    Do you mean a progress bar or a display of the sound volume/intensity?

    AFAIK you can't with playsound. Need finer control or more info from the OS. From Winmm.lib and Mmsystem.h.

    Look at using WM_WOM_ messages and a timer for a progressbar.

    waveOutPrepareHeader()
    waveOutWrite()
    SetTimer()
    waveOutUnprepareHeader()
    waveOutClose()
    waveOutGetPosition()

    will help.

    a few years ago i used the fmod libraries to play music. It was free then as long as you are not going to profit from it.

    FMod MP3 Libraries

    I was able to play mp3's or wavs but you have to pay if you intend to profit.
