Have you selected any audio input via the small down wards facing triangle on the right side of the "Screen Recording" window?
What do you have connected to the line-in to record with?
What do you expect it to record if you have no audio source connected?
Sound like PEBKAC.
Either select Built-In Microphone or connect an external microphone to the line-in.
Speakers can be used as a microphone, as they have some similarities with microphones, but for your purposes you either need an external microphone connected via the Line-In or use the internal microphone.
That is if you want to record YOUR voice.
Or do you want to record the sound that normally comes out of your speakers?
If that is so, QT X will not do that. You can use Audio Hijack for this.
I don't have Quicktime X so I can't check but it's possible that that is an ability of the screen recording feature, to grab the system audio along with it. (Not to mention that it's 5 ways of stupid to record the screen to save Youtube videos when you can just download them.)
If you want to duplicate the effect with other screengrabber applications you'll probably need Soundflower.
That's one misfortunately named app unless properly capitalized...
I also had the same problem when starting recording with iShowU (note caps, otherwise very hard to read correctly), just hit the volume key once and you should get audio through your speakers, at least that solved it for me.
Looks like I have a different version of iShowU, so you're on your own from here.
Still sounds like PEBKAC though.
Does that mean, you solved the problem?
And why did you delete all your posts? Someone else could have found them useful.
Na, who am I kidding, they will just make a new thread anyway, with the title: NEED HELP NOW - ANSWER NOW.
