Well, I was running JFW on an HP small laptop and did something which made
it freeze, or go silent. I was deleting the contents of a folder on a stick,
and after it was done. I was going to re-start after running safely remove,
when it froze. So, I thought

I would, which I'd done many times before just power it down and re-start.
Now the PC just lights up, but there is nothing occurring on the screen.
I've seen other windows 7 PCS forget the USB device is not a bootable
device, so I re-plugged in the USB stick, tried again, and nothing. Then, I
also thought I might have muted the sound card with f11, or somehow turned
it way down with f9 / f10, but, nothing happened.
It does heat up, but nothing is visible on the screen, no "beginning"
windows or anything at all.
Any ideas at all? f8, maybe? but isn't there at least some kind of message
which happens before f8 would work?
THANKS! Or, should I just attempt to install windows 10 using a USB or DVD?
Hmm! questions questions!

I have 4 soundcards on my computer, can I record all of them at once, I

also, what would be an amazing addition to the program is if we could make

No, recording from the virtual capture device will provide the best quality.
As I said even if your sound card has a
"Stereo Mix"/"What You Hear"
option, the stream is converted to analog and then back to digital when you
record. There is no conversion to analog when using the virtual capture

So you set for sound card and start the recording it will record what is
being inputted into the sound card say like a microphone hooked to the
computer?
Then when selecting sound card only it will only record something that has
been hooked to the line in to the soundcard?

people who's sound cards do not have a "Stereo Mix"/"What You Hear"

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 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?


On 2/21/2016 8:38 AM, Carlos wrote:
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

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.

Re: HP laptop, (NOT WORKING)

 

when graphic cards fail the laptop doesnt even boot up.
on some laptops the fan comes up but blank screen.
on others nothing only system lights comes up.
if you dont have a ssd can you hear the hard drive read?
if it starts reading that means the pc has passed the bios screen and
is trying to boot into the os.
and by read i meen long reads not just a small reed sound it should be
on all the time untill the desktop loads.
or you can try the following.
1. disconnect the laptop from the charger.
2. remove the battery.
3.press the power button on the laptop and keep it pressed for 5
seconds even 10 is good.
4. now only connect the charger and try booting it again.
if it boots up then shut it down remove the charger and only connect
the battery and boot it again.
if it boots up then connect the charger and run it for sometime.
also you can try connecting the laptop to an external display when you
have sighted help around and see if they get something on the display.
i have seen some laptops that shows signs of a graphics card failed
has booted up by the way spoken in the above steps. as this flushes
power out from your boards

aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them anyway. Then about a
year and a half ago, I was introduced with the Phonak behind the ear aids.
The one for the right ear is a transmitter and the one on the left is the
receiver. I just cannot say enough good about these aids and how much better
they work than the old ones. I no longer have the feeling that I am going to
scream when in a crowded noisy place. I would never suggest that they
replace normal hearing but they sure come closer than what I experienced
before. I just had them cleaned and adjusted and it is so slick. I put them
on, the tech puts a device around my neck and then he does all the adjusting
on his computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the left ear is still pretty
good and I pray it continues. On top of that, I have been in twice for

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?

-r to record
-t to set the duration of the recording in the format hours,

Allows you to select between flac, MP3, and wav formats. You

The date and time are always appended to the file name so a

If you have tinitis, you lose frequencies on the notes that have the tones in them if you know what I mean. The tone covers up your ability to hear those certain frequencies. My brother had it and he would immitate the way things like the radio sounded to him, and say he couldn't understand it if there was any bass in it. Pam.

I don’t often recommend products unless I am really pleased with them. I
just want to put a little plug in for the Phonak Cros hearing aids. I have
little or no hearing in my right ear because of nerve damage. I wore
in-ear aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them anyway. Then
about a year and a half ago, I was introduced with the Phonak behind the
ear aids. The one for the right ear is a transmitter and the one on the
left is the receiver. I just cannot say enough good about these aids and
how much better they work than the old ones. I no longer have the feeling
that I am going to scream when in a crowded noisy place. I would never
suggest that they replace normal hearing but they sure come closer than
what I experienced before. I just had them cleaned and adjusted and it is
so slick. I put them on, the tech puts a device around my neck and then he
does all the adjusting on his computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the
left ear is still pretty good and I pray it continues. On top of that, I
have been in twice for adjusting and they do not charge me at all. When I
was in Arizona, they charged for everything.

Well, I was running JFW on an HP small laptop and did something which
made
it freeze, or go silent. I was deleting the contents of a folder on a
stick,
and after it was done. I was going to re-start after running safely
remove,
when it froze. So, I thought

I would, which I'd done many times before just power it down and
re-start.
Now the PC just lights up, but there is nothing occurring on the screen.
I've seen other windows 7 PCS forget the USB device is not a bootable
device, so I re-plugged in the USB stick, tried again, and nothing. Then,
I
also thought I might have muted the sound card with f11, or somehow
turned
it way down with f9 / f10, but, nothing happened.
It does heat up, but nothing is visible on the screen, no "beginning"
windows or anything at all.
Any ideas at all? f8, maybe? but isn't there at least some kind of
message
which happens before f8 would work?
THANKS! Or, should I just attempt to install windows 10 using a USB or
DVD?
Hmm! questions questions!

Re: Carlos Virtual Recorder program

It will continue to be free.  I don't charge for utilities which are put together using all free/open source software.  Others may do so and that is their choice.  You can share the link with anyone else.  It should run on any modern version of Windows except for XP.  The virtual capture device relies on a feature which is not available in XP.  Of course I have not actually tested it on all editions of Windows on which it should theoretically run.  LOL that is another reason not to charge for it.  If I charge for it and something doesn't work, then I am obligated to try to fix it.  If it is free, I can justify only working on it when ever I'm in the mood.  I uploaded a new installer that fixes the desktop shortcut.  The download link is the same.

The sound card option allows you to record from the line-in or microphone for example.  Sorry about the desktop shortcut.  That is because I used the installer script of one of my other utilities as a template and forgot to change the line that points to the Virtual Recorder executable.  At least for the virtual capture device, the volume should always be the same as the source.  If it is low then you should check the volume of your player.  Although I may be able to add a volume control in a future update.

No, recording from the virtual capture device will provide the best quality. As I said even if your sound card has a
"Stereo Mix"/"What You Hear"
option, the stream is converted to analog and then back to digital when you record. There is no conversion to analog when using the virtual capture device.

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.

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.

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.

Carlos Virtual Recorder program

Matt
 

Ok, it worked very well for recording what you hear ! Now what is the difference in sound card and capture what you hear and of course once I know what sound card does I will know what both does.

Also the desktop shortcut it puts on the desktop does not work. Say something about a book is not found .

Also the volume of the recording seems to be low I think  so is there a way to increase the recording volume? But will check it back out I could have had my sound turn down on Window media player which I assume is the default player it is playing in?

LOL it records. As I said it can record from either the virtual audio capture device, a sound card, or both at the same time. This is more for people who's sound cards do not have a
"Stereo Mix"/"What You Hear"
feature or don't know how to configure it. Especially laptops do not usually have this feature. Although in actuality, it is probably superior to the
"Stereo Mix"/"What You Hear"
feature since there is no conversion from digital to analog and then back to digital.

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 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?

-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

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.

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?

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.
