A few weeks ago Larry and I were talking about adding voice memos to photos in F-Spot. So last night, having trouble getting to sleep, I started hacking on a simple audio source recorder for GStreamer. I’ve now got a simple C “class” for recording to ogg, a Mono/C# binding class, and a Mono/C# test application. For those interested in trying it, here’s a tarball.
Though it’s really simple, I’m pretty excited about it because I can never seem to get the standalone Sound Recorder in GNOME to work properly. But maybe that’s just because I avoid it now out of past bad experiences. It probably works fine, and I’m just nuts.
I plan on adding basic playback and seeking to it, stealing a stripped down version of that code from Banshee (plug!), and then some how it will get integrated into F-Spot, so you can record all sorts of sentimental audio notes on your photos. How cute.
Oh well… back to Banshee.
