Function Parameters

int channel channel.

Return Value

(int) Returns non-zero if channel is playing, zero otherwise. If channel is -1, return the total number of channel playings.


If the channel is currently playing, this function returns 1. Otherwise it returns 0.

If the specified channel is -1, all channels are checked, and this function returns the number of channels currently playing.

You may not specify MAX_CHANNEL_POST for a channel.

Paused channels are treated as playing, even though they are not currently making forward progress in mixing.


This function is available since SDL_mixer 3.0.0.
