MPEG Layer-3 Audio Codec
Posted on 1998-02-10
I'm writing an MP3 wave player and I would like to take advantage of the MPEG Layer-3 Audio Codec. I would like to use the Win32 ACM functions to allow the codec to do all the necessary conversions. Where can I obtain both the advanced (64Kbps) and pro version (128Kbps) of this codec so that I can use acmDriverAdd to make it available to my app?
IE4 automatically installs the advanced version of this codec in user's system but I don't wish to rely on it being there since if they haven't installed IE4, it won't.
In addition, I would mainly like to use the pro codec.
I don't know where to obtain either of these. I have IE4 installed. Is the advanced codec in my SYSTEM dir? What filename is it? Can I use this file with acmDriverAdd? Can I include the advanced driver with my app w/o infringing on any copyrights?
Where can I get the pro driver for use with acmDriverAdd? Can I include it with my app w/o infringing on any copyrights?
