After 2 days of struggling, I cannot set the default input as my webcam microphone.
I still have as input my sound card (where no mic is plugged !)
I can select the default microphone and set it to the web cam one
pulseaudio & pavucontrol
But pavumeter continues to use as input the micro alsa pcm on front:0 (ES1371 ...) via DMA (ie the sound card one)
For an unknown reason, pulseaudio applet shows me as default input the web cam micro...
If I type
Which seems to show that the mic should be the web cam one
I tried to set the default mic in .asoundrc but it has done no change
Changes done in Ubuntu menu
did not help
I am wondering if it is not because my version of pulseaudio
pulseaudio volume meter run from the command line (pavumeter) takes the sound card as input but the "pulseaudio volume meter" lauched from pulseaudio applet takes the web cam ... which may shows that there are not using the same code
version ubuntu 8.04 (hardy)
Has somebody an idea to set the web cam microphone as input far ALL applications
Is it something related to my pulseaudio version ?
Thanks for your help
