Interfacing with Media Player

  Nigel-331402 13:18 15 Apr 04

When playing a track with Media player you can have the waveform or bar graph displayed.

Is there an API type call I can use from a VB program that lets me get at the dat used to create these whilst the track is playing by Media player.

What I want to be able to do is take this data, process it, and send it to a bank of lights so that they flash in time to the music (like a sound to light system). The electronics side of things I've got sorted, it's getting the data in the first place I'm after.

I've been asked to do the music.lighting at a wedding reception so I'm looking to do something 'flash'.

Are you referring to the vast choice of visualisations offered with/for WMP whose displays vary with the music?

That'll be the ones.

I'm not looking to write my own visulisation (yet) but I want to get to that data, in real time, from outside of the Media player (if possible).
