iam trying to create chat app thats support voice and text

i don with the codes but i stick on errors

i send audio stream like that

procedure Tmain.recorderData(Sender: TObject; const Buffer: Pointer;
  BufferSize: Cardinal; var FreeIt: Boolean);
  //user send audio how to send and recive ?
var
  Bytes: TIdBytes;
begin
  Freeit := True;
  if Tcli.Connected then
  begin
    if (Buffer <> nil) and (Buffersize > 0) then
    begin
      try
        Bytes := RawToBytes(Buffer^, Buffersize);
      except
        micstop.Caption := 'Invalid !';
        Exit;
      end;
      begin
      Tcli.IOHandler.Write(BufferSize);
      Tcli.IOHandler.Write(Bytes);
    end;
    end
     else
stop.Caption := 'Server error!';
  end else
    stop.Caption := 'Not connected';
end;

Open in new window


and server execute like this

procedure Tmain.TservExecute(AContext: TIdContext);
var
  AudioDataSize: Integer;
  AudioDataBytes: TIdBytes;
  AudioData : Pointer;
begin
try
    EnterCriticalSection(Section);
    try
      AudioDataSize := AContext.Connection.IOHandler.ReadLongInt();
      AContext.Connection.IOHandler.ReadBytes(AudioDataBytes, AudioDataSize);
      if AudioDataSize > 10 then
      begin
        if AudioDataSize <> 0 then
      begin
        try
          if not main.Player.Active then
          begin
            main.Player.Active := True;
            main.Player.WaitForStart;
          end;
        except
        end;
        if BlockAlign > 1 then
          Dec(AudioDataSize, AudioDataSize mod BlockAlign);
        AudioData := AudioBuffer.BeginUpdate(AudioDataSize);
        try
          BytesToRaw(AudioDataBytes, AudioData^, AudioDataSize);
        finally
          AudioBuffer.EndUpdate;
        end;
      end else
      begin
        Player.Active := False;
        Player.WaitForStop;
      end;
      end;
    finally
      LeaveCriticalSection(Section);
    end;
  except
    on e: exception do showmessage(e.Message)
  end;
end;

Open in new window

//user send message but how to recive ?
var

You should make send buffer header - where you can describe what is following after....
My example of header:
type
  TBuffType = (btAudio, btChat);
  TChatHeader = record
    HeaderMagicCode: Integer;
    BufferType: TBuffType;
    BuffSize: Integer;
  end;

Open in new window


 HeaderMagicCode is a special value (like 999999) - useful when you go out of sync (when stream broke),
BufferType := btAudio when you send audio buffer with size: BuffSize.

When you detect (on server side) using BufferType = btAudio - buffer is audio, and if  BufferType = btChat - then it is chat text.

That will not broke (chat) text. This header can contain destination address, block type (audio, text), size,... Server and client after that will know what is going on.
