Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Hi,

The last week, on my spare time, i coded a small frontend in pygtk for cdrecord, mkisofs and growisofs. It's based on PyBurn by Judd Vinet. Just a small utility.

scree12312313nshot102.png

I uploaded the package to AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=16501

Homepage, http://code.google.com/p/recorder/

Last update: 1.4
    + Support for mp3 and ogg files on CD Audio mode
    + Added option to create VCD and SVCD discs from one or multiples files.
    + New method to manage the processes
    + Recode of internal functions
    + Changes on MD5 behavior
    + Other minor code/visual changes
    + Updated some translations (cs and pt_br)


Please, test it and tell me if anything goes wrong. If you found any error/bug/suggestion/something-else, report it. I will try to solve it.
Use it at your own risk big_smile.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Well I downloaded it and I'll tell you what I think the next time I burn a CD (which could take some time, atm I don't even know the paths for my drives, that's how often I use them D:)

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

In the next version I will add a method for select the drives and the temp directory more simple than edit the source file directly.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Thanks very much for this. I've needed something very simple just to burn CDs and DVDs for a long time. I like PyBurn and would like it more if it could handle DVDs. This is doing the job perfectly for me!

May I suggest an option to erase CDRWs?

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Hi,

Excellent program!! Kudos for a simple GUI that does not depend on all sorts of gnome libraries.

May I make a few suggestions:
1. It would be great if there is a way to show the user how much data has been burnt.
2. Once the burn process has been started, consider disabling the "Close" button or atleast show a dialog box so that accidental clicks do not terminate the burn process and create a coaster

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Hi. Thanks for all the suggestions and comments.
1) Option to erase CDRW and DVDRW will be added in the next version.
2) Improve the close button its in development (professional language cool).
3) I will investigate how to translate the application.
4) About the information in the burn process... I'm sorry, but I only show the stdout of cdrecord/mkisofs/growisofs, if these don't show the info, I don't too.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

It's working great on this end. I put it through the wringer with two CDRWs and four DVD+Rs this morning, and had no problems whatsoever.

I notice that the output for burning an ISO lacks the progress output; I'm used to PyBurn where ISO burning has the scrolling progress text. Is that just a -v (verbose) flag for cdrecord? I was wondering if that could be added, just so there's some indication that the ISO is being burned. Otherwise, there's no display, and you have to patiently wait and hope that everything is moving as it should. And both times it did fine, but it's a little spooky. wink

This is great stuff, by the way. Thanks again! I'm a very happy Openbox user with this! big_smile

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

I translated the application, but a problem.

The button Record is out of window. Please, resize a little. Brazilian Portuguese have large words when translated. For example: Add File = Adicionar Arquivo.

Ps 1: There some shortcut _ is same. Look the list:

_Add File
_Add Directory
_Burn project
_Burn

Please, fix this, like, for example:

Add _File
Add _Directory
Burn _project
_Burn.

Ps 2: Send translated for you in e-mail.

Ps 3: Sorry my English.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

I am not blaming this on the program, but I just had a problem. I installed this via yaourt, and I had to comment out the md5sum line of the .pkgbuild to get it to install. I listed the temporary folder as /tmp and then it screwed up my file permissions for /tmp and I could no longer boot my computer. Once i figured this out it was an easy fix, but I am just letting you know incase it has anything to do with Recorder. Other than this problem I like the application smile

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Hi, currently I have added the verbose option of cdrecord, fixed the shortcuts and the initial window size.
Recorder temp directory is not suppose to be system temp, so I modified conf dialog and now temp directory by default is /var/tmp/recorder, to avoid possible future errors.
I included pt_BR translation, too. (Thanks kramerxiita)

But I'm waiting for more fixes/changes to release the next version.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

This looks interesting. A feature I always look for in a burning app is the option to verify the integrity of the files on the disc after a burn. This would be a nice feature to have in a future release.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

just wanted to post to tell you that I can not get this to work properly.  It opens up, it lets me add songs, I tell it to burn and I can hear my cdrom take off, but after that it spits out the cd, and i get no sort of output on what is or isnt happening.  I will have to investigate further, since I am not giving you ANY information I know it isnt helping you either.  So i will look into it a bit more, I only tryied a few times very late last night.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

mmmm... I'm not sure of what it's the problem... the program isn't complicated, the only problems that i can imagine are: dev wrong, no space left on temp dir, exceeded max size of cd/dvd, permision issues on dirs, mkisofs/cdrecord/growisofs not found...

Maybe you found the first bug tongue.

I currently finished the coding for the next release, In a few days I will release it. To finish, I want to create a .desktop file for menu's and an icon to the app.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Some comments about the release...
- Mode CD Audio supports the filetypes that supports cdrecord: WAV. Maybe It doesn't seem the best decision, but there are applications to convert audio files between different formats (mpg123, oggdec, etc) and the job of recorder isn't this it.

- Finally, option to verify the integrity of the cd wasn't implemented. I tried and tried, but I don't found a method to make work. Off course, I will keep trying for the next releases.

Have fun smile.
