     This shows how to play MP3s and WMAs directly from resources without writing them to disk first. For decoding it uses the functions of the Windows Media Format SDK v9, wich ships with all Windows Media Players >= v9 (or google for "wmfdist.exe"). It allocates some memory, copies the sound from the resource to that memory, and plays it using DirectSound. You can control volume, balance and position. As the DirectSound stream uses an Windows API timer, debugging is pretty hard. You might be better off if you put the whole playback stuff into a DLL.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
