Hi there!

I want to be able to play MOD type files from my Delphi code.
Source of doing that will be perfect, but I can be helped also by some other way like some DLLs or C code, I mean ANYTHING!!!
If you know where I can get it or if you can send me something it will really make me happy!

The same question is about MP3 type files...

Need more points? Just say...

For mp3 playback you can use the mpegplay.dll, get it here along with a simple example. For the mod playback you can use the MIDAS sound system at A lot of trackers are made with it.

Hope it helps.
