I can't record audio!



  • beth

    Thanks, this helped -- with Itunes it worked. haven't tested yet to see if it will work with audacity (which is what I was using).

    On Macos 10.5, I tried recording a video with photobooth . No sound at all ?!!!! No preferences in Photobooth !!

    I had the idea  to open ISHOWU and check "record audio" (with  AUDIO INPUT = "internal microphone" in my preferences)

    Then restart photobooth and record my video .

    And now it's ok, my video in photobooth has got sound !

    I can't get this to work with the iPhone Simulator. The input level shows activity with iTunes and even the volume up and down buttons but as soon as I try to capture video and audio from the Simulator the level does not move and iShowU HD does not capture the audio. Please advise

    I ran all of these tests and I cannot get it to record audio when using "gotomeeting" webinar software.

    This is so frustrating. We still can not record audio from the iPhone Simulator. Why does this not work? Soundflower is set up correctly as is iShowU. In fact, everything else records the audio fine just not when using the Simulator which is the only reason we need this software. It has worked once before but never again. Please let us know how to get this working on a consistent basis. Thanks!

    Did everything above. Now I cannot hear the video I am attempting to capture. When I change back to the Mac's internal speakers, I can hear the video, but iShowU fails to capture its audio. Now what??

    Its frustrating, yep. 

    Tried to record audio from Google Chrome. Sometimes it does and sometimes doesnt, dont know why. 

    And have no idea what to do to record audio from Skype. ┬┐Soundflower input and output? ┬┐Sure? It didnt work at all.

    I have Mountain Lion OS, maybe this is the problem.

    completed the aforementioned tasks. I used to be able geometry dash to hear the video that I was trying to record, but now I can't. When I go back to the speakers that are built into the Mac, I am able to hear the video; but, iShowU is unable to record its audio. What's next?
