Streams a MP3 file ()

SWFMovie {
  int streamMP3(mixed mp3file,
                float skip);


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

Streams the given MP3 file mp3file.

This method is not very robust in dealing with oddities (can skip over an initial ID3 tag, but that's about it).

Note that the movie isn't smart enough to put enough frames in to contain the entire mp3 stream- you'll have to add (length of song * frames per second) frames to get the entire stream in.



Can be a file pointer returned by fopen() or the MP3 data, as a binary string.


Number of seconds to skip.

Return Values

Return number of frames.

Example 1345. Streaming example

// The file is 11.85 seconds at 12.0 fps = 142 frames
