AVxCAT (v2 into test)
« on: March 03, 2022, 11:42:22 pm »
Hi,

AVxCAT v2 has progressed
Many planned updates and new functions are now available (only 3 to 4 new options/changes aren't fully enabled yet)
I need more feedbacks about (not finalized) current beta. (ini file is maintained compatible with older release despite new entries are added)

To not overwrite current AVxCAT, this one is named avxcat_beta (dll is updated and backward compatible) 
The AVxCAT guide isn't updated yet and will be done next but I've added a long list about major functions and minor changes as well all corrected bugs including some rare crashes some had in specific situation...

To go to this beta level, have AVxCAT installed.
Check having new requirements installed
Use FFMPEG > v4 (I used V4.2.2 for my tests) to enabled all new functions
- Recording ice cast or other... (e.g. icecast-yp.internet-radio (dot) com ; directory.shoutcast (dot) com ...)
   Record time can be adjusted (Stream limit [time] options under parameters)
- You can record webcam (webcam.exe required - You can start webcan with option from under AVxCAT and up to 2 webcams devices selectable)
   you have the option to enable ffplay at link add into AVxCAT which provides you a small video window about current webcam recording
   an option to send udp webcam output available too...
   https://www.os2world.com/cms/index.php/past-news/80-news/software/23231-uvc-webcam-server-1-0
- You can start webcam and just see the video from it
   You ca start/stop playing some type of "files"
- CD grabbing with cddb improved with autoget front cover id enabled (webc under parameters)
   CD grab output organisation can be selected through the [ + ] available button under parameters
   CD HQ extract (including n recoveries in case of read errors) option added
   ...
- Audio muxing or append (in muxing mode, first entry can be volume lowered)
...

To test it and provide feedbacks:

Regards

Hi,
I updated the build, having found a tipo under icecast process
Those having downloaded it can use the get updated function under help.

A few screenshots of new functions using "dark" thema
(some datas masked)

001 - new entries into popup menu
002 - play webcam after adding its link into the container
003 - Add icecast m3u link or ... into container
004 - rec-cast (rec-time record is set under parameter menu options)
005 - show description of a grabbed CD (example used as a test for illustration)
006 - get Album art (front cover) for discid.cddb (*.cddb must be added into file filter to allow adding this type file - file contain not checked)

Hello Remy,
I tried to download it but got a strange error. The downloaded file was only 3 kB long.

Don't know if  I made a mistake and tried to download something else but still.

Hi,
Strange, the file  AVXCAT_new.zip  is near 344KB
what's your small downloaded file name ?

( https works too - https://remydodin.levillage.org/doc/realisations/downloads/AVXCAT_new.zip )
 
How did you download it (from AVxCAT menu or using previous direct link) ?
- If from the menu, which Curl build do you have ?
- It uses two step, 1/ get information of available build on my site & 2/ if newer, download it ...
  do you have a home path (set home=) ?     

Regards
Rémy

To stream webcam audio+video network using udp...
Once you added the webcam, add the udp: information on the target path and then start.... (use parm ?pkt_size=1316 to have it working with VLC)

I downloaded file without a problem.

I execute the .exe  and the first pic shows what happens.  This has happen with earlier versions.  I just stopped it and ran the .exe again and it would work.  Not this time..

I get the second message and then nothing happens.

I get the second message and then nothing happens.

This code is executed during initial installation without ini file and after opening parameters + clic on webc checkbox
The messages are from webc dialog (but it could be displaied if an error occured before - making me modify a/)

I checked under my system but didn't get the error after removing my ini file and starting a fresh install.
I checked the code and changed 2 lines
a/ one which could set an invalid option if a specified path doesn't exist (cdda2wav)
B/ I forgot to refresh a var under webc dialog centering the dialog (corrected to refresh this var as it should be)
  If this var got dropped, a crash could occur (had this under an other dialog in an older version)   

Can you please get the update and give it a try ? thanks
(same file name)

Regards
Rémy

Hi Remy

I must apologize.  I found what I did wrong.  I failed to copy the files over the previous install which had used Warpin.  Once I did that, everything appears to work great.   There were more files I required that were not included with the previous install. Thanks for all you hard work..

David

Update available:

Added m3u list sorted by write date/time option
default = track names, if prefixed by track number, it is right but if not préfixed by track numbers, default sort may not provide expected result. With sort m3u by wtime, older on top, grab order is respected (sort limited by dir date/time precision)

Option available under: "CD output path" parameters Menu -> [  +  ]
