This is a port of the vgmstream library for the 3ds. vgmstream is a library for playing a wide variety of streamed audio formats used in video games. As of now this app has a textual interface, though I may plan a better interface and more playback features later.
see download link below.
- Copy the files in the archive to your sd card.
- Place any music files you want (see tested formats) in the music folder on the root of the sd card.
Press A to play the selected file.
Once it is playing press B to stop it and then you can choose a different file to play.
Press START to exit the app.
To see complete status for support of file types see this. If the file format is not listed there then vgmstream does not support it.
Note that while vgmstream itself does support a heck of a lot of file types (see above link) Tweaks to the library may have to be made to get it to play on the 3ds.
If you find a format that doesn't work (known list here) I would like for you to report it here
For now I would like to get all of the formats working. If you have a feature request you can add it here. I will address such feature requests in my own free time however (best effort).
Well I wrote this just for fun as an experiment cross compiling things for the 3ds. I was surprised when I finally got it working, after a few more headaches trying to get vgmstream to load a file off the sd card from the 3ds.
I'm also not really a sound programmer, but I did have previous experience updating the plugin for audacious (a cross platform music player similar to winamp) for vgmstream.
