[Q] Is call audio locked/unlocked in the telephony app?
I'm trying to plunge into Android and after an afternoon of looking around (online and in books) I'm seeing very little discussion of CALL AUDIO itself. That is, the full two-way audio stream that is handled during a phone call.
What I'd like to do is save that stream out to a file. But the few references I've seen, seem to indicate
1-That's easy, there's a hook for just that call audio stream
2-That's conditional on the telephoney application having allowed that audio stream to be shared, and by default it is not shared/accessible.
So if the telephony application itself, as shipped in the phone, does not set a flag for sharing that audio stream, it cannot be shared. Unless you manage to break in and rewrite the telephony app in the phone itself, which I imagine is a non-trivial exercise for a newb!
The phone in question being an Atrix, or the Droids in general, which appear to all have this telephony audio stream in an ivory tower. (At least, a couple of programmers have told me they'll never be able to touch it.)
So...anyone with a rather specialized knowledge in this area to share? Has Motorola locked up their telephony audio out of reach? Or, am I totally missing the picture?
Seems like the SDK, the online references, the books (yes, I looked at books!) all don't bother to discuss telephony functions in any great depth, besides making calls.
Damned Atrix!Damned Motorola!Damned AT&T!Damned Google!
