Disk Streaming with other formats


#1

I know Juce has a very good AIF/WAV streaming class already. I was wondering if there is an FLAC streaming class somewhere. 

The reason being is that users like to keep their iOS apps relatively small when it comes to space and having an FLAC streaming class would help keep the sample based iOS apps small. 

 

Although, streaming is built into Mac and iOS, so I suppose we could use the same streaming algorithms for AIF, but just use a CAF lossless and the OS will determine it.

I think you're confusing memory-mapping with streaming. These are very different things!

All of the file readers can be used for streaming - that's exactly how they work. Maybe look at the BufferingAudioSource class.
