Quiet Sound while recording using the "Stereo Mix" option on Windows XP

Quiet Sound while recording using the "Stereo Mix" option on Windows XP

I'm trying to record some of my work, and the video capture program I'm using works fine. It's HyperCam2, and since it's not really professional, I don't care about that little thing in the corner. Anyways, If I check the record sound option and put it on the highest quality, and I want it to record the sounds playing from my computer, I have it record the "Stereo Mix" setting. However, after a quick test, I saw that even though my computer was at max volume, the recorded sound was very quiet, almost inaudible. Thinking it was just HyperCam, I downloaded Audacity, and only met similar results.

"Had the same problem on Win7 x64.
Go to Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Sound - Recording tab - Stereo Mix Properties - Advanced Tab.
Uncheck ""Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"".
Worked for me."
