Re: Recording with arecord -need help
I thought I had better come back and update on this one (real world issues taken hold over the last two weeks)
Have been unable to compile and install alsa with the snd_aloop module, (and severely buggered my sound setup in the process!) which I believe is what is required in order to capture sounds coming through from the web. I may try again on a clean system.
Only been able to capture sounds using jack when jack output is enabled within the playing application. The .asoundrc settings crap out or the application refuses to play if left as alsa playback. That said, jack_capture is a neat little command line tool.
When natty comes around, I may leave pulse-audio in place, and then use pulse to capture all my onboard sounds.
No longer participating......
