[Mac] SFML using deprecated Carbon Component Manager ?
« on: November 04, 2015, 11:38:20 pm »
Hi there!
I just recently passed to OSX 10.11.1 and noticed a warning on exit when using the SFML audio module. It says

2015-11-04 23:17:10.816 Breakout-Clone
[8530:1171230] 23:17:10.816 WARNING:  140: This application, or a library it uses, is using the
deprecated Carbon Component Manager for hosting Audio Units. Support for this will be removed
in a future release. Also, this makes the host incompatible with version 3 audio units. Please
transition to the API's in AudioComponent.h.

And here is the minimal code that trigger it!

#include "ResourcePath.hpp"
#include <SFML/Audio.hpp>

int main(int, char const**)
{
    sf::SoundBuffer Buffer;
   
    Buffer.loadFromFile(resourcePath() + "Sound.ogg");
   
    sf::Sound newSound;
    newSound.setBuffer(Buffer);
   
    newSound.play();
   
}

The warning is triggered on exit ( since it's a deprecation issue ) and is also triggered while using sf::Music

I hardly used SFML for sounds purpose, so I didn't noticed this until now !
I'm currently using SFML 2.3.2 alongside Xcode 7.0.1 and since i found no issue request about this, I wanted to ask if the problem comes from me ( which would be quite astonishing ) or if there is a fix already planned?

Thanks you for listening

Thanks for reporting it.

It might be related to OpenAl-soft in fact. See https://github.com/kcat/openal-soft/issues/20.

Could you try to replace OpenAl.framework from SFML's extlibs by OS X's version from /System/Library/Frameworks, (probably) recompile SFML and your application?

Sorry for the delay! I did and right now, everything works smoothly, both for test cases and my app! Thanks ^^

Okay, cool. Thanks for the info.

Just so you know, we switched from Apple's OpenAl to OpenAl-soft because of some threading issues. See here: https://github.com/SFML/SFML/issues/541.

Apparently a patch was released: https://github.com/kcat/openal-soft/issues/20#issuecomment-156602570

If you can build OpenAL and test it that would be great as I don't yet have installed 10.11  :)

Hello! I'm new to c++ and SFML, but I'm trying to help out with this. I've cmake > make on the OpenAL master folder, and I'm including a screenshot of the files. How do I go about turning all this stuff into a .framework file so that I can add it to /Library/Frameworks? Let me know, and I'd be happy to test it.

Secondly, I'm getting three other errors:
  • AL lib: (WW) UpdateDeviceParams: SSE performs best with multiple of 4 update sizes (1114)
  • Failed to open sound file "[path]/oh-yeah.aiff" (format not supported) (.aiff files used to be supported, and the current SFML documentation still lists it)
  • AL lib: (EE) alc_cleanup: 1 device not closed

Is it safe to assume that these will be fixed with the Open Al patch? Thanks for you help.

Great to hear someone is interested in solving this issue! :-)

Last time it was built it was Ceylo who did it. The step should be available somewhere here: https://github.com/SFML/SFML/issues/541

If you've found a piece of documentation that states otherwise, then there's a mistake... Do you remember where you read that? Because from http://www.sfml-dev.org/documentation/2.3.2/classsf_1_1InputSoundFile.php we get:
Quote
The supported audio formats are: WAV, OGG/Vorbis, FLAC.

Regarding the warning (WW) and the error (EE), I don't know exactly what they are about. Do you have a minimal piece of code that reproduce it with the current master version of SFML?

This should be fixed with https://github.com/SFML/SFML/pull/1057. Could you test it? Thanks!

First of all, I'm so sorry I didn't get back to this. Things came up, and I didn't have a chance to look into it.

I added the new OpenAL framework, and it seems to have fixed the huge error message that was coming up. But now, when I tested it with a brand new SFML project with the default template, this is the message that comes up:

AL lib: (WW) UpdateDeviceParams: SSE performs best with multiple of 4 update sizes (1114)

Hope that helps.

Great! Thanks for having tested it.

Regarding this warning, I can't do anything about it. I believe this is a bug in OpenAL-soft on OS X 10.11 as I don't have this issue. You might want to report it yourself since you can test it. In case you do it, I've used this script to build OpenAL-soft as a framework.

Awesome! I posted a new issue. We'll see what comes of it. Thanks again.
