MIXER_INPUT_REC_ON TAG MP3 FILE

Hello Bernd,

I'm using PF to automatically record programs in MP3 files that are sent to our ftp server as "podcasts" directly downloadable by our listeners.
We would like to tag automatically the MP3 file created with custom names to make it clearer !

Would it be possible to create the tags directly in the record command?

Something like :

MIXER_INPUT_REC_ON
Parameter: [mixername][|filename | mp3titletag | mp3artisttag]

Or maybe there is already another existing command to do it automatically?

Thank you very much,

jsonio

You can do the following:
The mixer event "OnStopRecording" (right-click on the mixer name and select 'Edit Control Command Events...') can be used to write TAG data to the last recording file. Use the macro ${mixerrecfilenamelast} to reference the last recording file and the control command EXEC_TAG_FILE.

Example:

Code: Select all

EXEC_TAG_FILE ${mixerrecfilenamelast}|title=This is my Title|artist=My Artist Name
To make this even more dynamic you can also set the title and artist variables when issuing your MIXER_INPUT_ON event, like this:

Code: Select all

EXEC_VAR_SET MyTitle=This is my Title
EXEC_VAR_SET MyArtist=My Artist Name
MIXER_INPUT_REC_ON INP2
And then use them within the InputMixer's OnStopRecording event.

Code: Select all

ASYNC
EXEC_TAG_FILE ${mixerrecfilenamelast}|title=${VAR:MyTitle}|artist=${VAR:MyArtist}
EXEC_UPLOAD_FILE ${mixerrecfilenamelast}|ftp://yourserver.com/targetname|username|password
