View Full Version : How do i record sound from tv to pc ?
April 27th, 2002, 03:53
I dont have a microphone ( and the quality would be low if i used one ) But is there any other way to record sound from a tv to my pc ? I want to record the chatterbox channel radio conversation of GTA3 and send it to my friend.... Franando is so funny :D

you need a converter that will allow you to connect the composite leads to the line in jack on your soundcard.

.. or send you friend your ps2, and gta3. ;)

err Bgnome , can you make things clearer for me ? I have no idea what kind of converter i need.....:p
...and sending my friend my PS2 and GTA3 isnt a good idea, because he's not going to return it :D

use a cable that goes from the headphones or line out connection from your tv to the line in on your soundcard. Even better would be connecting directly from ps2 to pc, if possible (it probably is, with the right cables).

Or use the old fashion way, hook up a microphone and put it near the TV speakers

he already mentioned that he doesnt have one and the quality would be bad

I tried connecting the two via headphone and microphone jack didnt work , Ive tried doing that last time :(

should be headphone and line-in (not microphone) jack...and , make sure the volume is turned up on both tv and pc.

Also make sure that you higher the Line-in vol control form within wndows.

Bah. The blue jack right ? :p
Stupid me , thanks guys.
wait, will the recorder program that came with windows work ?

I think, but it has limited recording time afaik. Try wavestudio, cooledit or goldwave.
April 29th, 2002, 16:53
Ill try it now , thanks for the info :)
I need to turn my modem off....... cause my powerplant's not powerfull enough to support the monitor , the tower, the fan , the altec lansing , the tv , the ps2 , the modem and the lights all at the same time
April 29th, 2002, 17:01
turn the lights off ! :p

I needed some sort of light to do all the hardware settings :p
I tried , the sound came from my pc speakers alright, but the recorder didnt record anything.....some sort of settings must be done , probably. But even after I finish recording I wont be able to post the whole conversation here since it takes about 80MB in wav and 8 MB in mp3 format :(

you need to enable sound recording through linein.
May 1st, 2002, 14:36
I dont see the option anywhere......
mind to enlighten me abit ? :confused:
Oh, I recorded it at CD quality, resulting in a size of 8mb. I think ill be able to record a low quality one that takes about 2mb
edit: Nevermind , I found where it is :D

You can change recording options in the windows volume control.
(Menu: > start/programs/accesories/entertainment/volume control)
choose options, properties
choose adjust volume for recording. There you can select it.
oh, and try recording at 22khz 16 bit stereo.

Everything's working now :)
Should I try posting the file here ? I mean , I dont wanna waste this board's free space with crap......
May 1st, 2002, 15:32
i think itll be too large to accept anyhow.
May 1st, 2002, 16:23
You could encode that file to mp3. To make it nice and small, I think a bitrate of about 64 or 56 would be nice and it won't be very big.
May 2nd, 2002, 05:46
Well, youre right Bgnome. For some reason the file corrupts when I convert it to mp3 format , therefore its size cant go any smaller than 4MB. Oh well :p
