I have a camcorder with a single female rca port for audio (out). I wish to connect it to a capture card that also has a single female audio (in) port. can I use a regular rca male cable? will it lose the stereo audio and I end up with mono? or does it have to be some special cable that can handle stereo audio?

You won’t get stereo with a single rca jack. So it will definitely be mono.

Kinda odd for using single RCA port for analog audio - are you sure it isn't a SPDIF port?

i suspect that too... But I don't remember any cameras with a 'single' rca unless it is a yellow rca for analog composite video out hmm.gif

but to ts who needs help, if you really have just a single audio rca out, it is not difficult to find a y splitter single male to 2 female rca

i'm not sure. in the user manual it just labels the 2 ports as "video/audio jacks". on the cam the video is yellow and the audio is black, and they both look like female rca ports

Likely the mic is also mono. So you just get a mono audio

Solution, just split the signal into left and right and plug into your capture card
Else you can also do it using software

A quick googling suggests that your camcorder indeed only records in mono sound, so there is no stereo audio to begin with.
