al_init_acodec_addon — Allegro 5 API

Synopsis

#include <allegro5/allegro_acodec.h>

bool al_init_acodec_addon(void)

Description

This function registers all the known audio file type handlers for al_load_sample(3), al_save_sample(3), al_load_audio_stream(3), etc.

Depending on what libraries are available, the full set of recognised extensions is: .wav, .flac, .ogg, .it, .mod, .s3m, .xm, .voc.

Limitations:

·
Saving is only supported for wav files.
·
The wav file loader currently only supports 8/16 bit little endian PCM files. 16 bits are used when saving wav files. Use flac files if more precision is required.
·
Module files (.it, .mod, .s3m, .xm) are often composed with streaming in mind, and sometimes cannot be easily rendered into a finite length sample. Therefore they cannot be loaded with al_load_sample(3)/al_load_sample_f(3) and must be streamed with al_load_audio_stream(3) or al_load_audio_stream_f(3).
·
.voc file streaming is unimplemented.

Return true on success.
