DevIL equivalent for loading sound files?

Recommended Posts

I''ve been thinking, wouldn''t it be great if there''s a library similar to DevIL (loading image files) to handle loading of sound files? DevIL simplifies the chores of loading PNG,JPG,BMP..etc into RGB values. So this "OpenSL" (sound library) would handle loading MP3,OGG,MOD,AU,WAV...etc into PCM values. This would complement very nicely with OpenAL, which needs external handling of file formats besides PCM wav. Does anyone know of such library? Is anyone working on it?

I think you misunderstand my question. I am already using
OpenAL. The problem is that I need a loader for each type
of audio file format. Just like loading image files (PCX,
JPG, BMP, PNG...etc), I need to load MP3, OGG, AU, WAV...etc
and feed OpenAL the raw PCM wave...

So something like DevIL, which can load many types of
images, would be nice. But for sound files.

well do you already have the codes for each seperate?
else you can be the one making the first multi loader!

sometimes it''s good to "lay the first hand" on something

well i guess if there is nothing to find you can at least take away others their time spending on it by releasing it public ( i am not trying to hint cause i still am a weenie opengl programmer on some parts so i need to work on that more before going on :-))
