Okay, after about a full workday of Googling for what I thought would be a simple task, it's time to pull over and ask for directions:
I'm trying to use an application (e.g., mplayer) to play sound that comes in my sound card (via the mic jack). (What I'm really trying to do is sync a sports broadcast by putting a delay on AM audio, as described here
. I'm stuck at the part where it says "this shouldn't be too difficult".)
I've seen some hints that there might be code-heavy solutions using LADSPA or some JACK SDK, but there's just gotta be a simpler way. I'm hoping for something like
mplayer -delay -7 - < /dev/mic
but I'm darned if I can find it.
Can anybody see what I'm missing? I'm sure there are plenty of other sports fans who would find this useful for syncing radio with the digital TV feed...
