I was planning on streaming footage of few games through ustream using my dazzle DVC 100 but I ran into a problem. I selected dazzle dvc 100 as video source AND audio source but no sound would play. The only solution I have to this problem is use my av to headphone adapter and see if that works. Any advice anyone?

Have you tried the other video sorces or is that the only one you can use?

I recently posted this in another topic, but opening the "Pinnacle Instant DVD Recorder" program that came with the Dazzle somehow makes the Dazzle audio work with Ustream.

That didn't work at all. I can only have dazzle selected on 1 or the other because on the one i don't have selected, no picture or sound appears.

i think that only works for Dazzle DVC 170s and not DVC 100s unfortunately so that may be why that didn't work for him

What I ended up having to do was rather than putting my audio into dazzle, I had to put my audio jack (I don't have enough equipment for both right now) into a coupler, and plugging that into a splitter cable. Then I just plug one of the cable ends on the splitter cable into the microphone input in my computer, and Ustream picks up the audio as a microphone, allowing you to play your audio.

And if I can, I'll get pictures of that up later. ;)

ya pictures might be a good idea to show what you are talking about cause based on what you said its kinda hard to picture, at least for me

I can get pictures, I'm just hoping my webcam can take good quality pictures, since that's the only camera source I can get.

EDIT: Got my pictures, and some are low quality as I expected them to be. :( I hope they are helpful anyways.

[spoiler:csz1cqnf]Note: All of the following things can be found at a store such as Best Buy, or some other technology based store. I wouldn't go to places like Wal-Mart for this stuff though.

1. To start out, you'll need 1 or 2 of these couplers. Basically they turn the edge of the jack from something that you plug in into something that you can plug something into. These cost me $5.00 each.

2. Next, you're going to need a splitter cable. This is what you will be attaching the couplers to. I couldn't get a good shot of mine, so I just got another example. As for cost, I think mine cost me $30.00 or so, but the prices can vary on these.

3. Now you have to attach the couplers to the side of the splitter cable that has 2 jacks, not one. This will allow you to plug your game system's jacks into the splitter cable later.

4. Now that the splitter cable is set up for the audio jacks for your system, you need to plug the side of the splitter cable that has one jack into the microphone input on your computer. (Low quality pic coming up.)

5. Now everything is set up and ready for your system! Next, take your system's jacks. The video one should still go into your dazzle, while both of the audio jacks (or one will also work)should go into the splitter cable with 2 ends, which should now have the couplers attached to it. This allows your computer (as well as Ustream) to pick up your game's audio as a microphone. (Another low quality pic coming up.)

6. Now log into Ustream and click the broadcasting button. Select your Dazzle/video recording device as your video. When you get to your audio though, select your computer's microphone. The name of the microphone may vary, but in this case mine is the Realtek High Definition Audio, which I have selected. If you look at the volume bar in the picture, you will also see that the bar is moving. If this happens, then Ustream is picking up your game's audio. If not, then you may want to PM me, post in this topic, or go over this "tutorial" again.

Overall, the buying of these things cost me around $40.00. To be honest, I don't know if that's a good deal or not. If you are trying to save money, you may want to compare prices first. This is how to get your game's audio to be picked up by Ustream.

If you want to stream your voice and the game audio at the same time, you will either have to buy a sound mixer, or use your sound card's stereo mix feature. If you are interested in that, I'll post another one of these long "tutorials". I hope you get your game audio working and start streaming. I need things to watch at night! :thumbs:[/spoiler:csz1cqnf]
