Today I visited www.codeguru.com and see the Audio CD player in multimedia section. this is really a good player.
I have some question related to this player.
My question is > why this player is not synchronized with windows CD player ?like when I run Windows CD player while your CD player is running then windows CD player takes control of CD.and when I press "Stop" or "Pause" on your CD Player then next track start playing on windows CD Player.
How we can synchronized both CD Player so that pressing "Stop" on one CD Player cd stop playing and pressing "Play" on other CD Player it start playing.
I am working with VC 6.0, but I have problem with mmsystem.h. It shows compile errors. Is there a problem with mmsystem.h under w2k? Or have I forgoten to do something. I am just recompiling your cd_audio sources.
I cannot obtain the drive letter using MCI (I am successful at getting the device ID). I've tried nearly everything from their online documentation to achieve this. I'm running on MS Windows NT 4.0 Workstation. Could some please e-mail me a solution on how to do this with MCI.
A great example! I'v coded my own cd player using the MCI commands as this example but theres one catch. Seems to only work with the sound blaster family cards. I always thought that MCI used the windows API that would be compatible with all cards? Any ideas or answers to code for all sound cards? I have looked and looked through msdn and have found no answers.....
I am one of the ever increasing number of people with multiple CD-ROM drives on their system and I would like to extend the functionality of my program to be able to play CD audio from either of my drives. I looked all through the documentation (MSDN and otherwise) and I traced one of the base open or attach functions to one that wants either a CONSTANT or an id for the drive. The code already uses the CONSTANT and it only allows use of the first drive on my system. I thought that the id would allow me to open a second CD-ROM and so I looked a little further trying to see if it told where to get the id. The documentation said that the id value was in either system.ini or in the registry. I looked all through system.ini and I could not find anything that even resembled a device id. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
