I would hope so since I designed the interface myself.

Is this 100% accessible?

Yes, as long as
"Virtual Capture Device/What You Hear"
is selected in the
"Recording source"
combo box.

Ok, got it and got it installed! So when I get a chance I will try it out.
So this will record anything that comes thru the speakers or sound card?

Okay let's try this again. This time the package is an installer.
Although this version is not very portable thanks to the abysmal
failure of Enigma Virtual Box.

Ah I see. I suspect it is the Enigma Virtual Box packaging that is
interfering. I don't have the time right now, but I guess I will
just have to create a standard installer later.

Hi Carlos,

I may have been a bit unclear. I am running Windows 8.1--not XP.
What I meant to say is that ever since Windows 7, when something
crashes, you get that message: 'The <program name> has stopped
working; You can check for a solution on the web or close the
program.' You get the choice of closing the program or checking on
the web for a solution. Sometimes as in the case of Virtual
Recorder, all you get is the close the program button. This message
occurs in versions of Windows after XP.
Apparently, I wasn't clear on that in my message.

That's what happens when I try running Virtual Recorder. I tried
both at the Windows level with administrator privileges or at the
command line as stated in the earlier post.

Hi Ron,
Unfortunately, you may be a victim of running on an outdated OS. I
should have thought of this before, but the virtual capture device
relies on the WASAPI loopback feature like Audacity and GoldWave
which is not available in XP.

Hi Carlos,

I was game to try it. When I unzipped it and tried running it, I
got the classic Windows post XP message: 'Virtual Recorder has
stopped
working: check for a solution; close the program.' What gives?

Anyone want to give this thing a try? It works rather well at
this point in my opinion. You can record to flac, mp3, or wav.
Other formats could be easily added. You can record either from
the virtual audio capture device, a sound card/device, or both at
the same time. You can assign global hotkeys to
start/stop/pause/resume recording and configure it to run from
the system tray or even completely hidden. You can schedule
recordings using command line parameters.
-r to record
-t to set the duration of the recording in the format hours,
minutes, and seconds. for example, -t 01:20:00 -x to have the
program automatically close when it is done recording.

The timer functionality was already built-in to ffmpeg so it
didn't require much effort to add. I was able to make the
program very portable using Enigma Virtual Box. What's great is
that all of the software involved is either free or open source.
An installer and brief documentation will come later. For now I
just want to see if anyone else finds it useful and how well it
works. It's only about 13 Megs compressed Rob so I hope you don't
mind me putting it up on the server. Download link is below.

Well we have progress. I have a version which can record and stop.
Allows you to select between flac, MP3, and wav formats. You
can also select the sampling rate, bitrate, the number of
channels, the target folder, and a prefix for the file name.
The date and time are always appended to the file name so a name
is automatically generated even if you don't type a prefix. I'm
not quite ready to upload a test version, but probably in a few
hours. Other things I would like to add are, assignable global
hotkeys, tray minimization functionality, some way to start
scheduled recordings using the Task Scheduler, and the ability
to record from both the virtual audio capture device and a
second device simultaneously. Like a microphone for example.
That last part will probably be the trickiest and take the
longest to implement, but I'm hopeful it should at least be
possible.

You can find Windows binaries of ffmpeg here.
http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ Download the static builds
since they are compiled as a single executable. And be prepared
to do lots of reading/research since ffmpeg literally has
hundreds of command line options. You can start with the
official documentation here.

Hi all,

This FFMPEG sounds good, where does one find it?
