I do not hear a click but I hear the great new violin and a spirited Irish piece. 

Very nice.

(The audio seemed a little low here if you want to know.  No problem however.)

 (Maybe you are hearing some creature clapping to the rhythm :)

Maybe I did not hear it because your audio was low.  I had my MAC cranked all the way up and the music was still very soft.   Give me some audio to spare.

It has a great mellow, dark and pleasant sound in your hands Barry. Thanks for the post.

What an incredible difference in sound from one device to another. I agree 100% that the Samsung did had the best result.
Those strings are called "Overture Ultra Synthelon"
What strings do you normally buy?

@Barry ,

First let me say: great playing, I really enjoyed the Irish tunes.

Second, my Concert sounded much better (or at least I thought so) with Zyex strings on it, but you might want to check as to what others like for fiddle playing as I think most fiddle players tend to go for the steel cores. Strings really do make a difference.  Of course the fiddle itself will sound better and better on its own when it's been played a while. 

Third, I thought the Samsung was the best sound and video quality.  However, you might want to ask @KindaScratchy about her setup, which seems to be top notch. I've got a pretty good recording setup, but I don't do video, so I can't be of much help along those lines, beyond telling you which one of your setups sounds best to me.

Test 3 was by far the best, both in terms of audio and video. Each one was progressively better, but the last one was the best.

In the first one, the video resolution was pretty low and the sound was low as well, as Oliver pointed out. I heard the click at :23, but it was very soft and I can't say that I noticed any degradation of sound after the click. Seemed the same to me.

In the second one, both video and audio were better, but noticed some trailing on your arm as it moved. Better lighting might have improved that.

In the third one, video and audio were much better. In fact, the mic seemed to be much more sensitive to the extent that it picked up some sort of ambient sound in the room. Was there a fan, air conditioner or washing machine running nearby?

Your playing was great in all three, by the way.

I heard two clicks on the first video, one at 23 and one towards the end.

I heard a bunch of clicks towards the end of second video (beginning at 1:25) and water running sound after you finish playing, and like Diane said, there were some trailing.

the third one has a machine churning sound, and at the very beginning, there were the static sound (white noise?) The third one sounds the loudest but you may need a better sound proof room to do the recording.

I used earphone to listen to them. Although the third video sound the loudest, I like the sound in second one the best. I think the loudness in the third make your violin sound bright and harsh.

p.s. I think the first video only has 1/3 of the volume of the third and half of the second, and the second has 3/5 of the third. I used full volume the first time on one ear and half volume on both ears the second time, and I could not stand the third video over 50% of my mic.

Great playing! I am in a fiddle class, and my problems are I can't play fast, I can't memorize the music, and I can't handle the repetitions! I guessed I should stay in moderate speed (60bpm to 100bpm) classical without repeats or rondo.
