Screen Recorder not working

iMac Retina 5K, 27 Zoll, late 2014; OS X El Capitan, Version 10.11.3

Jaksta 1.4.6 (188)

Jagst Screen Recorder 1.0.0 (29)

Soundflowerbed v1.6.6

I am using a headset to listen.

Problem: it is not possible to catch a window or part of a window.

If I try to catch a window the sound gets lost and a strange sound appears. I even have to restart the DVD-Player to get accurate sound again.

Please could you give any advice on how to solve this problem.

With regards

Hi Henning,

Really sorry for the lack of responsiveness in this forum.

If you are still interesting in solving this issue, the next time you use Jaksta Screen Recorder, can you go to System Preferences->Sound->Output tab and check what you see change when you start and stop a recording? See my attached screenshot of what it looks like for me when Jaksta Screen Recorder is not running.

Alsohe next time this occurs, can you send the log file to us? You can find it by going to File|Reveal Log File... in the menu.

Hi Robert,

Sorry for the long delay!

Can you try a few things:

First just reinstall it, in case it has lost permissions to capture the audio:


When Jaksta Screen Recorder is recording, make sure you turn the volume up high.

When you play back the recorded video afterwards, turn its volume up high. It's possible the sound is very quiet.

Any luck?

Hi Robert,

Sorry for the delay again! I just sent you an email with your activation key.

If it is still not recording any sounds, can you go to the System Preferences->Sound. Under both the Output and the Input tabs, there should be a list of sound devices. Are there devices called "Soundflower (2ch)" showing on the list? I've attached a couple of screenshots form my machine as an example.

When you start a capture with Jaksta Screen Recorder, you should see the highlighted device in either list switch to the Soundflower one. When you stop the capture it should switch back to the original one. Does this occur?
