InetGet() in background and _SoundPlay()

Recommended Posts

FaridAgl

Well, I'm trying to write an online MP3 player, the goal is to play the MP3 file from an URL.

http://www.afk-manager.ir/test/Listen.mp3

My idea, is simple, download the file with InetGet() in the background, and play it using _SoundPlay() while the script is downloading.

However, the idea doesn't work!!! _SoundPlay() simply fails. I have also tested it with _SoundOpen(), it fails too with an error value of 1 which is "MCI open error", and I have no idea what even MCI is.

Any idea, suggestion, work around etc is warmly welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

D4RKON3,

I have no idea what even MCI is

Media Control Interface. :)

Both _SoundPlay and _SoundOpen check for the existence of the sound file before running, so I would be surprised if you could use them on a file that is currently downloading. ;)

Well, thanks for the info.

I just noticed something interesting, I can play the MP3 file that is in download progress with Windows Media Player and it plays the downloaded parts of the file.

Wondering if I could do the same in AutoIt as well.

D4RKON3,

Have you tried searching the forum? I seem to remember that bass.dll can do this - there is a Bass UDF out there but I have never used it. :)

Well, I found _BASS_StreamCreateURL() which I hope is the way.

Thanks Melba.
