Dear PulseAudio community,
My apologies if this is either a double post or simply a stupid question. As the subject line suggests I'm interested in recording something like a Skype conversation. I say something like a Skype conversation because I work with some similar voip teleconferencing programs other than Skype.
I've been looking in several places for some information. Hopefully I'm close to having a solution, but I'm not quite there.
pacat -r -d alsa_output.pci-0000_00_14.2.analog-stereo.monitor
I've used the above command to capture audio passing through my sound server. I've also added a virtual device in my /etc/alas/pulse-default.conf file. So I can also capture that audio with other programs such as Audacity. So I need to include my microphone to the recording.
I've found the following command, which doesn't work for me, to pass two streams:
pacat -r -d alsa_input.pci-0000_00_14.2.analog-stereo | pacat -p -d
The above results in:
Stream error: No such entity
write() failed: Broken pipe
So, is there a way to combine my two devices? I'm assuming something like a pacmd script will do the trick, but I don't yet understand how the module-combine statements work.
