I can not capture video with audio simultaneously with Snagit. Plz help.2014-04-30 08:54 #6
First of all, make sure your Microphone is highlighted under the “Options” tab.
If you have done this on Snagit, but the problems still exist. Go to “Start” > “Control Panel” > “Sound and Audio Devices” > “Audio” tab, and make sure that your sound card is set as Default Device. Click “Apply” then “OK”.
