SDL Digest, Vol 26, Issue 4


I am able to reproduce the bug as well. I use WinXP and the latest of all
the SDL libs. mp3 and wav files work fine but ogg files do not (they used
to under 1.2.9 for my code).

It’s just a wild guess but this could be related to the dynamic DLL
loading feature added to 1.2.7 which means that it will try and load
ogg.dll, vorbis.dll and vorbisfile.dll on first use. I would build
your own version, with debug symbols, and see exactly where it

I’ll do that as soon as I’m back home on my own computer (in about a
time). In the meantime, I’d be interested if anyone else has the same
loading OGG files using the prebuilt DLLs. On the derelict forums,
people were able to reproduce the bug, so if the prebuilt libraries are
broken, I think this qualifies as an SDL bug.

Thanks for your help!
