    sound problems with recordmydesktop

    Please note that I am NOT trying to record sound with a microphone. Please do not link to the skype video.

    I am trying to get sound recorded from the window application I am running. I have tried changing from Alsa to Pulse Audio and all that does is cause recordmydesktop to hang when encoding. I let it sit for 30 minutes on a 15 second video and it never moved from 0%

    I have checked alsamixer and nothing is muted. I ran gtkrecordmydesktop and set sound to the Default device and it did not work at all.

    What am I doing wrong?

    That video is for people trying to record from the microphone.

    Thumbs down Re: sound problems with recordmydesktop

    In recordmydesktop I changed the Advanced>Sound>Device name from DEFAULT to default. (not sure if this is needed)
    Then I installed pavucontrol using
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
    Run pavucontrol and go to the recording tab while recordmydesktop is actively recording something, you will see an item called
    'ALSA plug-in[recordmydesktop]:ALSA capture from'
    You must change this to 'Monitor of Internal Audio Analog Stereo'

    Best Regards,
    Will
