As far as I can tell, most people do not have that audio problem. So I do not know what to say.
Thanks Wolfgang. I downloaded the file but had to boost the sound level by 36DB in my video editor before I could listen to it comfortably. It must be some problem with my setup. I occasionally get this problem with audio in WMV files.

Anyway nice tutorial Wolfgang.

How long did you live in Germany before moving to Florida?
I lived in Germany all my life except for the 25 years I was assigned to other countries. Now I am only in the winter in Florida.

Since a couple of other people have that problem too, it must be that Expression 4 Encoder that does make it special. To Keith I have suggested to convert the .wmv to MP4 or AVI to see whether that helps. But then again, some other people have no problem at all (including all the systems in my house). Go figure.

I tried a straight conversion to MP4 with no improvement. It was only by extracting the sound and boosting it as described above that it became audible.

Hmm, I guess that means that I have to use another screen capture program in the future. Fortunately I have a small selection. This is really a poor performance of this $200 Microsoft Expressin Encoder 4. I will also have a look whether the sound can be boosted during the encoding phase.

I use CamStudio which produces high quality AVI but I don't know how good the sound is as I normally turn it off and use annotations instead. This is one of my videos.

That is a very nice tut (without sound though). But Camstudio costs $299 - doesn't it ??

No it's free CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software,however the editing was done in Cyberlink Power Director 10 which is not.

Keith, was just thinking. How did you actually produce this tut without an active system.
