Jamin and ardour and jack are the same tools I use when multi-tracking. Along with some synths and sequencers, like qsynth and Hydrogen-drums.
I did not mean you "can't" use oss, just that it's being superseded.
Oss should still be in your kernel, I hope. Mine is.
Your output from mplayer confirms no audio was recorded...
A: 0.0 V: 0.0 A-V: 0.038 ct: 0.000 1/ 1 ??% ??% ??,?% 0 0
That's all I got, sorry....
p.s. make sure you are ($USER) are part of the "audio group" as well as the "video group" (probably already set).
check the $USER has permission to access the hardware...
In order to use your webcam you need to have permission to use /dev/video0.
If you use udev (which is default as of kernel 2.6.13) you only need to be in the group video. You can check it with:
To add a user to the group run under root:
# gpasswd -a <username> video
Set permissions of the device:
# chmod 666 /dev/video0
same deal with audio....
Audio Device may actually be /dev/dsp (digital signal processor)
are you able to record audio without video? Like a test record track?
My problems were different, I had everything and a green screen,
although that ArchLinux page sorted that for me, the page does not really go into sound.
so you might check your also config as well, with the alsa script....

invoke the script with --help to see your options, like checking for a newer version of alsa-info.sh, and auto uploading the results and redirecting the output to a file you can read after.

We have not mentioned Pulse....(?) but that may be a Mandriva thing.
see how you go, regards Glenn
