Remarks

The Constant Bitrate (CBR), expressed in bits per second (bps), used for WMA (Windows Media Audio) format during recording or CD ripping sessions.

 

Note that, depending upon the chosen input format (fixed to 44100 Hz, 16 bits, Stereo for CD ripping sessions), not all of the bitrate values are supported.

 

The full list of Constant Bitrates, supported by a certain input format, can be obtained using the EncodeFormats.WMA.GetEncodingBitratesCount and EncodeFormats.WMA.GetEncodingBitrate methods.

 

The full list of Constant Bitrates, supported by a certain frequency and number of channels, can be obtained using the EncodeFormats.WMA.GetEncodingCBRCount and EncodeFormats.WMA.GetEncodingCBR methods.

This property is used only in the following situations:

 

During a recording session if the EncodeFormats.ForRecording property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_WMA and the EncodeFormats.WMA.EncodeMode property is set to WMA_ENCODE_CBR_STD_16, WMA_ENCODE_CBR_PRO_16 or WMA_ENCODE_CBR_PRO_24 (for further details see the How to perform a recording session section).

During a CD ripping session if the EncodeFormats.ForCdRipping property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_WMA and the EncodeFormats.WMA.EncodeMode property is set to WMA_ENCODE_CBR_STD_16, WMA_ENCODE_CBR_PRO_16 or WMA_ENCODE_CBR_PRO_24 (for further details see the How to perform a CD ripping session section).

During an exporting session if the EncodeFormats.ForExporting property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_WMA and the EncodeFormats.WMA.EncodeMode property is set to WMA_ENCODE_CBR_STD_16, WMA_ENCODE_CBR_PRO_16 or WMA_ENCODE_CBR_PRO_24 (for further details see the How to export a recorded sound section).

 

For further details about encoding in WMA format refer to the WMA object section.

For further information about available encoding formats see the EncodeFormats object.
