  1. Why does my mic in game capture only work after turning it on during a manual recording.


    I've been using the XBOX game bar to capture video game clips of me and my friends. Usually it would only pick up audio from discord and from the game I play (rocket league). My own audio is not being recorded.

    After recording a clip in a different game (deep rock galactic), I noticed that in that video clip my audio is being recorded. I looked into it a bit further.

    What I did:

    • I checked the privacy settings for my microphone in the windows settings (windows 10). In there both rocket league and the xbox game bar have access to my microphone
    • In the settings of Xbox game bar, the 'record audio when i record a game' as well as the setting that says: 'turn on mic by default when i record' is turned on.
      • the microphone volume in the screen is set to 100%
      • the box with 'only record game audio' is not on.
    • In the Xbox game bar settings (Windows key + G)
      • the setting 'audio to record' is set to 'all: game, enabled mic, apps, system'
      • the setting 'record in the background while I'm playing a game' is turned on
      • the setting 'show microphone recording notifications' is turned off
    • In rocket league i did the following
      • I made a capture and found out that when I boot up the game my mic isn't being recorded
      • I can do a manual recording. In there my mic is turned off by default. After turning it on, my mic works and my audio get captured.
      • Then when i stop manually recording and make a video game capture (windows key + Alt + G) my mic is being recorded
    Is anyone able to help me with this?

    I would like to have my mic be on by default when recording clips.

    Thank you in advance

    :)

    Hello Olivier Verhagen,

    Welcome to Xbox Community Forum. Thank you for sharing your concern with us today and we hope that all is well.

    We understand that you are trying to record a clip of your game recording your microphone while being heard in the game. Let us check on this together and sort this out in timely manner for you to get back to gaming.

    Based on your description, you can record your own audio when you play Deep Rock Galactic but on Rocket League it does not work.

    1. May we confirm if both games were installed from Xbox app / Microsoft Store?
    2. Do we have settings for microphone on the Deep Rock Galactic, is it enabled?
    3. Have you tried to play Rocket League without recording it? Will your voice be heard by the team/players in the game?
    4. Have you tried using different headset or microphone, will issue persist?
    5. Are both games played while on full-screen mode or borderless window mode?

    We look forward to your response.

    Kindly let us know, if there is any misunderstanding or clarifications of our description by sending us a reply.

    WTF... Game Clip voice recording - Why is this not possible?

    When I record a game clip on the Xbox One X my voice is not recorded even though all my mic settings are set to on. I'm totally confounded as to why this is so, since my mic is working with other apps and game chat. Supposedly this feature is built into
    the Xbox One X capture system.

    Hi There,

    Have you enabled recording of your mic during game captures? It is a setting that is usually disabled by default and you would be required to enable it from your Console capture settings.

    xbox game bar screen recording black screen

    Hi Enlopz. My name is Kyle and I'm an independent advisor.

    > i would also like to add that the screen record was named “control panel”

    Game Bar names recordings after the app it was recording, so in this case it was recording the Control Panel.

    Game Bar can only record one app window, it will record the app which was focused when you started the recording. It cannot switch to recording another app after you begin recording.

    > i would also like to fix this specific screen recording as it is important for me.

    I'm afraid it won't be possible to fix this recording. Game Bar only recorded that specific window; you can't go back and change that as any other data was not captured during the recording.

    If you wish to record your whole screen, I recommend using a different recording app such as OBS. Game Bar is designed for recording games, hence why it can only capture one window at a time.

    Please reach back if you have further questions.

    Thanks,
    Kyle
