Streaming Microphone audio?

Recommended Posts

Hey forum!

I'm getting close to releasing a beta version of my encrypted p2p messenger I'm coding.

One feature I'de really like to implement is audio chat.

I've searched through the forum, and can't seem to find any examples of capturing audio from the microphone, without writing it to a file.

Capturing it to a file makes the audio very choppy, as bits and pieces get cut out between audio files.

I believe at one point I saw a udf that allows capturing audio directly as a stream(that I could then send as packets across the network)

Could anyone point me in the right direction, as to how to go about capturing audio as a stream of data that I could then break into packets and send?

Thanks!

Edit: There used to be an example in the BASS UDF, but I can't seem to locate it, or figure out exactly how to go about streaming audio with the included documentation.

I found an example using an older version of BASS

However for some odd reason, the extended library doesnt play well with my encryption code. (if I run my code after initializing the library, autoit will outright fail, and stop working)

But I already use multiple processes in my code, so solving that problem was as easy as moving the recording part of the code into it's own process.

Now I'm just looking for a way to reduce the encryption time, possibly with a lossy compression engine.

Here is >Bass UDF. As for capturing the audio I'm not sure... :unsure:

Your link just takes me to this same post. It suppose to take me to Bass UDF but it just reloads the page instead lol.

Do a search in the Example scripts section for BASS


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I don't need the au3 I just wanted to let the user know his link isn't pointing to the correct url.

That's because the forum software was updated and it broke a lot of links, and the user posted that 2 years ago.

Ah I didn't know about that. Thanks for letting me know. I'll keep that in mind next time.

      This is a project that I have been working on for several months off and on.
      It's a simple "What You Hear" MP3 @ 320Kbps and WAV audio recorder.
      Features:
      - LoudMax, a Gain Controller and Look-Ahead Limiter
      - Auto Shut-Off after one minute of silence
      - Side-by-Side Simulated LED Meter
      - Running Time Counter
      It started off being a large project, but I eventually stripped it down to its
      bare essentials because I came to realize that it would be very difficult to
      deal with every sound card and every way a PC is set up for audio. It would
      have been a nightmare that I was not willing to go through.
      This project contains the most up-to-date BASS.dll v.2.4.15.0 - December 17, 2019.
      All BASS Dll's are 32bit. Those and the needed UDF's are included in the zip file.
      I will try to explain how it works in the next post.

      This is an example script of how to load and use a VST using BASS in AutoIt.
      It is NOT immediately Plug and Play. You will need to download 2 VST's to run it.
      They are free for personal use.
      All information is in the header of the script.

      This file includes all the source codes and a compiled .exe version of zPlayer, which is a stand-alone, simple, intuitive and easy-to-use, yet fully functional audio player.  I made this to suit my purpose and you can tweak it to your taste as the source code is only about 1000 lines which are very much readable.  This player has the following functions:
      - Play back all formats of audio files which can be palyed back by the Windows Media Player in your computer
      - Graphical player similar to embedded Windows Media Player
      - Forward, backward, pause, repeat, shuffle funtions
      - Increase/decrease/mute sound volume
      - Change folders and create playlist for all audio files in that folder and its subfolders, and support for manually-made playlists
      - Save play-back environment when terminating and resume that environment when restarting
      - With one click, you can see DuckDuckGo search results for the file being played back
      - With a double-click, you can play back an item in the playlist
      - Search strings in the playlist
      - Option to see long file names including folder names
      - Resize the playlist window, and restore it to its default position
      - Very small footprint: very low CPU and memory usage, with only about 1MB when compiled
      - You can even hide all the windows and manipulate the player with hotkeys only
      Note: zPlayer is the name I used when I introduced the early version of this palyer in my blog back in early 2009 and, therefore, has nothing to do with the mobile media player of the same name which started marketing in 2015.

      In this post I take the opportunity to show the awesome capabilities of AutoIt and its libraries. My open source project Peace is a long running AutoIt based app located on SourceForge. It provides users with a system-wide equalizer and effects machine. It's an interface using the power of Equalizer APO, an audio processing object software. Peace has been download over 1,100,000 times by various kind of users. Amongst others it gives them possibilities like these:
      Hearing impaired - Amplify the gain of frequencies which are impaired. Home Theatre - Create Equalizer presets for watching movies and listening to music. Music lovers & audiophiles - Create presets for listening to music on their high quality speakers and headphones. Gamers - Enhance frequencies to get an edge over other gamers. Headphones - Improve the sound quality of cheap headphones and get the max out of expensive ones. Bass lovers - Boost low frequencies for extra bass. Voice - Make a microphone sound better and improve the voice, for instance for YouTube usage. Low audio - Boost low audio of an input source to a comfortable level. This list covers the main needs of the Peace user. Many people have contacted me over the years asking for new features and telling me how they use Peace for their (sometimes specific) needs.  I was able to use AutoIt and its libraries for all of their needs. So what are the main features of Peace?
      Equalize your computer audio by using up to 31 sliders. Support of equalizing 9 speakers : left/right, center, subwoofer, left/right rear, left/right side. Per slider a filter can be chosen such as peak, low/high pass, shelving. The graph windows shows your equalization so you see exactly what you're doing. Apply an effect such as crossfeed simple/Jan Meier/Chu Moy, stereo balance, bass/treble, upmix/downmix, channel routing. Save presets (called configurations) and activate by mouse click, hotkey, desktop shortcut or Peace system tray. Select a target device to equalize, microphone as input can also be equalized. Automate: you can let Peace automatically activate presets on a switch to another device and another process. Peace is available in these languages: English, Czech, Deutsch, Français, Italiano, Nederlands, Pусский, Українська So who am I? I'm a Dutch programmer who happens the stumble upon AutoIt 5 years ago and created a small Equalizer interface app of less than 400 program lines with it. Nowadays Peace has grown to more than 17,000 lines as many features were added. Although Peace is open source, the program code isn't of the best possible quality. The reason being that I didn't expect it to become so popular. It caught me by supprise. I've created a Library of functions called Pal (link to forum post) which quality is up to the AutoIt community standard as counterpart to the Peace program code.
      I want to state here that AutoIt is a mature program language as Peace obviously shows. I wish it to be used more extensively for professional or semi-professional apps. In my view AutoIt deserves a place amongst the major programming languages for Windows computers.
