My Windows application can play an AVI via Delphi TMediaPlayer (i.e., Windows Media Player?) at the same time fmod is playing one or more sounds.
I have a user who’s doing exactly that, but he doesn’t get the sound from his AVI. FMOD is active, but not playing a sound at the time.
On my system, I not only get the sound from the AVI, but can play another sound concurrently using FMOD.
The user’s machine plays this AVI with sound in other applications which, supposedly, aren’t using FMOD or playing other sounds.
What might be the difference between our systems that lets me hear his AVI but won’t let him?
One other thing: his copy of the previous version of my app, which uses an earlier version of FMOD, [i:23qhfe88]does[/i:23qhfe88] play the AVI with sound. Sorry, I don’t recall which version of FMOD that is, but the current version of my app is pretty much up-to-date with FMOD.

An update on the differences between the older version of my application and the current one.
The older version (which lets the AVI sound through) is using FMOD 126.96.36.199, and it pauses any sound that’s playing before starting the AVI.
The newer version, which doesn’t let the AVI sound through, is using FMOD 188.8.131.52. It doesn’t pause other sounds first.
In my user’s case, there is no FMOD-playable sound, so it should be irrelevant whether sound is paused or not. And in both cases, FMOD remains initialized throughout.

Oh, how I wish I could!
But it’s hard to do when the system where it’s failing isn’t my own, and especially when my own system doesn’t show the same symptoms.
Have you ever heard of a sound card or driver that lets only one application in at a time?
