This is Thinkpad L430, pretty fast machine. Should
I have tried this one:
ffmpeg -y -f v4l2 -thread_queue_size 800 -video_size 800x448 -i /dev/video0 -f alsa -thread_queue_size 10000 -ac 1 -ar 14400 -i default -q:v 5 output.webm; mplayer output.webm; ls -l output.webm
and that one works without warnings of the
thread_queue_size, maybe it would work with less
of it, but with 3000 it was still warning.
Yet, the result that sound is interrupted in WEBM
and MP4 and MKV formats is still same. If the
video is 15 seconds, 3 seconds before the sound is
off, and I could see on screen that only 10+
seconds were recorded.
OGV format is working well.
MPG format is working well but not with less than
15 fps, which is unrelated, so I can record it
with 640x480 without problems it has more fps.
If video is 7 seconds, sound is off about on 5th
