12: How to avoid hearing my voice when I talk through a microphone and I'm recording with "system and microphone audio" both enabled at the same time?

Why my browsers could no longer access the internet?

If your computer has installed some fireware software, please add the Streaming Video Recorder into the firewall's white-list.

The Streaming Video Recorder will change the HTTP proxy to monitor all HTTP traffic from Internet to your computer and detect video file then download it.

After you launching Streaming Video Recorder and starting to record video, the program will register itself as the system proxy for Microsoft Windows Internet Services (WinInet), especially, the HTTP layer used by Internet Explorer and other browsers, or many other products like Microsoft Office. You can check that whether Streaming Video Recorder has correctly intercepted requests by checking the Proxy Settings dialog. From the Internet Explorer main menu >Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Setting, and finally click Advanced.

Proxy settings

So if you close the Streaming Video Recorder incorrectly (e.g. Force shutdown, kill the Streaming Video Recorder process, Crash…), many of your software may could not access the internet any more.

In this case, there are two simple ways for you to retrieve internet access, as following:

1. Run the Streaming Video Recorder again, enable the Video Recorder, and then close the program correctly.

2. From the Internet Explorer main menu, click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > click LAN Setting, and uncheck the ‘Use a proxy server for you LAN’ option.

IE settings

Usually, if you close the Streaming Video Recorder correctly, there aren’t any problems of your internet access.

Why Streaming Video Recorder won’t open after upgrade?

If you are using the older version, we recommend you to download the latest full version from our website: After downloading, uninstall the old version and then install the latest version.

Everything is captured correctly, but why some videos (AVI video files) become a black box while capturing

The Streaming Video Recorder couldn’t record the DirectX Output currently. So if you are using Mplayer or VLC, you can change the output driver to Direct3D or OpenGL (gl).

MPlayer Settings

VLC Player Settings

Crashes after running Streaming Video Recorder, it crashes when loading as shown


This error was caused by incorrect registering components.

So just download the latest version and reinstall it, it will work well.

Note: If you are using windows 7 or Vista, please right click on icon of the program, then click Run as administrator.

Why the Microphone option is disabled?

Microphone Disabled

1. Make sure that the Microphone is connected and in use.

2. Right click on the sound icon in the Notification Area and select ‘Recording devices’.

3. Set the Microphone to default recording device:

I am trying to capture a video using the record screen feature, but is there a recommended site to help me understand what the setting control and how to determine “best” settings?

We recommend you to use these settings, as shown:

Recording Settings

Note: Higher Video Bit-rate will get a higher video quality but a bigger video size.

How to record YouTube HD videos?

Download YouTube HD videos is so easy. Copy and Paste the YouTube video URL and then click Add to Download, the Streaming Video Recorder will ask you to choose your preferred video format to download, then you can select HD video format and click OK.

Couldn't download videos from with video URL?

Because the has changed video transfer method, so we would suggest you to enable the Advanced Video Detector to download it.

Watch the video in the built-in web browser, and then the Streaming Video Recorder will detect the video stream (rtmp/rtmpe) and download it automatically.

And then you can right-click on the downloading item, and select Play while it is downloading.

Capturing online videos from Firefox

If you couldn't record videos in Firefox, please check the network proxy in the firefox.

  1. Start Firefox.
  2. Click Firefox -> Options
  3. Switch to Network tab, Click Settings.
  4. Make a note of the settings on this screen, adjust the settings to the values shown in the following image. Choose the Use system proxy settings

Why there is no sound while screen recording?

If you are using Windows Vista/7 and no sound has been recorded, please do these steps to fix it.

  1. Right click on the sound icon in the Notification Area and select 'Playback devices'.
  2. Is there a Apowersoft_AudioDevice in the Sound window?
    If there is no Apowersoft_AudioDevice, I would suggest you to re-install it.
    During installation, if the windows ask you "Would you like to install this device software?", please click Install button to install it.
    The Virtual Sound Card is an important component for recording audio what you hear, so if it was not installed, the program will not run normally.

