    sox-play

    node module to play sound files via sox's play command

    You will need to install sox before use.

    If you want to use MP3 files, you will also need libsox-fmt-mp3

    Usage

    var AudioPlayer = require('sox-play');
     
    var player = new AudioPlayer({file:'/home/pixnbits/Music/birds.ogg'}); // http://www.portal2sounds.com/2265
     
    player.on('start', function(filePath){
      console.log('started playing', filePath);
    });
     
    player.on('status', function(status){
      console.log('status! ', status.position);
      /*
      status: {
        loaded: 0-1 (%)
        position: PlayerPosition instance (see below)
        remaining: PlayerPosition  instance
        dataPlayed: strings like '14k'
      }
      PlayerPosition : {
        hours
        minutes
        seconds
        frac
      }
      */
    });
     
    player.on('stop', function(filePath){
      console.log('stopped playing', filePath);
    });
     
    player.play();

    In addition, you can use an interpolated position whenever you want:

    console.log('guessing position:', player.guessPosition());

    The guess is simply the last reported position plus whatever time has transpired since then.

    You can also stop easily:

    player.stop(); // SIGINT
    // or
    player.stopHard(); // SIGKILL

    Due to the nature of the spawned process, .stop() will not end immediately. However, .stopHard() is done via SIGKILL so it is not without fault.

    Install
