Sound recording from USB mic interference

Bug #366265 reported by amw3465 on 2009-04-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I've got a Logitech quickcam pro 9000 webcam and I'm using its built in microphone as a system wide default sound recorder. I have used the same mic with Ubuntu Intrepid, Ubuntu Jaunty alpha, beta and release candidate without any problems and have been able to use various programs eg skype, recordmydesktop with perfect sound recording quality. However, I'm now using Jaunty final fully updated 64 bit edition and am now experiencing problems. Basically I'm getting clicking sounds when ever I record, my voice is still heard but there is clear clicking sound interference. I'm attaching a very brief sound recording so you can understand what I mean.

Update: I've just tried a different cam with inbuilt mic (Logitech quickcam pro 4000) and exactly the same problem appears.

Update: Bizarly the sound problem has now disappeared, works fine now! I've not had any updates so not sure what's happened.
