Playing Movie With Left Or Right Audio Channel Supports
hi all,

Does anyone know how to play a movie file (.dat), with left or right audio channel support?

I have tried Windows Media Player control and MCISendString API, both of these methods play the movie perfectly, but I can't control the Left or Right audio channel of the movie.

How can I set both of my speakers play left audio channel only, instead of stereo sound?


Audio Related: Change Speaker Setup?
When you go to the Control Panel -> Multimedia -> Playback -> Advanced Preferences -> Speaker Setup you can choose which kind of speaker setup you have.

I'm usually using quadrophonic speakers, but at late night I use headphones.

Is it possible to change the setup from VB, with some kind of registry related API perhaps? I have no idea that where the speaker setup info is saved, but I belive it is somewhere in the registry... It's just so boring to click so many times... :P

Alternatively I could do the thing by feeding mouse clicks and stuff but that's just an alternative.

VB + Goldwave To Play VOX Audio
I need to launch the playing of VOX audio files from within a VB application.   

Since these particular VOX files have a non-typical sample rate I need to use a more flexible audio player like Goldwave instead of something simplistic like ToolVOX.

Also I do not think that converting the VOX files to another audio format (e.g. WAV, etc.) would be within acceptable user time tolerances, so I would like to, if possible, stay within the VOX format.

My Keyword Search of this forum and my Google search for:
   Goldwave VB
did not turn up anything.

If anyone has experience interfacing Goldwave with a VB application   or   if you have any other alternative approaches to recommend, I would appreciate your suggestions and/or advice.

Thank you,

Most Efficient Audio Play
I am currently writing an mp3 player that can also play cd's. I first made it to play mp3's using ActiveMovie reference, but it would not play cd's. So, I decided to have a select case statement to see if the file was mp3 or cd, and if it was mp3, use ActiveMovie, and if it's cd audio, use microsoft multimedia control (mmcontrol1). The only problem is mmcontrol doesn't allow the user to skip to a certion part of the song. Then I decided to use Microsoft Media Player but I thought that if I made a program sing Media Player then it's just Windows Media Player in a difference skin, and I'd like to feel that I have coded something.

Are there any code and examples that can play mp3 and cd audio, or any controls that I could buy (if I can buy it at least I feel I earned it lol).

Thanks in advance

Play Audio Data
In memory, I have a data vector (Integers) that represents some sound. It does not have all of the pedigree of a wave file, but it does have all of the information.

I can re-sample it to 44 kHz if that is necessary. I'd like to pump this signal through a sound player but am not sure how to do that.

If I have to create a wave file, then load it and and play it, I guess that would work but it seems silly. Anyone got any direct way to stream an array of data into a sound player?

I Need To Play Some Small Audio Clips, Not Sure What Format To Use?
I would like to use something other than Wav, but I also don't want to use something very complicated. Is there a format that is more efficient than wav and easy to implement? Should I just stick with Wav? Should I try to use Mp3? What would you recommend?

Thanks in advance,

Opening An IRC Channel
is there VB 6.0 code similar to this VB 2005 express code:

VB Code:
Process.Start("iexplore", URL)

The URL is actually a URL for an IRC channel, so that code opened up mIRC directly and instantly to the correct server and channel.

With VB 6.0 I've been using this code:

VB Code:
Set s = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.application")    s.Visible = True    s.Navigate URL

This takes a lot longer than the VB 2005 code because it opens up my default browser first and then opens mIRC. Is there a way to get the instantanious opening to mIRC that I got with VB 2005 with VB 6.0?

Alpha Channel Icons

I know there has been posts about this before, but i have serahced, and they all go off topic and don't give consice answers; People start thinking that it's size there talking about and not colour depth then the story starts to lose track, etc etc.


Simply what i am looking to know is:

Can you import XP style Icons into your application. Just like you can import 256 colour icons with transparency onto your form as a picture for example. But VB6 doesnt handle the alpha channel. Is there anyway to get around this? I know that if it is a form icon for example, you can use a ico file with multiple formats, which i have imported successfully due to VB using the lower qualitys icons in design time, but when running the app in XP, it uses the correct icons. But this is an icon to go on a form; It will only have on format as such (i.e. It will be a single 32x32 size icon in an ico file). May be be to do with tricking the program into it? or is there any other method.

I hope there is SOMEWAY of doing it, because XP Icons in 256 without the alpha channel look horrible and jaggy.

If anyone can help it would be great.

Thx in advance.

IRC Join Channel Problem
I haven't done very extensive programming with IRC but i've gotten through connecting and all that stuff, and i've got a basic communication going with an irc server, however heh..... whenever i attempt to join a channel my program crashes, everytime. I was just wondering if anyone knew why this would happen,

all my program does basically is receve a string from the server and add it to a text box. I was thinking it might have something to do with the characters that are being sent and then moved into there, I'm not sure.if anyone has some tips or advice i would appretate it alot thanks.

DirectDraw7 Alpha Channel
I was doing some looking around about Direct Draw 7 and Alpha Channels. From what I read is that you cant do alpha channeling in DD7 without either making your own draw procedure that reads the raw data, or use an outside library like vbDabl.dll. I was looking through some files I downloaded awhile ago when I was learning DD7, one popped out at me. It was a program that created alpha channel bitmaps by taking two images, one for the color and another for the alpha channels. Then it saved as an .abmp file. I was just thinking to myself "why would someone need to make surfaces with an alpha channel if you cant even use then in DD7?" I guess this is a question for the DX gurus in the forum. Is it possible somehow to use this to make an easy to use alpha channel draw procedure. It seem like I can modify the method this example used to save .abmp files to just load the image into a surface with 32bit pixel format. Then I would have to find a way to blit the new surface with its alpha channel. My guess would be that everything I read so far is correct. But I think it would be kinda cool if there were an easier way to draw alpha channel bitmaps.

Sound Channel Problem
I'm trying to find a solution to my sound channel mapping problem. I need to play the sound from one channel on both speakers. For example, play left channel audio on both left and right audio channels.

I have been looking for a solution to this but so far no good.

Please help, thank you.
