Delphi Audio Components

Hi,

I recently built a nice music jutebox program, which works excellently, however the CPU usage is around 20% (1.3Ghz 512Mb ram) which seems far too high ! I basicaly used the standard mediaplayer component that ships with Delphi (I have D7)

What I need is A new music player component (mp3 wav and WMA) that is PERSONALY RECOMMENDED (state what context/usage you put it to), I can use google too ;-p) *feels clever* I would like it to be as light-weight as possible in terms of CPU/Hardware, it must be able to handle files of 60Mb+ and play them at good quality (196 bps @ minimum).

Oh and one problem I have been having is trying to find an 'OnSongEnd' kind of event ... a timer continuly checking, has a tendancy to miss it occasionaly ;) so if this compont has one (or you could craft one) I would be very happy

thanks in advance

David

I've had only good experience with bass.dll - http://www.un4seen.com/bass.html
and fmod.dll - http://www.fmod.org/

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks Lee Nover, could you give a bit of detail about how to use a DLL ? are the components that will use them ?

i don't know how good this dll is in cpu usage but it comes with a delphi example http://www.un4seen.co.uk/files/bass20.zip

if you look around on the site (www.un4seen.com or www.un4seen.co.uk u will find dlls for wma files and other cda files

good luck

ugh .. seems I missed that comment .. sorry

there are ready classes that import the dll's functions
u then simply use those classes .. there are also examples for both dlls
don't know if there are "OnSongEnd" events or alike .. haven't used those in more than 3 years .. already then it had virtualy anything you'd need :)
