Accepted Solution

Loop mp3

To loop a mp3 (background music for a game), do I have to detect the end of the mp3 and restart it, or is there a simpler way?

Re: Loop mp3

One solution would be to do what Beligerent Blocks does which is save the background audio as wav file and then use the sound.c/h file from beligerent blocks to loop it continuously.

Re: Loop mp3

Thanks for the response. A wav would take too much space. I ended simply detecting the end of the mp3 and starting the playback again.
