    Unhappy Use microphone with mac?
    Hey guys, I just bought a microphone for my tutorial videos, and It wont work on my mac. I plug it into the headphone jack (There is no microphone jack) and then try setting my input as line in. But it wont work. I tried it on the same computer, but with windows, same thing. Is there any way I can get this to work? Its the same computer listed under my name.

    Try turning up the volume for the mic input.
    Some of those microphones with the 1/8" jack are hit or miss when being used on a Mac. IMHO... get a USB microphone or a USB headphone/microphone combo for better clarity and less hassle with OSX.
