I just tried it on my Mac mini by plugging in my iPhone headset earphones to the audio out jack (Mac mini has no mic in jack, only line in, that's different). Recording was fine. Things got weird though if the "rate" setting was not 44, I sounded chipmunk'ed.

Hello Justine, 

Just to report that we continue to esperience problems on two of our students' MACs. They use Skype on their computers with no problems at all but when it comes to audio recording through Poodll, the result is as I have posted above. 

I have also been unable to find a setting for video recording with an acceptable quality. 

Have a good day! 

P. H.

Can you send me, by email, a student login, and the url of a video and audio activity on your site that I can test with?

When you have these problems recording with Macs, could you take down a little information for me? In particular the Mac OS version, the flash player version and the browser type and version? 

Also it would be helpful to know which recorder you are using when you get these problems ... the PoodLL mp3 recorder or the standard PoodLL audio recorder. Does one or the other give different results?

 

Thanks

I can report a good-quality recording using Safari on the same Mac (the above) where we had a very low-quality recording using Chrome.

Aha. Well that confirms that it is probably a chrome + mac issue.

I think ti will be hard to solve at the poodll level, but playing with the chrome flash player settings as described here might help.
