Real Audio Recording

Posted on 2001-07-27
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I'm currently using the Real Audio Active-X component to listen to web Radio, however I would like to be able to record what is being played as well. Does anyone know how I can save this data to file? (the format is not too important as long as I can re-play it off-line).

I haven't found much info on the web regarding this one, so if there is a better approach to playing real audio or indeed recording then I would be appreciate a nudge in the right direction.

I'd like to know a good way to do this myself... I currently record a few real audio shows using a home-made patch cord from my sound cards audio out jack to it's audio in jack... then I record using the free real audio recorder from real's web site... it works OK but it's a goofy way to have to record something...a purely software approach would be a lot less Rube-Goldberg :-)

It depends on how sophisticated you want to be. There is a program called "Total Recorder" that can capture any sound going through your sound card and can be launched programmatically. It is cheap in the Standard Edition and works well.

I am looking for a way to get the same functionality in my Delphi program but that is for a different application

Wow, I originally posted this a year and a half ago!

Anyway, my Delphi skills are a bit better now and I solved the problem some time ago, I have basically written my own version of Total Recorder for personal use, it saves audio into .wav files, then i convert it into an mp3 to save on the disk storage space.

I'll post some code here when I get home from work that shows you how to add audio recording into your Delphi application.

Or alternatively you could e-mail me and I'll send you a delphi project that records audio to disk.
