Hi gamedayFILMZ,

Despite we get the audio problem reports from time to time we still did not replicate it on our side.

Thanks.  Perfect!  Also I noticed that I could use HyperCam 3 beta on my XP laptop but on my 64 bit vista machine I can't seem to get audio to capture.  (It may be my machine but I'm curious if it is a known issue.)

Ok I caught the question. Yes firstly just use uncompressed or video 1 codec. Then if you are making fullscreen resolution convert it as HD and view in flash in HD and full screen mode. I tried your ling in HD and fullscreen and the inscriptions seems to be quite readable.

Sorry I am being so confusing.  I did not mean that I could not view the YouTube video.  I can.  My concern is the quality of the video.  I will try "Video 1 codec"  I guess I was looking for guidance along the lines of "for best results set the window to be captured at X pixels by Y pixels at a frame rate of Z". Or whatever guidance you can give me.   For instance how is something like this (http://basecamphq.com/demos/dashboard) captured to have such great readable results?

Hi gamedayFILMZ,

I can properly playback the youtube link you provided, may be you should update your flash player plugin?

Still my question is what is the best way to use HyperCam to make tutorial videos so they are best looking?

As youtobe fullfills conversion to a native format, achiving the best video/audio quality can be done using captuting uncompressed video/audo stream, or (as it requires too HDD space) use Video 1 codec for video compression.

Thanks for your prompt reply.  No I'm not trying to playback AVI file but the FLV that YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YGWgAWducM) or MotionBox (http://www.motionbox.com/videos/7a9ad9b31918eccbf5) provide after conversion.   Still my question is what is the best way to use HyperCam to make tutorial videos so they are best looking?  Thanks for your help and great tool.

Hi gamedayFILMZ,

Thank you for using our software. As you probably know AVI file format is not intended to be viewed  online or via internet streaming. For that purpose Youtube should convert yout input AVI to FLV file. As I can see in your link you try to playback online AVI file instead of FLV that is incorrectly

I just installed the Hypercam 3 beta and it seems to work fine except that when I upload to MotionBox (or YouTube) the result is unreadable.  Is there some guidelines for making videos so that they are viewable? Here  http://www.motionbox.com/videos/7a9ad9b31918eccbf5 is the result. How do I improve it? (The local avi is perfectly readable.)
