I want to develop an application (a media player) where you
could choose and play video and music files (stored at the
computer). I want the user to be able to fast forward and rewind
these video or music files as she like. It is really important that
you could hear the actual sound go fast when a music file is going
fast forward or rewind.
Do you think that I could use Director to develop this media
player? Or do you know an other program I could use instead?
I've done it for videos.
Never really worked on it further, but it's a simple matter
to add music playing.
Just keep in mind that the user has to have the codec for the
video on their computer - Mpeg Advance Xtra solves some of that for
The fast playing is simple.
Just keep in mind that you need a basic grasp of the program
and Lingo coding.
You can also use Windows Media Player - it does eveything you
I've tried to make a Director application which uses
QuickTime player to play a video file. But when I push the fast
forward and rewind buttons, the video isn't going that very faster
and most of all: you can't hear the sound going fast or
backwards!!!! If I use the original QT player, you can hear it, but
not when it's inside of an Director application. Why is this? Can I
change it so I can hear the actual sound go fast or backwards???
(I can't use the QT player by it self since it seems that I
can't change the user interface of it as I want.)
