General :: How To Record Playing Sound

May 1, 2010

I found that Mike Oldfield "Tr3s Lunas" being played backward (from the end to begining) is an addictive, magic music. For this I used alsaplayer. Now I want to record these reversed music, not everyone player is able to play backward, how I can do that?

Now I am using some kind of a mutant ubuntu, say version between 9.10 an 10.04, with gnome desktop and alsa sound system.

General :: Buzzing Sound From Speakers ONLY When No Sound Is Playing Ubuntu

Feb 21, 2010

This problem presented itself upon upgrading to ubuntu 9.10. Any time something affects the sound system the buzz goes away. If a song plays, no buzz. If I simply adjust or mute the volume, no buzz. But after 10 seconds of no sound related activity, the buzz returns. This is a very loud and aggravating buzz, most likely made worse by the fact that I run my sound through an amplifier.

General :: Record Sound From Both Speakers And Mic?

Apr 15, 2010

I currently have pclinuxos 2007 (updated to kde4). I put on webinars, and like to record them using recordmydesktop. All is working fine by putting a splitter in my speaker out, and feeding it back into my line in. This only works when I have analog loopback not muted.My problem is that pclinuxos is now putting out there 2010 version, and there is no way I can see to un-mute the analog loopback. It does not show up as any options onkmix.... I am going to attach a couple pictures one with my old kmix, and one with the new 2010 version.My question is, how can I get back that analog loopback, or is there another way to get the sound to record from both my speaker and my mic?

General :: Mplayer No Sound When Playing Some Movies?

Feb 27, 2010

that's a bit of a strange problem, that somehow crept into my system. It used to work fine.Here is the problem as far as I can identify it. When I try to play certain video files with mplayer, there is no sound. As far as I can tell, it is only an issue with ac3 and dts sound tracks (using the ffmpeg decoder).Mplayer says:

Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 6 ch, s16le, 1536.0 kbit/33.33% (ratio: 192000->576000)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Stops Working After 1-5 Mins Of Playing Sound?

Dec 14, 2010

Playing a song works at first; then it quits after 1-5 minutes. If you select a different output device, it will work for another 1-5 minutes, but switching back to an already used up device will not play sound. Running 'sudo killall pulseaudio' resets everything and each output device works for another 1-5 minutes. This is on on 9.10.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Sound Stopped Working, IEC958 Light Turns On Instead Of Sound Playing?

Jan 30, 2011

The sound stopped working on my Macbook Pro 1,1. It was working fine before, and I can't think of any changes I made that would make it stop working. I know it's not a hardware problem because the Apple sound plays when I turn on the computer. Everything is unmuted in ALSA Mixer. None of the hardware options in Sound Preferences produce sound. Plugging in headphones or speakers does not solve the problem. I'm using 10.10.One curiosity: Whenever I do something that would normally cause sound to play, the optical audio red light in the headphone jack turns on, but no sound plays.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Record Sound At All In 9.10 ?

May 26, 2010

I just upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04, then rapidly to 9.10, when support for 8.10 was finally phased out. I've been trying for a few days to figure out how to record sound and can't get anything working. Sound playback works fine.

Here's what I've tried so far:


The terminal programs execute and quit after ten seconds, as expected, and create a sound of the appropriate length in my home directory, which is what I want. They don't report any errors, but the sound file they create is just soft background static with occasional soft clicks. Audacity also just records soft static with soft occasional clicks. The Gnome Sound recorder does slightly better, recording almost-intelligible sounds with bad static distortion.

I've verified that sound levels are not muted using the mixer, and have run through the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide [url]. No joy.

Here's the output of lscpi -v:

Software :: Make Sure Under VLC It Will Record The Sound?

Apr 23, 2011

I have input the sound from my TVcard into the line-in port of my soundcard. In VLC, I could view TV signal with both video and sound but when i click on "record"it only records video without the sound at all. When I view this in pulseaudio volume control, under the recording tab, there seems to be no application taking over when I click on record button under VLC. Yet if I start up gnome-recorder, I could capture the sound when I view TV with VLC and clearly under pulseaudio volume control I see recording application is that of gnome-recorder. What's the deal here? How could I make sure under VLC it will record the sound?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Alsa: Cannot Record Sound

Mar 17, 2011

I've got sound - I hear all the system sounds, I can play sound files, CDs, etc. But I have not been able to record and play back anything with success.

Originally, when I would record (either with arecord or with audacity) I would get extremely low quality sound, with lots of noise and crackling, and my recorded voice was barely audible (even with volume turned up to max). I played with alsamixer for hours without being able to improve matters.

Things are worse now. I tried installing alsa-firmware, as indicated at SDB:Audio troubleshooting - openSUSE. I also tried updating alsa following instructions given at SDB:Alsa-update - openSUSE. I'm not sure which of these changes did it, but the result is that I can no longer record ANYTHING at all. I get absolutely nothing, not even the low quality noise and crackling I was getting before. It's as if there is no audio input at all.

Uninstalling alsa-firmware and reverting back to the older alsa version (1.0.20) didn't change a thing.

I'm running openSUSE 11.2, kernel, alsa 1.0.20. My sound card is a Creative X-Fi (by the way, yast cannot detect my card, another problem I have never solved).

After upgrade today, I cannot record sound. All the equipment works fine when I boot into Windoze...

Running Audacity from a terminal gives me this message as it starts:

Expression 'stream->capture.pcm' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3653

Google has thrown up some old posts (some here) - none really relevant and a hint on a mailing list that it may be a bug...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Record Webcam With Sound?

Nov 6, 2010

Is there currently any way to record a webcam video with sound? This used to be possible back in the day before PulseAudio was installed by default (by using Mencoder, following guides such as [URL] and [URL] ) but that method doesn't work any more: /dev/dsp doesn't exist. I've also tried Cheese and that again just records a video with no audio. All the articles I can find on the topic are from the good old pre-Pulse days.

I've tried messing about with the commands a bit to use the Alsa Pulse device (defined in /etc/asound.conf) since neither mencoder or ffmpeg seem to have built in Pulse input support:

ffmpeg -f alsa -i pulse -f video4linux2 -s 640x480 -i /dev/video0 out.mpg
- this works, but the audio is more than a second out of sync with the video, which is a bit useless (I'm trying to record myself playing guitar), and the video is very slow (<1 fps) for the first few seconds.
mencoder tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=640:height=480:device=/dev/video0:fps=30:forceaudio:alsa:adevice=pulse -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=64:mode=3 -o test.avi
- this doesn't work, I get the following error:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Record Sound From Soundcard In 11.04?

Jul 25, 2011

I was, untill very recently, using ubuntu 10.10, and have just upgraded. In Ubuntu 10.10, I was easily able to record sound from my sound card in audacity. For whatever reason, since upgrading I have been unable to do so. I have no problem recording sound from my laptop's microphone, but can't seem to find an option to record from the sound card. I believe it's the same version of Audacity, so all I can assume is that it's an Ubuntu issue.
