Re: Record Sound, Windows and Revlets

Thomas,

Did that method work for you? I've been still racking my brain on how to make QT initialize faster on Windows. Have you learned anything new? :?:

Re: libURLDownloadToFile - can I make it blocking?

OK, I think I get it, but I'm not sure it will work. I thought that I could use the callback message to call the handler of the next set of tasks, but it seems to be calling the callback message long before it downloads the file. I have the libURLDownloadToFile in a repeating loop to download an arb...

libURLDownloadToFile - can I make it blocking?

Interestingly, the Dictionary entry for libURLDownloadToFile says: The callbackMessage is sent to the object whose script contains the libURLDownloadToFile command, after the download is complete, so you can handle the callbackMessage to perform any tasks you want to delay until the file has been do...

OGG support?

Does anyone know if there are any plans to support OGG audio or video in LC anytime soon? I would love to be able to record in OGG format from LC projects!

Re: Revlet size different for some users

So I have three reports of this on Macs, and now I've just seen it on a Windows desktop computer, too. How do we make it stop? In at least one case that I've seen, the user is plugged into a desktop monitor, keyboard, mouse and is not using the trackpad at all. So there must be some other cause. Win...

Re: Player object & AVI

What I am doing is creating a video recorder revlet that records from the users webcam, and then plays it back for them so they can review it. On Windows, recording can only happen with Video For Windows (VFW), therefore in AVI. So is there no way to have that same file played back (on Windows) in t...

Player object & AVI

Is it true that the player object does not play AVI? I can't figure out why my player won't play my AVI video when on Windows. :?:

Re: Record Sound, Windows and Revlets

From reading the bug report comments it kind of sounds like what was fixed was the ability to call dontuseqt after having called QTVersion(). I might be misreading. Anyway, my recording revlet is behaving better having made this change and then compiled on Windows. But the plugin itself is still uns...

Re: Record Sound, Windows and Revlets

I retract my previous post. If I build the revlet from a Windows computer running LC 4.5.3, then the QTVersion() does have an immediate effect. I had previously been building from RR 4.0 on my Mac. I've been afraid to upgrade to LC given that the RevWEb Plugin has not yet been updated. But perhaps I...

Re: Revlet size different for some users

Sorry, just getting back to this problem again. The actual stack lives inside a password-protected course management system. I've just recently saw it on another computer, too, although it wasn't cropped as badly. I checked the screen res/aspect ratio, OS and browser versions, they all matched those...

Re: Record Sound, Windows and Revlets

Unfortunately, QTVersion did not seem to make a difference. It still seems that there is a delay on the initial call to the record sound file button, no matter what else is loading early on. In fact, hitting any button first seems to wake up the revlet. I may try to embed a call to one of the button...

Re: Record Sound, Windows and Revlets

Bernd, Brilliant, as always! Yes, I'm using QT for recording for the moment. But am thinking of switching methods for the different platforms. But then handling the files on the server gets interesting if they are in different formats. So I haven't decided yet. I'll try this out and see how it goes!

BTW, the same code exported to a Windows standalone behaves the same way.

Record Sound, Windows and Revlets

So I've made an audio recorder revlet. It works quite well on Macintosh (as you can expect), but it quite unstable on Windows. I've been told several times that the Windows RevWeb Plugin will be updated any time now, but updates have not yet come out. The behavior I see in some Windows environments ...

Re: RevServer Clarification

Hey Devin, Thanks for the reply. I suspected just as much, but it was a little unclear from what I read about it. It might be useful at some point, but it's nice to get clarification that it's not what I need right now. I've seen your work at CALICO, and I am considering moving back to a desktop app...
