This question over on StackExchange lead me to Apple's iOS Developer Guide, specifically, the background section. This lists the activities apps are aloud to run in the background, camera access is not one of them. This would also be a terrible condition for battery life and so it is not surprising that it is not supported. While this doesn't guarantee ...

The camera, Bluetooth module, keyboard and trackpad all connect internally via USB. No LVDS cable is required or used by the camera. The internal microphone is connected directly to the audio controller. Take a look at About This Mac from the Apple menu, go to More Info > System Report, and look at the devices listed in the USB category to see the various ...

I'd approach the problem from the opposite end... Get the YouTube audio track into Audacity first. You can use iTunes to extract audio from video In prefs > General, click Import Settings... & change 'Import Using' to WAV [remember to set it back to your preferred audio format afterwards] Drag your video into iTunes, then go to the Movies tab ...

Check out SoundFlower https://rogueamoeba.com/freebies/soundflower/ This virtual / software sound device allows sound to be passed from one application to another (so it of course includes virtual output and input devices). You could achieve your goal by setting the input to soundflower, but making sure nothing it outputting to soundflower... this means ...

I've been struggling with the same issue as you and I've come up with two solutions. Dedicated headset that stays connected to the system (not really an option for you). Connecting my headset and briefly putting the system to sleep via the Apple menu. I literally wait for the screen of my Thunderbolt display to turn off and immediately wake it back up. If ...

I am currently using two identical Blue Yetis on my MacBook Pro under the aggregate device I set up a couple months ago. (see photo) I think the trick might be creating the aggregate first but I have to say: I was panicking because I had a sit-down interview scheduled the next day and I was flailing about in my attempt at getting this set up so... of ...

my microphone is working on the side from your laptop use a needle to pinch and clean out the hole from the microphone

For those Macs with a single shared input/output jack, the key to using a microphone is to have the correct plug. I'm guessing your're not seeing the input options because your microphone jack doesn't have three rings on it (Apple headsets with microphone have three rings)? If that's the case, you'll need to get a splitter cable so that the Mac realises that ...

It should be possible to add a microphone, you just need the correct adapter. See this answer I posted to a similar question - I believe the same will apply in this case.

Yes, you will be able to use your internal mic and headphones. A useful shortcut is option click on the speaker icon on the menu bar.

Just setup two windows in QuickTime: one for iPhone video and audio, and the other for Mac audio and press record on both windows. If the Mac audio isn't synchronized perfectly with the iPhone audio and visual, then you can just use iMovie or Final Cut Pro X, if you have it, to edit them. Make sure that "New Audio Recording", for your Mac's internal ...

That TRRS socket actually has of odd configuration of 4 pins so that you can use the genuine Apple headphone/microphone all-in-one 4-pin combo that comes with iPods & iPhones etc. Generally they look like this: Here is your microphone, right? The Sennheiser ME3. Notice there is a locking ring on that plug? Also, notice how there are two little black ...

After closely looking on microphone input on the left side of my MacBook Air, I have found that the little holes are blocked with dust or something like that. So I took the needle and removed the dust from microphone holes, and it's now working well! Note: I know this would seem like obvious solution, but the holes are so little you cannot see anything in ...

This happened to me the other day. After checking all the obvious settings etc. It actually seemed as if there were either no drivers or the actual hardware had been removed, like the OS didn't acknowledge its presence at all. I spent ages trying to work it out and what got it working again was just plugging something into the 3.5mm TRRS audio input/output ...

Make sure you've selected the Plantronics device in the mic chooser window in the Hangouts settings once the Hangout has begun (gear icon.) Change the default setting (which should be the internal mic on the Mac if there is one:) To Plantronics: (I have the Blue Snowball connected in this screen cap.)

Uninstall your audio drivers and restart. Just use the Microsoft default driver. If it still not working, just press the middle button once. It seems like the problem comes with these buttons, not the mic.

I think the answer is yes, it can. But it is unlikely to happen. To take an image you can use the class UIImagePickerController, which inherits from UINavigationController and UIViewController. On top of that view you can put another view by accessing the property cameraOverlayView. But there is another option, the AVFoundation, that does not require any ...

Having looked around a long time for answer to this question, I finally sorted mine out today. I have an iMac 27 inch (2013) running Windows 7 64-bit, through Boot Camp. I have put up with using a headset microphone for a long as I can remember. My solution today turned out to be stupidly simple. Go to Control Panel, Sound. Open the "Recording" tab. If ...
