  1. External Microphone Not Working With Game DVR!


    Hi,

    I want to record footage of gameplay on windows 10. However, OBS studio and StreamLabs lag too much when I try to play games with them. So, I tried using Game DVR to record gameplay. I have a steinberg ur22 audio soundcard which links up to an external mic which I would like to use. Game DVR solved the lag problem but would not record audio through the external mic, and would only work when I unplugged the external audio device and used the awful microphone on my surface pro 6. I checked that the microphone was working in settings and it is all fine.

    How do I solve this problem? Or is there another screen recorder which does not produce lag like OBS studio does?

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 Pro Game DVR not recording Microphone

    It used to work than some Microsoft updates later it stopped working. I don't often try to record my microphone so I am not sure when.

    I have verified my Windows 10 Game DVR Settings

    • Record audio when I record a game: On
    • Turn mic on by default when I record: Checked
    • Record game audio only: Off
    • Recorded Video: 60 fps
    • Video quality: High
    • Capture mouse cursor in recordings: Checked

    Additionally, I checked the Microphone Privacy Settings

    • Allow apps to access your microphone: On
    • Choose which apps can access your microphone: All On except Cortana and Win32WebViewHost (default settings). I tried turning these on but didn't help.

    In case it matters, I am using Sony PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset (PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset - Uncharted 4 Limited Edition:Amazon:Video Games). I know the Microphone is working because people I am playing with can hear me just fine. The only issue is Game DVR isn't recording my voice when it is recording both game audio and other player voices.

    Any help resolving this would be appreciated. Thanks
