Welcome to Windows 7 Forums. Our forum is dedicated to helping you find support and solutions for any problems regarding your Windows 7 PC be it Dell, HP, Acer, Asus or a custom build. We also provide an extensive Windows 7 tutorial section that covers a wide range of tips and tricks.
I am in the process of producing a series of 'Introduction to Windows 8" video tutorials. They are mainly for the members of my computer club. But if Shawn finds them to be worthy, I will post them on our Windows 8 forum too.
With the recording I had the hardest time with the audio. It would play well on my system but be hardly audible on any other system. And that I only found out after I had already produced 6 (of 10 planned) chapters.
I thought they were all good for the bin and 3 days of work down the drain. But then I had the idea of upping the dB with Format Factory which seems to have done the trick. Before I go any further, I just want to make sure that the audio is in fact audible on any system.
So if you please could play the Youtube link of one chapter below (full screen is best) and let me know how you hear the audio. Thank for your help.

Thanks guys. Looks like I salvaged my hard work. I sent a mail to the owners of the capture program (WMCapture) which I bought years ago to ask for advice. I never had a problem before, but their new version (V6), which is actually very nice, is giving me those problems. Maybe I am only missing a setting.

With the default YouTube settings (Full Volume), and our Gateway DX4831-01e volume at (30%) it sounds good.
At any percentage above that I start to pick up a rushing sound like water falling over a rapids.
I hear this:
We have Realtek High Definition Audio, and the two stock speakers that shipped with the DX48.
Some personal history;
I was born deaf in my right ear, and every hearing test I have had over the years has come to the conclusion that I hear the lower range of sounds. If I remember correctly I can hear as low as 180Hz I could find my chart if you needed it.
If that is your voice in the tutorials it is a pleasing narration.

A Favor: Firefox 4.0b4 Testers Someone contacted me on Twitter indicating that their browser froze/locked up when attempting to view my blog. The person said they are using Firefox 4.0b4.
Would someone using the Firefox 4 beta mind checking to see if they have any problems when accessing Security Garden
If so, any idea...
beta testers Microsoft please add us to the list of beta testers :):):) for windows 7 for the next release.
you can be assured once you release it to the general public this will be one of the main sites they come to to get help with any problems they get.
so how about letting us get started now
