Overview

This class represents a connection to a Discord voice server and channel. It can be used to play audio files and streams and to control playback on currently playing tracks. The method Bot#voice_connect can be used to connect to a voice channel.

discordrb does latency adjustments every now and then to improve playback quality. I made sure to put useful defaults for the adjustment parameters, but if the sound is patchy or too fast (or the speed varies a lot) you should check the parameters and adjust them to your connection: #adjust_interval, #adjust_offset, and #adjust_average.

Instance Attribute Details

#adjust_averagetrue, false

This value determines whether or not the adjustment length should be averaged with the previous value. This may be useful on slower connections where latencies vary a lot. In general, it will make adjustments more smooth, but whether that is desired behaviour should be tried on a case-by-case basis.

Returns:

  • (true, false)

    whether adjustment lengths should be averaged with the respective previous value.

def adjust_average
  @adjust_average
end

#adjust_debugtrue, false

Disable the debug message for length adjustment specifically, as it can get quite spammy with very low intervals

Returns:

  • (true, false)

    whether length adjustment debug messages should be printed

  @adjust_debug
end

#adjust_intervalInteger

discordrb will occasionally measure the time it takes to send a packet, and adjust future delay times based on that data. This makes voice playback more smooth, because if packets are sent too slowly, the audio will sound patchy, and if they're sent too quickly, packets will "pile up" and occasionally skip some data or play parts back too fast. How often these measurements should be done depends a lot on the system, and if it's done too quickly, especially on slow connections, the playback speed will vary wildly; if it's done too slowly however, small errors will cause quality problems for a longer time.

Returns:

  • (Integer)

    how frequently audio length adjustments should be done, in ideal packets (20 ms).

# File 'lib/discordrb/voice/voice_bot.rb', line 43

def adjust_interval
  @adjust_interval
end

#adjust_offsetInteger

This particular value is also important because ffmpeg may take longer to process the first few packets. It is recommended to set this to 10 at maximum, otherwise it will take too long to make the first adjustment, but it shouldn't be any higher than #adjust_interval, otherwise no adjustments will take place. If #adjust_interval is at a value higher than 10, this value should not be changed at all.

Returns:

  • (Integer)

    the packet number (1 packet = 20 ms) at which length adjustments should start.

#encoderEncoder (readonly)

Returns the encoder used to encode audio files into the format required by Discord.

Returns:

  • (Encoder)

    the encoder used to encode audio files into the format required by Discord.

# File 'lib/discordrb/voice/voice_bot.rb', line 34

def encoder
  @encoder
end

#length_overrideFloat

If this value is set, no length adjustments will ever be done and this value will always be used as the length (i. e. packets will be sent every N seconds). Be careful not to set it too low as to not spam Discord's servers. The ideal length is 20 ms (accessible by the IDEAL_LENGTH constant), this value should be slightly lower than that because encoding + sending takes time. Note that sending DCA files is significantly faster than sending regular audio files (usually about four times as fast), so you might want to set this value to something else if you're sending a DCA file.

Returns:

  • (Float)

    the packet length that should be used instead of calculating it during the adjustments, in ms.

#stream_timeInteger? (readonly)

Returns:

  • (Integer, nil)

def stream_time
  @stream_time
end

#volumeFloat

The factor the audio's volume should be multiplied with. 1 is no change in volume, 0 is completely silent, 0.5 is half the default volume and 2 is twice the default.

Returns:

  • (Float)

    the volume for audio playback, 1.0 by default.

# File 'lib/discordrb/voice/voice_bot.rb', line 139

def continue
  @paused = false
end

#destroyObject

Permanently disconnects from the voice channel; to reconnect you will have to call Bot#voice_connect again.

end

#encrypted?true, false

Discord no longer supports unencrypted voice communication.

Returns whether audio data sent will be encrypted.

Returns:

  • (true, false)

    whether audio data sent will be encrypted.

end

#filter_volumeInteger

Returns the volume used as a filter for ffmpeg/avconv.

Returns:

  • (Integer)

    the volume used as a filter for ffmpeg/avconv.

# File 'lib/discordrb/voice/voice_bot.rb', line 120

def filter_volume
  @encoder.filter_volume
end

#filter_volume=(value) ⇒ Object

Set the filter volume. This volume is applied as a filter for decoded audio data. It has the advantage that using it is much faster than regular volume, but it can only be changed before starting to play something.

Parameters:

  • value (Integer)

    The value to set the volume to. For possible values, see #volume

116
# File 'lib/discordrb/voice/voice_bot.rb', line 114

def filter_volume=(value)
  @encoder.filter_volume = value
end

#pauseObject

Pause playback. This is not instant; it may take up to 20 ms for this change to take effect. (This is usually negligible.)


126
127
128
# File 'lib/discordrb/voice/voice_bot.rb', line 126

def pause
  @paused = true
end

#play(encoded_io) ⇒ Object

Plays a stream of raw data to the channel. All playback methods are blocking, i. e. they wait for the playback to finish before exiting the method. This doesn't cause a problem if you just use discordrb events/commands to play stuff, as these are fully threaded, but if you don't want this behaviour anyway, be sure to call these methods in separate threads.

Parameters:

  • encoded_io (IO)

    A stream of raw PCM data (s16le)

      Discordrb::LOGGER.warn("Reason: #{e}")
    end
  end

  # Close the stream
  encoded_io.close
end

#play_dca(file) ⇒ Object

Note:

DCA playback will not be affected by the volume modifier (#volume) because the modifier operates on raw PCM, not opus data. Modifying the volume of DCA data would involve decoding it, multiplying the samples and re-encoding it, which defeats its entire purpose (no recoding).

Plays a stream of audio data in the DCA format. This format has the advantage that no recoding has to be done - the file contains the data exactly as Discord needs it.

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)

#skip(secs) ⇒ Object

Skips to a later time in the song. It's impossible to go back without replaying the song.
