PostPosted: Tue 25 Sep 2012, 20:03    Post_subject: Precord mp3,wav,ogg recorder/player version 8.0.7 released
Sub_title: Record stop button opens mixer/vu if not recording.
 

Download at first post.

# Changes:
Version 8.0.7: Record stop button opens mixer/vu if not recording.
Useful in small GUI (which has no mixer button per se) since adjusting mixer so crucial to good recordings.
Version 8.0.6: Rearranged the small GUI such that the rec/play buttons come first. That way the small GUI can be dragged part way off the right hand side of the screen and still be operatable.
Fixed helpsetup for internationalisation.

NOTE WELL:

To be sure the newest version will start, prior to installation you should definitely delete any pre-existing hidden config file /root/.precord (glad it ran okay for you anyway Flash). This version has new variables which aren't in the config file of some earlier versions. If ever precord fails to start just delete that config directory and the new config directory will auto rebuild next time you run precord after which all should be fine...

EDIT: @L18L: Please note that version 8.0.7 is released. It includes a change to STOP RECORD button functionality so also includes one small change to a gettext string also (the STOP RECORD label).

Every change is handled by momanager, no problem.

May be this code snippet can explain better howto display the entire precord setup help, and fix it Wink

Code:
sed -i 's#\"printf \"##' /usr/bin/precord

Hahaha touché

But what do you expect when I am coding whilst in full care of a screaming 8 month baby boy... I admit, I didn't look at the help to check it, bad me, just quickly looked at the pot. I'll release 8.0.8 tomorrow then... sigh. It's one in the morning here - long past my bedtime.

# Changes:
Version 8.0.8: Version 8.0.8: Fixed pause date-stamped record. Fixed help text.

Version 8.0.5: More logical drag and drop facility:
File entry takes precedence over Directory entry on filepath decision. Tidied up some of the code.

PostPosted: Fri 28 Sep 2012, 22:48    Post_subject: Precord 8.0.9 released. Needs testing.
Sub_title: Uses ffmpeg for ogg recording if oggenc is not available
 

# Changes:
Version 8.0.9: Uses ffmpeg for ogg recording if oggenc is not available. For example, oggenc (from vorbis-tools) is not provided in Slacko-5.3.3 by default so Precord could not record ogg audio format by default there until now. Wary-5.3 includes oggenc by default anyway. I tested in Wary by temporarily renaming the oggenc binary so that Precord automatically then used ffmpeg instead to encode ogg.

This version needs some testing to see if all is well and to compare ffmpeg against oggenc as the ogg encoder.

Also removed vorbis-tools from dependencies list.
-----
Some known issues with the underlying ogg encoders:

Ogg quality mode (ogg_q) should provide output file bitrates from approximately 45kbps (q=N1) up to 500kbps (q=10) with stereo mode selected. However, oggenc in Wary-5.3 does not interpret q=N1 correctly and produces bit rate 128kbps instead of 45kbps.

Ogg managed bitrate mode (ogg_mm) correctly provides up to 320kbps (when in stereo mode) using either oggenc or ffmpeg in Wary-5.3. However, the ffmpeg provided in slacko-5.3.3 could not handle 256kbps or 320kbps.

The lowest bit rate the encoders provide in ogg_mm mode should be 45kbps, but the lowest oggenc in Wary-5.3 can go is 64kbps. Precord has therefore been coded such that 64kbps is the lowest bit rate requested from oggenc in this mode and 45kbps the lowest if ffmpeg is the underlying ogg encoder instead.

PostPosted: Sun 30 Sep 2012, 19:20    Post_subject: Precord version 8.1.0 released
Sub_title: Uses ffmpeg for ogg recording if oggenc is not available. Fixed ogg Duration
 

# Changes:
Version 8.1.0: Fixed bug that Duration setting wasn't working if recording ogg under ffmpeg (was okay with oggenc). Tidied some code.
Version 8.0.9: Uses ffmpeg for ogg recording if oggenc is not available. For example, oggenc (from vorbis-tools) is not provided in Slacko-5.3.3 by default so Precord could not record ogg audio format by default there until now. This version needs some testing to see if all is well and to compare ffmpeg against oggenc as the ogg encoder. Also removed vorbis-tools from dependencies list. Some known issues with ogg recording, caused by the underlying encoders, are outlined here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=655037#655037

PostPosted: Sun 14 Oct 2012, 00:00    Post_subject: precord version 8.1.2 released  

Precord mp3, wav, ogg, acc(faac), and flac recorder and player with pause controls and auto config saving

Tested as fully working on Slacko-5.3.3. Also tested on Puppy Precise version 5.3.95.1 as working well for all codecs provided by the ffmpeg supplied there (but libfaac is not provided in Precise).

[Also tested on Slacko 5.4 beta, but Slacko beta's arecord VU display is not displaying correctly].

NOTE: aac audio could be recorded in Puppy Precise if I changed the aac encoder line to -acodec aac -strict experimental. However, that inbuilt ffmpeg encoder doesn't respond to audio quality parameters, as determined in tests, and also documented on the web. I am therefore sticking with ffmpeg enabled libfaac as a requirement for aac recording.

# Changes:

# Version 8.1.2: Running from commandline now working.
# includes AAC audio (bit rate and quality modes) and flac lossless
# Fixed scheduling record via Pscheduler.

Precord mp3, wav, ogg, acc(faac), and flac recorder and player with pause controls and auto config saving

Tested as fully working on Slacko-5.3.3 and Slacko 5.4 beta. Also tested on Puppy Precise version 5.3.95.1 as working well for all codecs provided by the ffmpeg supplied there (but libfaac is not provided in Precise). Should work to a greater or lesser extent in many Puppy versions.

PostPosted: Wed 17 Oct 2012, 11:19    Post_subject: Precord special version 8.1.3 for Puppy Precise released  

Precord mp3, wav, ogg, acc(faac), and flac recorder and player with pause controls and auto config saving

Please remember to delete your old /root/.precord config directory before installing this.

Note well that I have now also included a version of precord especially made for Puppy Precise (precord-precise-8.1.x). The ffmpeg (+libavformat extras provided by shinobar) currently provided for Precise require this modified version. But the normal one should be used in Slacko, Dpup Exprimo or any other non-Precise derived system.

# Changes:

# Version 8.1.3: VU display bugfix
# Version precise-8.1.3: as above, plus using libvo_aacenc instead of libfaac

PostPosted: Thu 18 Oct 2012, 17:48    Post_subject: gettext in Help  

I was making Russian translation and noticed that some lines in Help are not translated.
Quote:
2. For Microphone recording, ....
....... VU display before actually recording or you'll end up with a blank recording!).

I found out that that is because of commented single quote in some words like: "You\'ll", "don\'t", "01micko\'s". These backslashes should be removed for translation to work.

Thanks, I'm working on pavrecord at the moment, but I'll look into that afterwards.
