Windows Media Player is the default audio/video program installed on all Windows-based computer systems. It plays not only the audio and video from a CD or DVD video, but also the sound captured by a connected microphone. When a microphone is hooked up to the computer you don't need to adjust any of the settings, as the audio waves automatically play through the computer speakers.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Microphone with optional 3.5mm adaptor
- Windows Media Player software
Plug the 3.5mm cable running out of the microphone into the "Line-In" port on the computer system. If your microphone has something other than a 3.5mm plug, you will need an adaptor to make it 3.5mm.
Power on the microphone and power on the computer, if it isn't already.
Open Windows Media Player. This is available on the "Start" menu of the computer.
Begin talking into the microphone (or hold the mic up to any other audio source you want to obtain the audio from) and it plays through the Media Player software.
