anyone know offhand the size of a wav file header? having trouble playing them in nasm because i dont know how much to ignore. any help = appreciated
//is retarded for wrongposting in his own forum
found the info too - 44 bytes
The following link gives details on what the different header bytes mean such as speed, file length, # of channels, etc.:
can you tell what nasm is??
learning the language for a class
used it to program a version of duckhunt. i need to have sound working on this bad boy in about 6 hours. and have this paper done. and lunch too.
thx for the link sean, but sadly, i just wanted to know where to start streaming the audio data to the dsp. i already knew all the info i needed about the file
and damian, if you are really interested, there is also tasm / masm - which all manage to accomplish about the same thing. however, if you wish to discuss / learn anything about them, you’ll proly have to post in the gen software forum, as its not exactly an audio question
thank you ckin…lol.,…thought it was an audio player…grin
learned something new today…hehe
i wil look in the software forum for more info
WAV file headers do not necessarily have a fixed size
i was hoping it was the standard one with 44 bytes, and not the wave fmt unknown - which i only read about in passing
such a bastardized format, wav is.
