It works on my end, so I guess the docs are outdated?
I’m still having the question, my snap appears to be working but I don’t know exactly why.
Another snap that uses the GStreamer pulsesink plugin works.
I don’t know if this is intentional actually. CC @jdstrand
Long time ago we said we would not grant recording automatically, only playback. Maybe the part that made that work broke over time.
The docs are outdated and I updated them. Please see this forum topic for more details: Pulseaudio recording
