Last year I recorded material for use as on-line lectures for my students using my laptop’s built in camera and a USB microphone using guvcview.
This year I have to each my classes remotely again but guvcview doesn’t record audio anymore. Using either the built-in or usb microphone I record video just fine with guvcview (guvcview-2.0.6-8.fc34.x86_64), and audio seems to be detected and appears to be recorded, because the vu-meter style blocks appear and function as they would seem to be supposed to work. If I select the USB microphone as input and then scratch the microphone screen the blocks peg into the red. But the videos produced have no audio when I go to playback/shotcut them. I’ve tried two different thinkpads running Fedora 34, same behaviour.
Otherwise audio seems to be working fine on these laptops both playback all sorts of audio media just fine, and people on zoom meetings hear me fine… There was some audiosystem change with 34, is guvcview just depreciated and no longer working, is there something else I can use to record from the camera with audio?
