Hi Fabian,

Phonon doesn't support capture yet. This is indeed on our roadmap and would
probably go through using MediaSource.

Subject: Access to microphone with Phonon


I have been looking for information about some details about Phonon 
programming since a few days now, but I am not able to find something 
matching neither on the Phonon site nor on the Phonon library 
documentation on the KDE site (although there is a matching category):

I am looking for some information about writing an application that can 
access an audio input device (e. g. a microphone). If I understand 
Phonon's architecture correctly, this would be some kind of 
MediaSource, wouldn't it? I think this would also match to this 
documentation category:

Unfortunately, recording is not documented very well. Could someone on 
this list help me accessing a microphone?
