StopMedia "Sound" doesn't work for an .mp3 file

Postby JBoyd333 » Mon Mar 31, 2008 12:37 pm

I am using the command:

PlaySoundFile "[PubDir]\[Sound_File].wav" "Normal"

to play a .wav file, and the command:

StopMedia "Sound"

to stop playing it (this is supposed to stop all currently playing media files).

However, when I play an .mp3 file, using:

PlaySoundFile "[PubDir]\[Sound_File].mp3" "Normal"

it won't respond to the StopMedia "Sound" command, but plays all the way to the end without stopping.

I can stop the .mp3 file by giving it the name of the file:

StopMedia "[PubDir]\[Sound_File].mp3"

command, but I'd rather use the generic "Sound" command if possible so I don't have to keep track of all the file names that are playing.

Does anyone know how to stop an .mp3 sound file some other way? I would really like to use the smaller .mp3 files instead of the .wav ones to save space!

StopMedia ""

to stop All media, as explained in the action box.
