i have some design problems…. for me it would be nice if FSOUND_Stream_SetTime() returns AFTER reaching the new position even when i did not use the FSOUND_NONBLOCKING flag. is there a way to check whether a stream is still seeking or if it is finished..

would be cool if FSOUND_Stream_GetOpenState() returns maybe -6 for stream is seeking… ..fmod4 ?


and -> This guy posts too much ?
i did not know that a posting limit exists.. hmmm

I do the FSOUND_Stream_SetTime() right after the user releases the position slider. every 50 ms i peek the playposition with the FSOUND_Stream_GetTime() function to update the actual position of the slider. so when i release the mouse near the end of a stream (about 70mins) you can see that the position slider jumps back to the beginning and then scroll very fast to the new position (during the seek operation)… it seems to me that the settime() function is “nonblocking” ..

finally i found out what the problem is.. It is not a nonblocking settime() function… but gettime() delivers right after seeking maybe 500ms the old playback position.. i think this is due to buffering… look at this output:

here you can see whats happening. the position gets outputted aprox every 50ms (windows timer, not accurate because no multimedia timer)
now it isnt so hard finding a solution for me.
