bool al_init_acodec_addon(void)


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.


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.
