RTSP Stream as Audio Input

I recently stumbled on this article about using an rtsp stream as an audio input Audio input gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc camera stream

I tried to replicate it but as my stream was rtsps and had auth it took a bit of work. In the end I got the following which appears to be working:

rtspsrc location=rtsps://SOMEIP:PORT/ID?enableSrtp tls-validation-flags=generic-error user-id=USERIDHERE user-pwd=PWDHERE latency=0 select-stream=stream_1 ! rtppcmadepay ! alawdec ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! audio/x-raw, rate=16000 ! filesink location=/dev/stdout

I am just a bit confused on what next steps would be to actually test and confirm its working. When I tried doing a wake word and asking what time it was it just sort of hung waiting
