Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

QAudioBuffer is used by the QAudioDecoder class to hand decoded audio data over to the application. An audio buffer contains data in a certain QAudioFormat that can be queried using format() . It is also tagged with timing and duration information.

To access the data stored inside the buffer, use the data() or constData() methods.

Audio buffers are explicitly shared, in most cases, you should call detach() before modifying the data.

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer(numFrames, format[, startTime=-1])

Parameters

Create a new, empty, invalid buffer.

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.byteCount()
Return type

qsizetype

Returns the size of this buffer, in bytes.

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.duration()
Return type

int

Returns the duration of audio in this buffer, in microseconds.

This depends on the format() , and the frameCount() .

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.format()
Return type

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioFormat

Returns the format of this buffer.

Several properties of this format influence how the duration() or byteCount() are calculated from the frameCount() .

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.frameCount()
Return type

qsizetype

Returns the number of complete audio frames in this buffer.

An audio frame is an interleaved set of one sample per channel for the same instant in time.

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.isValid()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this is a valid buffer. A valid buffer has more than zero frames in it and a valid format.

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.sampleCount()
Return type

qsizetype

Returns the number of samples in this buffer.

If the format of this buffer has multiple channels, then this count includes all channels. This means that a stereo buffer with 1000 samples in total will have 500 left samples and 500 right samples (interleaved), and this function will return 1000.

frameCount()

PySide6.QtMultimedia.QAudioBuffer.startTime()
Return type

int

Returns the time in a stream that this buffer starts at (in microseconds).

If this buffer is not part of a stream, this will return -1.
