It looks like this works for me (parec does record silence from a null
sink). I noticed that the file size stays constant for a while and then
it jumps a lot and then it stays again constant for a while. The
interval between the jumps might be about 10 seconds. Maybe that the
processing happens in so big chunks has led you to believe that it
doesn't work at all?
