Its main characteristics are :

  • Abstract Layer to include different "drivers"
    • Alsa, /dev/dsp, AOLive, OSS support within linux
    • DirectX, Wavemapper support within Windows
    • Audio playback and capture

Building and Running the Demos

If you don't want themese, as of 5/30/2009 using SVN revision 816, it may be necessary to do a few very simple and very quick changes to get the player demo to build on Windows.

Find the line "{$IFDEF WINDOWS}{$R manifest.rc}{$ENDIF}" in player.lpr and delete it. You may also have to go to Project->Project options and untick "Use manifest file to enable themes".

windres.exe was complaining because I had no resources and no desire to create themes for the application, so the above steps will disable theming and allow it compile happily.
