Looking to set a beginning position and an ending position in mp4 or wav file.

Hello,

I am looking for something that allows me to play a mp4 or a wav file and set a starting position via code and set a ending position so that it will only play in that range. (ability to set two markers).
Must be able to replay in that range as welll.
This is also assuming no timing losses either. :-)
Also looking for the ability to change those markers to any range.

Thanks,

Ben

I think you will eventually need to evaluate players, such as DIVX.

There is an example of using MCI, which has a Seek method.

@AivsCoder

Do you need to play video as well as audio?

Hi there, Aikimark,

Yes I would liike to play audio alone as wave file (preferably) or video with audio.

It looks like there are MANY components for Delphi to handle video and audio manipulation.  The vast majority of them cost money.  Are you looking for commercial, free, or just whatever is available?

I found a rather large list here:
http://www.torry.net/pages.php?id=168

and narrowed it down to one that can "Convert one input file to multiple files".  Since it also states that it can work with streams I would assume you could strip out the desired portion of your audio/video to an in memory stream to be played.
It is third on the list here:
