Video, But No Game Audio, Or Commentary

Question

Okay, I didn't get any help for what I previously posted, so I'll try again without including any other issues then the one I want addressed, thank you....

I'm not recording on any console of any type, I am recording exclusivly PC gaming and when I listen to my recordings, I only get Video Feed, and no Audio.

This is highly confusing, please help. Again, recording on PC of PC game footage, I'm getting Video but no Audio.

 

Here are my specs.

 

 

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601

Since I can't edit the title, I will add I did want answers about recording Commentary but now I just want what's above answered, please.

OF course a PS3 cannot be conected wtih HDMI...

 

You fail to provide any description of what you are using or any PC specs (probably don't need those specs but the console is vital :huh: )

 

and NO there is no easy or cheap way to record you own voice - unless you use seperate software and add the file into your capture.

Okay, I was just saying that I was able to record with my PS3 to A.) prove the device worked and B.) to ask about recording voice commentary.

 

Since you say with PS3 you get both audio and video I take it you're posting about XBox.

If so go into the Xbox and try changing from Dolby to Stereo.

 

I posted this in the PC Capture category, so I thought it was a given I was capturing PC Game Footage, I misunderstood.

After much painstaking experimentation, I figured it out myself... the sound needs to be going through the monitor itself in order to be captured, not the speakers. Thanks anyway.

Sorry this is taking so much time to resolve but your 'conclusion/solution' will not work :huh:

 

The RGC captures ONLY what is coming into it!

 

Whereas your Monitor is downstream of anything it is 'seeing'...

 

If it isn't here on one of these inputs:

...the RGC cannot hear or see it so it cannot be captured.

 

There seem to have been several good responses to your question, have you followed up on those?

I have, and yes, I understand which port is which, I've just only found one method that actually works, and that was routing it to my HDTV, it forces the video and audio to go through the HDMI cord. It works best with my TV as it has a headphone jack I can use, otherwise through my monitor, the noise comes out and pollutes my microphone's recording...

 

To get it to work with my monitor, I suppose I'll just have to get component cables, but at least I found one method that works, even if it's not what I'd prefer.

 

I have a component cable that plugs into the speaker port on the back of my computer that I can hook up to the Roxio, but that didn't work either, as it can't use that and the HDMI input port, it just defaults to the HDMI port. The next thing I'm going to try is a component cable that can hook up to my modern, I'm thinking a component cable that can connect to the DVI port, and use that same component cable that hooks to the two audio ports.

 

So again, I'm going to attempt component cables going into the input side, and an HDMI cord going out of the output side, into my monitor, and see if that works, similar to the PS3 setup, which does work.

 

Sorry for the late reply, this has been a side project that's taken up a lot of time, and I had some stuff to take care of before trying something new.

Wait, will the DVI port on the back of the computer work? What if I just hooked it up to a DVI to HDMI cord and plugged that into the input side of the Roxio?

 

EDIT: Nevermind, that wouldn't work because it would still not be getting audio, just video.

What I'm going to try is DVI to RCA plugs and a Audio Y Cable Splitter both into the input side.

The DVI port for video and the Y Cable Splitter for audio from the speaker plug in the back of the computer.

 

Will this work?

 

EDIT: Or wait, is all I need is the RCA plugs? But I'm also trying to use headphones...

Or should I use a HDMI to RCA plug? I'm at a loss for what cables to use for the component plugs :(
