I have a video card (AverMedia EZMaker Gold), which has only video input (either RCA or S-Video). In order to record video and audio I connect the VCR's video to the card, and its audio to the line-in on the sound card. So far so good...
Now, a strange thing - when I connect the audio to the sound card and turn the computer's speakers on, I hear the sound from the VCR. When I connect a guitar to the line-in I don't hear it... Strange - but I have no idea whether this has anything to do with my problem.
And my problem:
I can record the audio using audacity.
I can record the video using mencoder ("mencoder tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video0 -ovc libdv -vf scale=720:576 -o foo.avi").
When I try to use them both on the same time, one doesn't work.
I want to use "mencoder tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video0:adevice=[sound card] -ovc libdv -vf scale=720:576 -oac pcm -o foo.avi", but I have no idea what to write as an audio device.
I've tried /dev/dsp (OSS emulation) which recorded nothing, and various hw.$DEV options which gave me the following message "Unable to open 'hw.$DEV': No such file or directory".
What should I do???
Thank you very much,
