Video Capture using VLC ??

Leifer

Senior Member
I'm trying to capture a video (youtube), and use a portion of it, to demonstrate an idea on the forum here..
(I can edit the capture in another program)

I have VLC, open source media player, and it can capture video.
It works for me, but does not record the audio of the captured video.
I believe it may have to do with my add-on soundcard settings (??) (RME)
I have the audio codec set for "mpeg".
Video codec set for "mpeg4/AAC"

Several instructional videos are online, especially on YouTube....

and...

I don't know if anyone can help, but I thought I'd ask anyways.
.....or if anyone has a favorite method for capturing video....and or capturing the live desktop, on a Windows7 PC.

It is likely a sound configuration issue on your machine Leifer. I like VLC but only for quick basics, it seems to have problems with most of my home videos so never got into it's finer workings. I use a firefox add-on http://www.downloadhelper.net/ for ripping videos off youtube etc. Then you can edit them in your fav editor?

The RME card, it is a semi-professional multichannel card with ASIO drivers I guess? If it has a routing mixer like I have on my EMU1212m you should make sure that the channel you record is routed to the standard wave driver of Windows, and not routed any other way, for instance to an ASIO driver. If you are using ASIO only, then you might have to check in VLC if you can select an corresponding ASIO port.

I use the program that comes with the Nvidia GTX-750 videocard I bought recently. If you already have a recent Nvidia card (600/700 series) you have shadowplay on it. It records very well and you do not have to worry about sound, as the videocard also handles the audio and captures anything you are hearing via HDMI output. It records it directly from the card, so there are no noticable framedrops. It also captures the desktop now. You can even use a live cam and insert that with your game or desktop capture. Very well done.

A new card would cost you around 90 bucks for a GTX 650. A good capture program like playclaw is 39. I would surely go for the graphics card (if you are going to do a lot of capturing that is), as you do not have to mess around with codecs and such. You can capture in a couple of quality modes and be done with it.

Here's an example of me and my son playing Borderlands 2 co-op while recording with Shadowplay. It recorded in full 1080p at 60 frames a second without a problem.

I suspect the RME audio card....I'll investigate.
I have a NVidia GTX 560 vid card. I'll look for related/included apps there, out of curiosity.
