Re^2: Module SDL::Music not playing MP3s on Windows

in thread Module SDL::Music not playing MP3s on Windows

It doesn't throw any error. It just silently executes the play_music line and goes on its way. BTW, what is SMPEG, what does it do, and where/how do I obtain and install it?

Thanks, roho

    Just google for 'SMPEG', it is a library for SDL which plays mp3's. I have no idea about getting it to run on windows.

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum
      Thanks for the suggestion zentara, but all I found on Google for 'SMPEG' for windows was an smpeg.dll, which didn't help matters at all. I have not given up, though, and my search for an answer continues.

      "Its not how hard you work, its how much you get done."

        According to http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppmdir.html the PPM package was "compiled with SDL-1.2.9, SDL_image-1.2.4, SDL_gfx-2.0.13, SDL_mixer-1.2.6, SDL_net-1.2.5, SDL_ttf-2.0.7". There's no mention of smpeg there - so I'm wondering whether that particular build of SDL_Perl supports mp3 at all.

        You could check with the guy who built the package. There's a contact email address at the bottom of the bribes web page.

        Cheers,
        Rob
