ExtApp/Capture (VirtualDub)
« on: March 13, 2011, 09:19:39 AM »
I am trying to run external video capture and I have selected CaptureCardWindows from the option, I have audio jack connected to my soundcard in and I can hear it.

But as soon as I run signageplayer and as soon as virtualdub starts it auto mutes sound and I can see Master Volume window tick appears on the line-in. I can see TV but no sound, I can manually un-tick it and sound comes back but on next timeline it auto mutes sound again.

Even if I start Virtualdub from C:\Program Files\SignagePlayer\win32\VirtualDub it mutes sound every time.

Time lines with no EXTApp/Capture sound comes back any idea why is this happening?

We dropped support for VDub about a year ago in favor of Aver MediaCenter

We have the capability to connect any S-Video, Composite, Component or HDMI / HD source (satellite, cable, security cameras etc) via our PCI-E capture card.
Check this mediaTV link out:

and also be sure to watch this video:

It works GREAT in High Definition 1920x1080

Thanks for your replay, I have decided to scrap VirtualDub and decided to upgrade to AverMedia Capture device
I am using zotac GF9300-K-E motherboard and it doesn?t have PCI-E slot
Will this USB capture device work with Aver Media Centre
If not do you know any other USB capture device which is compatible with AVerMediaCentre SD will do not bothered about HD

I know mediaTV external will work but is also 145 GBP which is bit out of my budget
