    SFML Audio Problems...

    Hi all,

    My program, audioTest, is intended as a practise so that I can see how ths feature works!

    However, I'm being plagued by errors!

    My code, shown below, should be all I need to play an mp3 file; nothing more!

    #include "SFML/Audio.hpp"
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    	sf::Music Music1( 44100 );									// create Music instance
    	if ( !Music1.OpenFromFile( "Kalimba.mp3" ) )				// if the file doesn't open
    		cout << "\n\nMusic file can't be opened!\n\n" << endl;	// display error message
    	Music1.Play();												// play music
    	system( "pause" );											// pause to stop console window closing
    } // end main
    I'm getting errors in the console window saying, "Failed to open "Kalimba.mp3" for reading"

    Music file can't be opened!

    Failed to play audio stream : sound parameters have not been initialized (call Initialize first)
    press any key to continue...

    Please help if you have any ideas of how to rectify this error!

    That is because SFML doesn't support mp3. It is a license encumbered format ( aka, SFML would have to pay money to support it ), so they didn't.

    Either find an .ogg file, or convert your mp3 to .ogg ( Ogg Vorbis ) format.
