Removing and replacing battery seems to have resolved "sound issues" on my Dell Latitude D800

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2006-11-29 23:45

Wanted to share my experience of this afternoon regarding "audio issues" with my Dell Latitude D800 laptop. Out of nowhere I began having trouble with the sound on my laptop. The internal speakers weren't producing any sound -- no start-up/shut-down for Windows, or anything else -- and plugging in headphones led "white noise" but even that was extremely faint.

I went into the audio settings and everything seemed as it should be. Control Panel > System > Device Manager also indicated that everything was working as it should, although I still was unable to get any sound out of the machine.

One baby step

Webcast Academy - Tue, 2006-11-28 18:18
I at least have a quick recording of the SkypeLady and me. Just used Pamela - but at least it is a very minor baby step. It is just a simple mono recording. Now, onward.

Motivated to make things work...

Webcast Academy - Fri, 2006-11-24 14:10
Hi all, my podcast postings succeeded in attracting a special guest for my January webcast. Now the only hurdle to cross is actually recording and streaming b the last week in Jan! My grad semester ends in a week and I intend to devote mega hours making this all work for me. I hope to join the Sunday meeting this week. I've been having conflicts but as you know I've been listening in to the 2.0 show. I too have the sigma tell audio card and may attempt to do my next skypecast via my mac to see if it's any easier. Bottom line, I'll be 100% involved in about a week. Euro-minicast...great job! I enjoyed listening and may try to tune in on Thursday, at least as a listener in the chat room.

My Latest SoundCard News

Webcast Academy - Thu, 2006-11-23 02:06

I have reached the end of SigmaTel soundcard knowledge.  I happen to have the same issue on my laptop, which is my school machine, and my desktop, which is my home machine.  Both being Dell, both having SigmaTel soundcards.  Both not giving me the option of StereoMix for recording.  I have tried the suggested drivers on both machines.  When I updated the driver on the laptop it worked for about 5 minutes then the sound crashed and there was no sound at all.  I rolled back the driver, and was back to square one.  On the second try of updating the soundcard driver it worked for a few minutes, then crashed the sound.  I have had no luck with the desktop at all.

Need to stop here for a while, hope to get back later

Webcast Academy - Thu, 2006-11-23 01:33
SusNy, DK Dear friends, I am afraid I'll have to follow Bengt's example and leave this Academy class for now. First of all I need to make both ends meet in my private as well as my professional life. Then, I also regret not having the necessary technical skills for doing this - at least not without a huge lot of hard work which is not realistic for the time being. Second Life in education is something that I would want to explore in a more back leaned mode in my free time (when I'm not doing courses, exam work or writing on my own final). Anyway, who knows if there will be found easier and more handy solutions for webcasting in a near future, that even a not so techie like myself could handle.

I am over my head

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2006-11-22 01:06
I have just finished reading all the new blog posts. I still haven't even got the Skype lady recorded. I think I may be over my head for the time I have available. I am planning on sticking around and maybe I can find some open slots to work on this. I will continue to read what is happening with this very creative group. Keep up the good work everyone. Hope to post a success next time And I planned on joining the Webheads in January. Sure hope stuff slows down at work and home.

My progress (or lack thereof) to date

Webcast Academy - Tue, 2006-11-21 07:48
I cannot attend a meeting on Thursday (nor on Sunday) as I am in Germany for a long working weekend.  Webcasting has not crept to the top of my agenda yet, but rest assured that it will very soon (have been preparing for the German trip).  I am not sure that my set-up at home (from where I am most likely to webcast) is fast enough for webcasting.

More abut mini-Euro meeting on 15th. (?) Novemver 06 - Power Gramo recordingeuro

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2006-11-20 18:01

Jeff, I think, kindly forwarded my message about the Power Gramo recording I made (by oversight rathan design). It's about 70-80 minutes long and mostly of historical interest only - we did not achieve much at the meeting. I have converted it from ogg to MP3, QUESTION...

What now? Should I really upload it anywhere, and if "Yes"  where, how and how will those interested access it?    Dennis



I believe another Euro mini-meeting is planned for this week, though it has not been announced yet.  Thursday 19:00 'place' to be announced shortly.

Making screencast and converting to mp4.

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2006-11-20 17:07
I just recently have been experimenting with Camstudio but the videoformat is too large so i have been looking for a good converting software... I found Mediacoder which seem to cover several mediaformats and among them mp4. For you who want to make screencast maybe those software can come in handy...

About me missing out and my personal situation

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2006-11-20 15:58
I have already have learned alot and have met several new friends in this nice community that World Bridges and Webcast Acacdemy is. I though must sadly slow down this. I have recently lost 25% of my income and really need to find a way to somehow get it back... I probably have to start a company or something. Even though i have much knowledge about alot of things i have trouble getting someone to employ me... At the moment i started an online magazine about Photo for beginners hoping to get medias attention and maybe through that get some work... Since many of you work in schools it might be of intrest i used Wordpress open source blogging tool to create it. You can use wordpress for your school magazine too...
