Can we do this with autoIt ?

14 posts in this topic

Hi,

Being new to AutoIt and to this forum I wonder if we can make the following things with AutoIt.

1). Record a sound using mic and save it.

2). Record a sound while it is played by another application and save it.

Thank you

Tukata

Keep in mind that AutoIT is a scripting language, not a full operating system environment. AutoIT scripts the things you can do in Windows. If you can do it in Windows, natively or with another application, then you can script the doing of it. But the script will still call the native Windows function or application. The application Windows 2000 provides for recording is sndrec32.exe. AutoIT won't replace sndrec32.exe, but it can script the use of it.

You can certainly write an AutoIT script to automate using the sndrec32.exe tool.

Thanks a lot guys.

I found "Media.au3" and I hope to understand how to do it.

About using "sndrec32.exe", how do I automate it (Record, Pause, Stop, Play) and can I hide its window and how I record more than one minute ?

Thak you

Thanks, I found it. There is one problem with "Media_Example_RecordSound.au3" it does not save the file if the path selected (in the Save Dialog) has spaces. What should I change in the script ?

Thank you

I tried this but didn't work:

$File=FileSaveDialog("","","Wave files (*.wav)")&".wav"
$File = FileGetShortName($File)

Where is my mistake ?

(As a temporary solution I save the file to "Temp" and copy to $File.)

Thank you

herewasplato,

Sorry I can't make it work.

I replaced in "Media_Example_RecordSound.au3" this line:

$File=FileSaveDialog("","","Wave files (*.wav)")&".wav"

with this:

$File = FileGetShortName(FileSaveDialog("","","Wave files (*.wav)"))

Am I doing wrong again ?

Thank you

Tuk

Why don't you show everything you have, that way some one might be able to piece it together for you.

Good idea.

I took the original "Media_Example_RecordSound.au3" and made small changes:

1). First save to TEMP (no spaces in path) and then copy to the path with spaces selected by "SaveDialog".

2). I add also a SLEEP because otherwise it does not record all.

3). I add delete file from TEMP.

This code works perfect:

#include <Media.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}","StopRecording")
$Stop=1
Func StopRecording()
    $Stop=0
EndFunc
$Media=_MediaCreate(6)
_MediaRecord($Media)
While $Stop
WEnd
_MediaStop($Media)
$File=FileSaveDialog("","","Wave files (*.wav)")&".wav"
If @error Then
    _MediaClose($Media)
    Exit
EndIf

_MediaSave($Media,"C:\Temp\Temp.wav")
_MediaClose($Media)

Sleep(1500)
FileCopy("C:\Temp\Temp.wav", $File)
Sleep(500)
FileDelete ("C:\Temp\Temp.wav")

What I want to do is overcome the problem of spaces in path selected by "SaveDialog" without the need to save to TEMP and copy.

Another thing I still want to do is using this script (or another) to copy a sound played by another application (not a sound file but a sound embedded in exe like slideshow).

BTW, what does this mean in "Media.au3" ?

; 0 = CD Audio

; 1 = Digital video

; 2 = Overlay

; 3 = sequencer

; 4 = Vcr

; 5 = Video disc

; 6 = Wave Audio

Thank you all for your help

Sorry about that rather short post. I was attempting to point out that you might not want the &".wav" part of that line of code. Now that I see more of your code, I see why you added it. I don't know of a solution for you right now... I'll leave it to others in the forum.

...hope that I did not waste too much of your time...

herewasplato,

No problem. It was my mistake not to post the whole script from the start.

I hope someone will have answers.

Thank you
