Use mmio to handle multiple files played by MCI?
Posted on 1997-07-31
I try to play video from a CDrom using MCI commands, Under VC++4.2 and Win95. I know the MCI driver I have uses mmio functions to read data. My question is, since there are more than one video file in a disk(like a Video CD), how I can play video seamlessly? I know I need to define my own mmio procedure(mmioProc), but does one mmioProc only refers to one opened mmio file? Because the handle is in the MMIOINFO. In order to handle multiple file, which is the right approch?
a. detecting the end of file, close mmio then open the next file. I think it's too slow.
b. open all video files, each has its own handle, while changing file, assign the new handle to MMIOINFO, then call mmioProc.
c. other method. Please do tell me more.
I am a newbie in this area, please help.
