I'm working on an MP3 player for Visual Studio:C++, and I've already realized this is wayyy more than I thought it'd be.
I'm at a standstill right now with 2 things, any help would be greatly appreciated:
1) Playing back an MP3 file. I'm building this thing from scratch, and I don't know if theres a common windows component that can do this. I can get the file name from a textbox, so now i just need to get over that hump of actually playing back the file.
2) Exploring folders for the file to play (granted I take out the textbox with the actual path). I got nothing here either.
As you can probably tell, Im pretty new to Visual Studio's take on C++. I've been using Dev-C but as far as GUI goes, Visual Studio made it alot easier, I didn't think the programming would be that bad. Once again, its a monster I never looked at until I got there.
I've been doing Google Searches and looking in MSDN for the past 5 days, so hopefully someone can help me. Once again, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks guys.
