Hi Michael,

This unfortunately doesn't work because the problem isn't the soundcard 
(output), but the webcam (input). Sound output is working fine 
(/dev/dsp0). But sound input should be /dev/dsp4 but is incorrectly also 
pointed to /dev/dsp0.

The rights and interests of the laboring man will be protected and cared
for not by our labor agitators, but by the Christian men to whom God in his
infinite wisdom has given control of property interests of the country, and
upon the successful management of which so much remains.
