I'm trying to get input from a USB audio device in gstreamer. I test
using pidgin and gstreamer-properties. I can the hear the audio from
the USB device but only for a while (3 or 4 seconds), and then the sound
gets choppy and then shuts down.
There's practically no CPU usage in the gstreamer application.
I tried recording from the device using arecord, and it works well.
