    Hi,

    That is a valid comment.
    It used to more common in iChat 3 and so I had stopped posting about that option.

    It's worth a check even if you have never used a MIDI device

    Tonight when playing a photo booth captured movie via quicktime player I noticed two things:

    1) the movie had not been flipped (as the photos did).
    2) there was no sound.

    After unchecking Photo Booth > Edit > Auto Flip New Photos, I was able to record a 5 minute movie with sound no problems.

    Upon rechecking Photo Booth > Edit > Auto Flip New Photos and rerecording a movie, the problem didn't arise again. Hopefully it's a lasting fix.

    Still not sure why movies aren't flipped though.
    iMovie will fix that though.

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    iChat does flip the Video as a Matter of course for you to View yourself as you would in front of a mirror.

    Photo Booth does not.

    However at Leopard and Below you may want to try iGlasses that can flip the Video in many apps (amongst other things).

    It does not work in Photo Booth on Snow Leopard yet http://www.ecamm.com/snowleopard/

    i agree with you. the way they call things, too:
    example: it's not a "product recall", it's an "exchange program". pleeeeease.

    i'm a mac user now, but i'm starting to find out how exclusive they are with the company's products.

    Same problem here, MacBook Pro, built-in mic. Intermittent - recorded four videos in a row, only two of them had sound. Quicktime Player reports (under "Show Movie Properties") that there is indeed a soundtrack, it's just that it is 0.00 seconds in duration.

    Yes, I agree, we're only asking Photo Booth to do one of it's basic functions, to just record a video with sound. Flicking the mic is interesting... I wonder if the input needs to be "woken up", as if perhaps there was an automatic limiter in the circuit that is behaving funny. (Just a guess, I'm not an engineer). I hope Apple can fix this soon.

    Hey Everyone. I hope im not too late.
    I had the same problem and i tried everything. I recorded a video and there was no sound on photobooth.

    I did however come up with a good solution.
    I downloaded this program called "FLV CRUNCH" which is a video converter.

    I dragged my file in to convert and i set the format to 'mpg.(mepg 1)
    and pressed start.
    It changed the format of my video and is now working just fine.

    VLC works aswell but you cant actually use the video for editing purposes meanwhile if you do convert it you can use it on iMovie.

    I hope this helps.
  • Ama1990 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I also forgot to mention that you have to convert the video back to .mov to be able to use it in iMovie.

    It's not a long process and its fairly easy.
    If you want to get that audio back then its the best solution.

    Again i hope this information helps.

    Hello! I had just recorded a video I'd really liked, and when I played it back, there was no audio. Your post helped me a lot! I downloaded VLC, and I opened the video in that program, and the audio worked!

    However, I'm not exactly sure how to get it onto the Internet. I'd like to post this 15-minute video to a blog, so a URL to it if I could somehow upload it would be great... I'm not sure. That's why I'm asking you; how can I upload it to the Internet, and keep its audio?

    mine has been the same for ages... i went in to preferences and changed input device from, and then back to, in built microphone... played with the input volume slider a bit then went back into PB . Nada. ONce i shut PB down and re-=opened it it was fine and picked up the change from system preferences.

    I realized I had the same problem today, luckily I checked the Safari update and downloaded the latest Garage Band update this includes some of the audio feature. After download completed, restarted garage band then closed application, opened Photo booth and tested the video mode after playback it WORKED I finally have sound!

    Thanks for sharing your solution, WLL!

    Your experience shows the importance of keeping software updated. Your suggestion is certainly worth consideration by all who are still having trouble.

    Umm,

    I wonder if that will also solve the iChat Audio Issue ?
