I've been using Camtasia Studio 8 for quite a while now.
I've encountered a problem now. This happened almost a week ago. In the Recorded inputs category -> Audio -> Record System Audio, there's a small mute button next to this specific option, as shown in the picture below.
The microphone is working just fine, but it just won't record the system audio. This is happening for the first time, and I can't better place to post this problem, but here.
Thanks in advance!
Also the link to Virtual Audio Cable:
For those having this issue, am I understanding that everything with your system audio was working correctly and then one day it just became muted and you can no longer select that particular stream to record?
And, Camtasia Studio was working as expected, you were able to record system audio, but now you cannot and you have not installed a new trial version, a Camtasia update, or a new version of Camtasia that might have caused a conflict with your working version?
If this is the case, then it seems there was a system upgrade/update, a new software program installed, a driver updated or uninstalled, etc. that is somehow interfering with the connection to Camtasia Studio.
This kind of issue could be simple or complex and we do not have the ability to troubleshoot this in this forum.
To get the help you need, please see this article:
Under Control Panel > Sound > Recording tab I found that I had two microphones enabled. I kept my USB microphone enabled and disabled the Digital Audio Sound Blaster recording device that was listed and now I'm able to get my Camtasia Studio 7.1 to record the audio portion of my PowerPoint presentations.
