Loading and playing audio causes access violation
« on: August 03, 2020, 14:49:36 »
I'm trying to create a simple sound demo for my game engine using OpenAL. I don't need any special 3D sound effects at the moment, I'm just trying to play a normal music mp3. This is the code I use to initialise OpenAL and load the sound file:
Code: [Select]
device = ALC11.alcOpenDevice((ByteBuffer)null);

if (device == 0)
return false;

capabilities = ALC.createCapabilities(device);

if (capabilities == null)
return false;

context = ALC11.alcCreateContext(device, (IntBuffer)null);
buffer = AL11.alGenBuffers();

int sampleRate;

try (MemoryStack stack = MemoryStack.stackPush())
IntBuffer channelsPtr = stack.mallocInt(1);
IntBuffer sampleRatePtr = stack.mallocInt(1);
PointerBuffer dataPtr = stack.mallocPointer(1);
STBVorbis.stb_vorbis_decode_filename("test.mp3", channelsPtr, sampleRatePtr, dataPtr);
sampleRate = sampleRatePtr.get(0);
AL11.alBufferData(buffer, AL11.AL_FORMAT_STEREO16, dataPtr.getByteBuffer(dataPtr.sizeof()), sampleRate);

source = AL11.alGenSources();
AL11.alSourcei(source, AL11.AL_BUFFER, buffer);
return true;
When this code runs I get an access violation and my program shuts down. It does not give more specific information than this:

Am I doing something wrong with my pointers?
