Microsoft EXPRESSION ENCODER

Recommended Posts

I know this is a little off the wall but is anyone using Microsoft's "Expression Encoder 4"? This is a FREE Screen recorder and works well on my laptop. However, when I installed it on my Desktop, the MIC does is not recognized. What is odd is the Mic IS recognized and works Windows 10 Pro but not in the app. I have searched all of the web and cannot find a solution.

 

Thanks all,

 

P.S. I know there are other products but I'm keen on getting this to work. Guess it's the challenge.

I though this platform relies on MS Silverlight. Silverlight is not supported by MS Edge or Chrome. 

 

I was not aware that you could even run Microsoft's "Expression Encoder 4" on Win10. 

 

Even IF you can, I would not recommend as most PPL may not be able to play these screencasts.

 

Either way development stopped 4 years ago...

Scott, If you figure out the problem with your mic please let me know because I think I have a related problem that my mic works on my PC in Windows 10 with Voice Recorder but for some reason quit working on my laptop the other day with the same setup but also works in both situations with other apps.

 

If you are looking for a great free screen recorder to get you back up and running, I am using OBS Studio and love it.  https://obsproject.com/

I can get you up and running with settings for 1080p if you like, just let me know.

Well that was easy.   Settings > Privacy > Microphone > Choose Apps that can use your Microphone > Turn on for applicable app.

Not quit sure how that got turned off but it works now.

On my Laptop Win 10 it worked fine and converted to WMV. No issue with the post and several views it.

Will do. I will check out OBS and see how it works.

I guess I was not aware of that. Thank for enlightening me. If the Mic issue could be resolved on my WS I might continue to use it simply to help articulate my thoughts to the Forum. 

 

Thanks again,

HELP Chop. I got OBS up and running but the videos will not playback. I've tried them in both MP4 and MOV formats and I get the same error.

Scott, I have also been getting that warning recently with the Windows 10 players.  It may not be related to OBS so try to reboot your machine and if that does not work send me your Skype name and we can check your settings over.  Also check to see if you can play with Windows Media Player as that usually works for me but ultimately you want your videos to play on whatever player your client wants to play it on.

      I am looking to order a new desktop in the next few days. I went back and looked at previous threads but not much useful info on the new nVidia 2000 series cards as far as CA goes. I am looking at probably a GTX 1070 Ti or maybe a RTX 2070. Both have 8GB of memory. The 2070 is about $50 more over the 1070 Ti. Another approx. $380 to go to a RTX 2080. Any of you running one of the new cards yet? If so, any input would be appreciated. It is difficult to decide if they will be much of an improvement over say a 1080. The new unit I am looking at (Digital Storm) doesn't even offer a 1080 in the list for some reason. Trying to plan ahead as I don't upgrade but every 5-years or so.
       
      In addition, would an I9-9900K be worth an additional $160 over an I7-9700K? I've been out of the loop on the processors for a long time. Like so many of you, I want mainly stability and the best bang for the buck. I do have the folks at Digital Storm overclock both the video card and the cpu within the limits of stability.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Well, so far, I've had to go to a new video card and a solid state hard drive just to get X10 to work correctly. Now I'm wondering what the advantages are of 10 over 9. I talked to at tech last week about the huge size of the videos the that are created whenever you do a walk through (over 1GB). I was told that there's nothing you can do to reduce them other than upload to YouTube and send clients a link,. (However, I have found that you can convert them to mp4 and send them by email). Please tell me what I'm missing here about Chief X10.

      Hi There,
       
      I am currently working on a video walkthrough tour of a four level building that has the Chief developers stumped as to why the camera will not consistently go up and down the four sets of stairs in my plan.
       
      So I thought it might be a problem with my plan and while I am waiting for an answer back from Chief I have downloaded the X8 Modern Bungalow plan as used in training video #10033: https://video.chiefarchitect.com/?search=10033 and,   sure enough,the same problems are occurring there. I was able to get the camera to climb the stairs as described in the video but no luck going down.
       
      If there is anyone who has mastered this move, I would love to hear from you.  Not too worried about the details as I know how to shoot a single level video, just need to get downstairs again.
       
      Please see failed attempt in attached Plan.

      We have a completed plan in Chief Architect 7 that needs some tweaking (make sure roof line is correct, finish on floors needs to be polished concrete, not aggregate, etc., all door finishes need to match) and someone to create a more photo realistic look (we think ours is a little cartooning looking, along with a 3D video walk through in MP4 format) - see attached photos and file.  
       
      This is now a time sensitive project so please contact me ASAP or directly at 310-720-2807 and cpmeister@istreem.net.
