Hi everybody , I think that I screwed up my raspberry or something.
Ive plugged a USB camera to use it as a camera AND a microphone , and I use my monitor as an audio output through the HDMI. Ive tested the mic on the camera , (with the arecord --format=S16_LE --duration=5 …etc) recorded some audios so I could make sure that it was working , everything went fine , the sound was coming out of the monitor like it should as well. So ive installed the awesomealexa module to my magicmirror , I did everything right , but when the magic mirror opened it said a very brief -Hello but nothing else , it looked like it was recognizing my mic because whenever I said -ALEXA- the icon would lit up . but it wasnt answering me or anything. So heres where I think I screwed up . probably the problem was with the alexa module and Ive shouldve reinstalled but I dont think I thought about it at the time…so Ive started to check on the internet to fix the mic or the output device and set the mic and the HDMI as the standard output with the .asoundrc and changing the alsa.conf . And now my mic is not recording anymore , its still getting recognized on the arecord -l . but now whenever I try to record something , even when Im setting the arecord duration to 5 seconds , it doesnt stop recording like it should , its stays there forever . so I dont know if Its glitched or if I did something stupid. Can someone please help me . I really dont want to restore my raspberry to factory reset…Ive made so many changes already into the magicmirror module it would be awful to lose evertyhing.
