Directsound mp3

Recommended Posts

is it possible to play mp3 with direct sound? or do i need to decompress it first manually. reason being is that from my understanding, only directsound can retrieve pcm data. (for an oscilloscope)

DirectSound can only cope with raw PCM data, yes. You'll have to decompress MP3 data before passing it to DirectSound.
