I have a "Little" script for screencasting - I'll skip to the good part.
In my avconv command I record 3 different sources simultaneously to 3 different tracks. The only way I know of getting audio from pulseaudio is like so:
-f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse
Unfortunately, this results in 3 identical entries in the "Recording" tab of pavucontrol. Looking at the man page there should be an option to record like so:
-f pulse -ac 2 -i <devicename> -name <trackname>
Unfortunately, it requires installation of
libpulse-simple which I can't find on my system or in my repository.
Is there a way to have a
name like option using
If not, how do I get
libpulse-simple installed on (x)ubuntu 12.04?
Edit: It looks like the ubuntu version is compiled wrong (yet again)
The question is now "How do I compile this without breaking my system"
I would like the presets available in
/usr/share/avconv to stay available and be able to revert with the package manager (So no dirty hacks like dumping it in
Edit2: I've compiled avconv with libpulse enabled, but now x11grab is missing! I can't find a list of
./configure options but I want to enable everything I possibly can so I don't have to deal with missing feature after feature. Anyone know where to find such a list? How about whatever args they use for the official ubuntu packages?
