    Hi,

    I am a big fan of Google's camera and am keen to use its video capability. However, it is not playing nice with my external mic.

    I am using a Google USB-C - 3.5mm dongle > Rode SC4 TRS-TRRS adaptor > Rode SmartLav but the phone isn't detecting the external mic and continues to use the internal mic.

    Can someone assist please. It's driving me crazy.

    Many thanks,
    Peter

    Try your setup on another phone to narrow down the source of your problem. Good luck

    I'm guessing it's the TRS-TRRS adapter - the phone is TRRS and the mic is TRRS, so unless the mic is wired for iPhones, you don't need the adapter, it's just messing things up. (If it's wired for iPhones - mic not connected to RS - you'll need an iPhone TRRS to Android TRRS adapter. Android has the mic+ on S and the mic- on the first R up from S.)
