Sorry for my ever increasing noobiness but ive never used the MCI object before. 1 Question is what am i ment to put as the device name in the MCI object properties?
Also i wanna understand it a bit more, is there a list of commands i can find somewhere?
I have seen the article that someone wrote on it, but im still haveing problems. Also i get an error message about not having an alias / drive / or somthing... whats all that about?
I meant that MCI in general, is obsolete - not just the MCI extension. Not even proper programmers use it any more.
There isn't a DirectX extension - only Directshow, which is for video (it can do audio too, but I wouldn't recommend it).
For audio, just use MMF2's built-in functions, unless you need something really advanced (like if you're trying to make a sophisticated media player), in which case there are a few other extensions you could try (or even bass.dll).
