You must make sure that all the settings are perfect. Firstly, tick the with audio option. Otherwise, the software will only record picture but not sound. Then, choose the sound source as system sound. If you choose microphone, the software can’t record audio in the video.
Check the original video, adjust the video volume when you play it.

What kind of video files does videograbber pro output? I looked at purchasing a different companies software that does a similiar thing, but the video output couldn’t be read by Handbrake for file manipulation.
- Alice : Hello, thanks for any feedback. Video Grabber Pro supports downloading videos in .mp4 or other kind of web video format such as WEBM, FLV, 3GP, SWF, etc. The format can be fully compatible with Handbrake. Actually, the software itself comes with video converter function. You do not need to convert files with the aid of other software programs. Simply click on "Convert" tab, you may choose your wanted video format to output your video files.
