Playing Real Audio Sound Files in Delphi
Posted on 1998-08-17
Basically, my question is, can you play Real Audio (*.ra) sound files from a Delphi program.
I have a program where I want to play stored sound files. These sound files a full length songs, and by using the WAV format it just takes up too much space to store these files. By converting them to Real Audio format it reduces the size of a sound file to about 20% of it's original WAV format size.
So, is it possible to play a non-Windows sound file from a Delphi program? Or is there another sound format out there that will save me space? Is it possible to get the file format of a Real Audio file and program it at the lowest level to play it?
