Audio Compression Managers?

Hello,

I'm trying to write a text and voice chat program and when I get to the part where I wanna record my audio, I have a couple problems. For one, I'd really like to use mp3 compression for the audio, and I've found several components that allow this, or any other installed codec. The problem is, all of them come with code or components to show this "acm dialog" that makes the user have to PICK what compression format to use. What I'm looking for is a way to specify, specifically an mp3 format, so the user never has the chance to mess things up like that.

The recording and playback components I really want to use require a pointer to specify the compression method of the audio. Now if someone could give me some example pointers of different mp3 bitdepths and so on, I'd really appreciate it... Either that or a component that let's you select the format at design time.


Now I'm going to be very strict with question acceptance here. So don't just blurt out some half assed solution please, I really wanna get right down to it cause I don't have time to waste on this anymore. Appreciate the help.

Thanks guys,

Psylord

The code you have (in components) will do a call to acmFormatChoose in order to get a valid format record. However, instead of this call, the acmFormatEnum function can be used to enumerate the available formats and choose one of these, thus bypassing the dialog.

I haven't tried it yet, but I did breifly look at the call in the help so I know it exists. I need to finish up the text stuff before I can test this though.
