I'm trying to make a Let's Play Minecraft vid with a couple of mates, but I don't think I am doing it in the optimal way. I use Fraps to record the video, which has no problems, but if I use Record Audio Output and Record Audio Input (mic) then I get very bad sound quality through my mic. I also use Mumble to chat with them, so I have tried recording it in Mumble but it seems like a very bulky way of doing it. On a side note, which is the best voice chat program? Skype comes to mind - but high latency isn't a good thing for gaming. I know Steam has a voice chat but it only works when you have bought at least one game. Which some of my friends haven't (shame on them). There is Ventrilo, but it does not work with Linux, which would be cool. Teamspeak is another option but I have not tried it. Steam - not on Linux (unless through Wine), needs a bought game Skype - high latency Ventrilo - not on Linux Teamspeak - not tried Mumble - seems to fit all the boxes Sorry to drag the post on a bit, but I have also tried dabbling with the echo cancellation setting of Mumble. I have a surround speaker system, and my mic sits on top of the monitor. This means that using normal settings, echo and feedback is horrendous. Headphones are a solution, but until Christmas when I plan to get a Razer Carachis my cheap Sony earphones are no substitute. And without the surround sound. Ideally the echo cancellation would reduce the echo to a point where it is almost inaudible, but the feature in Mumble only works part of the way.
