ffmpeg can be installed through termux by installing the package mpv:

$ apt-get install mpv

Now, on linux, I record sound with the command

 ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i plughw:0,0 recording.mp3

This commnand does not work on android for me. What would be the right -f flag argument?

What is the ffmpeg command to record sound from the terminal on android?

  • Does this help? play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skvalex.alsamixer (you need to be rooted, and I've never needed it, so I can't say whether it works, hence a comment instead of an answer). – user207189 Feb 8 '17 at 15:49
  • The above is actually meant to work with CallRecorder, but it's not entirely impossible that ffmpeg recognises it, once it's installed and configured – user207189 Feb 8 '17 at 15:56
