Constructor Detail

CodecWav

public CodecWav()
Constructor: Grabs a handle to the logger.

Method Detail

reverseByteOrder

public void reverseByteOrder(boolean b)
This method is ignored by CodecWav, because it produces "nice" data.

Specified by:
reverseByteOrder in interface ICodec
Parameters:
b - True if the calling audio library requires byte-reversal from certain codecs

initialize

public boolean initialize(java.net.URL url)
Prepares an audio stream to read from. If another stream is already opened, it will be closed and a new audio stream opened in its place.

Specified by:
initialize in interface ICodec
Parameters:
url - URL to an audio file to stream from.
Returns:
False if an error occurred or if end of stream was reached.

initialized

public boolean initialized()
Returns false if the stream is busy initializing.

Specified by:
initialized in interface ICodec
Returns:
True if steam is initialized.

read

public SoundBuffer read()
Reads in one stream buffer worth of audio data. See SoundSystemConfig for more information about accessing and changing default settings.

Specified by:
read in interface ICodec
Returns:
The audio data wrapped into a SoundBuffer context.

readAll

public SoundBuffer readAll()
Reads in all the audio data from the stream (up to the default "maximum file size". See SoundSystemConfig for more information about accessing and changing default settings.

Specified by:
readAll in interface ICodec
Returns:
the audio data wrapped into a SoundBuffer context.

endOfStream

public boolean endOfStream()
Returns false if there is still more data available to be read in.

Specified by:
endOfStream in interface ICodec
Returns:
True if end of stream was reached.

cleanup

public void cleanup()
Closes the audio stream and remove references to all instantiated objects.

Specified by:
cleanup in interface ICodec

getAudioFormat

public javax.sound.sampled.AudioFormat getAudioFormat()
Returns the audio format of the data being returned by the read() and readAll() methods.

Specified by:
getAudioFormat in interface ICodec
Returns:
Information wrapped into an AudioFormat context.
