Background music won't play

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Post » Fri May 15, 2015 6:54 pm

Problem Description
I put an audio object in the layout and a music file in to the music folder
In the event sheet, I insert the following event:

System >> On start of Layout : Audio >> Play Background looping at volume 0 db (tag "Music")

and run the layout, I get a white screen with no music playing. :roll:

My master volume is 100% on my computer, but when I go into the volume mixer, it tells me that nothing's playing.

Attach a Capx

All it does is when the layout starts, play the music file.

Observed Result
Absolutely nothing.

Start playing the music that I uploaded.

@Roal465 The music format is Ogg Vorbis. Were you able to download the .capx?

@anubis666 If @Roal465 was able to download it, I don't know why you aren't. :?:

Also, I tried making a text object (Text: "Music 'Background' is playing") and telling it (through events) that if anything is playing, make it visible. (It's Initial Visibility was set to Invisible.)

When I ran it, the text showed up immediately. :?

Have you m4a format in your project? Or you have only files in OGG format?

Closing, the link to the .capx is not working, and it is required for bug reports.

It's not marked public. You can download it because you're logged into your account I'm guessing. And Roal didn't say they downloaded it, they say they use wav files and don't have any problems.
