SwitchOutputFile method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

During a recording session, whose output is being sent to an output file, switches to a different output file without stopping the recording session itself: in this way no sound data will be lost.

 

This method will return an error for memory-based recording sessions or for recording sessions whose recording mode, set through the SetRecordingMode method, is different from REC_MODE_NEW.

 

This method can only work when the recording session is started through one of the following methods: StartFromDirectSoundDevice, StartFromAsioDevice, StartFromWasapiCaptureDevice, StartFromWasapiLoopbackDevice and StartFromDjStudioMixer.

 

Each time an output file is switched, the RecordingOutputFileSwitch event is fired.

 

For further details about output files switching see the How to perform a recording session tutorial.
