Recording what you hear/Virtual Recorder utility finished #software #freeware


Carlos
 

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.

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 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?

Well does this thing install anything ? when I unzipped it and ran it
nothing happen. I did finally seen a cancel box but did not click on it and
could not get JFW to read anything else! So how do you work this thing ? It
might be beyond my capabilities !

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 Matt,

I also tried running it and got the 'stop working' post XP/Windows 7/8/10 message with no explanation. I then tried running it from the DOS/command line and I couldn't get it to work. I tried typing in the 8/3 file name within the folder; tried the full path syntax and kept getting the 'this is an unrecognizable program/command' error message.

No, it is not an installer. It is a single executable. I'm guessing that you ran it on 10? I just figured out that stupid Windows 10 doesn't seem to like the fact that it is packed by Enigma Virtual Box. However, it does work on 10 when unpacked so I will have to upload another version later.

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.

How annoying. It should work on 7. I have to check, but there may be some VB6 dependencies which have to be installed first. Of course when I create an installer, this will all be taken care of automatically.

No, it is not an installer. It is a single executable. I'm guessing that
you ran it on 10? I just figured out that stupid Windows 10 doesn't seem to
like the fact that it is packed by Enigma Virtual Box. However, it does
work on 10 when unpacked so I will have to upload another version later.

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,

Well, just cannot get this thing to run! Or if it does Jaws is not reading
nothing in it. But it really don't look like nothing is happening at all.
Some say they get an error message I don't get nothing absolutely nothing at

Ron Canazzi
 

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.

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.

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 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?

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.

-t to set the duration of the recording in the format hours, minutes, and seconds. for example,

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.

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.

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.

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

is selected in the
"Recording source"

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 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?

Other formats could be easily added. You can record either from

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.