    After installation, please right click on the sound icon in the Notification Area and select 'Playback devices', you will find there is a Apowersoft_AudioDevice.
  3. Start recording, does it record sound now? If it doesn't work still, switch to Playback tab, if the default sound playback device is not Speakers(Apowersoft_AudioDevice), please change it to Speakers(Apowersoft_AudioDevice) and then click OK button.
  4. I think it will work well now.
If you are using Windows XP and no sound has been recorded, please do these steps to fix it.
  1. Right-click on the volume icon and select "Adjust Audio Properties"
  2. Switch to Audio tab, if the default sound playback device is not Apowersoft_AudioDevice, please change it to Apowersoft_AudioDevice and then click OK button.
  3. Start to record.
Note: please start recording first and then playback video or music you want to record, if you want to record live video, please restart your web browser and then playback it, or the sound will not be recorded.

Why the speaker icon shows black with an X next to it, and nothing records?

When I click the ON button in Record, the speaker icon shows black with an X next to it, and, of course, nothing records.
I have changed the speaker icon as you have directed, but that does not change the Record On button, even after rebooting and re-installing.
What is curious is that it worked earlier today with no problems whatsoever.

This symbol indicate now is silent(no sound from computer speakers or microphone).
You can disable the "Automatically skip silent passages in the process of recording" option to fix it.

How to avoid hearing my voice as I talk though a microphone, and I'm recording with "system and microphone audio" both enabled at the same time?

If you want to record both system sound and microphone sound, you will hear your voice while recording, currently there is no good idea to resolve it.
But there are some suggestions to reduce the echo:

  1. Lower volume of speaker
  2. Move the microphone further away from the speaker
  3. If using a laptop microphone and speakers, try a headset instead.
  4. Since laptop microphone and speakers are fixed close together, they will usually cause echo and feedback.

    When I use the screen recorder, the video runs too fast while it is being recorded and also when I watch the finished video.

    How can I make it run normal speed? Also, the video quality is choppy.

    Ada Reed June 10th, 2015

    Hello, thanks for your feedback, actually we are trying to improve our program. But if you want to record screen in a more smooth and professional way, you are suggested to use Apowersoft Screen Recorder Pro.

    So far, I have been unable to have both sound and visuals with Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder. Either I see the images but no sound or I hear the sound and have a black screen. I checked my Mac and Firefox settings but in multiple tries with streaming videos and webinars, I have not been able to get BOTH audio and video. All settings seem to be fine. Wondering if it was a waste of money…

    When I try to record online conference calls or online presentations (e.g. through Webex or GotoMeeting), then I am having trouble with the audio. The software is capturing the video correctly, in addition to the audio coming out from my microphone, but not the audio of the other participants on the call. Also note that I am using a headset.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as I need to record the sessions both video, and the audio coming from all parties (I have already selected the option of Audio input as Microphone + system sound).

    Ada Reed November 10th, 2014

    1. Right-click on GoToMeeting icon in system tray area, and then select Preferences.
    2. And then change the Speaker device to Speakers (Apowersoft_AudioDevice).

    Streaming Video Recorder is causing me to lose internet access.

    I last used this program a few weeks ago and it worked then. I just tried it now and it blocks internet access from my PC. If I close Streaming Video Recorder then I get access to the internet again.

    Specifically, I don’t have a problem when I first open it up. However, when I turn on the “advanced video recorder (support RTMP)” I lose access. If I disable the advanced feature, then I again have internet access.

    I know that when I enabled the advanced feature before it would open up a window. I don’t remember what it said, but I’d just close the window and the recorder would work fine. In the window that pops up now, here is the message that I see (it may be different than what it said before): “Navigation to the webpage was canceled. What you can try: retype the address” In the URL field for the open window is “help”.

    If you could help me with this problem I’d greatly appreciate it.


    Jae Kim

    Ada Reed May 16th, 2014

    Hello, the how to guide page simply guides you to get internet access, simply go to menu >Tools >Internet Options >Connections > LAN Setting, and then uncheck “use a proxy for LAN”. Hope it does work.

Simply click on “Record Screen” on the main interface of the program, and then choose input audio source and region for recording.

    Hi! I wanted to do screen capture but everytime it says “an extern component has triggered an exception” (Mine is German version and the original phrase is “Eine externe Komponente hat eine Ausnahme ausgelöst”). What happened here?

    It used to work. Does it have something to do with my upgrade to Win 8.1? Or that i installed a new graphic card?


    Ada Reed January 22nd, 2014

    This error was caused by some important components that could not be registered as system file.

    So you just need to re-install it to fix, but if re-installation still could not resolve it, please download the DLL file from our server and unpack it, and then right-click on reinstall.bat file, and then select Run as administrator to reinstall the DLL files.

