    Visualization docs and pointers

    Hello there!!

    I am currently learning C++ and am still fiddling with the Command Prompt in Windows.

    I want to emulate the Visualization stuff like that in win media player,but only this time in the console.

    I have no idea how to do it and hoped someone to direct me
    to a webpage where it is discussed.

    You mean those colorful visual effects?

    If so you need to work with a graphics library. Check Allegro, I guess. I'm not much into graphics. This is as far as I can go.

    Hmmmm.....

    It is not what i wanted.......i just want some information on how they did those visual effects which depend on the music(maybe the Beat or something).

    You know when you play a sound file in windows media player
    ,those funky lines jump with the music.

    those docs am i looking for.

    that is a very difficult thing to do. you will need to use a graphics library like allegro to actually do the drawing, but you will also need to be able to decipher wav files. This program will also need to get the wave file from somewhere (I would think it would need to interact with the sound card, either from its output buffer or from a file, then sending the data to the card). Search for digital signal processing; that should give you somewhere to start. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    a bit before moving on : )

    I am still quite a n00b in this ......

    Hmm, you cannot display graphics in a console window, unless u want ASCII graphics
