BASS_StreamCreateFile and length
« on: 19 Mar '03 - 14:52 »
i want trim the silence at the begin and end of a track, but the value for the length of the stream is not used.

BeginTrimValue := 50000;
EndTrimValue := 40000000;

FBassHandle := BASS_StreamCreateFile(FALSE, Filename, BeginTrimValue, EndTrimValue, BASS_SAMPLE_3D);

Is it possible to use the values offset and length?

Thank you,

Ian @ un4seen

The "offset" and "length" parameters are file positions, not playback positions.

If you know where the silence is, you can use BASS_ChannelSetPosition before starting playback to skip the silence at the start, and set a sync at the position where the end silence begins (and use BASS_ChannelStop in the callback to stop the stream) to skip the end silence.

If you don't know the position/length of the silence, this thread may help...
