I have been tasked with creating a form to allow users to download and listen to audio files.  The files will be downloaded from FTP by the form to a temporary space on the users machine. The user will need to see a slider or a waveform to show the progress of the playing audio and start / pause buttons. The user will be listening to this audio and making notes within textbox's on the form to be saved in the database corresponding to the audio filename.
I can handle all the task's for this project except the audio player piece, are there any open source player api's besides using windows media player? I want to keep the control small on the form, in other words I dont want to see a video player.

Can you give me a little more of the code to make the call to open the player? Do I need to instantiate the vlc.exe or one of the .dll's?

There is a Windows API call, sndPlaySound32,  that will let you design you own minimal interface. Below is a a very old snippet from this Microsoft page - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/158140
Declare Function sndPlaySound32 Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
       (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long

   Sub PlaySound()
       'If Application.CanPlaySounds Then 'not needed for Access
           'Substitute the path and filename of the sound you want to play
           Call sndPlaySound32("c:\win95\media\chimes.wav", 0)
       'End If
   End Sub

Open in new window
