  • Sound level meter

What’s Not

  • Dbus interface doesn’t seem to be working
  • M4A format not working (generated file not playable)
  • Format selection is buggy and not always effective at runtime

I like audio-recorder as it is the only practical way I have found to record something I am listening to in a browser.
I use Fedora-34, since there is no Flatpak for audio-recorder I installed Snap first then audio-recorder.
Unfortunately it fails with

[chris@fedora ~]$ audio-recorder
