I am also have non-ekiga-specific trouble recording from USB webcams, e.g.

$ arecord -t wav -f cd -d 5 -D webcam > testing.wav

should record 5 seconds of sound from the PCM device called "webcam" that I have defined in my
.asoundrc file as: {
       type plug
       slave {
               pcm "hw:1,0"

(sound card index 1). However, depending on the webcam, I either get 5 seconds of silence instead,
or arecord hangs, or it actually works in one case. There's definitely something funny going on...


Yeah, both Ekiga and Audacity _show_ the USB microphone, they just won't _use_ it.
