MP3 Playback on AROS

Post by Allanon »

Hello,
I'm not able to reproduce any MP3 music on AROS, I've tried several musics, all working on OS4 and on AROS using mplayer but using this simple code Hollywood tell me that the sound format is unknown:

Code: Select all

OpenMusic(1, "Ram:test.mp3")
PlayMusic(1)

Repeat
   WaitEvent
Forever
Ofcourse I've an mp3 named "test.mp3" in ram disk

Please help, that's a very important feature...

Sorry, no AROS available here right now. :-( Unfortunately I have no time for dealing with that right now ... :-( If you could wait 2 more weeks I can and will give it a try.

But I hope, someone else could help you earlier. :-)

Greetings!

MP3s are currently not supported on AROS due to licensing issues (the mpega.library of AROS contains code that is under the GPL and thus must not be used by a commercial program like Hollywood). Please use mplayer on AROS instead.
