Dazzle and Audio

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have recently run into a problem with Dazzle DVC capturing audio. I have no problem with Dazzle setup. I have no problems in the Setup Wizard. I have sound during capture. However after I capture video the thumbnail in the work space shows a speaker with a blue line through it. I play the captured video and get no sound. I play the .mpg file in WMP and there is no sound. Also under the Samples tab those files have lost sound. I've downloaded and installed alot of the programs that are recommended in this forum for creating a VCD and am wondering if I have screwed up the audio encoding process associated with Dazzle somehow?

I am not familiar with Dazzle. But does Dazzle has sound capture port or it uses your sound card line-in port? If it uses sound card, better check your sound mixer setting for "recording" property. Beware of saying "there is sound during capture" The "playback" property may be selected for line-in, (i.e. not muted) but the recording maybe not be selecting line-in. It may be set to Mic, for instance. You will still hear the sound coming in, but it will not be recorded.

I used to switch my recording property between Microphone(for my internet phone) and line-in (for VCD making).

make sure you have the audio wires on the dazzle running from it's output into the "line in" on the back of your PC. Or see if you have it set as "video clip" when it shoul;d be set to video/audio clip (all under the "recording tab"). Also on the "configuration tab" make sure the audio is up (setting both to 45 works best) and make sure it says line in on this screen as well. Hope this helps

I had problem with audio being out of synch with the video for long video. I read in an earlier posting that this is caused by IC overheating. I carved a hole on the side of my Dazzle to allow more air. I hang the dazzle infront of the exhaust fan of my power supply. will let you know the result.

Some time ago a read that video and audio getting gradually a bit out of sync when you have a long play time, is caused by the capture card when that lets the audio capture by the (software) audio card of the PC. You should have a lok at that too.
