Replay Converter 3.32 audio alerts settings & response from developer to me

Petro saids
Wait for the new Replay AV 8 whenever it comes out and you will get the latest version of Replay Converter included and installed at the same time.

The developer said

You are very welcome. When I added the audio alerts I had you and the blind
community in mind. There will actually be another update to Replay
Converter coming soon. In the next version, I decided to add different
audio alerts depending if a conversion was successful or not. The version
that is out now just alerts when a conversion process finished no matter if
it was successful or not.

Replay Music 2.51 co-existing with Replay Music 3.55

Will not work with Vista operating system.

Developer said
Yes, he can try Replay Music
2.51 to see if he gets better recognition. However, if he has Vista it will
not work. Only RM versions 3.0 and greater will work on Vista. So, if he
doesn't have Vista, he can just install RM 2.51. No need to uninstall RM
3.55. He also won't need to re-enter a new registration code for 2.51, as
his code should work for both versions.

Replay Music 3.55 & burning CDs solution

The fix and to not receive any error messages when burning your tracks to an audio CD format is to not insert the blank CD into the tray until you hear the "proceed with burn" message. When you see this message insert the disc and choose yes button/link. Worked for me. Other tips are:

To select the tracks in the listbox view you can use ctrl+spacebar to select the tracks. Standard Windows keyboard commands here. Use ctrl+down arrow to go down your tracks and then use ctrl+spacebar to select the track. This was the case before in previous versions. I chose 16 out of the possible 24 tracks in the listview box.

I then chose burn CD button.

I am then asked if I want to use my previous settings. Chose yes.

You will hear a "start burn or start burn" button but do not activate this button. Wait on this screen as it is doing the processing process. Wait 3-4 minutes and you will hear the proceed the burn message come up for you. Insert the bland CD into the tray. Close the tray drive. Wait. Press enter key on the yes button. The burn to audio CD starts for you. The tray ejects the CD.

Open Windows Media Player 11. Insert the CD disc into the tray and close it. Your CD plays for you.

Within WMP 11's interface if you tab a few times you will see the tracks in a listview. For me I heard the 16 tracks listed there.

Replay Music 3.55 released

Replay Music 3.55
Today, March 11, 2009, 4 hours ago
- Uses the new CD/DVD burn functionality.
- Fixed a transfer to iTunes bug.
- Fixed a bug with the validate registration buffer

Petro's tips only are below.

1. Download Replay Music 3.55 setup file to hard drive.
2. Uninstall older version you have of Replay Music.
Use control panel's add or remove programs.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Remove the "Replay Music 3" folder in your C:\Program Files\. That is delete the Replay Music 3 folder.
4. Run the setup file you downloaded in step #1.
5. On last setup screen choose exit button to complete the setup installation.
6. Reboot computer.
7. Run the Replay Music application by clicking its desktop icon.

The interface is still the same. I was able to burn an audio CD by choosing the burn button. I was not able to do this before and I did report these issues in the past to Applian. If it doesn't work for you, you can always use another program to do the burns for you.

In the listbox view where all your tracks appear I tabbed to this listbox and then arrowed down one time and did a copy all command - ctrl+a -which selected all my tracks. An audio Cd can only have up to 60-80 minutes or less. I use 70 minute capacity CDs for audio and if you make data (.mp3) CDs then you can put up to 700 MB.

If you hear a button that saids something like "start burn or burn CD" during the burn setup do not activate it. Wait for a new message box to appear.

With JAWS 10 during the burn process I chose NO to save my previous settings. At the last screen I got an error message. Clicked ok button and the burn proceeded for me.

I decided to burn some new tracks but this time I said YES to use my previous settings.

Replay Media Catcher 3.02 released

Replay Media Catcher 3.02
Yesterday, February 27, 2009, 5:27:04 PM
-Update to the plug-in system which helps prevent firewall-related trouble..
-Fix for YouTube where YouTube videos will download 100% in demo mode.
-Fix for YouTube where YouTube videos won't download twice.
-Fix for MP4 files being transferred via RTMP, they didn't save properly before.
-Fix for miscellaneous sites that use the RTMP protocol.
-Miscellaneous interface improvements (tick marks on header control, new splash screen, alternating row colors).
-"Tips on start up" now shows up properly.
-HTTP files are now renamed by browser window (toggle in HTTP Plug-in settings).
-FLVToMP3 tool updated to tell user if there are no MP3 frames in an FLV and what they should do about it.
-Many smaller updates and bug fixes.

Replay Media Catcher 3.02 is accessible with JAWS 10. It has menu bars:
Record, Transfer, Tools, Help

The Tools menu is unusual. In regular conditions you will only hear one option read to you while in this menu. You will hear settings. The Tools menu actually has 4 total choices. To bring these additional choices do

Route JAWS to PC Cursor.
insert minus on numpad.
Locate the word "Tools".
JAWS left mouse click on this word "Tools". (use numpad / symbol).
Go back to PC cursor mode. (press numpad + symbol)
You will hear the 4 choices now within the Tools menu bar correctly. Settings, converter, extract...

I do not know why this happens. If anyone is reading this run Replay AV 8 with Window-Eyes and use your mouse cursor to left click on the menu bar items like File, which isn't read in normal conditions to see what happens. Do this with some of the other menus and see if you still get the double items in some of the menus still.

Replay Media Catcher 3.01 and now 3.02 includes a very accessible built-in converter tool. It allows you to convert your captured files to another format file type within the same application. I converted two .mp4 files to .mp3 successfully. The converter rocks!
