Timer and multimedia-timer interval ?
« on: 2 Apr '03 - 10:58 »
Hello Bass eaters. 8)
I use lots of timers with bass.

What is the reasonable minimum interval for timers (and multimedia-timers) that i have to use for :

1- Getdata() (without playing = Stream Decode).
2- Getposition() (while normal playing).

NB: With Delphi i can use only 1 multimedia-timer at a time...

For GetData, since what you probably want is a fast decode, make the timer 1ms..
And for playback, you dont want to update the display too often (or maybe you do?) anyways, for the GetPosition, use 1second. Thats how i see it, you might have a different opinion..