    Im am not able to auto download and record from the above traing web site. I am attempting to save training videos we paid for and will only be available to me for streaming for 30 days. I am able to record using the screen capture function ok but am frustrated that upon completion of the recording I discovered I must be at the computer to manualy hit the stop recording button to end the recording process. Is there any setting that can auto accomplish the task to hit the stop recording button after the video is not streaming any longer? If not is there a function I can use to edit/remove the blank screen recording that has been recorded at the end of the recorded video. I can’t always be available to babysit the process to the end to hit the stop button.

    Two choices for you:
    Solution1: Screen Recording Suite have options to create schedule recording task where you set the end time to record your screen.

    Solution2: After you finish the recording task, and you want to remove unwanted part, use edit functions in this program, trim your video and remove the part that you don’t want.

    Hi everybody, since a few days, i am not be able to download/record videos from youtube. The program is always recording : 1.7 mib for any videos i tried to record, always the same size 1.7 mib.

    I was so proud of your product since the day i got it, but for some reason i do not understand, recently, the program refuse to work well.

    What can i do to get the program working well again ? I can supply some print screens to you if you want to see what i mean.

    Thank you for reading.

    I am using evaluation version of this software. You have nice interface and very useful converter option too. But i found that your software cant download RMTP videos from Youtube. But on your webpage you mentioned that it does support RMTP protocol. Then why i am not able to download RMTP videos???
    Then I used screen recording option and it worked great :). I have a suggestion. Why dont you offer Start time and End time selection option for screen recording?. So, we can capture the screen for particular time. Thank you

    Ada March 8th, 2012

    We are preparing for the new version which will support hulu, cbs, netfix and other similar video sites. It will released in the end of this month, then our program will support 95% video sites, if use screen recorder, 100% video sites can be recorded.
    Our Screen Recorder program support create schedule recording task.
    Learn more about it from here:

    I started to try this program out and at first i couldn’t get any sound but then i got the update but sound still didn’t work so i tried it 2 or 3 times and the sound eventually worked but it was always out of sync with the video, but i seen the screen recording sweet and tried the free trial and that is a far better program the scheduled task is really good aswell but when i use that again the sound is out of sync, this is something i might purchase but only if it is working perfectly first, i am using the k-lite codec pack and watch everything on media player classic, so if anyone can help with the sound problem it would be appreciated

    Aaron-Apowersoft December 7th, 2011

    We are aware of this issue and I sincerely regret the inconvenience it has caused you. Our technicians are working to resolve this matter.
    Sometimes there are lag when sound from Virtual Soundcard to Real Soundcard when using screen recorder.
    This problem will be fixed soon.

    10th Dec,
    Note:We have successfully fixed this issue and release new version of Screen Recorder, your video and audio will not be out of sync in new version, because each computer is different in CPU speed, you can even set the audio lag time yourself.

    It doesn’t work on this website:
    No bubbles showed up…no detection.

    Can you find a way to record this website? and I also suggest you put in the function of “recording closed caption if available”. I know another software does but that one can’t function well on my PC, so I wish your software can also have this nice add-on. Much appreciation if you can solve my problem :-)

    Ada December 1st, 2011

    I checked this website, yes, streaming video recorder can’t detect video file on this page, we will test and fix in next version.

    But you can get these videos with Screen Recorder in this program, it can record any video playing on your screen with audio inside.

    Record Video with Screen Recorder

    Stace December 2nd, 2011


    Thanks for your help!

    I’ve just tried the Screen Recorder option, but it comes with 2 problems that can’t be ignored.

    First, I don’t watch the video while recording, so I switched to another windows, but then I found out the recorder didn’t stay with the video screen but switched just as I did, which forces me to not just have to keep the video playing(which is OK), but I have to stay on the same windows. That’s too impossible for me.

    Second, I can hardly hear the sound of the recorded video no matter what I did, either switching among the 3 options of Audio Input from “system sound” to “both system sound and microphone”, or either plugging in or out of headset. None of them would generate a distinguishable human voice. I have made sure the volume is at maximum on both video and PC system. Besides, when I started recording, my PC began to generate a high-pitched machine sound, and mostly continued until I silenced my PC or shut down the entire program.

    Those problems are really serious, is there a way to fix them? Thank you.

