Problems with Sound Effects

Apr 27, 2010 at 1:02 PM

I'm having a repeating issue with sound effects and I'm not exactly sure WHAT will to fix the problem.

Sometimes when I play a sound effect, the sound only beings half-way through the sound file. If I play it again, then it completely plays from start to finish.

This behavior repeats itself for almost all sound effects, ESPECIALLY in the first 30 seconds of the game.

I gave my application to another person to try it out, and he said the sound effects just stopped playing completely after a while.

Is there a possible way that the sound buffers are running out of memory or they need to be reset?

It would be great it ANYONE has some updates for the Media, Song, and SoundEffect classes!

Thanks in advance!

Yeah there are some things in Silverlight that make sound effects tricky, can you try the new WAV support that's checked in to the source tree and see if that's any better for you?
