Pilots check-list before departure - a list of settings from Niels
My settings for a working system for recording AND streaming:
Soundcard: SigmaTel C-Major Audio v. 188.8.131.52.4255 (11.03.05)
USB-mic from Logitech – AK5379 – driver MS 5.1.2535.0 (01.07.01
Installed: full version of AVC – Audio Virtuel Cabels – or ask Jeff! + all programs form the webcas kit for windows
SYSTEM: WinXP professional v. 2002 - servicepak 2 -
PC: Latitude D810 from Dell - Prosessor 2GHz - 1 GB RAM
I first open "Recording and Play" (in controlpanel) display to control sound and settings
Recording is set on: StereoMix
Sound in: AK5370 (my usb-mic)
Sound out: SigmaTel C-Major Audio (my soundcard)
Sound NOT automatic – I disabled this in the hared.xml – file se->
Playing: SigmaTel C-Major Audio (soundcard)
Recording: SigmaTel C-Major Audio (soundcard)
+popup: control this is on STEREOMIX
Alternative for recording with Audacity – use i-sound (leave this out -it´NOt a part of the "show" )
Settings->MIXER-> Recording device: SigmaTel C-Major Audio (soundcard)
And Recording Source: Stereomix
X Mixer Lock – avtivated (smart device!! To avoid a common failure)
Open Audio Repeater (from AVC)
Settings: Wave inn: AK5370 (USB-mic)
Wave out: SigmaTel C-Major Audio (soundcard)
Sample rate 44100
Bitrate: 22 – or 16 don´t matter
Buffers 16 or 8 don´t matter
And the call this SKYPE-LADY to check everything is working!
Now you will be able to record a SKYPEcall in both ends…. I hope?
Happy Streaming..................... your next goal........
- encoder – sandbox A: MP3: 64kb/s, 44.1 kz Stereo
- encoder – sandbox B. MP3: 24kb/s, 22.1 kz Mono
Password: ........ Ask Jeff about the password for Sandbox A
Password: ........ Ask Jeff about the password for Sandbox B
Ask Jeff about the password for Sandbox a and B
Or alternative: Use SAM Broadcasting (leave this out if you want - but it´nice software :-)
Config-> Audio Mixer pipeline-> Voice FX desitation-> Encoders
Encoders. Same settings as in Simpel cast
+ rightklick encoders->select source->Soundcard-> SigmaTel C-Major Audio (your soundcard)
Now you will be able to stream to sandbox A and B…. I hope?
If you se any mistakes - of better settings i would like a comment!
My only problem - still - is a very silent USB-MIC compared with the Skype Lady!
