I’m wondering what I am missing. I have a logitec USB webcam with a mic. I use it for Team Speak, and Skype, so I know it works (I literally just placed a test call in skype to confirm…)
I am trying to record a screen cast in OpenSUSE 11.3 and KDE4 with audio. Using any application that will do it.
I have tried gtkrecordmydesktop… but when I click on the “advanced” button to setup my audio… nothing happens… so I moved on. (it is supposed to present a window with options for setup… like sound source…)
I tried xvidcap, but I don’t know what “device” to point the capture at. When I try to record from /dev/dsp (the default device) I get an error that says it cannot identify the file type. What “device” do I need to point to to get it to use my mic?
I have read about half a dozen forums about the issue, and many of them say that normally it is a mixer problem. I have systematically gone through my mixer item by item adjusting capture settings, mute, and volume levels on each item, then recorded to see if I got sound… and I got nothing.
I know the device works, and I can get it to work in some programs (team speak, and skype), but How to I tell xvidcap to use it???
I found my device in the /dev list… it is
But when I point to that I get the same error.
I am not stuck on any one program to do this but I need to be able to record screen casts with synchronized audio in Linux. I am not afraid of the console or shell scripts… can anyone offer some suggestions… I have a working mic… I just need something that can use it.
The best recommendation I’ve heard (so far) is running VNC and using camstudio in windows… but since my windows box is the same as my linux box… that is a bit difficult… I really need a real linux solution.
I have trouble believing there isn’t a higher demand for this.
