Mp3 sound looping problems

Clint Sutton 6 years ago updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 2

I brought this problem up back in the old forum a few months ago, and was wandering if you guys have found a solution to this?


Basically, when you try and loop an mp3 sound, to continuously play over again and again (like the sound of a cars engine running), you get a gap at the beginning of each time it replays, so you get an inconsistent loop. 


I searched the net for this problem, and apparently it will always be like this with mp3's as they all have a small gap at the beginning.


Now because Interactbuilder uses mp3's only, I am hoping you guys can come up with a solution?  Please take a look into this issue, as my app has allot of these looping sounds in it.

We will be addressing this in version 3.5 towards the end of the year or early next year.


Clint you can use free software to cut the gap from the mp3. One of those free software is Audacity and you can download it for free here:

Hi Alin,


Thanks for replying.


I have Audacity, and 3 other sound programs, and no matter how many times you edit and delete the small gap in front it doesn't help.  Every time you save it as an mp3 it adds the gap again!  Like I said, this is just the way an mp3 is saved, you cannot change the mp3 file to not have that gap in the front!

Here is something I think you guys should read!  http://www.compuphase.com/mp3/mp3loops.htm     This is a common issue, and they give some ways to fix this, but, for most of us who are using your software to build our apps, we do not want to have to go through this complicated process every time with new sound clip!


Maybe it's possible to impliment a way for your builder to shut down the delay when playing the sound, like Winamp or Mediaplayer does?
