I mentioned the MP3 player or phone because I wanted you to try it with a different source than your laptop. This was to be a troubleshooting step. However, since you reported it works fine with headphones, and you have the same issue with a different laptop, we can be pretty confident that it's not the laptop. If the laptop emits correct sound to ...

Wifi has more bandwidth (here is a comparison with Wifi direct). Nevertheless, the bluetooth bandwidth should be sufficient for high quality audio transmission. Your choppy experience might be the result of high spectrum usage in your building. Unlike wifi with its fixed channels, bluetooth uses frequency hopping across different channels (Wiki-Link). ...

Bluetooth is a low energy standard designed for short distances suitable to devices that don't require much bandwidth. It is considered a personal area network. Wifi is developed as a larger scale network allowing greater distances and speeds. You can see a comparison of their theoretical maximum speeds on Wikipedia. Note that the two protocols use the ...

FFmpeg does not do any in-place editing or processing of files!! By specifying the output file the same as the input file, ffmpeg wipes the file clean and only the packets initially read into memory before the output token is acted upon gets encoded and written. You should always specify a output file different than the input. That said, this is how you ...

A way to achieve this is to use the cdparanoia command line tool. In Ubuntu Linux you can install it through sudo apt install cdparanoia then run cdparanoia -Q Where "-Q" stands for "query". If there's no audio disc in the drive, you'll get cdparanoia III release 10.2 (September 11, 2008) 004: Unable to read table of contents header Unable to open ...

Windows does not natively support this. Control Panel software that comes with hardware usually can't distinguish programs either, only ports. This means that in order to get this to work, you will have to work with software such as Virtual Audio Cable to create virtual ports and redirect one program such as skype to use this audio device, while windows ...

You can connect the headphone out port to your PA's line in, there's no risk, just a possible sound distortion if the volume on your notebook is too high, or lose definition if the volume is too low. If you keep the volume to 75%, and regulate the output volume from your PA, you'll do just fine.

Ok, the answer is that, yes, the file can be created with vlc on Linux as a perfectly good m4a file that should be playable on iTunes on an iPad or iPhone. However, the file can only be transferred to iTunes on iOS from an iTunes Mac or Windows host, according to Apple Support. I do not own such a system. Thanks to LN2, I installed vlc for iOS on my iPad. I ...

If you have a complex filter with more than one input and output, you need to explicitly specify which input and output streams are used by which filter. Also, to separate filterchains, you will have to use the semicolon (;) instead of a simple comma (,). Finally, you have to map the output of those filterchains to the output file using the -map option. ...

If OpenOffice cannot view the file properly then the best option would probably be to use the Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer to view the file. The PowerPoint Viewer is likely to be the most compatible option to view files created in PowerPoint and should work on Windows XP and above. If the audio still does not play then you may need to contact the file ...

You can change the default system audio output like this: In the menu bar, option-click the volume icon, and choose headphones. This should affect most applications, but it's possible some apps or web plugins will have their own setting.

The missing drivers are for Bluetooth, not for the Bose Soundlink speakers specifically. Installing the latest Bluetooth software for my machine (in my case, the Dell Wireless 380 Bluetooth Application) resolved the problem.

Well, the very short answer to the originally asked question is: Yes, you can use vlc on Linux to convert an audio file encoded with AAC in an MP4 container, that should be able to be played on iOS devices. (I have no iOS device handy to actually test that though.) Here is a step by step tutorial on how to use vlc for audio file conversions. Note however ...

Method 1: open cmd and type: FOR %A IN ("C:\SourcePath\*.m4a") DO ffmpeg -i "%~A" -vn -c:a copy "C:\OutputPath\%~NA.aac" Method 2: open cmd and type: FOR %A IN ("C:\SourcePath\*.m4a") DO ffmpeg -i "%~A" -vn -acodec copy "C:\OutputPath\%~NA.aac" Both of them work.

Microphones built into devices like notebooks and screens are NOT suitable for speech recognition use.

Another reason might be, that you put your laptop to hibernate when your earphones connected, but awake it after you unplugged your earphones.

I've been using SBooth's Rip to rip the CD's to CUE+FLAC and SBooth's Max to convert the FLAC into individual MP3 files.

If you are looking for something simpler (and cheaper) than Audio Hijack, I just came across an app called SoundBunny. I have not tried it, but it looks like a good alternative for those who just want to control apps' volumes and don't need the recording capabilities of Audio Hijack.

Having this exact same issue, sounds suddenly (often when in-game) quit working properly as in that it 'resets' to some 'default' state, whereupon the sound volume goes up about 25/30% (loud) and my headphones cable volume control quits responding...

You can use ffmpeg on the terminal.

Don't believe FFmpeg supports MP3 Surround, so for AAC and AC3, use ffmpeg -i input.mkv -map 0 -c copy -c:a aac output.mkv ffmpeg -i input.mkv -map 0 -c copy -c:a ac3 output.mkv To downmix to stereo, insert -ac 2 i.e. for stereo MP3 ffmpeg -i input.mkv -map 0 -c copy -c:a libmp3lame -ac 2 output.mkv you can insert -b:a N to specify audio bitrate where ...

As far as I know, you can only do this if you have an adapter connected through any port except the Audio jack port. For instance, I use SOUND BLASTER X-FI GO!

While Windows sounds, are still turned on laptop speakers, and ...

I found the answer from the creator of mp3DirectCut, here. He gives three options. Relevant part of his post follows: I use the "DSM converter" of an old version of the "Media Player Classic" (1.3.1249.0). Also "FFmpeg" can demux (command line: ffmpeg.exe -i inputfile.mp4 -acodec copy outputfile.aac). There is also MP4Creator which is much smaller: ...

This is because you are hearing the difference between the left and right audio tracks. Ground is the piece the the 3.5 mm jack that gets plugged in last, so what you are instead hearing is the difference in voltage between one channel and another. Try making a song truly mono, and listening for the effect.

One possible way to adjust the audio sync timing for playing videos locally on the windows system. Using media player classic. VLC also has options to change the AV sync timing.

It also has a companion iOS app that can trigger the recorded mouse drags and ...

A little late, but if anyone had the same question, you have to use the trim "effect" to record a set length of audio. So to record 10 seconds of audio just append trim 0 10 at the end of your command, e.g., $ sox -b 32 -e unsigned-integer -r 96k -c 2 -d --clobber --buffer $((96000*2*10)) /tmp/soxrecording.wav trim 0 10 From the SoX man: trim ...

this happened to me exactly the same way, BUT.... there is a simple solution: as it is linked to the windows system sounds (as soon as one of those sounds goes on, skype sound continue distorted and video also ...), simply configure it as "no sounds" ... problem solved. your skype conversations will go on smoothly, no distorsions anymore ;-)

I've had similar issues with virtual audio cable. If you really want to make Skype work, try using your Stereo mix. Generally, most computers have it installed already and it counts as a microphone.

Found that the beeping on my system was my phone connection to charge my phone via the usb port on my laptop.... it kept trying to find out what device was connected.

Run alsamixer in terminal. Press F6 to select sound card.(In most conditions, you dont need to do this, because the default sound card is which you need it to work) Use arrow keys to select "Master" "Headphone" or other related items. While selecting, use M key to unmute those channels. After that, you might hear voice from you favorite headphone.
