Audio playback monitoring with native SDK 2.1

[ Edited ]


I have an application where I want to play an mp3 (or other formats) and want to be able to exactly track it's position.

Currently I use the multimedia renderer with mmr_*** functions but I am unable to find any function to get information about the current state of playback.

The only information I found online was about mm/renderer/events.h but this does not seem to be included in SDK 2.1.

But because I want to develop for BB Tablet OS I need to use SDK version 2.1 and I just can't find any way to achieve what I want.

After endless search I hope anyone here can help me on my problem or tell me where I went wrong

Re: Audio playback monitoring with native SDK 2.1

Ok I finally found out that there was a change in the name of the header file that includes the methods for events.


It seems it changed from <bps/mmrenderer.h> in SDK 2.1 to <mm/renderer/events.h> in SDK 10.0.


Thanks anyway - closed
