Hello, I have a small question.
I’m planning to use fmod in our next demo and as I was reading the tutorial I noticed that you can either load an entire mp3 file to memory and decode it (but uses alot of memory) or you can make fmod read from disc and decode as you go along.
Now, being a democoder and wanting maximum preformance I thought It might be better to load the entire mp3 to memory and read the decoded data from there.
The tutorial however says that you should only do this with small samples.
The question now basicly is:
Is it ok to do it this way or will the decoded mp3 take up to much RAM?
How much RAM can you count on being used given a 3 minute mp3?
