Speech and Movie Playback

Post by marblemark » Fri Sep 13, 2013 8:30 pm

We have a customer with an old Mac/Win program he wants modernized, to include new versions for iOS and Android. LiveCode seems like a reasonable choice. The two immediate issues that concern me are sound recording and movie playback.

Does LiveCode support sound recording on Mac, Win, iOS and Android? It looks like I need to find or write extensions to handle all platforms.

Does LiveCode allow for movie playback to be sped up or slowed down? It looks like the QuickTime Player's playRate is supposed to do that.

Where do I look to find a LiveCode developer to write an app to do this and a lot more?

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Recording audio is easy on Windows and Mac OS X. You'll need a hack for Linux and an external for iOS. Because there is no official LiveCode SDK for Android, it will take a lot of time to get this done on Android.

Yes, the playRate can slow down a movie, but it works on desktop platforms only. Right now I can't find a way to do this on iOS, but it might be possible with an external.

If you're looking for a developer, you can send a message through my website (see signature).

Kind regards,

Mark

There is an android sdk in the works. It's complete enough to work with already but it's not for the feint of heart ;-)
I don't think an audio recording external would take all that long to implement.

mergAVPlayer can do this on iOS. You would need an android solution too.

There's a consultants list on LiveCode.com -> http://livecode.com/about/consultants/
