VC++ and libmad/madplay

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Hi all
    Did anyone port libmad/madplay to VC++ 6.0?
    I try to do it now but have some troubles...

      Did you succeed in compiling MAD using MS-VC++ ?
      Could you post the .dsp file ?

      Thanks !

        You will find a .dsp file in the msvc++ directory of the distribution.

      Did you manage to solve the problem?
      When you use the DSP file from the distribution, MSVC will ask to upgrade, this shouldn't be a problem, microsoft tends to change their IDE with every release.
      when building keep the follwing things in mind:
      - the DSP of each package is only for that package.
      - I had to adapt the mad package to include library paths and libraries.
      - I had to also get the Zlib package from the extra directory found via the FTP link.

      Everytthing built fine with visualstudio 2005.

      I built libmad/madplay/libid3tag on VC2005 (express edition).
      I want to run the test streams provided by ISO for compliance testing. I can find the streams at\(E)

      I am facing few problems in executing these streams on windows platform.

      1. I am keeping these streams in the folder where the application (madplay.exe) is generated.
      2. From that location I run madplay.exe input-stream output-stream.

      3. This decodes the input stream (.bit file) fine but it says 0 frames decoded for output stream without generating output stream. I am confused on whether I am doing the right thing or not at this point.

      My doubts:

      1. Are these above steps correct?

      2. Do I really need to use libid3tag package to build for an application to test the compliance of the streams provided ISO/IEC?

      3. Am i doing the right thing at step3 above? Am i using the right command to decode the stream?

      4. Basically I want to generate an output stream (i.e decompressed stream for a fixed input stream) and then want to compare this generated stream with the standard output stream provided by ISO/IEC. I guess this confirms the compliance.

      Any body who knows how to solve this problem, please let me know so that I can progress with my work.

      I started working in codec domain very recently and do not know full details of the technicalities involved in this domain.

      Any help is highly appreciated.

      Thanking you in advance.
