Confused about RTL_FM installation

Post by dbrown » Tue Apr 12, 2016 4:19 pm

I am rather confused about how to install rtl-fm for windows. What I am doing is trying to follow the tutorial posted by Marco Johansson about an alternative NOAA weather satellite receiving and decoding system. If someone could put me on the right track as for as a step by step procedure, it will be greatly appreciated. I have a rather extensive computer experience and may be looking at it from a too technical standpoint. Note: I am using a DVB-T+SAB+FM+SDR dongle as my receiver. VB cable to try to pipe the signal from RTL_FM to WXTOIMG.

1. Compile libusb.
2. Compile librtlsdr. Before the compilation, point the include and lib director to that of libusb.
3. You find rtl_fm in the release folder.
