bool isRecording = await FlutterAudioRecorderPlugin.isRecording;

// Start recording
await FlutterAudioRecorderPlugin.start(path: _controller.text, audioOutputFormat: AudioOutputFormat.AAC);

Encoding format

For now, the plugin only use the AAC compression to encode audio. You can specify the extension of the output audio file in the file path that you give to the start method. The recognized extensions are :

  • .m4a
  • .mp4
  • .aac

If the file path does not finish with these extensions, the ".m4a" extension is added by default.

Exceptions

The start method raise an exception if :

  • A file already exists at the given file path
  • The parent directory of the file path does not exist
