Software component which decompresses audio. It must be designed to work with ACM or DirectShow. Note that different compression methods require different decompressors. There is no universal decompressor capable of decoding all compressed streams.
The audio device that will play the sound. This is usually your sound card. Some computers have more than one sound playback device. You choose which sound playback device will play the sound by selecting the corresponding audio renderer.
The portion of the file holding the audio data. The audio data might be compressed to save disk space. The data has to be decompressed using an audio decompressor before you can play (hear) it.
When "getting" a BSTR property, the memory containing the string is allocated with SysAllocString. When this string is no longer needed, free this memory by calling SysFreeString if you are working in an environment such as C or C++ that does not automatically delete the memory. VB automatically deletes the memory, so VB programmers do not need to free the memory themselves.
