gtk-recordmydesktop and hardware (usb and record from sound card)
I want to do two different things in gtk-recordmydesktop.
1, record directly from the soundcard (so no distortion from speakers or microphone).
2, record from a usb microphone.
I can do (1) just using sound recorder already, but of course no video.
As far as (2) is concerned, I set advanced->sound to pulse, DEFAULT, or hw:0,0 or hw:x,y (x and y are any combinations of 0, 1, or 2). (all the hw combinations cause gtk-recordmydesktop to crash)
I have a choice between the motherboard (STAC92xx) and the CMI8738 PCI card. (only the latter sees the usb microphone for some reason). The CMI8738 shows up as card 0 in /proc/asound.
Any idea of where I can find what numbers to put in gtk-recordmydesktop->advanced->sound? I am feeling rather stupid, but I couldn't make much sense of what I have found on google.
Plus. I am using fedora core 10 but with a 2.6.29 kernel and I am only running pulseaudio.
Jack looks complicated, but is that the only way to go.
Hope many others find any reply useful.
