Record voice-over audio

Basically what would be required is the option to record audio while a video track is already is playing.

Now we must see if this should be done from the Project Bin add voice over track and have the record button on the track header. Or if we should do it from the Clip Monitor just like the screen capture already works.

We could add a "record button" to audio tracks.
When triggered, it would remember the timeline position, start playing timeline and start recording audio using ffmpeg (using something similat to what we do in src/monitor/recmanager.cpp, line 240 and following with screen grab.

When the recording is stopped, we could add the recorded file to the Bin, and add the clip to the track that started the recording at cursor position. That would bring some kind of voiceover recording.

One limitation is that this would probably not allow monitoring of audio levels. Another (probably cleaner) option would be to use QtMultimedia to do the audio recording (see task: T9292 )

I would prefer it for it to be a special track only for that or maybe even better right click on the audio header track and activate it to make it record. What do you think?

The track should definitely get added to the bin after recording. But would it be possible to see the waveform while it is recording? Something like in Ardour, Audacity or Qtractor?

QtMultimedia seems to be the ideal option. Maube we can have the audio meter in the track header? I can think of a little UI for this "special" track...
