SDL_BuildAudioCVT -- Initializes a SDL_AudioCVT structure for conversion


#include "SDL.h"

int SDL_BuildAudioCVT(SDL_AudioCVT *cvt, Uint16 src_format, Uint8 src_channels, int src_rate, Uint16 dst_format, Uint8 dst_channels, int dst_rate);


Before an SDL_AudioCVT structure can be used to convert audio data it must be initialized with source and destination information.

src_format and dst_format are the source and destination format of the conversion. (For information on audio formats see SDL_AudioSpec). src_channels and dst_channels are the number of channels in the source and destination formats. Finally, src_rate and dst_rate are the frequency or samples-per-second of the source and destination formats. Once again, see SDL_AudioSpec.

Currently (SDL-1.2.11) only rate conversions of 2x and (1/2)x with x > 0 are done, nearing the requested rate conversion.

Return Values

Returns 0 if the filter could not be built or a strictly positive number if it could.


See SDL_ConvertAudio.
