VLC record does not capture equalizer settings

I have an hour mp4 and want to record the middle 20 minutes. I get my opening and closing, adjust the equalizer to fix the muffled video sound, hit play, then the red record button. The resulting file, however, does not have the adjusted audio settings. It's the same muffled sound of the original. How do I get the equalizer settings to record in the section of video I'm snipping (recording)? Thanks.

it sounds like VLC is not changing the original file, just adjusting how you hear it.  Perhaps you need an audio editor.  I like GoldWave.

Thanks. Tried WavePad editor but the resulting file had no video in it. Was hoping a VLC expert might know about VLC settings I might be missing.

Thanks, Crystal. I've seen the second link. Perhaps if I save the settings, then record my segment, they'll stick to the new recording. I'll report back.

VLC does not keep these modified settings they are only active during that particular session once you close it it restore the original by default.
I have used VLC for many years and that is normal.
When I upgraded to windows 10 my Frapps nolonger worked so doing some sourcing I found this desktop capture which is really simple and works really well, I went back to windows 7 howeverand still use it.
You can get it here from DVDSoft

 capture your VLC settings current   it includes the option to capture a region. It's called free screen recorder
It has multiple tools included with the small program called studio both sit on the taskbar when added to the taskbar

Geez, I feel like a dunce. I've got the screen recorder SnagIt 11. It appears to be much like the screen-capture program you recommended.  A capture of a capture. Maybe in future versions, VLC's record function will capture VLC settings to play that file. Thanks.

Awe lol Snagit is definitely good,it is a bit like trying to snip an expanded context menu or the properties as soon as click on the screen it will disappear so that's where a 1/3 party tool works, changing VLC's settings then instigating the recording you have left the settings area.
Glad to have helped thanks

I should have also thanked crystal (strive4peace). Her link to instructions on how to save equalizer settings in VLC, in the end, turned out to be the solution. Once I saved those settings, they stuck when I recorded, using the VLC record operation (red button), a portion of a very long memorial service mp4. It was such a simple fix. I've seen this question on a number of lists, Crystal has given us a simple solution that does not require screen capture. Here, for convenience, is Crystal's link to the article on how to save VLC equalizer settings. http://www.stufinnis.co.uk/vlcequalizersave.html
Thanks again.

you're welcome ~ happy to help

there is a way to unclose the question and close it again differently, if you wish to try to figure that out to split the points differently. As I usually answer questions instead of asking them, I don't know how to do that!
