"There must be more to life than this." Struggling to get the sound right

Sorry I can't upload Freddy Mercury singing,


1.  I've spent (wasted?) hours playing around with two micros, Logitech USB  and non-USB Typhoon. Typhoon sounds great.

I've changed all the variables ion various permutations , but have nothing very final to report.

2.  I decided to delete and reinstall Simple Cast and VAC. That was a MISTAKE! New versions do not work at all, and throw up

Checklist for Audio Setup to Webcast in Windows: Streaming

Jeff's Screencast on this

First part is just like for recording. If you aren't recording, skip opening Audacity, but do the rest...
_ Set up audio settings in Windows (right click on speaker icon at lower right of screen)
_ Open Volume Controls
_ Options; Properties

Bumpy Ride - Task 3

Argghh!  Third task - not so smooth as second task.  Had success streaming (with the help of the most incredible and dedicated Durff!) in Sandbox A on Tuesday night at 10pm - and I know I was actually streaming as Sagittarian's Stream as my very good partner Jason could hear Durff and I talking!  Unfortunately, no such success with recording the stream - only my voice is present and I'm pretty sure it's because I'm not using a USB mic yet.

Teachers4TELL - Getting Ready for the Real Show!

Well, yesterday was a blast! Once again the intrepid Webcasters-to-Be gang got together just for a little practice, but it simply became a whole show! Yes, with guests, participants, change of streamers on the go, all kinds of topics...In the Webhead/Edtechtalk spirit, very organic. Streaming just started to flow and voices were pretty loud and active. My settings to record with Audacity and to stream in Sandbox A were the same as last time. In the middle of the show, I stopped streaming and Illya picked it up. Successful transition. Laughs! I'm sure Illya felt the responsibility of having Jeff as a guest of our show! One week before I couldn't imagine to be skyping Jeff who wanted to be there with us. We even had listeners, Linda Parisi and Susan Ettenheim got to Sandbox A.

Illya's show - troubleshooting with Jose

My first streaming experience - hurray!!!

Thanks, Jose, for taking me through the steps.

Simplecast: Not getting choice for 64kps on stream?

I'm going to try to attach a screencast showing that Simplecast is not giving  me the same size options as shown in Jeff's video. Any thoughts?

Hmm, won't attach.

More Simplecast

When I try to start the encoders in Simplecast I get an error message: "Access violation at address 00466292 in module "SimpleCast.exe'. Read of address 000002EC" Help! I cannot stream and get no further than that. Cathy E. suggested I uninstall the software and then reinstall.  Ideas? 

WOW 2.0 February 20, 2007 Show Finally!
