Music and Sound Filesizes

Post by Fruchthieb » Tue Sep 29, 2009 6:00 pm

Hey all,

If i am right, the size of audiofiles are limitated to ca. 1 MB; i couldnt load a bigger (audio-)file. Is there a possibility to deristrict this limitation?

otherwise it would be a nice feature for next release..

greets, Fruchthieb

Are you sure? I was able to load > 1MB .ogg files via both newSound and newMusic; I'm not sure about .wav and .mp3.

One thing I have noticed is that sometimes the audio player chokes on .mp3's (by just refusing to load the file), but converting to .ogg via Audacity solves the problem. I'm too lazy to figure out why it chokes, though.

Fruchthieb, are you referring to 0.5.0 or 0.6.0?

I believe that a quick workaround would be split the file
is that possible ?
Nothing is simple but everything is possible.
