I updated my version of MSCW, now it's fully compatible even
with Wary Puppy.

It comes with my custom /etc/init.d/10alsa.

Basically the most important thing it has is the Report
button which provides info that can be used to fix issues...


Fantastic, I have just downloaded it.

I hope to look at it tonight, have got to remove myself from my computer now, have other duties for most of the day!

I've updated the Wikka to link here http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SoundWizard

Is this wizard part of Woof CE?

Cool

PostPosted: Sat 05 Aug 2017, 12:38    Post subject: mscw & usb mic  

Hello

Have just bought a cheapo webcam off ebay and it comes with a usb mic which I've not encountered before.

I'm posting here because mscw (which is provided by woof-ce: /rootfs-skeleton/usr/bin/Multiple-Sound-Card-Wizard https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/blob/testing/woof-code/rootfs-skeleton/usr/bin/Multiple-Sound-Card-Wizard ) does not see the mic.....

alsamixer does see the mic

as does a webcam application on a website

but there's no controls showing in retrovol to allow the use of the usb mic or to set the levels.

Can anybody provide suggestions as to how to get this usb mic recognised and working - thanks

Various screen shots of mscw, alsamixer, webcam app, and retrovol attached.

Maybe:
webcam app microphone setting changed to the internal audio card instead of default.
Or any of the other settings.

Maybe in Retrovol.
Select and turn up rear mic.
Play with changes to Capture So.
Select and turn up Rear Mic Boost.

Does Pup-Sysinfo show the microphone under devices->

This had no effect?

Hi peebee,

With a webcam althought it is seen as a sound card you do not need to change anything in AlsaMixer.
You do not need to use MSCW.
Leave it as HDA NVidia if that is what you normally have set. If a person is speaking to you, you
want the audio to come from your normal source (eg line out to [amp] speakers/headphones/monitor speakers over HDMI.)
A webcam does not have a speaker.
It does have microphone but generally no volume control as AGC is used (Automatic gain control). It will do the best it can.

You do need to make the correct selections within the appear.in app.

If you are not being offered choices for the microphone within the app, click on the camera icon at the end of the address bar.
In the pop up window that then appears click on "Manage Media Settings" and in Chrome/Chromium settings make sure you select
the USB2.0 PC CAMERA USB Audio-Default Audio Device.

For the Webcam you will see multiple entries just select the first one and ignore Front- speakers/S/PDIF etc.

Thanks for the advice ETP - it does appear that you can configure each application/website to use the cam usb mic on a case by case basis but it's not currently possible to configure the mic to be the default mic used by all applications without individual configuration.....I also wonder whether other browsers such as firefox offer similar configuration settings to chromium? - another days investigation maybe....
Thanks again
peebee
