How to work with single songs and video clips

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

As already stated in the How to use the control in your projects section, the first thing to do is to call the InitSoundSystem method (inside the form initialisation function).

 

At this point you can use are the following method to load and play a sound file:

 

LoadSound or LoadSoundFromRawFile to load a song from the hard disk

LoadSoundFromMemory or LoadSoundFromRawMemory to load a song from a memory buffer

LoadInternetStream to load a song from the Internet or from a Shoutcast/Icecast server

PlaySound to playback the loaded song

PauseSound to pause the currently playing song

ResumeSound to resume a paused song

StopSound to stop the currently playing song

SeekSound to seek the song to a given position

ForwardSound to forward the song position of a certain amount

RewindSound to rewind the song position of a certain amount

CloseSound to discard the loaded song from memory: note that once the container form will be closed, you won't need to do any clean-up action: the control will automatically free each previously allocated resource.

 

or the following methods of the VideoPlayer class to load and play a video clip file:

 

VideoPlayer.Create to create a new video player object

VideoPlayer.Load to load a video from the hard disk

VideoPlayer.Play to playback the loaded video

VideoPlayer.Pause to pause the currently playing video

VideoPlayer.Resume to resume a paused video

VideoPlayer.Stop to stop the currently playing video

VideoPlayer.Seek to seek the video to a given position

VideoPlayer.Forward to forward the video position of a certain amount

VideoPlayer.Rewind to rewind the video position of a certain amount

VideoPlayer.Close to discard the loaded video from memory: note that once the container form will be closed, you won't need to do any clean-up action: the control will automatically free each previously allocated resource.
