Hi all,


My daughter is a keen piano/keyboard player and to help her to improve I video her as she plays so that she can see for herself where she's going wrong.


I initially did this by sticking my mobile phone to the wall over the keyboard, which worked ok until the phone came unstuck and fell on the floor.


I then moved on to using a webcam over the keyboard and recording with the Windows 'Camera' programme.


This is a lot easier than the mobile phone but the sound quality is poor, so what I did was bought on of these:




and took the cable from the headphone outlet on the keyboard into the back of the desktop computer.


Unfortunately Windows Camera doesn't have a way of changing the audio input, so the signal from the keyboard isn't being recorded.


Is there a way I can get the audio signal into the video from a cable connection and use the video source from the webcam?

Will I need a different programme to do this or is there a way of changing the audio source in Camera?


Thanks in advance for your help.
