Audiorecorder Plugin 2.8

The Audio Recorder Plugin (by Griga) adds the following features to the DVBViewer:

  • Direct MP3, Ogg Vorbis or Wave recording of (audio) broadcasts

  • Audio recording as MP3, Ogg Vorbis or Wave while playing a media file with DVBViewer. Thus the plugin may be used for conversion, e. g if you play a recorded mp2 file, you can record it again as MP3 or WAV.

  • Real-time conversion to 44.1 kHz for creating audio-CD compatible recordings

  • Can be used in conjunction with timed recordings, programmable via the DVBViewer's recorder interface.

  • Recording a video with DVBViewer, and at the same time recording the sound as MP3/OGG/WAV to an extra file. Proceed as follows:

The package contains the following files:

  • AudioRec.dll: Just put it into the DVBViewer/Plugins folder.

  • Readme.rtf

  • VorbisFile.dll

  • VorbisEnc.dll

  • Vorbis.dll

  • Ogg.dll

The last 5 files must be copied into the DVBViewer main directory. Important: For MP3 recording you additionally need the file lame_enc.dll, which is not included in this package, but can be easily found in the web (try and copy lame_enc.dll to the DVBViewer folder. The other files in the ZIP are not needed). The plugin has been testet with version 3.92 of the Lame MP3 Encoder. You may try other (later) versions, but the functioning of the plugin can not be guaranteed in this case.

How to use it

On the first page you should always select "stay connected to audio stream", otherwise you may encounter problems with the SkyStar 4.2 source-filter. Checking the second box, file-names will be automatically created. Now you must choose the audio format. Selecting a format, the corresponding tab-sheets will become visible. For MP3 for example there two additional pages for adjusting the format, for example setting the bit-rate and the sample-rate. You can also choose VBR (variable bit rate), CBR (constant bit rate) and ABR (average bit rate). For a detailed description have a look at the provided readme file.
