mci SendString Explanation
Posted on 2004-10-17
I've got code that will allow me to record audio from a microphone but I don't totally understand it eg:
Call mciSendString("record capture", RS, 128, CB)
In my example above I know that 'capture' is the name given to that action/process so you can identify it and that the number 128 relates to the input level so this would be '8-bit' sample.
My question is this, what does RS and CB stand for and are there a list of command that I can use inplace/alongside these (the same applies for the 'record' string). The reason I ask is that I'm trying to determine if I can transmit the audio in memory instead of putting it into a file using vb.net.
The MSDN is not so good at explaining this!
