    Firewire AND audio?????

    I have a question that I just can't get a straight answer to. Hopefully, you won't think that I'm a complete idiot.

    I just started working as a video chat host for an adult website. I have my camcorder (Sony DCR HC38) connected to my computer via an IEEE cable. I am able to broadcast/stream video onto the website without any problems, but I don't have any sound/audio.

    I have tried a stand alone mic connected to my computer via the regular mic jack. Additionally, I tried a headset/mic combo that came with a webcam that I previously purchased. I even tried hooking up said webcam via a USB port while using the camcorder in the hopes that the webcam would capture audio while my camcorder streamed the video.

    The manual that comes with the camcorder is vague on using the camera as a webcam. No one on the message board of the website I work for seems to be able to help. Sony customer support hasn't been any help. The only info I got from them is that IEEE does not support audio.

    What am I doing wrong? How can I make this work?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    No, this is not a IEEE394 issue.
    What kind of sw are you using ?

    Do a simple Webcam connected alone work well ?

    Yes, the webcam hooked up via USB

    works perfectly (audio and video).

    Not sure you have fixed the issue.

    If not, cam attached to IEEE394 must be opened by sw as DVCam video and DVCam audio; this using MSDirectShow filters.

    Of course this is out of your possibility if sw do it auto.

    Please let us know

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand

    cam attached to IEEE394 must be opened by sw as DVCam video and DVCam audio; this using MSDirectShow filters.

    Can you please tell me how to check to see if this is what's happening? What are MSDirectShow filters?

    If my software is doing it automatically, can I use a different software?

    Sorry to sound dense, but I'm really not good at this stuff.

    Thanks in advance!

    No problem PurdueGrad99.
    Indeed I wrote with no many details as well.

    You can check with LiveVista

    You have to switch on camera then:
    • settings
    • capture device settings
    • Video -> Microsoft DV
    • Audio -> auto.
    • Live -> Start

    Any change on settings requires exit and start LiveVista again

    Please let me know
