    Question Is there NO Way To Get The Internal Mic Workng on Backtrack??

    I have spent quiet some time on Linux and BackTrack (although I'm new to forum here). So now I wish to make some Tutorial videos on Backtrack. I got "xvidcap" and "recordmydesktop" all ready and working on Backtrack. But they are not recording Audio from my internal HP DV5 Mic. I checked other apps and mic is not working at all in BackTrack.

    Things I have tried :

    --> Check input volume and all in 'alsamixer' ..

    --> Configure the alsa.conf file and added the line 'option snd-intel model=hp-dv5'
    and reloaded alsa

    --> Searched the internet the whole day long (Yes! whole day) ,

    it seems nobody has got the internal mic working on BackTrack since they have posted solutions like make a video recording and then ADD the sound later by editing the video is "lives" or such video editor.

    I want to add the sound AS I'm making the video NOT Later on.

    Please help me out.

    (Please Do Not post such replies as BackTrack is built for pen testing only so it wouldn't do this and that . Thanks)

    Is it feasible to install BT as a VM and then use the host to do the video and audio recording? I think this might be the easiest solution. Other than that, I'm not sure.

    If the ScreenCaster is encoding "on-the-fly" then it takes up too much system resources + the resources needed by the base OS + those needed by VMware OS , will put too much strain on the system. It's doable by not desirable.

    Can anyone here tell me why is it that BT hasn't got the mic working, when it's built over Ubuntu and when I'm on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (or any other distro) internal laptop mic works great??

    Please help me out, any knowledge you have would be great.
    BT developers should look into this, very annoying problem.

    Make sure there is no other sound device such as HDMI (IEC958). If yes, uncheck them. You can install gnome-alsamixer for GUI.

    installed gnome-alsamixer, there's an ATIR6xx HDMI tab there, where there is a IEC958, the box next to it, is unchecked.

    Are you using the digital sound (enabled in Bios?)..Enable it if not. Then try to set Iput source = Front Mic..Also turn up volume in Front mic and front mic boost, or lower one of them and the other one down..Do not forget to enable the digital sound (S/PDIF)

    Try it.
