  7. [kubuntu] Re: Mic doesn't work at all - Checked the help pages

    When you go to input, it should list the hardware which is normally analog input and it should be selected. You should see the input level bar and on the top is a box for mute. Just uncheck it.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Hey video experts, MKV to smaller file, best way?

    Give Handbrake a shot (www.handbrake.fr). You can do custom sizez and bitrates to get what you want. I do believe you can shrink an MKV file and not just break the dvd itself. I will look at this...
