QB64 is a modern extended BASIC programming language that retains QBasic/QuickBASIC 4.5 compatibility and compiles native binaries for Windows, Linux, and macOS.

The _SNDSETPOS statement changes the current/starting playing position in seconds of a sound.


_SNDSETPOS handle&, position!



To check the current playing position in an MP3 file, use _SNDPLAY with _SNDGETPOS printed in a loop

SoundFile& = _SNDOPEN("YourSoundFile.mp3") '<<< your MP3 sound file here!
_SNDSETPOS SoundFile&, 5.5   'set to play sound 5 1/2 seconds into music 
_SNDPLAY SoundFile&  'play sound 
Do: _LIMIT 60     
   LOCATE 5, 2: PRINT "Current play position> "; _SNDGETPOS(SoundFile&)
LOOP UNTIL _KEYDOWN(27) OR NOT _SNDPLAYING(SoundFile&) 'ESC or end of sound exit
