Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Can't record clear sounding video on either my mini or my laptop.

\015 I'm trying to post my first personal video, and I can't get a clear sounding video produced from either my Acer mini with built-in webcam, or the webcam I purchased and installed on my toshiba laptop. Both produced video that is fine, but the sound is horrible. Even if I use a headset. There is extreme background ''fuzz''. I even tried plugging in an external microphone and had the same problem, so I know I'm missing something...Help!\015

Answers :

A better idea is to use a digital camera with sound, switch to video record and make your video with that then copy that AVI file to your PC. But if you really want to use the PC make sure that your Audio source is selected in the recording devices section of audio properties as Microphone, then turn off mic boost. Slowly bring up your mic volume with the headphones attached until you can hear yourself clearly. Cranking it up too far will result in over-modulation and distortion. And finally, remember that most microphones included with laptops and Desktop PC's are cheap hetrodyne models with limited filtering and cheap plastic domes for audio pickup. The more you pay the better they get.

Something worth mentioning here.
I have actually had success recording with Cheap headphones on the Mic port before. Not headphone mic combos, but the actual Headphones. This gives you an idea of the sensitivity of these pickups.
