Hi construct community.
Probably a simple question, this one... i have been trying to make a music playing application in an attempt to make a more purpose-built version of my customized foobar. Thus far, i have done nothing because i can't get XAudio2 to play music files.
I want to give the option to select a folder to load music from (maybe even several folders), but because i only seem to be allowed to use music in the AppPath, or add resources (~17.6GB of music?) i can't do this reasonably.
I would have thought it would be simple enough to just type the path of a directory to load all the music from (maybe with sub-directory support built in?) and play any of those songs from a list once loaded, but as it is, i can't even get it to play a song with that song's path name. This is typical microsoft, there always has to be a complicated way of doing something otherwise simple .
sorry if this has been said already, i have searched.
Thanks in advance for your help!
