[FFmpeg-user] Sometimes a lot of noise

To record audio I use the following command:
    ffmpeg -y \
      -f oss \
      -i /dev/dsp \
      -ac 1 \
      -ar 22050 \
      -ab 64k \

The strange thing is that most of the time I have a good recording,
but sometimes the audio is faint and with a lot of white noise. (And
because of Murphy, this happens when I record a long audio.) Anybody
an idea why this happens? And what to do about it?
