I followed the steps in How to record internal audio with XVidCap? (Not with Microphone) but I still can't get audio to record when recording a video app. Playback produces a pulsed buzz are roughly 1 second intervals. pa volume control shows the record levels for recording by xvidcap to be right and corresponding the levels shown on the ALSA capture, which the video app outputs. Any ideas?

I'm running Lucid

Can you give us some screenshots or information of what is your current input configuration on your sound panel?

The trick is to link your recording input to your speakers output so it will record the sounds that are played on your output device but without information on this configuration it will be hard to help you.
