Hi everyone, I've been trying all week to record a vid. for youtube. I'm using pinnacle 9.4 and 10.8, headset hooked up to soundblaster Audigy, and USB 2.0 webcam. I thought my problems might have something to do with the fact that the webcam captures sound as well as video, but I believe that nearly all of them do anyway. The audio IS capturing from my headset, not the cam. All settings seem to be right ... I've tried lowering the quality to nothing in Pinnacle, but no joy. I've tried MJPEG and MPEG2 ( the only options available in Pinnacle ) but as soon as I capture the frames start dropping like crazy. On playback, I sound like an Alien! Just to summarize the system: Compaq Evo D3D Pentium 4 / 1.6ghz / 1 gb RAM / 500 gigabyte hard drive / 650 gig (USB) external Now I have a pinnacle capture card with two firewire ports, but I don't see any audio in or anything. On paper this should work, but it's been messing up on me all week. Any help much appreciated, as always. Cheers, Tony.
