I'm need to record a program that has sound to put together training material for work, so I decided to download SimpleScreenRecorder for the job.
I was able to record video seamlessly but the audio was messed up. I could hear the audio of the program but there were screeching and static noises over it. I thought maybe I left my mic connected to the computer and that was the source of the problem but the mic wasn't connected.
I started messing with my audio settings (NO idea what I did) and now I can only record video.
I installed PulseAudio and it confirmed that no sound is being recorded.
The audio entry in SimpleScreenRecorder is set to ALSA Default source. I did mess with those settings and now I know it was a stupid thing to do, so I changed it back to default but I still can't record audio.
If anyone could please help me figure out what's happening it would be great. I use Ubuntu because of my job so I'm not very well versed in it, but I can follow basic instructions in order to get more info.
I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, audio adapter HDA-Intel - HDA Intel, it that helps.
Thank you in advance!
