When working in RTP preview mode, audio playback is enabled. To display the audio indicators, right-click your Engine and select the corresponding context menu option:
The VU meter(s) will be shown on the right of the Engine window. The number of audio indicators depends on the number of input audio channels specified via the Capture Engine Configuration wizard:
Each VU meter shows peak and integrated audio levels in the dB scale as the master output for all the enabled audio channels mixed together.
There is an individual speaker button below each audio scale. The speaker buttons allow user to mute the corresponding audio channels.
To mute the audio, press the speaker button.
Press this button once more to turn audio back on.
The computer screen is progressive and may not display interlaced video correctly. Cinegy Capture uses the built-in deinterlacing features of your video adapter. Therefore, the deinterlaced image quality may vary depending on your board and driver.

Use of multiple video stream previews (previously added and configured via the Capture Engine Configuration wizard) by each Engine is supported.
