I was not happy with the answers for the last discussion on this so I thought I would try again. Here is some code that is designed to implement most of the stream2.c example in Visual Basic. It runs but only produces quiet clicks. Does anybody know what is wrong with this code? Byte order is not the problem.
‘ Try to implement the crucial parts of the stream2.c project in VB\
‘ Just call DoMain routine.
‘ Runs but only makes small clicking sound.
‘ What is wrong?

CopyMemory passes parameters ByRef by default, which means it will pass a pointer to the memoryadress where your variables are located.
This is fine for your buffer, since you want to copy that.
The value that the function passes is passed byval, and CONTAINS a pointer to the buffer you want to fill.
If you would pass this as a pointer, you would be passing a pointer to a pointer, which is not very useful, because it is not what the function expects.
To solve this in vb, you should pass the buffer reference ByVal, which is done as follows:
[code:2hhp3exb]CopyMemory ByVal abuff, buff(1), dlen[/code:2hhp3exb]

you are writing your stream callbacks all wrong, here is the correct way:
Public Function endcallback(ByVal Stream As Long, ByVal buff As Long, ByVal length As Long, ByVal param As Long) As Long
'Put whatever you want it to do here. endcallback = 1

Thanks, I changed the callback parameters and tried to use CopyMemory
to fill the buffer. However, the CopyMemory call kills the program.
Private Declare Sub CopyMemory Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (Destination As Any, Source As Any, ByVal Length As Long)
Function streamcallback(ByVal stream As Long, ByVal abuff As Long, ByVal dlen As Long, ByVal Param As Long) As Long
Dim buff() As Byte ReDim buff(1 To dlen)
...Fill up buff...
CopyMemory abuff, buff(1), dlen
