I've got openAL and FFMPEG set up both with streaming and pre loading of audio data however I have a few issues with the streaming side which seems to set the openAL source to stop without implicitly calling the alSourceStop command.
The commands from FFMPEG that I know trigger it are av_q2d (no idea why this does it) and av_read_frame. I havent read in full detail the FFMPEG API but I have a feeling that av_read_frame may unload the any other streams currently loaded (though I hope im wrong on this) but this still doesnt really explain why it would cause any openAL sources to stop.
The other trigger to stopping the buffered openAL source is moving or scaling the window no idea why this is happening.
If anyone has any details on what could be triggering this it would be a great help otherwise going to try and dig deep into FFMPEG and OpenAL to see if I can find the problem.
