I had problems using managed directsound, when I added reference to Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound I can play sound without problems, but there is problem capturing sound. The example in C# works fine but when I do the same in C++ there is a System.Exception: Message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." Source "Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound" StackTrace " at Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound.Notify..ctor(CaptureBuffer lp) at CaptureVoice.InitNotifications() in c:\my documents\visual studio projects\capturevoice.cpp:line 84" I'm using MS Visual studio .Net 2003 and DirectX SDK December 2005 and the code is like this: applicationDevice = new Capture(); // Caps is set InputFormat = WaveFormat(); InputFormat.FormatTag = WaveFormatTag::Pcm; InputFormat.BitsPerSample = 8; InputFormat.SamplesPerSecond = 8000; InputFormat.Channels = 1; InputFormat.BlockAlign = (short)(InputFormat.Channels * (InputFormat.BitsPerSample / 8)); InputFormat.AverageBytesPerSecond = InputFormat.BlockAlign * InputFormat.SamplesPerSecond; NotifySize = (1024 > InputFormat.AverageBytesPerSecond / 8) ? 1024 : (InputFormat.AverageBytesPerSecond / 8); NotifySize -= NotifySize % InputFormat.BlockAlign; CaptureBufferSize = NotifySize * NumberRecordNotifications; CaptureBufferDescription dscheckboxd = CaptureBufferDescription(); dscheckboxd.BufferBytes = CaptureBufferSize; dscheckboxd.Format = InputFormat; applicationBuffer = new CaptureBuffer(&dscheckboxd, applicationDevice); // Caps is NOT set NotifyThread = new Thread(new ThreadStart(this,&CaptureVoice::WaitThread)); NotifyThread->Start(); NotificationEvent = new AutoResetEvent(false); applicationNotify = new Notify(applicationBuffer); // this throws exception Can someone help me please, maybe it's some stupid slip but I can't see it. I also have another question, is it possible to use some codecs with managed directsound? thanx
