Sound recorder crash

BaaBobBaaBob Posts: 10

Hi all,
I'm having some trouble with the sound recorder. I want to use OpenSesame for a basic video elicitation, where the participant watches video and narrates the actions. I've set up the basics in the experiment

But when I run it, it throws an error.

Stopped

The experiment did not finish normally for the following reason:

Unexpected error

There's this discussion that indicates my problem has to do with the pymedia-mac combo. http://forum.cogsci.nl/index.php?p=/discussion/2120/problems-with-sound-recorder-mac-os-x#latest

It's over a year old. Have there been any updates on this issue?
best,
-Bob.

    This seems to be the exact same issue as described in 2120, so to avoid fragmentation I'm closing this discussion and replying there.

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.
