View Full Version : [ubuntu] Audacity won't capture on VirtualBox and XP

September 8th, 2010, 03:31 AM
I am trying to get Audacity to capture what is played on my laptop speakers using VirtualBox and Win XP. It won't capture.

Toshiba Satellite L455
Intel(r) 82801 AA AC'97 Audio Controller (what ever the heck that is)
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid
Audacity 1.2.6 (just downloaded)
Installed LAME (not that it should matter)
About 99.9% sure I have Stereo Mix as my recording input

When I record then export to WAV and play, I get nothing but hiss. During recording I have a very small amount of activity for recording peaks (I think it is just the hiss). If I change to my input device as a mic and hook one up, I get activity on the input monitoring bars so it appears that Audacity can receive input, I just can't figure out how to direct the speakers to it.
