View Full Version : dMCScripting - Rightclick, Volume, ID3: Title, Author, Copyright and Licensing

08-02-2006, 07:05 PM
I have been asked to enfore a certain level of quality for MP3 files for our web site. So I thought I would write the following script in vb6 (see below). In particular, the resulting mp3 files need to match these settings:

Codec: MP3 (LAME)
Channel: Mono
Bit Rate: 64 kbps
Encoded Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
Resolution: 16 bit
Audio files should maintain a consistent level of -6dB with peaks not exceeding -1dB

My questions are these:

Is it possible to right click on a file within windows, select an option to "encode audio for web" then pass the drive, path and filename to the dMCScripting component for use with its AddFromFile method?
In addition to normalizing, is it possible to raise the peak volume to -1 dB?
is it possible, via dMCScripting, to display a dialog box for including the title and author in the id3 tag?
is it possible, via dMCScripting - and without any user input, to automatically include a standard copyright and creative commons licensing information in the id3 tag as well?

Thanks for any suggestions you might have.
