With AS3 we can do this to load an MP3 and play it:
var sound:Sound = new Sound( new URLRequest("sound.mp3") );
That is very easy, but what if I already have the entire ByteArray of that MP3 loaded and I want to simply play it?
Why cant AS3 have a simple method to simply pass the ByteArray working exactly like it works now passing a URLRequest?
In my case I need this because I am loading a ZIP file containing a bunch of MP3s and when I uncompress it I can read the bytearray of each MP3 but I can't play them.
Have you tried loadCompressedDataFromByteArray in the Sound class?
Assuming you have the ByteArray already instantiated, try:
var sound:Sound = new Sound();
sound.loadCompressedDataFromByteArray ( mp3Bytes, mp3Bytes.length );
Awesome. thanks I was not aware of this new method.
If I have only partial ByteArray of data for that Mp3 file and I am dynamically fetching the data in chunks, how do I load it to loadCompressedDataFromByteArray? I was able to play the first chunk, but one I ahve the new data not sure how to add to Sound object to play continuously?
