Description of problem:
I can successfully run gnome-sound-recorder after having to install multiple
addtional gstreamer plugins (shame on you, Redhat, for not having something like
this a bit more pre-configured!), and I can also record sound. However, whenever
I try to save my soundbyte, it saves as a 0-byte file and is unplayable. As a
side note, if i try to save again after saving already, the program crashes with
Running from xterm produces no specific error reference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gstreamer-mad and gstreamer-oss if you have your sound set up with
the out-of-the-box configuration.
2. Run gnome-sound-recorder
3. Record something
4. Save it.
Actual Results: The file saved was 0 bytes and wouldn't play in XMMS or
Expected Results: File should be openable in any program that can play it and
should be more than 0 bytes.
