HYPE & Audio – Early Findings

Playing with HYPE some more this time comparing the difference between calling ComputeSpectrum() direct and via SoundAnalyzer.

SoundAnalyzer is currently using the getFrequencyIndex() method which should spread the ByteArray data psychoacoustically based on Brandens’ previously collated values. See the Hype Blog Post – Understanding…

I’m using 2 different apps/UIs so the display is not identical but the way the data is drawn is! Also don’t run 2 files at the same time as each will display the combined data – that’s a SoundMixer issue, naughty!

Check out these examples:

NOTE: There seems to be an issue with the ‘no hype’ files – returning an end of file error, seems to be an issue with FMS especially if other flash apps are running in other matching browser tabs/windows. If you see it check what else is running flash, close it and refresh your browser – it should go eventually… sorry!

When i get time i’ll test the other methods getOctave() and getFrequencyRange().



A couple of experiments using HYPE.

Hype is great! I’ve been staring at these just tweaking them slightly over and over again – so many permutations it’s very possible the really good ones got lost in the process…

The Word Is
No End In Sight

Unhype The HYPE!

Brandon Hall & Joshua Davis have released ‘The HYPE Framework’

Check out the HYPE Videos and HYPE Blog to see what’s on offer.

For me initially it was all about the potential of the SoundAnalyzer wrapper class but now, after some time spent delving a little bit deeper, i think i have truly found a gem!

Visualizing An RTMP FLV

A quick example of an idea i had yesterday.

Visualizing MyLiveSession

The Gamut Version

Just a small part of the new media player framework i’m building in preparation for the re-launch of MyLiveSession.

[NOTE]: Sometimes Flash Media Server will throw a sandbox error (it’s very random – not something i can fix yet) so if it does you’ll need to refresh your browser.

New Flash Lite Contract Working For Orange

I’ve just started a new project developing a Flash Lite 3 application for Orange.

I can’t talk about the application at this time except to say it’s a cool idea and hopefully i’ll be able to make something that will help promote Flash Lite as a serious alternative to the typical technologies used by Orange.

Anyway because i haven’t touched FL3 since my live streaming video demo i’ve now got my head down learning and experimenting… What ever i discover during this quest i will post here for all to see as long as it doesn’t compromise my contractual obligations. 🙂

So here’s some of my recent findings:
