View Full Version : Does audio from asf stream is worth circulating?

I recently recorded video stream (of Stranglers), whole gig weights less than 300mb so quality is very low and there are many glitches (caused probably by my connection). I asked a fan or two but in era of hdtv proshots noone seems to be interested. But I still hope that it wont rot on my harddrive, so my thoughts is maybe anyone is interested in audio? There are some technical problems (both on stage and in mix) but most of the time it's really enjoyable. I don't know if that would make its way to dime (loseless only) but maybe... So here are details:
VIDEO
Codec: WMV3
Size: 384x288
AUDIO
Codec: wma2
Channels: 2
16bit/44,1kHz
Bitrate: 48kb/s
total stream bitrate is variable around 400kb/s
It was captured directly from stream and saved as asf, so it's they way it was transmitted, no loss between server and me.
I'm attaching screencaps, maybe someone will be interested in this...

No, its not your fault the format & compression being broadcast is crap, but it is.

12. Webcast rips and Digital Satellite Broadcasts are not permitted on The Traders' Den.
At the current time, webcasts and digital satellite radio broadcasts (such as xm radio) are not held to any reasonable quality standards.

I always wonder is it just me or language barrier.

I asked if someone is interested in that recording, or if someone may be interested in future. If yes, what I have to do to extract audio from asf?

Also, sometimes there are broadcasts for slow/fast connections and some of the best gives pretty nice results (see bonnaro this year).

don't bother extracting the audio, leave it
