Look at the Sound.au3 UDF - you can find details in the Help file under <User Defined Function Management - Sound Management>. Because it uses an internal Windows DLL, it should allow you to control any sound file for which you have an installed CODEC. It certainly works "out of the box" on .mp3, .wma and .wav files. :D

There is a full library of functions:

_SoundOpen      - Opens a sound file for use with other _Sound functions.
_SoundPlay      - Play a sound file.
_SoundPause     - Pause a playing sound.
_SoundResume    - Resume a paused sound.
_SoundStop      - Stop a playing sound. 

_SoundLength    - Returns the length of the soundfile.
_SoundPos       - Returns the current position of the sound.
_SoundSeek      - Seeks the sound to the specified position 
_SoundStatus    - Returns the status of the sound (playing, paused, stopped, etc)
_SoundClose     - Closes a sound previously opened with _SoundOpen.

Some of the functions can be used with a simple filename, but it is best to use _SoundOpen to get the $SndID "handle" which lets you access the full range.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
