how to record from line-in in VLC?


Hello

I have input the sound from my TVcard into the line-in port of my soundcard. In VLC, I could view TV signal with both video and sound but when i click on "record" it only records video without the sound at all. When I view this in pulseaudio volume control, under the recording tab, there seems to be no application taking over when I click on record button under VLC. Yet if I start up gnome-recorder, I could capture the sound when I view TV with VLC and clearly under pulseaudio volume control I see recording application is that of gnome-recorder.

What's the deal here? How could I make sure under VLC it will record the sound?

Hello,

Have you checked the recording options within VLC's preferences? You might need to change the preferences for the input device within VLC. Let me know if everything is checking good or not.

Cheers,

Josh

Hi

I am using version 1.1.9 of VLC. The preference seems to be way different from older versions. I have been searching but don't seem to come upon anything resembling recording options.

Under Media -> Capture Device, you will be able to change the input device for recording. Under the available options, you should have something of either the jack audio server, alsa, etc, for what you are using on your system.
