Using the following code to play wavs.

Is there any way I can get it to loop until it has stopped playing?

Thanks in advance

Paul.

public static void PlayAudio(int audioNo)
{

if ( audioNo > NA )
try {
InputStream in = new FileInputStream("C:/DTaudio/" + AUDIO[audioNo] + ".wav");
AudioStream as = new AudioStream(in);
AudioPlayer.player.start(as);
} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
System.err.println("FileNotFoundException: " + e.getMessage());
} catch (IOException e) {
System.err.println("Caught IOException: " + e.getMessage());
}
}

Try something like:



in your player.start() method where you read from the file.

What type of variable should 'something' be? (getting error cannot find symbol);

Regards

Paul.

That would be the variable to hold the data you read from the file.

Sorry Petrus I'm an idiot.

How would it work in the following example?

I've tried
while (inStream = aStream.read() != null) {};
but as as.read() seems to return an integer they do not seem compatible.

InputStream inStream = new FileInputStream("C:/DTaudio/" + AUDIO[audioNo] + ".wav");
AudioStream aStream = new AudioStream(inStream);
AudioPlayer.player.start(aStream);

Could you post the part of the AudioPlayer.player.start(aStream) method that reads from the stream.

Hi Petrus

AudioStream is apparently an undocumented function in sun.audio.*

The code in my first post is my current sound code in its entirity.

Sorry, I assumed it would function like a normal stream. Maybe if you could find the source for the player class it would help in understanding how the start() method reads from the stream.

Take a look at How to play audio in applications

I'm sure some googling should help you find some tutorials.
