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...

Regards,
Matvey

Sorry, can't accept your answere :-(

Yesterday I just found a Delphi freeware component for playing MP3 files. It's at http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/delphi/d30f13.htm

Maybe you know something about MOD???

For mp3 playback you can use the mpegplay.dll, get it here http://www.ig.com.ua/wabbit/programs/mpegplay.html along with a simple example. For the mod playback you can use the MIDAS sound system at http://www.housemarque.com/midas. A lot of trackers are made with it.

Hope it helps.

Thanks!

I just found the mp3 playing dll today as I said before.
But I think the MIDAS thing will do the job for MOD now!

I'll look at it today...

Hi Pedro!

I found that the MIDAS thing doesn't plays everything and has lot's of problems.
I found another dll with sources at http://www.jps.net/olivierl. It has exapmples in C++ and proves to be much better and to play more files. However I find dificulties with migrating the examples to Delphi. Wana look at it and help me? For much more point's of course!

Thanks!

Matvey
