Creates a sample stream from a FLAC file via user callback functions.

HSTREAM BASS_FLAC_StreamCreateFileUser(
    DWORD system,

    BASS_FILEPROCS *procs,
    void *user


systemFile system to use, one of the following.
STREAMFILE_BUFFERPUSHBuffered, with the data pushed to BASS via BASS_StreamPutFileData.
flagsA combination of these flags.
BASS_SAMPLE_FLOATUse 32-bit floating-point sample data. See Floating-point channels for info.
BASS_SAMPLE_SOFTWAREForce the stream to not use hardware mixing.
BASS_SAMPLE_3DEnable 3D functionality. This requires that the BASS_DEVICE_3D flag was specified when calling BASS_Init, and the stream must be mono. The SPEAKER flags can not be used together with this flag.
BASS_SAMPLE_LOOPLoop the file. This flag can be toggled at any time using BASS_ChannelFlags.
BASS_SAMPLE_FXEnable the old implementation of DirectX 8 effects. See the DX8 effect implementations section for details. Use BASS_ChannelSetFX to add effects to the stream.
BASS_STREAM_RESTRATERestrict the "download" rate of the file to the rate required to sustain playback. If this flag is not used, then the file will be downloaded as quickly as possible. This flag only has effect when using the STREAMFILE_BUFFER system.
BASS_STREAM_BLOCKDownload and play the file in smaller chunks. Uses a lot less memory than otherwise, but it's not possible to seek or loop the stream; once it's ended, the file must be opened again to play it again. This flag will automatically be applied when the file length is unknown. This flag also has the effect of restricting the download rate. This flag has no effect when using the STREAMFILE_NOBUFFER system.
BASS_STREAM_AUTOFREEAutomatically free the stream when playback ends.
BASS_STREAM_DECODEDecode the sample data, without playing it. Use BASS_ChannelGetData to retrieve decoded sample data. The BASS_SAMPLE_3D, BASS_STREAM_AUTOFREE and SPEAKER flags can not be used together with this flag. The BASS_SAMPLE_SOFTWARE and BASS_SAMPLE_FX flags are also ignored.
BASS_SPEAKER_xxxSpeaker assignment flags. These flags have no effect when the stream is more than stereo.
BASS_ASYNCFILERead the file asynchronously. When enabled, the file is read and buffered in parallel with the decoding, to reduce the chances of the decoder being affected by I/O delays. This can be particularly useful with slow storage media and/or low latency output. The size of the file buffer is determined by the BASS_CONFIG_ASYNCFILE_BUFFER config option. This flag only applies when using the STREAMFILE_NOBUFFER system.
procsThe user defined file functions.
userUser instance data to pass to the callback functions.

Return value

If successful, the new stream's handle is returned, else 0 is returned. Use BASS_ErrorGetCode to get the error code.

Error codes

BASS_ERROR_INITBASS_Init has not been successfully called.
BASS_ERROR_NOTAVAILOnly decoding channels (BASS_STREAM_DECODE) are allowed when using the "no sound" device. The BASS_STREAM_AUTOFREE flag is also unavailable to decoding channels.
BASS_ERROR_ILLPARAMsystem is not valid.
BASS_ERROR_FILEFORMThe file's format is not recognised/supported.
BASS_ERROR_FORMATThe sample format is not supported by the device/drivers. If the stream is more than stereo or the BASS_SAMPLE_FLOAT flag is used, it could be that they are not supported.
BASS_ERROR_SPEAKERThe specified SPEAKER flags are invalid. The device/drivers do not support them, they are attempting to assign a stereo stream to a mono speaker or 3D functionality is enabled.
BASS_ERROR_MEMThere is insufficent memory.
BASS_ERROR_NO3DCould not initialize 3D support.
BASS_ERROR_UNKNOWNSome other mystery problem!


Away from Windows, all mixing is done in software (by BASS), so the BASS_SAMPLE_SOFTWARE flag is unnecessary. The BASS_SAMPLE_FX flag is also ignored.
