CSipSimple, in its "Call Options" has an "Auto record calls" option.

Hope this may help.

Unfortunately, Ekiga does not allow call recording.
You will have to use software like Asterisk or Freeswitch for that.

Recording soundcard input/output might be the easiest way. I never
tried, but you can find some interesting links on the Web:

Re: [Ekiga-list] call recording / ekiga too tightly on ALSA?

2006-09-16 Thread Mario Rossi
Hi

I was looking into alsa to find a place where to get the list of pcm devices

1) aplay -l gives you the list of hardware devices

2) aplay -L gives you the list of pcm devices
It achieves this by snd_config_search(..., pcm, ...) (btw, as I
read in the bug report
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355658)

The problem using snd_config_search() is that the list it returns you
is very long and many pcm.devices need parameters.

Wouldn't it be easier to do something like suggested in

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=340270

?

It crashes Ekiga.
Or better, the sound is choppy.

 I ask it, because it is not too easy to change the alsa library (like

Re: [Ekiga-list] call recording / ekiga too tightly on ALSA?

2006-09-14 Thread Mario Rossi
I've found a way to use the pcm.tee device in alsa to record the local
sound produced by Ekiga.

Here is my .asoundrc

pcm.hardware {
 type hw
 card 0
 device 0
}

pcm.!default {
 type plug
 slave {
   pcm tee:hardware,/home/mario/a.raw
 }
}

then in Ekiga one should choose the default audio device.
The file generated will be in raw format, S16_LE, 2 channels with a
rate depending on the application you are using (Ekiga does 8000)

To note that if I write pcm tee:default it does not work. I
think it could be related to the dmix bug, since the default would be
dmix. In this case, Ekiga, mplayer and xmms do not work properly,
while aplay does. I'll try again when I will have updated my system to
alsa 1.0.12.

One question: how can I specify in Ekiga an audio device which is not
default or the name of the card?
I would like to call this device

pcm.file_raw {
...
}

but then I cannot tell Ekiga to use it, while I can just write

aplay -D file_raw .

Thanks

There is another way (and to me, much simpler way) to record Ekiga calls,
which is to use the OPAL library (upon which Ekiga is based).

See the H323Connection::OnStartLogicalChannel function in OPAL to see
how to insert a filter that can capture the raw audio stream

 Hello,
 
 I read the call recording thread three days ago with great interest,
 as I'm crawling the net how to do this for some hours now. I see various
 possibilities, however no one has worked for me. Attention, this is a
 longer posting ;-)
 
 (1) vsound (using Ekiga with OSS)
 
 Doesn't work, Ekiga can't get the sound (Could not open audio channel
 for audio reception). Probably vsound is only suitable for capturing
 audio *output* anyway - we want both output and the input from the
 microphone.
 
 (2) Direct recording from the ALSA system
 
 Apparently, this has worked for someone:
 http://lugwash.org/linux-users/200603/0030.html
 and he has created a podcast with ekiga.
 However, I wasn't able to reproduce this, probably because I lack deep
 understanding of ecasound and the ALSA system.
 
 (3) Sniffing the VoIP packets
 
 Voipong was mentioned in the thread three days ago; I didn't try this,
 because I hoped to find something less intrusive and more connected to
 the audio system. And, well, there wasn't a convenient Debian package
 ready ;-)
 
 (4) JACK
 
 I was very impressed by seeing the JACK audio connection system. In
 fact, apparently people can record Skype using that:
 http://internet.newsforge.com/comments.pl?sid=44854cid=108262
 
 Connecting a recording software to an audio output is very easy and even
 graphical. However, I wasn't able to make Ekiga speak to JACK. I tried
 two ways:
 
 (3a) Attaching a pcm.jackdump device to the ALSA c
 as described e.g. here:  
 http://www.nabble.com/Alsa-device-to-Jack-ports--t850073.html
 This works well on the command-line, I can say
 aplay -D jackdump myfile.wav
 and it's played and shown as a JACK connection inside qjackctl.
 But ekiga doesn't show that new ALSA device, it only lists hardware
 devices and doesn't let me enter my own (maybe for a good reason,
 however some people say that software generally shouldn't do that (in
 the nabble.com thread above)).

A good library (like ALSA) should report the new device in the list of
available devices.

I suggest you, if you are using JACK, to redefine the DEFAULT device
usable in Ekiga. That works well.

 
 (3b) Using artsd connected to JACK and artswrapper starting ekiga and
 speaking to artsd
 

Never do that, artsd will introduce a huge latency.

 Now we have yet another intermediate level, but still, ekiga remains
 silent: No test sounds are played. I think artswrapper is a wrapper for
 OSS only, nonetheless I tried Ekiga with both OSS and ALSA - without
 success.
 
 So, finally, might it be that Ekiga uses ALSA a little bit too tightly?
 I can, for example, play music from Amarok and XMMS at the same time,
 I'm using a recent ALSA (which includes dmix) and have both programs set
 to use ALSA.
 
 But if I'm playing music from XMMS and start Ekiga/ALSA, I get Could
 not open audio channel for audio reception when a call arrives. (By the
 way, Ekiga works perfectly if it's the only ALSA client, not that you
 start to think that my installation is messed up ;-)
 
 This leads me to the conclusion that Ekiga uses ALSA in quite a
 blocking way. Or are there people having Ekiga accepting connections
 while they are e.g. listening to music? If that were possible, I think I
 could manage recording the conversation via JACK (and write a howto).
 
 Thank you for reading - I couldn't make it shorter, it's that
 complicated! - 
 have a nice week,
 Viktor.