    Aaron-Apowersoft December 5th, 2011

    Dear Stace,
    For the first point of your problem when you are using Screen Record, yes, I agree that’s the disadvantage when using Screen Recorder, you have to stay on that window and playing the video while recording.

    For your second problem, it is the screen recorder in this program; we need to update the screen recorder to latest version. We do release new version of Screen Recording Suite, but We have not renew these software bounded with screen recorder, we will do this soon.
    Please check and download latest screen recorder software to have a try:
    Screen Recorder 2.4 Released
    Note: If you have order streaming Video Recorder, We will give you this software for free.

    Anyway, we will try our best to support capture and download video directly from the video address you mentioned. 😐

    I downloaded the evaluation version yesterday and to my surprise I was able to get video downloaded quite easily. Nicely with voice and picture.

    Then I ordered the registered 2.4.1 version and the problems started.

    1. I am running XP on several machines. Some of them have IE6.0 installed and some have IE 8.0. If I browse to the Video site manually, I can view the video I wish to download.
    But as soon as I try to use my Streaming Video Recorder ver. 2.4.1 I get error “Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close”
    So three different XP machines, IE 6.0 and 8.0, all return this same error.

    2. If I try to use “Record Screen” feature, I can get the video saved, but without voice. This I have tried to get down both with IE 8.0 and Firefox 3.6. Voice will never get stored. My sound card is Realtek AC-97.

    I have made some quick tests also with Win 7 version, but the voice does not come down in there either. That machine has some problem with sound, but I wonder if that affects Video with Sound downloading also?

    I still have that one snippet downloaded with evaluation version, and it has voice included. All my attempts with registered version and voice have failed.
    Any suggestions?


    Ada November 28th, 2011

    There is no difference between Trial and Full Version. I advice you uninstall all software first and then install the new version with your key code to have a try.
    If there are still any problem, our technical have got your log file to analysis that.

    Ada October 7th, 2011

    There are must be something wrong with the video, may not supported by built-in video player.
    I advice you covert this video to other format first, then trim and crop this video.

    Anonymous October 11th, 2011

    Thanks for the reply Larry, unfortunately, I have tried it with several videos. The built-in video player stopped working on my PC…I have converted videos in other format, but when I try to open the built in player, the video doesn’t play, so I can’t see where I need to trim or crop. Any advise? Streaming Video support people have not been helpful and have not even replied to my emails. Thanks!

    Aaron-Apowersoft October 17th, 2011

    After you convert video to AVI or other formats, please remove the file in your convert tap and re-added the file you have converted(avi or other file type, not flv format) into convert tap and edit the video,
    I guess you are still using the original video file.

    If you still not able to trim and crop, it may caused by your windows 7 aero.
    If you are using windows 7, please disable aero and try again.
    #How to disable aero in windows 7:
    1. Right click the Desktop
    2. Click Personalize
    3. Under “Basic and High Contrast Themes”, click “Windows 7 Basic”

    #How to enable aero inwindows 7:
    1. Right click the Desktop
    2. Click Personalize
    3. Under ‘Aero Themes’, click ‘Windows 7′

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Your stream recorder is an excellent program. However, there are some quirks such as it lost file saving directory names and says error after continue, it allow re-key in file location data. Also instead saved file as a number, why not use windows 7 that one can save as and grab the youtube’s original name so that one need not copy the youtube title and re-edit the numbered file name??? :roll:

    I am recording a video now of one of my freinds being interviewed. It is a UStream video. She is in only part of the video – about five minutes out of an hour-long recording. How do I record only the part of the video in which she appears?

    Ada September 29th, 2011

    1. Use latest version==>record screen video to record part of the video.
    2. Use built-in video converter trim function to get the part of the video you want.

    Hope this will help you!

    Streaming Video Recorder does not work anymore with youtube (the whole reason I purchased it). It used to a few weeks ago. If I look at the log while recording, it lists an HTML error (404?) page not found at youtube. I’m guessing youtube has changed something in its interface that SVR was expecting and now SVR doesn’t work. I wonder if we can get a patch?

    I should add some technical info about my system. It’s an HP with a duel core AMD CPU and runs Vista 32. This system has been a bitch. I’ve tried about 12 SMART programs and only one worked. Very few streaming audio recorders work. And now I’m having problems with video. Not all sites. YouTube isn’t really a problem. Hulu is. I should add that I’m running a hostlist that blocks ad sites, so maybe I should try disabling that.
