Additional Comments

Use the recordFormat property to specify what kind of file to create when recording a sound, depending on how the file will be used.

Value:

The recordFormat is one of the following:

aiff records a file in AIFF format

wave records a file in WAV format

ulaw records a file in AU format

movie records a file in QuickTime format

By default, the recordFormat property is "aiff".

Comments:

The recordFormat property determines what kind of file is created when you use the record sound command to record sound.

Not all sound file formats are compatible with all supported codecs. If you try to record sound using a recordCompressionType that is not compatible with the recordFormat, the compression type will be changed automatically to a codec that is compatible with the specified recordFormat.

Important! If the recordFormat is set to "movie", the resulting file is in the QuickTime file format. QuickTime files cannot be played as audio clips. To play such a sound, either create a player and set its filenameproperty to the path of the file you recorded, or use the play videoclip form of the playcommand.
