Monitor - it looks fine to me ---and as you say "If everything is working, don't do anything! " I won't.

I'm trying to make sure that the PSU I order will be OK for my system
