Wierd Audio Issue

Hey Everyone,

I have this strange audio issue when recording, it feels like maybe a codec issue with Wirecast, It only happens when I'm using MP4 which of course I want to.

In OBS this does not happen


I don't want to use OBS I purchased wirecast because I thought it would be much better which it is for greenscreen removal and broadcasting but this recording issue is sooo frustrating.

  • You can hear it at about 8 seconds in. this screetch happens all the time in my recordings ONLY on wirecast.

    I have high quality recording gear.

  • This might be a sample rate issue. Please make sure the chain is all 48KHz or 44.1KHz. but don't mix it.

    Please validate also the statistics inside wirecast for any peaks.

  • Totally get that Jens, but I have the same settings on OBS and also on Camtasia and no issues exist, I switch to MOV prores and the issue disappears, but with MP4 it's a real problem.


    Statistics inside wirecast? What's that and where do I find it.


    Thanks for your help and response :)

      Matthew Hughes Odd but I'm not hearing anything in that video other than normal sibilance on S. Downloaded the original to have a listen locally and I'm not hearing it. Listening on headphones playing of my Behringer U-Phoria audio interface.

       Are you using Wirecast record to disk present in 14.1.2?
      Both MP4 and MOV are set to 48kHz 

  • Strange that you can't hear it, it's just generally shocking compared to the export from Camtasia, not sure why it's like that at all

     It sounds completely clean to me. Perhaps it's related to playback or monitoring but I don't hear it in the recording on my system.
