How do you mute audio during recording?

I do not want to record any sound while videoing

Re: How do you mute audio during recording?

@loyalshore70338 - There's not a way to turn off audio in recordings through the camera settings. If you don't want to record audio, one option is to plug in a mic adapter and not connect a mic.

 

Also, you can remove the audio is editing after you shoot your video if you'd like.

@loyalshore70338  @jefft  

 

I understand your querry.  And I hope Jeff can understand you are usng a Hero 5 camera, the Black, this also holds true to the Hero 5 Session.  @jefft this only works on the Hero 4 and older camera's, not Hero 5 and promic adapter.   You told me on an earlier post and thread you  are not a  person here to test out   products and demonstrate. so to speak, correct?

 

I Can tell you, by the camera you will need to have a promic ($50.00) adapter, a Gain control   3.5mm adapter with volume control, to mute sound

I will tell you using the adapter plugged in will only bipass to the gopro default microphones.  

 

WIth the camera and edtors, using Studio , smply load in clip and press on lower right speaker or to the right side lowering sound. 

 

With online webhosting sites like Youtube use the creators editor, add music if like and simply over ride the  soriginal sound.

 

@See Demonstration @ 6: 15  you'll see me unplug and hear the  promic as Jeff  said will mute, it will not mute. just informing you (smiles)

bipas the mic by simply not using a mic and sound is present. use A gain extension cable or stereo adapter to mute the sound.

Re: How do you mute audio during recording?

Hi guys, 

 

if there is no way how to not record audio, how did I managed to make some recordings with no audio at all. I was filming a business presentation, where audio was really important and back in the office I figured out some of the clips (not all) have no audio, which was really frustrating. 

 

Do you have any idea how that happened and what should I do or I should be carefull of in the future so this never happens again? 

 

Thanks, 

Jack

Re: How do you mute audio during recording?

I can't use the cable trick because it's on my 3DR drone, has anyone thought about covering up the mic holes?

Re: How do you mute audio during recording?

I did it without wantng to, by using the Hero 5 Black microphone adapter and plugging in a TRRS mic. I did that and got no audio at all. (Unfortunately, I lost the narration I thought I was recording).

You might get the same effect if you just plug-in  one of these without any mic at all. I haven't tried that, so not sure it would mute the audio, but if it does, it would be an inexpensive workaround.

Re: How do you mute audio during recording?

If you have a old or found 3 pin earphone cuthte  cable  be the same I used in my video  a gain control 3 pin.  i also wonder why you need to mute , because you want to load directly to youtube
