AudioRecorder on BB10 Simulator



I tried the sample "dictaphone"


It always gives me following error logs:


INFO        START 1 AudioRecorder::record
INFO        START 1 AudioRecorder:: prepare
INFO        START 1 AudioRecorderPrivate::updateInputParams
INFO        AudioRecorderPrivate::updateInputParams: audioManagerHandle=0
INFO        START 1 AudioRecorderPrivate::lastError
WARNING     AudioRecorder:: prepare: Error attaching input source. url=audio:default, error=SourceUnavailable
WARNING     AudioRecorder::record: Unable to prepare the recorder



Is it possible to use microphone on simulator?

If not, can somebody tell me the detailed PCM (.wav) format recorded by real device?

- sampling rate

- channels

- bps


Many thanks.

Re: AudioRecorder on BB10 Simulator



Microphone should work with Simulator. Can you please try using the latest 10.1 simulator? With respect  to PCM data format please refer to below link




Thank you,
