Why Pulse isn’t working with certain audio recording software?

I installed Pulse Volume Control recently due to the near impossibility of recording sound through my current hardware and ALSA configurations. The problem is that if I run applications like ffmpeg or RMD, it won’t register under the recording tab but this works perfectly with gnome-sound-recorder. Documentations reveal that both of these recording softwares can be used with Pulse, however none of them is effective in my case.

What should I do in order to make Pulse recognize that the applications are recording audio?
