    music cd counter.

    i am trying to have a program do certain operations timed to a music cd. what i need to know is if there is counter or other way of tracking what part of a song is playing and if so how do you access it.

    thank you for any help.

    Are you writing your own music player or are using the third party music player to get the information. If it was latter, use API which give you access to that application ans try get more information from there.

    AFAIK, music is generally synchronized to the video which has it's own encoded timing. Since it has nothing to do with C, I believe you'll be far better served checking out music forums and newsgroups.

    Have you tried googling for "music encoding", and phrases like that? Might point to just the answers you're looking for.

    C'mon back when you are ready to have your C code questions answered, though. We'll leave a light on for ya.
