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. 5.10.0.0.4255 (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

 

Open Skype

Settings: Tools->Settings->Sound

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->

 

Open Audacity

Settings->EDIT-Settings->

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)

Buffer: 100

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........

 

Open Simplecast:

Open ENCODERS

  1. encoder – sandbox A: MP3: 64kb/s, 44.1 kz Stereo
  2. encoder – sandbox B. MP3: 24kb/s, 22.1 kz Mono

Server settings:

Sandbox A
70.84.34.202
Port: 8004
Password: ........ Ask Jeff about the password for Sandbox A


http://webcastacademy.net:8004/admin.cgi
--------------
Sandbox B

70.84.34.202
Port: 8006
Password: ........ Ask Jeff about the password for Sandbox B


http://webcastacademy.net:8006/admin.cgi

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!

I wanted to attach a screenshot - but where does this interface allow me to add an attachment?

Briefly: I connect to Shout out, I enter userid and pwd, I right click and switch the encoder on - and I get an error 100 message.

This looks really useful and I will follow it like a recipe. I am sure I have Nordic origins!
