Hi all,

I would like to watch a video DVD with totem and
send the audio to a file instead of the sound
system (that is, capture the DVD audio as
it flows).

Could someone point me to the right direction?

I tried adding a
file to my homedir, containing
pcm.fileout {
   type file
   slave.pcm "hw:0,0"
   file alsaout.raw
but can't figure out how to actually activate

My installation is ubuntustudio (gutsy, i686) with

I picked ALSA for "Music and Movies > SOund playback"
in System > Preferences > Audio (=gnome-sound-properties)

The soundcard selected in QAMix is "VIA8237 (hw:0)"

Thanks all in advance,
