      Hi,

      I tried to use simplescreenrecorder on antiX but I’m not able to record sound (I have built in mic).
      Tested on two laptops, using live-USB.
      I tried to change input devices in simplescreenrecorder but it won’t help.
      I’ve installed PulseAudio but it haven’t help either.

      What do you think? Is there something I should install?

          Might want to start screen recorder in terminal and see if any messages say what is missing. You can post that output here using the code button on the reply taskbar. I know. It looks invisible.

              Pretty new laptop. If me. I’d start with newer kernel.

              Synaptic can handle that kernel install also. I always recommend doing

              sudo apt update

              Before launching either/or. Cli package installer or Synaptic GUI package installer. After the new kernel install. I am hoping other members will chime in here. Because I quit long ago doing screen recordings

                Thanks. I’ve updated kernel, no success though.
                Moreover, I had the same problem on new and old (ca. 2008) laptop.

                Or maybe it is because I’m using live-USB? However webcam is working OK, so I don’t know why the mic is not.

                In the output of simplescreenrecorder I spotted the

                [PulseAudioConnect] Error: Could not connect! Reason: Connection refused
                It is possible that your system doesn't use PulseAudio. Try using the ALSA backend instead.
                

                So I reinstalled pulseaudio from command-line. Then searched the web and found () that I can try
                plulseaudio -k and pulseaudio --start and sudo pulseaudio --system -D To start daemon.

                Now simplescreenrecorder is NOT showing pulseaudio error but still I’m not able to record sound.

                I’ve played with pulseaudio settings and increased value on the Input slider (volume?).
                Now it records some white noise.

                  There are some issues with simplescreenrecorder and pulseaudio.
                  http://github.com/MaartenBaert/ssr/issues/794

                  You could try vokoscreen as alternative.
                  It’s in de repositories.
                  Vokoscreen has an option to choose the audio driver and works fine with the default alsa driver.

                    Thanks smartduck. He can also try installing pulse-audio I guess from antixcc>system>package installer> type in pulse in r/h search box .

                    Just mentioning it because of his newer gear. I guess to add alsa to backend in streamtuner maybe.

                    Go into .config. Go find streamrecorder folder. If not there.

                    sudo updatedb

                    then

                    locate screenrecorder

                    Folder will show location there.

                    Go inside. Change out pulseaudio entries in script to alsa. Always making a backup 1st in case you screw the pooch. Like backup the whole folder.

                    Thanks for joining in again To be honest. Your way sounds easier.

                      I tried vokoscreen, but it also don’t record sound (using ALSA).

                      I also installed Pulseaudio with package installer. I think it don’t work because SSR started from terminal alerts about absence of Pulseaudio

                      [PulseAudioConnect] Error: Could not connect! Reason: Connection refused

                      @rokytnij, I’ve updated the system.
                      In the ~/.config there is no SSR folder.

                      I think I have general problem with sound recording. Output works.

                        with some sound issues we found adding an .asound.conf in home helped, you may well need to modify depending
                        on your hardware. Mine looks like this with Intel HD Audio.
                        On this box I had endless issues with my Audigy card and in the end had to remove it.
                        Pulse audibly and visibly distorted sound. Visible with Oscilloscope.. so never again.

                        #Substitute N with a small integer, 0 for your first sound card (which is the default),
                        #1 for your second, and so on.

                        pcm.!default {
                        type hw
                        card 0
                        }

                        ctl.!default {
                        type hw
                        card 0
                        }

                          Thanks, I tried and created the same file as yours (I really don’t know what else could I write there ;) I’m bad with system files).
                          Unfortunately it still don’t work.

                          What do you think, does earlier version of antiX would work better?
