    OpenAL

    I posted this on the Game Programming board over a week ago...but never got any answer...thought I might re-ask it here...

    Has anybody here ever used OpenAL? (Open Audio Library, www.openal.org)

    I went to their site...but it confused me...I didnt know what to download or anything....and I couldnt really find any tutorials...

    How compatible is it with SDL, and how multiplatform is it? I know it supposedly has the ability to play MP3s...and that is what I want...and it is also supposedly multiplatform just like OpenGL, and I also want that. I want to use it in my SDL programs.

    Anybody ever used OpenAL before?

    a little, not enough to help with anything.

    >and I couldnt really find any tutorials...

    there are virtually none

    > How compatible is it with SDL,

    i don't know, doesn't/didn't SDL already use it?

    >and how multiplatform is it?

    linux,windows,mac's ect...

    i don't know about it playing mp3's but it might...

    unfortunatly, loki has losed and developement on OpenAL has not been updated in over a year... so it future is in question.

    if it isn't continued by somebody in a year or so then look into OpenML which isn't out yet and won't be for a year or so yet, but it will be capable of cross platform mp3 audio. the futures foggy till then.
