Use of external microphone

2019-10-15, 15:00 PM

 Have tried to use an external Røde VideoMicro microphone with Motorola One Zoom, both directly to jack connection on phone and with a splitter microphone/headphone.. None of the solutions seems to work.. 

 

Do you have any suggestions for how to make it work, either apps, settings or different hardware?

 

Thanks

Hi.

 

Not sure if it works or not, but wanted to know how you are using it. Are you using a recording app, and if so, which one? Or are you using it when shooting video on the phone?

Re:Use of external microphone

Hello,

 

I have the same problem too.

I try to record audio with an Y-split cable in the pre installed camera app.

But allways the internal microphone is used.
If I connect a normal headset with microphone it works.

What is the difference here?
Is there any setting I can choose to get this running?

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi, 

 

Thank you for posting! Sorry to know about this. Our stock camera doesn't support an external microphone when recording videos. Some 3rd party camera apps like Open Camera do have a setting you can choose to use an external mic though. Please let me know if you need further assistance. 

 

Thanks

Sunitha

The stock camera app does accept external microphones, however both the headphone jack and USB C port only accept TRRS cables.

 

Most microphones come with a TRS cable which won't work...

 

A TRRS cable is the one with 3 rings on rather than the usual 2 rings. Much like phone headphones with microphones built in they run 3 rings (TRRS).
