4.3. AUDIO AND MOUSE CURSOR OPTIONS :

4.3.1. Audio :

Record Audio : When the Record Audio option is checked, BSR will record audio from the selected audio source into the video.

Rec. Volume : Recording volume of the currently selected audio input channel can be set here.

Audio From :

The audio recording lines which the sound card installed on that computer supports are listed here. BSR Screen Recorder uses the capabilities of the sound card installed on that computer. You can select any of the audio sources listed. Examples to the input channels are 'microphone', 'line in', 'CD audio', 'What U Hear' etc. If the Speakers (i.e. Stereo Mix, Mono Mix, What U Hear) option is not listed , it means that the sound card doesn't have such an input line. In such a case, see the Solution section below.

BSR is also capable of changing audio recording line in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If somehow BSR is not able to change audio input line selection, only the selected audio source will be displayed. In that case, for changing the audio source, BSR will open the Windows sound setting window. Starting with Windows Vista, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems doesn't allow programs to change the audio recording sources of the sound cards programmatically. Users must change it manually from the Windows' settings. Therefore BSR opens the Windows Sound setting window and describes to the user how to change it.

If the sound card doesn't support recording audio from speakers then there are 2 alternative solutions :

Solution 1:

You can try connecting a cable (3.5mm audio cable with a male plug at each end) from the line-out (or audio out or headphone) port of the computer to the "line-in", and choose the “line-in” as the recording source in BSR. Or if a "line-in" port doesn't exit, you can also connect the cable from the "line-out" (or audio out or headphone) port to the "microphone" port and choose "microphone" as the recording source.

When you connect the cable to the headphone port, you may not be able to hear the computer sound. To solve this, you can connect a 3.5mm splitter to the headphones port to be able to connect both the cable and a headphone.

Solution 2:

You should either install another sound card which supports that feature on your computer or use BSR on another computer which has a capable sound card.

Record Mouse Click Sounds : When the user clicks mouse while recording, BSR records click sound.

Record Keystroke Sounds : When the user starts typing keyboard during recording, BSR records keystroke sounds in to the video.

Amplify Recording Volume : BSR automatically amplifies the sound volume in selected rate.

In the configuration wizard, there exists only a part of the configuration options which are used more frequently. For the other configuration options which don't exist in the wizard, you should open BSR Configuration by clicking the Configure button on the main interface. (See Section 3 – Configuration of BSR for further information.)

4.3.2. Mouse Cursor :

Enabling Record Mouse Click Displays will provide BSR to record mouse clicks to the video.

- Animation Display : Left mouse clicks are displayed as red animation circles and right mouse clicks are displayed as green circles on the video.

- Constant Display : Left mouse clicks are displayed as red lines and right mouse clicks are displayed as green lines on the video. The lines are displayed until the mouse button is released.

- Both : Mouse clicks are displayed with both animations and constant lines on the video.

Highlight Mouse Cursor : This will provide BSR to highlight the mouse cursor with the specified color, shape, size and transparency.

Enabling Activate Cursor Highlight will provide BSR to highlight the mouse cursor with the specified color, shape, size and transparency. Restore Defaults button restores the default values for the cursor highlight.

In the configuration wizard, there exists only a part of the configuration options which are used more frequently.
