(This function is part of SDL_mixer, a separate library from SDL.)


Get a music decoder's name.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3_mixer/SDL_mixer.h>


const char * Mix_GetMusicDecoder(int index);

Function Parameters

int index index of the music decoder.

Return Value

(const char *) Returns the music decoder's name.


The requested decoder's index must be between zero and Mix_GetNumMusicDecoders()-1. It's safe to call this with an invalid index; this function will return NULL in that case.

This list can change between builds AND runs of the program, if external libraries that add functionality become available. You must successfully call Mix_OpenAudio() before calling this function, as decoders are activated at device open time.


This function is available since SDL_mixer 3.0.0.
