Mic is delayed by a few seconds, tried reinstalling. Any idea why or a fix?
Im still having this issue as well, been over a year now, and no real fix.
I use ASUS mobo with realtek audio drivers, 280X card. My windows audio is sync perfect, but when my local mic records its off by 30 seconds sometimes.
I just found out that the reason for the delayed mic-sound in my recordings seems to be, that I chose a different SSD for the saved records and temporary recorings, than the SSD on which the Plays.tv client is installed.
I just changed it back to standard, so that all is saved on the same SSD as the client is installed.
Unfortunately this SSD is very small.
So I'd love an option to install the client on a different location...
I hope this helps
Thanks for the potential fix Flyex!
In regards to this issue, we're going to start digging deeper into it. It was not as easily solvable as most other encoder bugs because it's related to audio. The other issue is the inconsistency of it happening. Things we've seen:
Hello, i have this issue as well, i tried both reinstalling the client and move the recording folders to the same as my install folder. but i have noticed that my recording is fine at session start and get more and more out of sync the longer i play.
I use a "Turtlebeach - Earforce Z60" headset, wich uses an external sound-card. i don't know if that is the issue or not because i have no other mic/headset to test with.
I have this issue as well. It seems like it gets worse the longer the footage is. If I game for 2 hours, and review 1 hour and 50 minutes into the gameplay, my mic is out of sync 2-3 seconds.
So maybe it's an issue with those of us who have multiple sound devices on our computers.
FWIW, I recently upgraded from an Intel system w/ AMD Fury to a Ryzen system with a 1080 and the issue remains...so whatever the issue was survived a reinstallation of Windows.
Also, FWIW....my temp directory and game storage directory are on the same volume, in different directories. plain HDD..
I've been having the same issue for a while now too, and I am using a CyberPowerPC headset (don't know what else to call it, made by AULA I believe), and all my recordings are saved to my hard drive instead of my SSD. I suppose this is the problem but my HDD is 1TB and my SSD is only 256GB with around 30GB left of space, so I don't think it would be good if I tried saving my clips to my Solid State Drive.
Same here, once I have quit any game to then watch the footage, there would be a huge delay from my microphone compared to anyone that I'm playing with. It seems to get worse the longer the recording. I honestly have no clue how to fix this problem.
