Recording phone messages on my computer

Does anyone have experience in recording phone messages from an answering machine to a computer? I think I have the instructions but I don't know where to get the cord to connect my phone to my computer or what it is called.

Thanks

How To Create and Send Video Mail for Free


Today anyone with a webcam can quickly and easily create and send video messages for free. You don't have to record videos with expensive equipment, and you don't have to download software. Best of all no expertise is required. If you can create and send text email you can send video mail.


Most people believe that sending videos means recording very large files with a camcorder, and trying to attach it to an email. It usually doesn't work due to email file attachment size limits. mailVU.com is one solution that doesn't require camcorders or file attachments. They have a free video mail service that doesn't require a software download, and it doesn't require a user account. I tried it and put together this step-by-step process for creating your first video mail.


What do you need for video mail?
  • Computer (PC, MAC, Linux all work)
  • Webcam
  • Microphone, either built-in to your webcam or laptop, or external headset
  • Broadband Internet connection


Begin by opening any browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) and going to http://mailVU.com. You will be prompted by the following request to allow access to your webcam. Select Allow.

Now you should be able to see yourself on the left side under Live Camera. If you don't see yourself click on the drop down list of cameras and select the one that works for you. On the Mac it is typically called USB Webcam. Note that until you record a message the deletion options and email option is grayed out at the bottom of the screen.

Click the red Record button above your image to start the 1 minute recording session. This button will change to Stop after you click it, a notification will appear that recording is in process, and a timer counts down from 1 minute. When done click the red Stop button.


Now that the recording is made the information at the bottom of the screen is available to use. You may play back your message before sending it to someone. To play it back simply click the green Play button above your image. Your recording will now play in the right side window while you still see yourself live in the left side Live Camera window.

If you want to record over your message, click the red Record button again to overwrite it. When you are happy with your recording decide if you want to use an auto deletion function at the bottom.

The default deletion time frame is 30 days, but you can change it to anything between 1 and 30 days. And you could also specify the video to be deleted after a certain number of views. If both are checked then whichever event happens first will destruct the video mail.


You can now click Send this as a Video Mail and you will have the following screen to populate:

You fill in the email address fields, and you have the option of adding a text message to your video mail. You can copy yourself if you click the box at the bottom. When done click Send Email. Congratulations! You have now sent your first video mail!


The user will receive an email which is less than 25kb in size that includes a picture of you linking to your video message. They click on your picture and click play and they will be able to hear and see you. To record a video message back to you they can follow this same process.


By using this process anyone can quickly and easily send video messages to anyone in the world.

How do I switch off the microphone to stop the speakers feeding back on my laptop. And how to set the levels when I am recording, to stop feedback.


I think it won't be possible to get rid of the feedback and quality will be poor when recording this way. Try software like Audacity and set the audio source to record directly from the sound card. The input device should be set to "Windows WASAPI" for Windows and output set to a loopback device.

If the acer 5532 has a microphone - where is it and how does it work. Is it possible to record live music?


Hi there.

The 5532 should have a microphone as it has a webcam in it. If not there is a microphone jack at the left side of it.

If you want to test your microphone there is an application called sound recorder. It is located in Start - all programs - accessories.

You can change the properties for the microphone if you right click on your speaker icon at the bottom right of your task bar (bottom right of the screen) and click on recording devices. This is assuming your computer has Windows 7 which I think it does. In this screen it will show all connected devices you can use for recording.

A recording application you can try is called Audacity. You will need to google it. It is a music recording program that is free. It isn't the easiest to use though. If you want to record live music you can use the sound recorder to record it as well.

If you have any other questions leave a comment and I can get back to you.

How to detect microphone in laptop


Hi,

I think it would be better if we check that the built-in microphone is working on your machine.

Internal microphone

The internal microphone is located near the top of the notebook LCD display or near the bottom of the LCD display near the hinge. Use the following best practices to better capture sound with the microphone.

-Adjust the notebook PC screen to place the microphone in the best direction for receiving sound.

-Speak directly into the microphone. Avoid speaking away from the microphone.

-When using the internal microphone, choose an environment without background noise.


Testing the record function on the notebook PC

1. Click Start , then Programs , Accessories , Entertainment , and then Sound Recorder .
2. Click Record (the red dot) and speak into the microphone.
3. When you are finished recording, click Stop (the gray rectangle).
4. To play back the recording, click Play (the gray arrow pointing to the right).

If happens that the recording with the microphone have no sound we have check the settings.

Checking microphone settings

1. Click Start , then Programs , Accessories , Entertainment , and then Volume Control .
2. A Volume Control or Master Volume window opens.
3. Click Options , and then Properties .
4. Select Recording , and make sure Microphone is selected.
5. Click OK . The Volume Control window should change to a Recording Gain Control window.
6. Click Options again and then click Advanced Controls . If Advanced Controls is unavailable, then an alternate microphone is not available. Proceed to the next series of steps.
7. Remove the check next to Alternate microphone , click Close , and test the microphone. If there is still no sound, continue to the next step

Ensuring the correct recording device is selected

1. Access sound properties:

-In Windows XP, to access the sound control panel applet, click Start , then Control Panel . Click Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .

-In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , and Control Panel . Double-click Sounds and Multimedia , or Multimedia . The Sounds and Multimedia Properties window opens.

2. Click the Audio tab.

3. Under Sound Playback , select the audio device that is installed on the computer (there should be only one).

4. Under Sound Recording , select the audio device that is installed on the computer. It should be the same as the listing under Sound Playback .

5. Click OK .

6. Close the Sound and Multimedia Properties window and test the recording.


Feel free to reply if happens the steps I've told you is not working. Hope it helps.

How to record music on ThinkPad!! Thanks


1) Turn on your mic 2) Start windows sound recorder 3) Start recording 4) Jam out on your instrument(s) 5) Stop recording 6) ... 7) Profit
In truth, this is a terrible device to record music on. You should look into getting a mixer (with as many tracks as you need) and a dedicated computer with a high quality sound card (M-Audio) is a good brand.
If you're thinking about making electronic music, look into FL Studio. http://flstudio.image-line.com/
More details would allow me to answer with more precision.

It is another Feature that is provided for your DVD burner harware device,(you will understand indepth once you come across some thing to use that feature on Your Own)


Second...does anyone know what burning software works best for this burner????
Nero is one of the Most commonly used Burners and there are Trial Versions available for Free for you to download and use it.
besides that you can try softwares like Roxio,SONIC and ay more...


Third...is it a DLA file I need, or firmware, or do I have to do something in Windows to fix this problem????
