    My application uses the pulsesrc plugin directly through a gstreamer pipeline, in C, so in theory it allows for more flexability in the future (variable controls for stream and bitrate, various plugins for mp3 etc), and even a voice activation mode.

    Not trying to rain on anyone's parade. I'll probably start a thead in the webos-internals forum when it's up.
    Greetings Prenosicator!

    Been waiting for you somehow, but the wait was worth it! Nice shot ;-)

    By default, it installs (and currently exclusively uses) the LAME mp3 audio encoder, which of course saves in .mp3 format. There are currently no /caps/ for recording time, but there are limitations based on the current state of your device (ie: cpu usage by other apps, and free memory). In the current state, there is no way to enumerate these variables, but in the next (public) alpha release, the app will give you feedback if there are issues with the current recording pipeline. What I /can/ tell you, is it runs much smoother with an 800mhz kernel. This does not mean I suggest you go out an run an 800mhz kernel, but its a considerable difference in my opinion. There will also be various preferences and options that can be set for quality, including Stream rate (in khz), bit depth (8 or 16), bitrate (64, 96, or 128kbps), and overall lame encoder quality. In other words, simple voice recording will run fine even on a stock phone, but if you want to record music or other application output, you may want to consider better quality.

    Not sure, but you shouldn't have to do anything to get this to work as it interacts directly with the system libraries. In other words, if you can currently play any media on your device with success, this application will work.
    Bringing you the first video recorder (Precorder), the first SDL application/game (DOOM), the first "make my magicjack/corporate voicemail play on my webos phone thingy" (gsm codec package), and now, webos's first opensource media recorder (voice and stream!) -> zcorder

    I need this badly, especially if it encodes directly to MP3. Consider this strong encouragement! {Jonathan}

    how do you uninstall the previous script that was posted to this thread?
  5. #25  
    Update: downloaded Precorder via Preware testing feed and it works! Used Internalz to find/play recordings (in /media/internal/recordings/ directory), and Jason R's file naming patch makes for logical and unique names.

    Will be giving a longer term test later today, but psyched that I may be finally able to record my teaching directly w/o any additional accessories, right to MP3. One suggestion, tho: to avoid confusion with earlier Precorder video app, and to maximize chance of being included someday in the App Catalog, a name change (w/o the word Pre) would be useful.

    Thank you! {Jonathan}

    Thanks Johnatan I wouldn't have thought about using internalz to listen to my recordings it does work with microphone and media capture Thanks.

    If someone could do a gui for this and put it in preware, it would be awesome!

    The script in this thread hasn't been updated but Prenosicator has an app in Preware in the testing feed it is called Precorder.

    UPDATE: Never mind . . . Got it installed.

    Dis this, anf feed *seems* to load fine, but I don't see the feed in Preware menus, and can't find the app with a "List of Everything" search. Do I need "arm7" in the feed URL, or is the "all" feed OK?

    You probably mean my script? To remove my script, just delete it from the directory where you put it:

    Code:
    rm rec.sh
    or
    Code:
    rm /var/home/root/rec.sh
    To uninstall sox, type in:
    Code:
    ipkg-opt remove sox

    okay have the same problem, test feed doesnīt appear in the feed section any hints?

    installed both feeds: arm7 and all, none of them show up! if there is a spelling issue, how do i remove the feed again? couldnīt see any options...

    wow, wow anyways thanks so much for this app, was about to buy a recorder, just hope to get this running soon.

    help is appreciated, thanks a lot for all your good work

    Just downloaded and tried it out. Very nice start, Prenosticator! Are you intending to develop a commercial version or will this be open sourced? If open sourced, I'd love to get involved. If commercial, I look forward to buying it when it becomes available. This has been one of my key missing features for too long!

    tc600 thanks! Any plans to put a gui to your script both of them work well. I asked because when I was troubleshooting precorder I thought there was a conflict but realized there wasn't

    Everyone having trouble: Once you add the testing feeds, make sure you update your feeds in preware. Go to list of everything and search for "precorder". You should be able to find it there and install it.
