flutter_audio_desktop

A simple yet functional :notes: audio library for Flutter Desktop.

Right now, as it is just a start, it supports MP3 playback. I'll try to increase the domain of support formats with time & plan is to provide metadata of a track aswell.

Feel free to open issue anytime.

:arrow_down: Install

Mention in your pubspec.yaml requirements:

dependencies:
  ...
  flutter_audio_desktop: ^0.0.5

:triangular_ruler: Usage

// Start AudioPlayer.
var audioPlayer = new AudioPlayer();

// Load audio file.
audioPlayer.load('/home/alexmercerind/music.mp3');

// Start playing loaded audio file.
audioPlayer.play();

// Get audio duration.
print('Duration Of Track: ${audioPlayer.getDuration()}');

// Change playback volume.
audioPlayer.setVolume(0.5);
print('Changed volume to 50%.');

// Change playback position.
audioPlayer.setPosition(Duration(seconds: 10));

// Get playback position.
print('Position of playback after skipping 10 seconds: ${audioPlayer.getPosition()}');

Timer(Duration(seconds: 10), () {

    // Pause the playback.
    audioPlayer.pause();
    print('Playback of audio stopped after 10 seconds.');
}

You can see this simple example app, if you are confused with the usage.

:wrench: How It Works ?

One word, C++. It calls native methods using dart's MethodChannel. It uses miniaudio from David Reid.

I wrote this simple wrapper in C++ around his library to get this working.

There is not any audio playback library for Flutter Desktop at the moment, so I decided to write one myself.

:love_letter: Thanks to David Reid.
