Startmarkers In Wma Files


Recommended Posts

I have rendered a very long wma file with Samplitude 8.31. I would like web listeners to be able to start at various points in the file from which it will then play to the end -- sort of like picking tracks on a CD.

Windows uses two options to create this possibility: startpoints and startmarkers. Startpoints aren't very useful because the Windows Media Player has to stream the whole file up to where you want to begin before it will start playing. I would thus like to try startmarkers with the hope that the file will begin playing back from that point without having to first stream everything in the file that came before it. Does anyone know how to insert startmarkers in a wma file, and how to code the metafile (.asx.) to then begin playback at a startmarker?
