Synopsis

#include "SDL.h"

int SDL_CDPlayTracks(SDL_CD *cdrom, int start_track, int start_frame, int ntracks, int nframes));

Description

SDL_CDPlayTracks plays the given CD starting at track start_track, for ntracks tracks.

start_frame is the frame offset, from the beginning of the start_track, at which to start. nframes is the frame offset, from the beginning of the last track (start_track+ntracks), at which to end playing.

SDL_CDPlayTracks should only be called after calling SDL_CDStatus to get track information about the CD.

Note:

Data tracks are ignored.

/* Play the entire CD */
if(CD_INDRIVE(SDL_CDStatus(cdrom)))
  SDL_CDPlayTracks(cdrom, 0, 0, 0, 0);

if(CD_INDRIVE(SDL_CDStatus(cdrom)))
  SDL_CDPlayTracks(cdrom, 0, 0, 1, 0);

/* Play first 15 seconds of the 2nd track */
