Re: no audio captured with USB HDMI capture device.

Ok, got it working. What I had to do was go into preferences and put the input for the mic to the capture device. So, the capture audio on OBS is played through what it thinks is the mic. I don't know if this makes ANY sense, but it was the only way of doing it. Then I can select ANOTHER mic source ...

Re: no audio captured with USB HDMI capture device.

if you get no audio from hdmi the first thing to try is unplug your hdmi wait a few seconds and plug it back in. in Terminal run pulseaudio -k and wait about 6 seconds for the new sound cookies to be regenerated and last it seems that opening the sound settings kickstarts audio. click your volume i...

[SOLVED]no audio captured with USB HDMI capture device.

I asked on the OBS forums and sent Magewell an email, but heck, I'll try here also since I'm using Mint and maybe it is a setting on my OS. . . So I have a Magewell USB Capture HDMI Plus and the video is great but I'm not getting audio. There is an headphone jack on the device, and I'm getting audio...

Re: software for changing logitech webcam settings

I don't mind the command line, I think I have to shutdown the video source, apply settings, and then reopen it. I just wanted to see the affects in real time to adjust them. I guess it isn't that bad really, at least I can adjust settings!

software for changing logitech webcam settings

I was wondering if there was software just for adjusting the settings for logitech webcams. I have the c922x and I'm trying to use a green screen in OBS and I need to adjust the white balance and try a few other settings and I can't do that through OBS. On windows I guess there is a logitech program...

Re: Disabling Journaling on new SSD

I read a SSD doesn't need journaling and it should be disabled, it just wears out the read/write life of the SSD.

So I'll use sudo but what should exactly should I write?

Re: Installing Blender 2.79 and not 2.80 beta

I thought maybe I had some PPA for the latest blender because I remember having trouble installing blender 2.79 when 2.78 was i...

Installing Blender 2.79 and not 2.80 beta

My blender got borked and I uninstalled it and went to install it again and now it installs 2.80 Beta. All my config files for blender are for 2.79 and I'll eventually upgrade when it is out but I need to get something done for work. Is there a way to install 2.79 rather than 2.80? 2.79 seems to ins...

Re: [SOLVED] USB sound card

Re: USB sound card

Note: If you want to be able to record what is playing through your desktop (speaker out) and a microphone (input) at the same time, then you will need a sound card that will allow "stereo mix" input capture option. The basic USB sound card I got does not do that, but the built-in sound card on the...

Resizing retro grapics

I wanted to use some elements from some retro games to use on my desktop but when I try to use them they get all fuzzy. So I set the emulator to a 1x size, screen capture the window, crop the window out, and it looks great. I import it into GIMP and can scale it but I can't find a file format to sav...

Mic paired with Zoom H1 sounds amazing, through notebook sounds like crap

I dual boot Ubuntu Studio and Mint and both have the same issue: mic audio sucks. I don't think it is my microphone, a Sony ECMCS3 because I use it with a Zoom H1 and mix it with my gopro footage for youtube and it sounds amazing. However, when I use it on my notebook, a system76 Lemur, it is not go...

Ok, so ubuntu 16.04 has this problem also so it is something with the base.

I can start into 'system recovery mode' ...

Re: 14 inch notebook good for video editing w/ Linux support

The read/write speeds of a good mSATA drive hooked up to USB 3.0 is 150 + MB/s and I don't think I have ever had a mechanical drive get over or even up to 100MB/s so I think it would work. The problem finding lan houses in South America to check out is they don't really advertise, at all, not on the...

Re: 14 inch notebook good for video editing w/ Linux support

The live USB is to use in Lan Houses, I'll probably only use it with computers have USB 3.0. The read/write of the high USB 3.0 sticks is faster than a mechanical drive so I'm guessing it will be usable. I've also been looking into mSATA USB 3.0 enclosures, much cheaper than a high end USB 3.0 stick...

Also, OpenVPN kept disconnecting on me, might have been my VPN service, so I switched to a pptp connection and it stays up 100%. This might be Mint, OpenVPN, or the service ...

Re: Any luck on setting up a 'Live CD Persistence' with Petr

Alright, I guess I'll give it a go. My 64GB thumb drive just died so I have to get another one before I try it out but just partitioning and installing would be so much easier than hunting for any other solution. For some reason I just never thought that was possible.

Thanks!
