Recording bug for m3u8 stream- recorded file is only 3k and does not play

Try recording stream http://rogers-hls.leanstream.co/rogers/ ... ylist.m3u8

(station CFGP 97.7 FM Grand Praire, AB)

No matter how long the attempted recording, the output file size is 3k.

Similar results with other Rogers stations in Canada such as CHDI 102.9 FM Edmonton, AB.

RadioSure version 2.2.1046.0 , audio routine powered by un4seen.com (version 2.4.11.0)

You know, there is a bug since ver1046, !!
The bitrate in recording setting should not be on "automatic"......
This is reported by me, after a few days of the 1046 release.
Logic, since on HLS streams, the bitrate cannot be detected by RS
Try bitrate 128 kb , and the recordings are ok

Thank you, Fonzy!

I do not know how to change the bit rate from "automatic" to 128 kb for this stream. I need a command line switch as I have a task scheduled in the Windows "Task Scheduler" to record this stream.

Please advise.
Thank you!

Just set in options the bitrare for recording to 128, the setting stays, unless you give other value in command string (but as you mention, for that setting is no commanline command)
On install, the rate is default on automatic, that is why even mp3 or pls streams go wrong. The auto - option just does not function anymore since ver 1046.

Confirmed that it works! The setting is under the Options-Recording menu with a drop down list box for the Bitrate. The default had been Auto as you had described.

There is really no need to record audio for humans at 128 kb or above. Most people will be surprised at how predictable their age is based on a hearing test of high frequencies. There are many free on the internet, here is one https://playback.fm/hearing-test
