i talking about a streams

  1. Ok.. first .. “SetPosition” function don’t clear mixbuffer contents, i do it now manuale by call “ClearMixBuff”.. Why?
  2. when i use WINMM (HW2D on and off) sound was skipped when windows minimizedmaximized or menu draws.. Why? Don’t told me about my videoaudiomotherboard – another engines works fine (BASS, xAudio, WinAmp for example)
  3. when i use DSOUND, problem 2 is not present.. but
  4. both DSOUND and WINMM is very density to hard drives work.. in another word, when i start huge application (Delphi, Photoshop.. etc) i hear sound problems – think it is a input buffer problem

Ok, finaly:
Can u change this situation? I like u engine and i want to use it, but…

ohh.. i remeber :smile: can u produce DLL only for streams play for me?

FMOD is sound engine for games, demos.. etc.. not for music players.. yeahh?

ok..
thanx anyway

ps: meanwhile, i know about BASS only DirectSound.. don’t kick me
pps: its look like i need to program my own engine.. ok, i found mpg123lib sources and start work

FMOD is also a great lib for players ! My lame VB (yes !) player sound great without criples, eat 6/7 % of cpu (thx to Brett for code optimisations), there is no latency, all winamp can do, fmod do it too.

As Brett said, FMod is capable of very low latencies! My VB player (I’ll release soon) was able to play without skips with a 20ms of buffer using DSound and MMX!

However a little pre-buffer for MP3 or other streams can be very useful!
Imagine a game that plays an MP3 on the background. Imagine also that the player finished a level and the game is starting to load another scene with the sound on the background. Even with DSound and a powerful processor, we may get skips on the playback. And this doesn’t sound good… :sad:

sound_play part of my player(mp3 stream only) is finished whis in two days.. its based on mpg123 decode engine.. and i use WinMM (not directsound) right now.. and i have no scips.. no latency.. independs in-buffer size and out-buffer size…


yes winmm is crap every programmer knows this

maybe.. but every problem has his solve
