I have a desktop Director application that acts as a search
engine for audio libraries. It allows a user to listen to audio
files of different formats (AIFF,MP3,WAV). I am using the internal
sound object in Director to play these files. Everything worked
fine until last month when the client decided to re-encode their
entire AIFF library to use Big Endian encoding. Now the Director
app cannot play those files.
I can make the application play them if I use a Quicktime
object. However this would require that the machine have quicktime
installed. It is not an issue on a Mac but on a PC it is because I
don't want to force an installation of another application to make
My question is, are there any xtras out there that can play
high fidelity audio and work both on mac and pc platforms?
