"Disappointing -records videos with no sound-"

February 28, 2011  |  By andreaborman

 |  Version: SplitCam 5.4.3

Pros

This new version 5 aim to be more modern and has what could be good features,make webcam videos. If only the sound worked,which it does not. as there is a problem with this version,records with NO SOUND.

Cons

You cannot record videos with sound in this version as there is a problem that prevents it picking up your computer microphone- unacceptable.

Summary

Splitcam 5 has been brought into line with new operating system Windows 7 or so it claims to be. But unfortunently although you can now record webcam videos and post them on You Tube from here.On my computers-the videos recorded but WITH NO SOUND AT ALL. And despite my best efforts I could not fix this problem. And it is not my computer as it records videos with sound with other webcam capture programs.So it is not my webcam or built in microphone that is the problem.So there is a problem with this version that needs to be fixed.Before Splitcam 5 this new version I was using Splitcam 3 that includes the drivers needed for it to run on Windows 7. Splitcam 3 just takes photos not videos but I am happy with that as it does all it says it does and I can adjust my webcam colors with it. But this version Splitcam 5 although you can still take photos and use most of the features that came before. What has stopped me from keeping this new version is that although you can record videos you cannot record them with sound. So it is a waste of time getting this new version until they fix this problem. It is true that previous versions of Splitcam were not made for Windows 7,just Windows XP and Vista. But most programs made for Windows XP or Windows Vista will work on Windows 7- 99 times out of 100,they will. and the previous versions of Splitcam work with Windows 7. This new version is a big disappointment as you just cannot record videos with sound like they say you can. So the answer upgrading your Splitcam 3 or 4 to this new version is-No thank you. I am staying with my current version-Splitcam 3. And I have now uninstalled Splitcam 5 and have now rolled back to Splitcam 3. And I advise other Splitcam users to do the same as I did. The new version -not being able to record videos with sound is not good enough. For anybody to give up their current version-Splitcam 3 for this one splitcam 5-NO WAY. That is why this only gets a 2 star rating. Andrea Borman.

I have contacted the Splitcam help form and have written on their page that Splitcam 5,this version cannot record videos with sound like it is supposed to. And I was told that they are aware of this issue and are working on the problem to repair it.As apparently a number of people have complained about this. But they did not give a time as to when this problem will be fixed. And I and other people cannot wait months until they do fix the sound problem. So at the moment I am using the old version of Splitcam and although it does not record videos,there are no problems with this. The new version of Splitcam would have been perfect if it was not for the issue of the sound not working in the videos,as all of the other features worked. So if they do fix this bug in Splicam 5,than I will upgrade to 5 but not at the moment. As the problem is not fixed. Andrea Borman.
