I am trying to get my USB microphone working with VLC.

It works if I only load my microphone with

vlc alsa://hw:2,0

but for

vlc v4l2:// :v4l-vdev="/dev/video0" :v4l-adev="alsa://hw:2,0" :v4l-norm=1 :v4l-frequency=-1 :v4l-caching=300 :v4l-chroma="" :v4l-fps=-1.000000 :v4l-samplerate=44100 :v4l-channel=0 :v4l-tuner=-1 :v4l-audio=-1 :v4l-stereo :v4l-width=1600 :v4l-height=896 :v4l-brightness=-1 :v4l-colour=-1 :v4l-hue=-1 :v4l-contrast=-1 :no-v4l-mjpeg :v4l-decimation=1 :v4l-quality=100 --sout "#transcode{vcodec=mp1v,vb=5024,scale=2,acodec=mpga,ab=192,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=mpeg1,dst=/tmp/test.mpg}}"

I get no sound.

Is this still an issue. Also what type of microphone is this so we can provide a better assistance. –  Luis Alvarado Apr 2 '12 at 0:19
