I’ve ha problem with opening MP3 files with the following commands:
sFileName = “\myserver\mymp3.mp”
FSOUND_Stream_Open(sFileName, FSOUND_NORMAL + FSOUND_MPEGACCURATE, 0, 0)
The function takes 5 to 15 seconds to complete. If i open a .wav file this works much better (0.1 – 0.3 seconds).
Is there any way to open the file faster?
Please help me out, this is a major problem becouse im working on a radio automation program.

Thanks for your reply,
no it’s just when i open it thru the network. Local file works fine.
The file is just 5 mb big and the network is 100mbits so it should not take 15 seconds (it takes for about 1 second to copy the file over the network manual).
But i tried to open it with MPEGACCURATE and store the length in a database, it works fine.
But, how exakt is the FSOUND_Stream_SetTime when not using MPEGACCURATE?

Does the same problem occur when opening the same file on your local drive?
I think, depending on the size of the file you’re trying to open, this is likely to be due to FSOUND_MPEGACCURATE – the accurate determination of the length of the file is quite a slow process.
Perhaps you could open the file using MPEGACCURATE before it is needed and store the length, etc somewhere?
