Hi,

 

I am looking to use "Live event" to record presentations for our department. The aim is to use 1 laptop/camera/audio setup to record and stream.

 

I use an Elgato Camlink to convert the A/V source to USB, and when using headphones on the Camera itself, and when Recording on the camera itself, I can monitor/hear no problems.

... When I use my headphones on the laptop, I select Camlink as Video, and as Audio, and I see the audio bars rise & fall. I cannot, however, hear what is incoming, therefore can't monitor the recording.

 

I have tried this on 3 different computers..... does anyone have any clues as to why i can't monitor the output?

 

Thanks.....

Because that's your input, imagine if you were speaking and heard yourself echoed back. You can find an option in windows setting for the device to to listen to an input device.
