Using WaveOutWrite and low level wave stuff

I would like to see some examples using the low
level Wave stuff. Like WaveOutOpen and WaveOutWrite.
I am in the process of programming wave player using
double buffer methods. But how to implement that using
the Multimedia API I don't know.

Hi, I used to write some code for play low lever wave, such as PlayWave:
UINT WINAPI PlayWave(LPHWAVEOUT lphWaveOut, UINT nDeviceID,                           HWND hWnd,
                     LPWAVEFORMAT lpFormat,
                     HPCSTR hpWaveData, DWORD dwWaveDataSize,
                     DWORD dwLoops, BOOL bDispErrMsg)
{
    ...
    ...
    HWAVEOUT hWaveOut = NULL;
    LPWAVEHDR lpWaveOutHdr = NULL;
    UINT nStatus;
   
    nStatus = ::waveOutOpen(&hWaveOut, nDeviceID, lpFormat,
                            (DWORD)(WORD)hWnd, NULL,
                             WAVE_ALLOWSYNC |                                                 CALLBACK_WINDOW);

    if ((lpWaveOutHdr = (LPWAVEHDR)
                         GlobalAllocPtr(GMEM_MOVEABLE |                                   GMEM_SHARE,                                                                                                                      (DWORD)sizeof(WAVEHDR))) != NULL)
    {
       lpWaveOutHdr->lpData = (LPSTR)hpWaveData;
       lpWaveOutHdr->dwBufferLength = dwWaveDataSize;
       lpWaveOutHdr->dwFlags = WHDR_BEGINLOOP | WHDR_ENDLOOP;                        
       lpWaveOutHdr->dwLoops = dwLoops;
           
       ::waveOutPrepareHeader(hWaveOut, lpWaveOutHdr,                                          sizeof(WAVEHDR));
           
        nStatus = ::waveOutWrite(hWaveOut, lpWaveOutHdr,                                          sizeof(WAVEHDR));
    }
    else
      nStatus = MMSYSERR_NOMEM;
   
    if (nStatus != 0)    // error
    {
        ...
    }
   
    if (lphWaveOut != NULL)
        *lphWaveOut = hWaveOut;
   
    return nStatus;
}

CD-ROM.
