Recording audio being played through Windows Media Player
« on: August 09, 2014, 03:37:25 PM »

Hi,

does you Audio Sound Recorder for .NET component allow recording audio being played by other applications like Windows Media Player or iTunes?

Thanks in advance

Hi Mark,

if working under Windows Vista or higher versions (7, 8, Server 2008, etc,) this can be done through the usage of "Loopback" devices; there is an article on CodeProject which explains how to proceed:
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/770246/How-to-record-any-PC-sound-through-WASAPI-and-Audi

If working under Windows XP, recording anything being played through speakers could be done at driver level only and this is unfortunately not supported by our component directly but, if the driver of your sound card should come with support for the "What u hear" or "Stereo Mix" or "Record Master" input channel, our component could start a recording session through the StartFromDirectSoundDevice method by setting this specific input channel on the nInputChannel parameter.

Hope this helps

Regards
