Hi pascal111,

You are welcome...

I am just glad it is working for you now.

You should be able to see more options in your sound settings, and or pulse audio volume control, etc...

Can you now use SSR (SimpleScreenRecorder), or OBS, or guvcview, etc... to record audio?


FYI: When you post a shared "direct link" to a remote image from an image hosting website back into a forum post or reply, click the "rimg" toolbar button first before pasting the link and it should show up better and not go into your image hosting account when clicked.

Should look something like below before you click submit to your post/reply

Code: Select all

[rimg]https://i.postimg.cc/fWv1KJMm/qasmixers.png[/rimg]
.

postimages.org click share then direct link copy, then go into forum to edit post or reply, click "rimg" and paste the copied direct link.

The change is in your first image, the left and right channels had very slightly different settings. Now they are equal, so it just shows as one bar.

SSR works fine, also OBS, also Kazam, guvcviw worked but it records from mic I think it need me to configure it for what I want first. For options, there's some changes in the records, blank fields have data now.

Yes, and the PCM parameter is one now but before it was two parameters or bars.

Hi pascal111,

Well, your first video appears to be working with video and audio. What did you use to create it with?

I tested Kazam, SSR but I used OBS because I'm familiar with it because I used it before in Windows.
