I grabbed the distributions pointed to and did not find any VisualC.zip or
DSP files for the SDL_mixer package. The SDL_image one looked OK.

I have to admit… I am pretty confused about what audio functionality is
provided by the “basic” SDL package and what SDL_mixer is adding in. I am
imagining that SDL_mixer simply adds more audio formats in some way. Is that
a correct assessment?> -----Original Message-----

Heh, sorry. That’s added, along with some interesting patches from Markus:

In some way.
The basic SDL audio package provides you with a callback that is passed
a buffer that you can fill with audio data that is sent to the sound card.

The SDL mixer library works at a higher level in “sounds” and “channels”
and “music”. You can load a sound and play it, load music and play it,
change volume of logical audio streams, etc.

It’s like the difference between a canvas and a painting. :slight_smile:

See ya!
