Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Type

integer for Visual Basic

short for Visual C++

 

 

Remarks

The size, expressed in milliseconds, of the DirectSound buffer used for song playback.

 

The supported range for this property, whose default value is 500, is between 100 and 5000: higher or lower values will be automatically cut to the nearest supported value.

 

Decreasing the size of the DirectSound buffer will result in a smaller latency time: for details about latency, take a look to the How to deal with latency section.
